I'm watching Symbiosis right now and I noticed towards the beginning, in the scene where Riker and Yar are walking through corridor from the cargo bay to the observation lounge, there was some unusual noise at the top of the frame for the duration of the scene, it looked as if the original film had been damaged, it appeared similar to when a VHS gets worn out / damaged.
I noticed that, though, I don't think it is from the film being damaged. It looks to me that as the camera dolly was going backward on the rail, the fabric framing on the lens might have come a bit loose and consequently, entered the active frame.
I agree. Though, I'd say it is most likely the top French flag (adjustable fin) on the camera's matte box vibrating due to the dolly's movement, probably on wheels (carpet is fully visible, so no dolly track).
