Top definition
A phenomenon seen in many sci-fi movies/TV programs by which any damage to a spaceship (regardless of location) is seen as sparks and/or fire in the bridge/command center of said spacecraft. First experiences with the effect were on the bridge of the USS Enterprise, piloted by the illustrious/infamous Captain James T. Kirk of Starfleet Command (hence the name).
Scotty: We've 'ad an 'it on on the most unimportant part of the ship Cap'in. I can' hold her!

Kirk: Oh god, the sparks and/or fire are/is everywhere!!1 We're experienceing one hell of an Enterprise Effect.
