I know this is an unusual question, I hope it is not closed. I am looking specifically for the ringtone used in series Star trek Voyager, episode Scorpion. It happens when 7of9, Janeway and Tuvok are on the Borg cube and species 8472 are closing in.

At that time, there is a Red Alert. Does anyone know where I can get the audio file. I searched it on net and only came up with the below YouTube video which is just of 4 seconds.

A slightly longer scene with the same red alert sound can be heard here

Thanks a lot.

  • There are software apps for making your own ringtones. I'm sure you could just record the sound yourself, or extract it from a video/audio clip, and make a ringtone from it. Sep 5, 2015 at 15:22

    You mean you're looking for a ringtone of the sound that was used. They didn't use a ringtone in the episode. :P

    @Joachim : Seriously, I thought you saw 7, Janeway, Tuvok taking a selfie and Tuvok complaining selfies are illogical. Watch the episode again my friend.. :P Sep 5, 2015 at 15:51
  • @RemyLebeau : There is some other noise, the only reason why I just copied that video Sep 5, 2015 at 16:13

It is the Borg Red Alert signal. You can find it, along Yellow alert one in Star Trek: Starfleet Command 3 game here


I haven't been able to find that exact sound, but the following should be fairly close:

All of the above have been sourced from TrekCore; if none of these are quite what you are looking for, you're bound to find another excellent sound there - they have a fantastic repository!

As for the exact sound, I have taken the liberty of generating an mp3 file for you, which can be found here. As I say, it's taken directly from the video in the original question, but probably will suffice for a ringtone.

As for making a ringtone, I'm not sure what operating system you're running, but hopefully these mp3 files will be of use! If it's an iPhone, try these instructions for using iTunes
