For additional meanings of "Rock", please see Rock.

Rock was a naturally-occurring solid substance composed of minerals.

In 2153, Travis Mayweather beamed a rock aboard Enterprise NX-01, originating in an asteroid field. According to Trip Tucker it had a good isotope density. (ENT: "Impulse")

According to the text commentary by Mike and Denise Okuda, the reason for the different appearance of the rock on the transporter platform compared to the ones in space might be the good isotope density.

The holodeck simulation of an Earth park aboard the USS Enterprise included a loose rock, which caused Wesley Crusher to fall into the water in 2364. (TNG: "Encounter at Farpoint")

Commander William Riker asked for rocks to be thrown at the IRW Haakona following the USS Enterprise's disabling by the Iconian probe which prompted a smile out of Ensign Williams. (TNG: "Contagion")

The preindustrial civilization of Barkon IV incorrectly believed that rock was one of the four basic elements of the universe, along with fire, sky and water. Rock was believed to be found in everything in existence, and could be felt in an object's weight and hardness. (TNG: "Thine Own Self")

Jadzia Dax once told Major Kira that she was a champion window breaker and that she was deadly on a dark night with a few rocks. (DS9: "Duet")
