Coded directive tape was a type of record tape in use in the 23rd century which contained plain or encrypted orders to be reviewed or fed directly into a starship's computers.

In 2267, USS Enterprise First Officer Spock used prepared tapes to feed falsified orders to the ship's computer from Starbase 11 directing the vessel to proceed to Talos IV under automated helm control. (TOS: "The Menagerie, Part I")
