An alloy is a combination, either in solution or compound, of two or more elements, at least one of which is a metal, and where the resulting material has metallic properties. The resulting metallic substance generally has properties significantly different from those of its components.

In 2153, Arctic Archaeology Team scientist Rooney was unable to identify the alloy she found in a Borg sphere debris field. (ENT: "Regeneration")

The hull of a class 2 shuttle was made from a tritanium alloy. (VOY: "Threshold")

The alien probe "Pup" was made of a form of corundium alloy. (DS9: "The Forsaken")

After Doctor Julian Bashir performed an autopsy on the Klingon first officer Hon-Tihl in 2369, he stated the cause of his death were the minor tritanium alloy fragments in his chest and upper arms and severe weapon burns. (DS9: "Dramatis Personae")

In 2370, some new tennis rackets were made of nillimite alloys. (DS9: "The Wire")

In 2373, the crew of the USS Voyager discovered that the supposed asteroid bombardment of a Nezu colony was in fact a deliberate attack when they found an alloy within an asteroid fragment. It was part of a guidance system used by the Etanian Order. (VOY: "Rise")

Since both duranium and tritanium are known to have been used in the hull construction of Starfleet vessels (TNG: "Where Silence Has Lease"; VOY: "Repentance") and both seem to be elements rather than alloys according to the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Technical Manual, it is possible although not certain that they may be combined to form an alloy in some circumstances. The Star Trek: The Next Generation Technical Manual however, indicates that these materials form separate layers of starship hulls.
