Riker Alpha was an evasive maneuver devised by William T. Riker in 2367.

During a battle with a Borg cube, this ship attempted to lock onto the USS Enterprise-D secondary hull with a tractor beam. Riker ordered pattern Riker Alpha, which was a turn to port, to evade the beam. The maneuver was a success, with the beam missing the Federation starship. (TNG: "The Best of Both Worlds, Part II")
