'''Bussard collectors''' are a type of [[technology]] used by [[Starfleet]] to use [[magnetism|magnetic field]]s to collect interstellar [[gas]] [[molecule]]s for use as fuel. Since the most common free gas in the universe is [[hydrogen]], this is the usual substance collected. Hydrogen is then taken from the Bussard collectors and enriched into [[deuterium]] or [[tritium]] for fuel use and then [[Starfleet tanker]]s are used to transport it.
