** Also ''[[Film/StarTrekVITheUndiscoveredCountry The Undiscovered Country]]'' which has a Klingon Bird of Prey that can fire while cloaked - Uhura even says something to the effect of "if they're here, they're rigged for silent running."

** Later, the [[spoiler:Mesan Alignment]] develops ships that use a new type of propulsion that is completely invisible to gravitic sensors, the so-called Spider drive (it uses incredibly powerful {{Tractor Beam}}s to pull itself towards the [[SubspaceOrHyperspace hyperspace]] wall (which is everywhere). These new types of ships are, essentially, this 'verse's equivalent of submarines. Slow and fragile (no impeller wedges or [[DeflectorShield sidewalls]]), but hidden and capable of dealing great destruction without advance warning. Being GenreSavvy, the [[spoiler:Mesans]] also make sure the ship is as invisible to non-gravitic sensors as possible.

* In ''Videogame/Subnautica'', the Cyclops can be rigged for silent running to avoid detection from predators. Doing so also turns off the exterior floodlights and causes the interior lighting to turn red. The submarine is effectively invisible while Silent Running is active-predators won't notice the sub even if they swim straight into it!

* ''Series/{{Airwolf}}'' liked to do this all the time. Well, not literally ''all'' the time, because then they wouldn't get to draw attention to it, but that switch was flipped fairly often. One episode involved a group of criminals infiltrating a base in a helicopter (a normal one). They did this by shutting off the engine just before getting close, letting the inertia of the spinning rotor land them safely without making much noise. This actually tips Hawke about the identity of the criminals, as this trick was pioneered by him and his brother during the VietnamWar.

* During a face-off with a Russian submarine in Film/CrimsonTide, the USS Alabama--running silent--attempts to float its communications buoy and retrieve the rest of a disrupted message. The buoy rises slowly and silently as both crews wait for the other to make a move, and then the spool binds up, [[OhCrap sending a very audible screech through the water.]]

* ''Videogame/FromTheDepths'' has detection systems (like radar) for vessels which will massively improve their accuracy at the cost of lighting them up like a Christmas tree to sensors. Passive detection systems exist which can only pick up active sensors but have negligible emissions. Submarines in particular field mostly passive systems; you'll know there's one there, but your cannons won't be able to get a bead on it. Automated Control Blocks can disable and enable sensors on demand, so a fleeing ship can kill its sensors to reduce pursuer accuracy.
