Hydrogen-carbon helix structures were a complex form of matter, a molecular configuration of the elements carbon and hydrogen.


Geordi La Forge found the atmosphere of the planet Theta VIII had a layer of hydrogen-carbon helix structures that blocked communications, sensor and transporter activity from the Federation starship USS Enterprise-D. It seemed likely these helix structures were the product of an alien intelligence, by the sophistication by which they allowed a perfect pocket of survivable atmosphere to form.
