Carbon is a chemical element, the 6th element on the periodic table.

Class M planets typically support carbon-based lifeforms, something the silicon-based Horta found entirely alien. (ENT episode: "Observer Effect"; DS9 novel: Devil in the Sky)

In 2254, upon observing the carbon scoring on the warp nacelle of the crashed shuttlecraft Apollo on Darien 224 Captain Christopher Pike hypothesized it may have been taken down by a lightning strike. (EV comic: "Cloak & Dagger (Part 1)")

In 2265 the USS Bombay's main sensor array, for reasons unfathomable to chief engineer Kevin Judge, became blind to carbon. (VAN novel: Harbinger)
