Qie at Voyager's Delights has put up two more interviews with Voyager actors, both of which were conducted by Anna L. Kaplan and first appeared in the April 2000 issue of Cinefantastique. In the first interview, Robert Duncan McNeill (Tom Paris) talks about directing, Paris' relationship with Torres, and the bridge set fire:

Tom Paris also got to play in the Captain Proton holodeck program on and off all year, which he enjoyed, despite the fact that during the filming of "Bride of Chaotica" the VOYAGER bridge set caught on fire. McNeill remembered, "We've been here five years, and there's some dust that has collected on top of these sets, on the ceilings. There are lights that hang up high and one of the light bulbs popped."

He laughed, "I guess the spark smoldered down in the dust, and caught fire on the ceiling of the bridge, right during a photo shoot with Rick Berman on the bridge. I don't know what the connection is, but I am sure there is some meaning behind it. No one was hurt, but we had a hungry crew, and our lunch was on that stage."
