First one the comes to mind . . . "Double Red Alert!"
Which episode was that in? Makes me think of "Double Secret Probation."
"Double Red Alert" was from Conscience of the King, delivered by Capt. Kirk when Lenore Karidian put a phaser, set on overload, in the vent in Kirk's cabin - in order to eliminate him as one of the few remaining witnesses who can identify her father as Govenor Kodos of Tarsus IV.[/QUOTE]

Where red alert is simply an alert to immediate danger, double red could be shorthand for an internal emergency such as an impending hull breech which could trigger an evacuation of the area the alert is given from? In reality, it probably just sounded dire to the writers.
