Warp plasma conduitEdit
A warp plasma conduit directed high energy electro-plasma, known as warp plasma or drive plasma, from a warp core, through the ship it was on, to plasma injectors in the nacelle tubes. (TNG: "Phantasms"; ENT: "The Forgotten")
In 2063, the time-displaced crew of the USS Enterprise-E assisted Zefram Cochrane with making repairs to his warp ship. Since the craft's warp plasma conduit had been damaged, Lieutenant Barclay found a length of copper tubing and suggested that it be used to replace that damaged component. Commander La Forge approved, but noted that it would have to be reinforced with a nanopolymer. (Star Trek: First Contact)

An EPS conduit takes small amounts of plasma from the warp core or the impulse engines and redirects it throughout the ship for use in powering other systems, such as weapons and navigational deflectors.
In 2154, Trip Tucker warned T'Pol that tying Enterprise NX-01's impulse reactors directly into the deflector array to create a large deflector pulse would rupture every EPS conduit on the ship. (ENT: "Countdown")
In 2153, a plasma conduit rupture aboard a Xindi-Primate ship was faked by Archer's crew to explain the Xindi crew's loss of consciousness, when in fact they'd had their memories wiped in an effort to extract information. (ENT: "Stratagem")
In November 2154, Hoshi Sato feigned annoyance about "noisy" plasma conduits that ran across the ceiling in her quarters aboard Enterprise NX-01. This was done in order to prepare Captain Archer for his dealings with Ambassador Gral, whose people thrived on arguments. (ENT: "Babel One")
A Bajoran transport carrying Kai Winn Adami and Vedek Bareil Antos to Deep Space 9 in 2371 had a molecular fracture in one of its plasma conduits. The conduit collapsed, destroying the entire relay system. (DS9: "Life Support")
Also in 2371, a phase variance in plasma conduit 3 inhibited Voyager's thrusters. This was caused by Torres, Seska and Carey making an illicit attempt to use a spatial trajector. (VOY: "Prime Factors")
Lon Suder tried to use an EPS conduit to dispose of the body of Crewman Darwin after he murdered him, but Suder damaged the conduit while putting the body inside and, as a result, the remains were only severely burned instead. (VOY: "Meld")
An overloaded plasma conduit was the possible explanation for a hull rupture on deck 11 aboard the Voyager in 2374. Later, it was discovered that no plasma conduit was overloaded but an intruder accessed the Voyager through a hatch in Jefferies tube 84. (VOY: "Prey")
Also that year, malfunctioning bioneural gel packs on Voyager caused false readings to be fed to the sensors, which therefore incorrectly showed plasma conduits were rupturing on decks seven and thirteen. (VOY: "One")
Later that year, Harry Kim untruthfully claimed to Paris to have been checking the plasma conduits in section 22 of the Varro generational ship, when he had in fact been with Derran Tal. (VOY: "The Disease")
