A schematic, technical schematic, or technical manual was a guide to the workings of a starship, space station, or device.

Schematics of Enterprise NX-01 were normally displayed on background monitors throughout the ship. (ENT: "Terra Nova", "Breaking the Ice", "Civilization", "Fortunate Son")

While on the surface of Terra Nova and investigating the disappearance of the SS Conestoga colonists, Travis Mayweather informed Captain Jonathan Archer that they had the schematics of the communications tower of the colony. Archer told him to see if the data buffer was still intact. (ENT: "Terra Nova")

During a mission briefing in August 2151, the senior staff aboard Enterprise reviewed schematics of the Y-class Earth Cargo Service freighter ECS Fortunate. (ENT: "Fortunate Son")

In 2152, Commander Trip Tucker gave schematics of Enterprise on a PADD as a gift to the alien boy Q'ell. (ENT: "Marauders")

In a deleted scene from "Fight or Flight", an away team from the Enterprise studied a schematic of the power layout aboard an Axanar cargo ship and identified the power couplings and transfer conduits on it.

While not in use, the shuttlepods aboard Enterprise feature schematics of the pods on the cockpit monitors. (ENT: "The Catwalk")

The Vissian chief engineer gave Tucker insight about the engines aboard the Vissian starship and demonstrated a schematic of the engine. (ENT: "Cogenitor")

In 2154, Tucker packed a technical manual for Enterprise when he was transferring to another NX-class ship, the Columbia. (ENT: "Affliction")

In 2267, Khan Noonien Singh requested access to the USS Enterprise's technical manuals. Later, upon learning that he had disabled the ship's intruder control systems, Spock remarked that Khan's reading had been very thorough. (TOS: "Space Seed")

In 2364, Commander William T. Riker came up with a schematic of the explosion site on Quadra Sigma III. (TNG: "Hide And Q")

The same year, Data told Captain Picard that Admiral Mark Jameson was wrong with his information about the tunnel system on Mordan IV as the schematics show a different tunnel system. (TNG: "Too Short A Season")

Data would be able to stop the Minosian weapon system when he could see the program's schematics. (TNG: "The Arsenal of Freedom")

In 2365, when asked by William T. Riker why he hadn't kept in touch, Kyle Riker lamented that there weren't any tech manuals for being a parent. (TNG: "The Icarus Factor")

In 2366, telepathic mission specialist Tam Elbrun read Captain Picard's mind and informed Data to hurry to the bridge with an isolinear chip which contained their orders, as well as technical schematics to be scanned. (TNG: "Tin Man")

In 2369, Miles O'Brien, frustrated with the run-around Deep Space 9's computer system was giving him – encouraging him to consult the Cardassian operational guidelines – retorted, "I don't want to read your tech manual." (DS9: "The Forsaken")

In 2370, O'Brien brought several recent technical update manuals with him, much to the disappointment of his wife, during their first vacation in five years without Molly. (DS9: "Tribunal")

In 2371, Tom Paris replicated a cytoplasmic stimulator in sickbay, based on the design schematics from the ship's medical database. (VOY: "Phage")

In 2371, B'Elanna Torres, The Doctor, and Captain Kathryn Janeway performed an internal systems scan of holodeck 2. The displayed scan in the EMH's office included a schematic of the holodeck. (VOY: "Heroes and Demons")

Seven of Nine and Harry Kim worked on and completed the schematics for Astrometrics in 2374. (VOY: "Revulsion")

After he was relieved of duty earlier than expected, Tom Paris went into the science lab where he accessed a vessel schematic of the Voyager to locate B'Elanna Torres. (VOY: "Scientific Method")

In 2374 of an alternate timeline, Obrist sent Tom Paris a schematic of the weapon ship's temporal core on a tabletop console in his quarters. (VOY: "Year of Hell, Part II")

While on board the USS Prometheus in 2374, The Doctor accessed the ship's design schematics to learn more about this prototype. Later, The Doctor asked the EMH Mark II to show him the schematics of the ship's ventilation system. (VOY: "Message in a Bottle")

The same year, Kathryn Janeway was studying the schematics of a Hirogen relay station. (VOY: "Hunters")

A partial, badly corroded schematic found in the Cyrik Ocean was used for the Kyrian reconstruction of Voyager as the warship Voyager in the holoprogram The Voyager Encounter. The condition of the schematic was responsible for inaccurate details in the program. (VOY: "Living Witness")

In 2375, Commander Chakotay retrieved data including schematics of the Species 8472 energy focusing ship and Terrasphere 8 when he accessed the desktop monitor in Valerie Archer's living quarters. Later, Seven of Nine prepared the design schematics of the Borg nanoprobe technology on a PADD as requested by Species 8472. (VOY: "In the Flesh")

That same year, a silver Blood duplicate of B'Elanna Torres spent four hours studying warp field schematics in an attempt to discover why subspace radiation from Voyager's enhanced warp drive had critically damaged the ship's infrastructure, despite studies showing that it wouldn't, not realizing that the ship, like herself, was a duplicate. (VOY: "Course: Oblivion")

In 2381, Sam Rutherford discovered schematics to Nova One that was attacking non-Starfleet-affiliated ships in Nick Locarno’s hideout on New Axton, making Carol Freeman realize the man they were sent to protect was actually behind the attacks. (LD: "The Inner Fight")
