The official site has posted what appears to be a brief interview with Jeri Ryan (Seven), in which she talks about upcoming movie 'Dracula 2000', Voyager in general and her character, revealing that Seven is going to become something of a tragic figure – and will start trying to re-capture some of what she felt in Unimatrix Zero.
She was asked if the Voyager crew will finally get home by the end of the series. "I don't know, they won't tell me how the season is ending either, so I don't know if we're getting back," she replied. "I assume that we'll get back—that's my prediction—but that's with no inside information."To read the full article, please follow the link.
Her character will continue to evolve as the final season progresses, and we can expect to see Seven "do some kind of experiments with her humanity and her sexuality, and trying to re-experience the emotions that she felt for the first time in Unimatrix Zero at the beginning of the season," she said.
"And I think that Seven is going to be becoming more of a tragic figure as we end the series, which I think is an interesting choice." When pressed for more detail on what "tragic" means, she responded with a big laugh, "Nope! That's all you get!"
Secondly, Totally Kate has posted a transcript of a Kate Mulgrew (Janeway) interview which appears in the February 2001 edition of SciFi Magazine, where the actress talks about the Borg, life after Voyager and on the set and her character.
There are three things that Mulgrew would like to see addressed from Janeway's perspective before the series concludes. "I think in these last 10 episodes, it would be wonderful—not to put too fine a point on it—to fully resolve this relationship between Chakotay and Janeway, which is an intimate relationship without the sexual ramifications. And I think it is very important that the captain say goodbye to each of her senior officers, in her own way. And by that I mean there should be introspective scenes, scenes that are clearly about character and not about plot. I think that that's the way to comfort not only us, but the audience, who now is going to be saying goodbye to a family."To read the full transcript, drop by Totally Kate.
Tim Russ (Tuvok) also recently spoke to Star Trek: the Magazine, looking at his quest appearances on Deep Space Nine, learning to play a Vulcan, his level of creative input and how he thinks the show should end. A transcript of the article can be found here at Voyager's Delights.
And finally, there is an interview with William Shatner (Kirk) on 'Groom Lake' available for download in Windows Media player format from Sciencefiction.com.Find more episode info in the Episode Guide.
