A search pattern was a maneuver performed aboard a starship to locate someone or something.

In 2267, Montgomery Scott performed a search pattern for a missing freighter but noticed a trap to navigate the USS Enterprise away from Capella IV. (TOS: "Friday's Child")

Later that year, despite finding nothing but debris in star system L-370, where previously seven planets had existed, James T. Kirk ordered Hikaru Sulu to continue a search pattern to find the source of the USS Constellation's distress call. (TOS: "The Doomsday Machine")

In 2372, Commander Chakotay ordered a standard search pattern for the continuous scans of the surface of a planet controlled by the Mokra Order to find the missing away team. (VOY: "Resistance")
