Tritium was a basic atomic element, it is an isotope of hydrogen. Its nucleus consisted of a proton and two neutrons.

Tritium, similar to deuterium, was used as fuel in matter-antimatter reactions aboard starships like the USS Enterprise-D. It was stored in the deuterium tank. Engineers aboard Federation starships had access to technical manuals about the procedures for the loading, for the transfer of this gas from the tank, and safe handling practices of this gas. These manuals were stored in the Engineering Systems Database. (TNG: "Booby Trap", "Galaxy's Child")

In late 2375, tritium proved to be extremely important in helping the Federation Alliance to win the Dominion War. A Klingon chief engineer aboard the IKS Ki'tang adjusted the tritium intermix to compensate for a warp core containment problem. During the Second Battle of Chin'toka, the tritium made the ship invulnerable to the Breen energy dampening weapon. (DS9: "When It Rains...")
