Searching for a vision....
12 February 2015 | by MartinHaferSee 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.
