Eidetic memory, sometimes referred to as photographic memory or total recall, was a psychological term referring to an ability to recall images in near-photographic detail. People with such memory might claim to "see" words. (Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home)

Federation doctors considered it an amazing gift. (VOY: "Eye of the Needle"). However, it was a normal trait in some species, including Borg, and famously Cardassians. (VOY: "11:59"; DS9: "The Maquis, Part I")
