"Mycoborer, experimental, GSA Patent Applied For. Do not remove from GalacTech Company premises without authorization, under penalty of immediate termination and criminal prosecution."
―The Warning Label[src]

A mycoborer was a still-in-development bioengineered product for digging holes in the ground suitable for laying pipes through at the time of Captain Vorpatril's Alliance. It was created by a GalacTech researcher on Earth who was a personal friend of haut Moira ghem Estif; the researcher allowed her to borrow some on the condition that she report to him how well it worked.

The mycoborer was activated by ammonia; the critters ate whatever carbon they found in the soil around them, leaving behind a tube with walls constructed from their waste products.

It appeared that further development was going to be needed to convince it to produce straight tubes without strange branchings.
