According to Christopher Allan Smith at the Mothership, the new edition of Entertainment Weekly contains a new interview with Star Trek Executive Producer Rick Berman, who again spoke on the matter of Voyager getting home: "The question will be: 'What is the fate of VOYAGER?' I'm not telling, but the season is going to end in an unexpected way."

Slightly more original is an interview with Brannon Braga in the new edition of the British Cult Times magazine. In a short excerpt available on the magazine's site, Braga talks about the storyline of 'Unimatrix Zero' (which still has to air in the UK), and about how the recent foot injury of Jeri Ryan (Seven of Nine) hindered filming.

"She broke her foot," said Braga. "This was bad timing, because she's has a lot to do in this episode. She has to hobble around. She won't be able to walk as much." Due to the injury, the script for the episode had to be modified a little bit. "There are some scenes where we wanted her walking through the forest, and we're not going to be able to do as many of those, because she can't walk. When the camera rolls, she'll take the crutch off. I've told her that if she complains, I'll break the other foot," joked Braga, "so she'll be a trooper throughout shooting..."

The full interview can be read by buying Cult Times issue #61, and a bit more from this excerpt can be found here. Thanks go out to Gustavo Leao for this!
