    I guess I'm still not sure what you mean by reversed then. Have we gotten any that you intended yet?

    Lee,

    No, you haven't gotten any yet. An obvious example occurs in Court Martial when they are showing the film on the Bridge. It is reversed (people walk backward). This occurs in several more episodes (aurally and visually), albeit not so obviously.

    Hi Lou, Keep on Trekkin!

    Okay Scott, so the example I suggested of the warp drive sound going backyards to represent reversing the engines wasn't exactly what you had in mind. Or sounds that are reversed to create a new sound effect, those are not what you had in mind because they are sounds that sound normal.

    It's more like Controlled Experiment?

    I'm not sure, but doesn't Spock reverse the recording from the Time Vortex on his tricorder?

    Nelson,Yes, Controlled Experiment is exactly what I'm looking for, except you may include examples of either audio or video in your answers.

    Spock's example would count -- nice catch!

    Tomorrow is Yesterday reminded me of The Naked Time. The time warp footage on the screen went backyards, as well as the chronometers.

    Guys,

    You've both named some great examples. But I think my question was a bit too confusing to begin with, so I am just going to name a few of the examples and we can move on to the next question. (Either of you may go next if you wish.)

    Court Martial. This is the obvious one, with tape running backward.

    Obsession. The cloud creature moves into Garrovick's quarters, and then the tape is reversed as Scotty works his miracles.

    The Enterprise Incident. Kirk's eyes open and then they shut -- the tape is reversed to achieve this creepy effect.

    The Man Trap. This episode includes that wonderful slowing down of Crater's voice after he is hit with a phaser, but that's not really a reversal. It's more of a tape effect of sorts.

    The Paradise Syndrome. I'm not sure about the motion of the Enterprise as it moves in front of the asteroid while it travels 'backward' through space. For years, I've seen dual-motion in the footage during that scene. The ship and the asteroid are moving in similar (but not identical) motion, although I'm not sure what is going on there with the film.

    Now that you put it this way, it's very clear what you were asking! :)Those are very clear examples. We'd have eventually got around to them! The Enterprise moving backwards does look like the film moving in reverse. I wonder if it's the same footage from The Immunity Syndrome when the Enterprise backs out of the cell, I haven't seen the original in a while since the CGI version was out. The shot of Kirk opening his eyes and closing them is creepy! I always say to myself how cool it was they did it that way. And the cloud creature moving backwards is a good effect. I think they did the same thing on the planet when Spock fires his phaser to get a sample of the rock.

    Nelson,Thanks. I should have been more clear with my question. By the way, was your "We'd have eventually got around to them!" a paraphrase of our favorite TOS transporter technician? It sure sounds like Kyle's line in Wolf In the Fold.

    You're right about the cloud creature and Spock's firing of his phaser. That's the first instance of tape reversal in the episode. I thought of that after I had written about what occurs in Garrovick's quarters.

    I hadn't thought of that before regarding the shot included in The Immunity Syndrome, but I think you may be right. They do look similar.

    I'm off to The Official Star Trek Music Discussion thread. I discovered something a couple of nights ago that I wanted to share. :)

    Scott, yes, I was paraphrasing poor Mr. Kyle. :)

    I think my subscription was lost to the music thread, I'll go check that out.

    Well Lee, I don't have a question, so if you have one, fire away.

    Can you name all the episodes in which Dr. McCoy injects Captain Kirk with a hypo? Let's limit it to cases where we actually see the injection occur.

    How about The Naked Time, The Empath, and The Tholian Web for starters?

    Yes, those make a good start. The one in The Naked Time is such a great moment, too.

    Great question, and sound medical advice! Amok Time.

    Does Patterns of Force count when McCoy inserts the subcutaneous transponders?

    I don't care if they hit the broad side of a barn--the transponders count!3 to 2 so far. Halfway there.

    "Why should I aim at such a structure?" terrifically delivered line!"How long do you think you can keep taking the stuff, it'll blow you apart!"The Immunity Syndrome, I think McCoy gives Kirk a shot on camera at least once.
