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
Did You Know?
Persistence of vision is the phenomenon of the eye where an afterimage is thought to persist for a small fraction of a second on the retina. The belief in persistence of vision is based on the mistaken belief that human perception of motion is the result of persistence of vision. This myth probably stems from the idea that the human eye is just like a camera, when in fact there is much more to it then that. Misinterpretation of this phenomenon over several centuries has led to the persistence of this myth. One explanation may be iconic memory; but this is a subject of many arguments among different branches of the medical profession. See more
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
