  • Recently a number of news sites have reported that a copy of the script for upcoming voyager episode 'Shattered' has appeared online at Thinkey's Universe. Unfortunately for those in the spoiler game, the 'script' was in fact a hoax, in reality only a work of fanfiction based on the premise of the episode, according to a message posted on the website.
