Nanite trap

Three nanite traps

A trap is a physical device or a tactic used to catch someone or something.

In 2270, while in the rec room, Hikaru Sulu, Leonard McCoy and Nyota Uhura fell into a covered pit trap set up by the USS Enterprise's computer. (TAS: "The Practical Joker")

In 2366, when a science project of Wesley Crusher's went wrong and some nanites escaped his laboratory, he put small traps all over the ship, including Ten Forward, in order to catch the tiny nanites. He was successful and caught at least one nanite. (TNG: "Evolution")

Kathryn Janeway suspected a trap when her "contact" wore shiny military boots and she considered him a member of the Mokra Order. (VOY: "Resistance")

In 2372, when stranded on a planned dubbed New Earth, Captain Kathryn Janeway used traps to catch the native insects. (VOY: "Resolutions")

In 2375, the Hazari apparently did not cover all possible flight paths the USS Voyager could take, but Captain Janeway was convinced those open routes were in fact traps. Later on, Kurros suspected Janeway had set up a trap when the Hazari were attacking the Voyager. (VOY: "Think Tank")

In the final draft script of TOS: "Miri" but not in the final version of that episode, Kirk and Spock speculated that a distress call which they, aboard the USS Enterprise, had detected coming from a planet which looked identical to Earth could be a lure to trap the starship's crew, such as by ambushing or otherwise tricking them.
