A plasma field was an energetic plasma disruption located in the Badlands. These fields were quite extensive and made starship navigation very difficult. Sensors are also limited by plasma fields. (DS9: "Heart of Stone", "For the Cause", "For the Uniform")
While on their way back to the USS Enterprise-D in 2369, Geordi La Forge told Deanna Troi, Captain Picard, and Data about his experience to touch a plasma field at the psychological conference they've just visited. He described this as an amazing experience and told that the plasma moved up onto his arm and was very warm, like "taking a bath in pure energy". (TNG: "Timescape")
In 2373, Benjamin Sisko and Michael Eddington used the impulse exhaust of a Danube-class runabout to detonate a plasma field aft of them, hoping to damage or destroy several pursuing Jem'Hadar attack ships. The plan worked and the detonation of the plasma field knocked the enemy ships off course. (DS9: "Blaze of Glory")
