Seems like a subD object. The methode of Prospector will work, but only in CC subD's. It will also gonna look like a blob.

If you want it to look like a slice, select all the point, hit 'e' and the 'h' and then shift F8. This will extend the polys with an extra top and bottom ring, select the scale tool and set the action centre to your selection. Now scale a very tiny amount UP in your front view, about 1 to 0.5%.
When done, drop the tool and deselect all pionts. Now go into perspective view and manualy select four point each time and hit 'p'. This will make a poly between the selected point. When you've closed your object this way, you'll have your slice of...thingy. And it works in normal subD's.

There is also a 'skin' tool, but I don't know how it works.
