The White Rabbit's footprints
Footprints in the shape of a Starfleet insignia
footprint was the print left behind by one or several feet. Animal footprints might be known as tracks.
2256, Captain Philippa Georgiou deliberately walked in the shape of a Starfleet delta, creating an image in the sand on the Crepusculan homeworld. This was done in order to enable the USS to locate and retrieve herself and Shenzhou Commander Michael Burnham. Upon encountering their own footprints ahead of them, Burnham mistakenly believed they had been walking together in aimless circles and were therefore lost, as she was unable to see the shape the prints made from her vantage point on the ground.
