In 2153, magnetic containment on Enterprise was fluctuating, due to the Sphere-Builder test subject trying to destroy Enterprise by destabilizing the magnetic seals on the warp core. Malcolm Reed and Major J. Hayes were able to defeat the Sphere-Builder by reversing the polarity of the plasma coils to trigger a feedback pulse. (ENT: "Harbinger")
While visiting Deep Space 9 in 2369, Geordi La Forge was interested in purchasing a 21st century Ktarian plasma coil that he found in a shop on the Promenade in near perfect condition. (TNG: "Birthright, Part I")
In an unknown, future timeline, the USS Enterprise-D took a hit to its starboard plasma coil from the Klingons, which damaged the ship's cloaking device. Admiral William T. Riker had the Enterprise taken back to Federation space at warp 13, without the cloak. (TNG: "All Good Things...")
Loose plasma coils created large amounts of radiation. A Bajoran transport docking at Deep Space 9 in 2371 had a loose plasma coil, preventing the station from beaming off wounded passengers. (DS9: "Life Support")
The same year, the USS Enterprise-D encountered a D12 class Klingon Bird-of-Prey, which had been retired due to its defective plasma coils. The Enterprise then created a low-level ionic pulse to reset the coil and trigger the cloaking device. (Star Trek Generations)
In 2372, Bejal Otner reported that the plasma coil interlocks were activated when the USS Defiant was conducting tests on Dr. Lenara Kahn's theory of artificial wormholes, which the Federation was interested in investigating. (DS9: "Rejoined")
