Sound effects. Anybody want to refresh my memory?

First I'd like to say, I'm a sound effects maniac, especially in sci-fi franchises. However, it does irk me when I hear these Star Wars SFX in Star Trek because they seem so out of place...

However, I didn't start this thread to rant, but rather to get a refresher.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AuK_LBXE9_o Starting at 3:07, that warbling sound.

Anybody remember where it was in the Star Wars films? I'd like to say it's from the Millennium Falcon in The Empire Strikes Back, but I could be mistaken.

I can see that. It is a little weird. On the other hand, a number of ST's sound effects were recycled from earlier sources. The phaser sound was the hovering sound of the War of the Worlds Martian War Machines played faster, and the photon torpedo sound effect, while not quite identical to the sound of the War Machines' green disintegrator bolts, was created the same way (by striking a taut metal cable). And the bridge computer ambience, or at least part of it, was heard on pre-Trek episodes of The Twilight Zone (or was it The Outer Limits?).
