Super-heated helium plasma expelled at tremendous velocities forms the reaction mass. Because of the nature of the drive, the exhaust is extremely dangerous. It can not be used within planetary atmospheres. Passing through the exhaust plume at close range (~200km or less) can cause radiation damage to ships crews.
Because of these effects many systems have restrictions on using fusion drive within the local traffic area (10 planetary diameters). Restrictions range from strict control on when and where the drive may be aimed for course changes and to require the drive to run at reduced thrust.
