McNeill on the Voyager FinaleBy Amy

One of the biggest rumours surrounding the final episodes of Voyager has just been de-bunked, thanks to Gregory L. Norris and Laura A. Van Vleet in a Cinescape report. And the news?
"It doesn't kill any of us off," Robert Duncan McNeill (Tom Paris) told the duo regarding Voyager's final episode in a recent interview. This neatly removeds all speculation that one of the main characters would get it in the teeth - Janeway, Chakotay and Seven of Nine being front runners to make a spectacular exit. It's worth noting, however, that this does not discount the possibility of Neelix departing the show in 'Destiny', the second last regular episode filmed.
"Without giving anything substantial away," the actor continues on the finale, "I can tell you it's got a lot of action in it, which Star Trek has become known for. It's got great space battles and action scenes. It's also got some wonderful emotional, charged scenes. Every character on the show gets real attention and their stories come full circle by the end of it, and it really brings together every character in a strong, emotional way. I'm very excited about the last episode. I think the fans are going to love it. For the show and this premise and what we set out to do, I think it really wraps it up in a wonderful way."
