Janeway’s holonovel gets weird, the EMH is only six inches tall, and everyone starts hallucinating, all while trying to get through a hostile region of space. The Star Trek: Voyager Rewatch has “Persistence of Vision.”
Two of my favorite moments in this episode are brief, but very effective. We see the Bothans’ attack on Tuvok only briefly, but Tim Russ with just subtle changes to his facial expressions beautifully sells both the rational Vulcan’s disbelief of what he sees, yet also the longing for what he does see, in only forty-two seconds of screen time. The other is Paris, who is very much not drawn in by the image of his father, and Robert Duncan McNeill puts a lot of fraught emotions into his assurances to Janeway that he’s not even tempted to look at the viewscreen.
