Trek Two Years Ago
These were some of the major news items on October 5, 2000:
- StarTrek.com Updates
Paramount Pictures released the official synopsis for the upcoming episode 'Nightingale':
Searching for dilithium in the Delta Flyer with Neelix and Seven of Nine, Harry Kim intercedes in a conflict between two Delta Quadrant Races. While he manages to save a Kraylor ship from destruction, its command crew has been killed and they're in need of a Captain. Having been an Ensign his entire Starfleet career, Kim is tempted by the offer and assumes command of the vessel, but soon finds himself bearing the weight of leadership in a complicated and dangerous conflict.
- Kate Mulgrew Talks Final Season
Voyager actress Kate Mulgrew (Kathryn Janeway) talked about wrapping up all the show's dangling plot threads.
"We have to wrap up all these individual stories in which Janeway will be intricately involved. I think it's fait accompli. What's going to happen with Chakotay and the rest of the Maquis when we return? That alone will be two or three episodes, I'm sure. Very poignant and very tough. What's going to happen with Tom Paris? Certainly, what's going to happen to Seven of Nine will be provocative -- and one could say brutal -- as she faces the final confrontation with her humanity."
- 'Unimatrix Zero II' Overnight Ratings
Voyager's seventh season premiere rated strongly, scoring a 6.0 rating / 9 share. The series came fifth overall in the timeslot, although it was almost able to grab fourth place.
