UPN just updated its web site with the following official episode synopsis for 'The Haunting Of Deck Twelve', the penultimate episode of this season:

An electromagnetic life form takes possession of the ship, shutting down all life support systems, while trying to communicate to Janeway its need to return to the nebula from which it came. Area by area is cordoned off by an invisible force field, and injected with poisonous gas, while the captain sets up an emergency command post in the Engineering Room.

Unfortunately UPN didn't post any photos to go along with the synopsis, but these will probably go up in a few days. 'The Haunting Of Deck Twelve' will air on the 17th of May.

In addition, Michelle Erica Green at AnotherUniverse posted a new edition of her Hailing Frequencies column, also including the following spoilers for the Voyager season finale:

UPN's latest press release confirms that Susanna Thompson, who played the Borg queen in "Dark Frontier" and has since starred on Once and Again, reprises her role as the villainous leader of the hive in "Unimatrix Zero." In this VR fable of sorts, an enclave of Borg drones devise a dreamscape that gives them a world unfettered by their technological, mass-mind utilitarian society. Individual Borg enter this matrix during their regeneration cycles. When Janeway learns of the development, she identifies it as a possible means to foster Borg insurrection, and works with Seven of Nine to plant a virus in the program.

But according to spoilers, Seven of Nine gets distracted - first by an attractive male Borg she encounters in the dreamscape, then by the discovery that she may be able to rescue her father. Chaos ensues, including the assimilation of Janeway, Torres, and Tuvok, plus the destruction of the Delta Flyer and Chakotay doing something actor Robert Beltran was not at all happy about (according to convention statements by Tim Russ, Robert Duncan McNeill, and Beltran himself).

Finally, UPN posted the following promo image for 'Life Line', next week's new Voyager episode:
