History and specifics[edit | edit source]

When a group of baby Horta hatched on Deep Space 9 in 2370 they found the vast array of different substances they could sense, including polymers, rather overwhelming. (DS9 novel: Devil in the Sky)

In 2376 during a Jem'Hadar attack on Deep Space 9 a cloud polymer gas was released from a temp bank of atmospheric regulators. A Benzite, Monyodin, was exposed to the gas which dissolved the alveoli in his lungs, resulting in his death. (DS9 - Avatar novel: Avatar, Book One)
