Tube Notes

MUST-SEE: "Star Trek: Voyager," 8-10 p.m., UPN (seen on KFVE). For the seven-year existence of UPN, the starship Voyager has been in a distant galaxy, trying to get home. Now comes the finale. Actually, things start (weakly) 10 years in the future. Voyager has returned home, but the cost — in lives and in sanity — was steep. Now Adm. Kathryn Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) is ready to break all the rules: She'll go back in time to offer an alternate plan for her younger self, Capt. Janeway. That's when a so-so drama begins turning into a terrific one. Voyager spent way too much time drifting aimlessly. Now it's come up with an excellent way to get home.

"Conspiracy Theory" (1997), 7 p.m., CBS. On the final day of the "sweeps" ratings period, CBS brings out some star power. Julia Roberts meets a cab driver (Mel Gibson) with lots of wild theories — one of which happens to be worth worrying about.

"SPIN CITY," 7 p.m., ABC. There are a lot of plot lines juggled in this hour-long season finale. And Charlie and Caitlin (Charlie Sheen and Heather Locklear) edge toward romance.

"Felicity," 7 p.m., WB (seen on KFVE). As summer nears, Felicity is in her usual dither. She may be losing Ben for a while and Noel forever.

"Boot Camp," 8 p.m., Fox. Series ends with only a slight variation on "Survivor": To win $500,000, the finalists get points for physical competition and the votes of colleagues.

"The Drew Carey Show," 8 p.m., ABC. The hourlong season finale finds Drew in a psychiatric ward.
