Plastics are a type of polymer material. The earliest known examples of plastic materials were synthesized from fossil fuel sources containing hydrogen, oxygen and carbon, and in many technologically-advanced civilizations, plastic is used for a variety of purposes.

Some of the internal bulkheads of Deep Space 9 were made from plastic. (DS9 novel: Devil in the Sky)
