Oxygen is a form of matter, a chemical element of the periodic table. Oxygen is vital for the survival of many carbon-based lifeforms, including Humans and other humanoids.

Oxygen is commonly found in the form of gas in the atmosphere of many class M planets across the galaxy, although at fairly low levels. It is also found in atmospheres of class L, class O and class P planets, making all capable of supporting most humanoid lifeforms. (ST reference: Star Charts)

Oxygen is a simpler element commonly know to readily interact with other types of matter, making it a prinicpal part of many life cycles, and as part of a great many chemical compounds, such as water and carbon dioxide. Other such compounds include carbon monoxide, ferrous oxides, nitrous oxide, clancium oxide, sodium oxide and tantalum bi-lithium thalo-dihydroxide.
