P/K All the Way, a Paris/Kim relationship site, has uploaded a digitized version of a UPN 9 News segment from the 15th of November, which features clips from the filming of next week's episode, 'Nightingale' and interviews with Garret Wang (Harry Kim) and Kate Mulgrew (Janeway). The file can be downloaded from here as a 480K RealMedia file, but you may have trouble accessing it due to server congestion so we have included a transcript below. There are also a couple of screenshots available at the site. Thanks go out to maxi for the heads up!

THE AGENTS OF VARIOUS VOYAGER CAST MEMBERS ARE BUSY LINING UP POST-VOYAGER JOBS FOR THEIR CLIENTS, BUT THE STARS ARE CONCENTRATING ON MAKING THE 7TH SEASON THE BEST SEASON.

[Eternal shot of the Delta Flyer]
Harry Kim Voice Over: Let's get out of here.
[Inside Delta Fkyer, Harry looks at alien on viewscreen]
Alien:We have casualties. Please help us!
[Explosion in the background on alien ship]
[Close up of Harry, the of viewscreen]
Alien: We're on a humanitarian mission delivering medical supplies
[Another explosion on the alien ship, alien is blasted forward]

ON NEXT WEEK'S VOYAGER, THE HOSTILE ANNARI KILL THE OFFICERS OF A KRAYLOR SHIP. HARRY KIM, PLAYED BY GARRET WANG, ASKS FOR AND IS GIVEN COMMAND TO BRING THE SURVIVORS TO SAFETY.

[Harry looking at now viewscreeen]
[Shot of viewscreen – new alien on it]
[Dead/unconscious alien on a table, explosion in the background]
[Internal shots of Kraylor ship. Harry walks through the corridor, approaching one of the Kraylor crew]
[Side shot of crewman]
[Harry holds side of ship(?) and bows his head]
[Two aliens, one turning to look at Harry]
[Harry walks towards the camera and another crewmember]
Harry: I gave you an order.
Cremember: What about the mission?
Harry: That's not your concern

THE MORAL OF THIS STORY IS: BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR.

[Seven of Nine using a wall console. She then suddenly turns and runs away from it, but gets caught in the ensuing explosion]
[Kraylor ship bridge(?) – Harry pushes himself out of his chair]

THE NIGHTINGALE EPISODE WAS HELMED BY RETURNING DIRECTOR LEVAR BURTON, WHO OF COURSE PLAYED GEORDIE LAFORGE ON STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION.

[Stock footage of 'Star Trek: Insurrection']

ON SET, THE VOYAGER CAST HAS A CASE OF FINAL-SEASONITIS

[Burton talking to Wang on the second tier of Engineering set – Voyager extras and streamers abound]

GARRET IS STILL DOING IMPRESSIONS OF HIS CO-STARS...

[Garret Wang talking to the camera]
Wang: Ok, who's this.
[Clears throat and mops forehead]
Wang: Ensign Kim…
[Wang cracks up]
[Stock footage of Seven of Nine and Harry working in Astrometrics]
Wang: I was gonna do Seven of Nine. She's like… She's always like (Seven voice): "Do you wish to copulate?" She always does this head thing, where she does like this:
[Wang demonstrates 'head thing']
Wang:Very, kinda (Seven voice): "I'm so… above all this".

THE CAST IS AS CLUELESS AS THE REST OF US ON WHAT THE PRODUCERS ARE PLANNING FOR THE NEXT STAR TREK SERIES.

[During filming – Janeway and Chakotay walk along Engineering's second teir]
[Jeri Ryan putting on lipstick – turns to the camera}
Ryan: Hi!

IF KATE MULGREW OWNED THE FRANCHISE, HERE'S WHAT SHE WOULD DO:

[In Voyager's Ready room – Janeway, Chakotay, Paris and Kim(?) in a red uniform]
Mulgrew (Voice over): Well, I would first say, let us take a break (unintelligible – a month before
another series first?)
[Mulgrew, talking to camera on bridge – note she is incorrectly named as Robert Ducan McNeill]
Interviewer: For how long?
Mulgrew: I'd say for five years, and get a real feel for the audience. I think there's some saturation in science fiction – I'm not targeting Star Trek but, well, huge fanbase for it. Have to get them excited and titillated again.
[External shot of Voyager]
Mulgrew: First I would give it a rest, and I would use those five years to really investigate the curiosities…
[End clip]
