A nebula is an interstellar cloud of matter, usually gases (such as hydrogen) and dust. Many nebulae are stellar nurseries.
Since sensors and other systems functioned poorly in some nebulae, they were often used by starships to strategic advantage in conflicts.
The USS Enterprise-D hid inside a nebula from a Borg cube, temporarily shielding them from the Borg's sensors. (TNG: "The Best of Both Worlds")

Later that year, a ship crewed by Hirogen prey holograms, led by Iden, hid from two Hirogen Template:ShipClass hunting vessels inside a nebula. In response, the Hirogen Alpha ordered one of his ships to circle the nebula, while the other entered it to drive the holograms out. Iden eventually left the nebula on his own to "liberate" three holograms on a nearby Nuu'Bari mining vessel. (VOY: "Flesh and Blood")
