Storyline

Voyager seeks to pass through the space of a psychic, territorial alien. Captain Janeway suffers delusions in the form of characters from her favorite holonovel appearing outside of the holodeck. The Doctor and Kes must find a way to stop the psychic attacks before the whole crew is disabled, lost in their own visions. Written by Meribor

Goofs

When Voyager is attacked by the Bothan, Janeway calls for Kes to join her on the bridge, and Kes acknowledges with "Right away." However, Kes never shows up; in fact, she never even leaves sickbay, as can be seen later. Although Janeway was influenced by the Bothan at the time of her call, she was not yet fully delusional, and nothing indicates that her communication with Kes was not genuine. See more »

Quotes

Captain Kathryn Janeway: I don't intend to let you continue preying on others.
Bothan: How would you propose to stop me?
Captain Kathryn Janeway: We could destroy your technology. Or adjust your brainwave patterns to prevent telepathy. And then we could turn you over to the government of Mithren. We could even keep you confined in our brig, behind a force field.
Bothan: I'm sure you're very well intentioned, Captain; and I'd like to be able to accommodate you. But you see - I'm not really here!

Searching for a vision....
12 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Throughout most of the first couple seasons, "Star Trek: Voyager" sure seemed like a show that was looking for direction and purpose. While some folks rated every episode super-high, some strongly disliked them--and it's a sure sign that the show had a much harder time finding an audience than previous Star Trek series. "Persistence of Vision" is yet another show that really does little to advance the show's plot and is stuck aboard the ship--two things that clearly would indicate that the show was in severe trouble.

When the show begins, Captain Janeway is once again in the awful Gothic novel that I so truly hated in previous shows. However, oddly, after she leaves the holodeck she occasionally sees these characters throughout the ship. Later, some alien force begins projecting hallucinations in order to keep the ship from advancing any further.

The bottom line is that the quality of this show just isn't as good as earlier Trek shows. It's filled with gibberish, holo characters but no interesting aliens nor a plot that engages the viewer. Rather poor overall.
