Decomposition was the process by which organic substances were broken down into a simpler form of matter. Bodies of living organisms began to decompose soon after death.

In 2368, Data noted with scientific detachedness that there was a twelve per cent decomposition of the bitanium in the neural pathway links of his own recently discovered head. (TNG: "Time's Arrow")

In an alternate quantum reality in 2370, Data noted the beginnings of cellular decomposition in Geordi La Forge's corpse. (TNG: "Parallels")

In 2375, Morica Bilby's body was discovered in a river on New Sydney, partially decomposed by organic solvents in the water. (DS9: "Prodigal Daughter")

In 2376, Tom Paris facetiously described Mortimer Harren as "rotting away down on deck 15" of the USS Voyager. (VOY: "Good Shepherd")

Mezoti asked Neelix if the crew the crew of the Salvoxia were decomposed when the ship was found after drifting through space for eighty years. (VOY: "The Haunting of Deck Twelve")
