In the works: Starship Trivia

September 21, 2009 at 11:38 pm (Uncategorized)

Working on an idea for the weekly audio trivia segment that the Slice of SciFi podcast does. It’s fun stuff trying to identify movies and tv shows from various sound clips, usually all falling into a specific theme.

I don’t think anybody has done one yet that’s just the engine noises from famous sci-fi space ships. I think that could be interesting – not to mention a solid test for sci-fi geeks – can you identify spaceships just from the noise they make?

I’m currently downloading some software that based on forums should be able to rip audio tracks from video – which is a start.
Then just to get the video of the right ships.
I mean stuff like the Millenium Falcon and the Enterprise are obvious.
And I was thinking of adding a 5-second clip of complete silence and labeling it “Serenity” just cuz it’d be fun.
But I’m not sure what other ones to add – the Nostromo maybe?

Hmm… Maybe the Heart of Gold.
Or the Gunstar from The Last Starfighter…
Maybe the saucers from Earth vs the Flying Saucers could be fun…
Or a Cylon raider?

Anybody know of any other movie or tv space ships that have an identifiable sound?
