I think this is the best explenation of the alert system.

Yellow Alert- Possible Danger and or threat to the ship and its crew.

Red Alert- Imminent Danger or threat to the ship and its crew.

Condition Blue- Used in cases where ships systems are comprimised (an internal security threat), and/or a notice to secure all work stations

TNG "Brothers"- Data created an artificial problem with the life support that triggered condition blue.

TNG "The Hunted"- Condition Blue was activated when Roga Danar escaped from the brig, the condition blue, no doubt alerted the crew to secure all stations and alert security of an intrenal threat.

VOY "Message in a Bottle"- The Prometheus seperating was never actually classified as Condition Blue or Blue Alert. Blue lights just flashed, supposedly to allow the crew to know the ship is seperating and to secure their stations.

VOY Landing- The Blue lights are an indicator to the crew that the ship is entering an atmosphere to land, as seen in several episodes. This could presumably mean that the crew is to man and secure their stations.

Janeway did say "Blue Alert" in "The 37s."

Idon't think that Green Alert had any moving lines.

And plaid! What about plaid alert?

Do they play bagpipes over the ship's intercom and the replicators only serve haggis and single malt Scotch?

Rimmer: Lets step up to Red Alert.

Kryten: Are you certain sir? It would require changing the bulb.

On a serious note remember that in the TOS Episode: The Conscience of the King we had a Double Red Alert.

Except in "Bread and Circuses" where Kirk used it as a code phrase meaning "we're in trouble but can't talk but I'm sending this so the baddies will think I'm saying everything's all right."

exact words: "Condition green, all's well, Kirk out."

Betcha thought I wouldn't remember that...

DOH!!!! Sorry Montgomery. In my attempt to speed read I must have skipped past your post. GMTA eh?

I guess I should mention that a phaser on overload is why Kirk had called for the Double Red Alert in that episode.

Turn in next time when my next great blunder will be.......

Siegfried: Well, that was a special code used to tell the ship he'd been captured, but they shouldn't interfere (IIRC). But when the ship's condition is green, it means things are normal. Since "condition red" and "red alert" are equivalent, I suppose you could call it "green alert", but that would be a little inaccurate, seeing as it isn't really an "alert"...

Green Alert is possibly the stupidest thing I've ever heard of. Just one more brilliant example of Starfleet not listening to age-old wisdom:

K.I.S.S.

Soon, the Federation will give in to the Cows and all starships will take on the black & white color scheme...

Crap. I double-clicked the Submit button. Time to contact W3C and get the spec on forms updated...
