6. You’ll Never Watch Star Trek: TNG The Same Again
Turn on Netflix and fire up any episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Now pay careful attention to the characters as they walk through any of the ship’s sliding doors. If you’ve got observation skills as keen as Captain Picard’s, you’ll notice everyone gets quiet when the doors part.
The actors had to pause reciting their lines until the doors were fully open because the natural sound of the doors was so loud that it drowned out their dialogue. The unforgettable “swoosh” effect wasn’t just adding to the futuristic ambiance of the Starship Enterprise. Its main job was to cover up the unpleasant noise.
