In literature, a red herring was a metaphor derived literary device that intentionally misleads the audience to form a false conclusion detracting from the relevant plot of a story.

While the crew of Enterprise NX-01 tried to exact the location of the yet unknown Azati Prime from Degra, who eventually revealed that his family was on a colony near a red giant, Trip Tucker mused that "this red giant might be a red herring. He only told you his family was living near one of these stars. We don't know that the weapon is there." (ENT: "Harbinger")
