The Secret Behind Geordi La Forge's Visor

Geordi La Forge was born blind and yet he can see better than anyone else on the Enterprise thanks to his signature visor.

It may look like a hair clip, and clash with everything in his wardrobe, but as this comic by Caldwell Tanner shows Geordi's visor gives him the extraordinary ability to see what his fellow crewmates wish to remain hidden. And Captain Picard has some 'splainin' to do about that tattoo!

[more nerd] and even if he did have the needed ocular implants, that's NOT how his visor works. It registers energy patterns, radiation, and various elements in the environment. He doesn't actually "see" with it. Not only is the view through Geordi's visor shown to us in the series - there's also an episode where Q gives him real sight briefly and he can finally see everyone and is moved by it. [/more nerd]
