This is a sound effect that was created for the classic Star Trek TV series in the 1960s, presumably by the show's sound editor Sam Horta. Since then it's been used in some other shows Horta Editorial and eventually others have worked on. It's currently not available as-is on any professional sound effects libraries, but part of it is incorporated into Hollywoodedge, Laser Blasts CRT050601 on the Cartoon Trax Volume 1 sound effects library from The Hollywood Edge.
