Plasma is an ionized gaseous state of matter, which is commonly observed in arcs of electricity traveling through matter. In the plasma stage, matter can reach temperatures of over 3 million Kelvin and thus can't be contained in normal containers. Instead the plasma is usually contained with magnetic force fields used in plasma canisters and plasma infusers. The plasma can then be transferred through EPS conduits found in a starship's power transfer grid. (TNG reference: Star Trek: The Next Generation Technical Manual)

In 2254 the IKS Varchas was able to follow a plasma trail from the damaged shuttlecraft Icarus to its crashsite on the planet Prairie. (EV comic: "The Flat, Gold Forever")
