Anna L. Kaplan at has put up a new interview with Kenneth Biller, Voyager's Executive Producer. Of course, Biller again talked about several of the seventh season's first episodes, including the upcoming telefilm 'Flesh and Blood':

"The Doctor has been, obviously, exploring his own humanity through the course of the series, and his struggle for holographic rights. We are going to bring him front and center and up against that very issue in the big two-hour movie, which is called 'Flesh and Blood.' It's about a holographic uprising that the Doctor gets involved in. The Doctor becomes very politicized by these holograms, and becomes a proponent of their cause.

"Janeway [Kate Mulgrew], in that same episode, is forced to deal with the repercussions of her life in the Delta Quadrant. She's been trading technology and giving away technology all along to keep her ship alive, and also in the hope that this technology would do good, that replicators could provide food for people, that a database could provide education for people. Now she is confronted with the fact that that technology can also be used to violent ends. In the last season she has to deal with the repercussions of that."

The article actually mentions 'Flesh and Blood' will be airing in the February sweeps, though every other article so far indicated it would be airing in November, so presumably it still will be. On the other hand, Biller reveals in the interview that the episode airing order has changed, as 'Drive' will now be the second episode to air instead of 'Imperfection'.
