I don't know. I think whatever feature you invent has to seem interesting to a
lay-person. I would favour some sort of mysterious electron-dense mass, maybe
a modified woronin body. Who knows what it's made of.
Remember the shot on 'Outbreak' where they found that the new ebola-like virus

the film you can show some sexy-looking TEM or freeze-fracture shots.
Good luck with your writing!
