Rogueplanet NightVision Reed+Eska

Lieutenant Malcolm Reed wears a nightvision eyepiece whereas two Eska with him wear imaging goggles

Night vision was the name given to any piece of technology that permits someone to see in the absence of visible light.

In 2151, Captain Jonathan Archer led a landing party, consisting of Sub-Commander T'Pol, Lieutenant Malcolm Reed and Ensign Hoshi Sato, down to a rogue planet. Because there was no sun to illuminate it, the planet was eternally dark, forcing the Enterprise NX-01 crew members to use nightvision eyepieces.

The Eska also possessed night vision technology in their imaging goggles, which they used when hunting the Dakalan Wraiths on the planet. (ENT: "Rogue Planet")

The only appearance of night vision technology in any Star Trek series is in "Rogue Planet" However, the final draft script of "Extinction" referred to the Loque'eque as having "alien night vision", the final draft script of "Azati Prime" described a particular representation of a monitoring station as being shown in "a 'night vision' view", and the script of Star Trek: First Contact showed a 21st century militia commander using night vision goggles.
