Comb use

Deela using a comb

A comb was a small object with multiple narrowly-spaced projections called "teeth", used to style hair.

In 2268, Deela borrowed James T. Kirk's comb to fix her hair. (TOS: "Wink of an Eye")

To comb something meant to search it extensively. Bele accused Lokai of having combed the galaxy and still not found what he was looking for. (TOS: "Let That Be Your Last Battlefield")

In 2370, Benjamin Sisko said he and Jadzia Dax had combed through data on uninhabited Class M planets in the sector surrounding Deep Space 9, and found Draylon II to be a possible new homeworld for the Skrreea. (DS9: "Sanctuary")

In Sisko's 2373 captain's log, he mentioned combing the Demilitarized Zone for Michael Eddington. (DS9: "For the Uniform")

To go over something with a fine tooth comb was a metaphor for looking it over extremely closely and carefully. In 2371, Captain Kathryn Janeway instructed Tuvok to tell B'Elanna Torres to go over damaged sensor logs with a fine tooth comb. (VOY: "Cathexis")
