Calendars! (Better late than never is all I can say.)

I have to apologize to the fans and KC. I can't believe I didn't post this on time. I'm embarrassed. (Face-palm) I've been very distracted with a big out-of-state move and re-adjusting to a new start on life in the last 2 1/2 months. So my updates have been erratic and infrequent as well as my thoughts and daily activities.

 I'd start all these little projects or green-light ideas and stories in my head, even on paper, or computer docs, then suddenly forget right in the middle and move on to something else. I've never been like that before. It almost scares me. I'm still young, but no longer the spring chicken I was (sort of) when I'd started all my major fan-work 12 years ago.

And then again, I've never been the most organized person. I'm still learning.

For the last 5 years Voyagers Guidebook's sister website, Tenafly Guy, has created beautiful Jon-Erik Hexum calendars for the fans to print out.

The year 2017 is no exception and it is my favorite of them all! Take a look for yourself, and you can also contact her to get the link to order a printed copy from Walgreens, and redesign it if you want to.

You can even save the calendar images for next year if you wanted.

*And now I remember why I'd forgotten to post. I'd been having trouble saving images off of Tenafly Guy's website with my browsers. I just now combated that problem by saving the images through Safari - and clicking "save image to downloads." *

If you happen to browse KC's website and notice missing pages or dead links, have no fear. She states on the site that she's in the middle of moving to a new web host provider. With all the wonderful goodies she has to transfer, it will take her time. Since I'd started this post in January, she's gotten even more excellent pages back up!

But you can still visit her original website at http://www.tenaflyguy.com  As she moves her pages she puts a disclaimer on them. There's a ton of amazing images to see and things to read on her Tenaflyguy Facebook Group page.

Here's a gorgeous sample for February!

Omni Rings & Replicas!

Replica Props is at it again, this time they're offering "Omni Parts" sold at separate cost for Voyagers! enthusiasts to build their own. It's pretty cool, but also pretty expensive when you put it all together. You get your choice of globe options too. The designs are currently listed in "Beta Testing" so if you were hoping to purchase, it's best to contact the sellers first.

I also like that they sell Voyager Rings. Perhaps they give those out at Graduation from Voyager School? If they did, then Bogg must've lost his. Of course!

Voyagers Replica Props at Shapeway

Here's a digital preview of the size 9 ring for sale. They are 3-D printed and polished.

Now check out the schematics and an actual print for a 3D omni design on a website called Thingiverse. The whole concept of a 3D printer still boggles my mind when it really shouldn't. Get it? Boggles? 

It's a very cool concept for our time. It seems like you can create anything!

Check out the link and join for more instructions and information on how to print it. The artist also creates tons of other awesome replica designs, and symbols from sci-fi, Television, movies, and comic books.

New NBC Voyagers! inspired Time Travel series!

Get ready for a brand new action-adventure series, "Timeless" starting on October 3rd, 2016 on the NBC Network. Fans must read this interview article from KsiteTV.

In the linked article, the Producer/Creator Eric Kripke discusses Voyagers! and how his fan love for the series inspired him to make "Timeless." Based off NBC's description and the trailer, the similarities are immediately evident for Voyagers fans!

Time Agents chasing a rogue Time Traveler throughout history is exactly what Voyagers Phineas Bogg and Jeffrey Jones are tasked to do in the mid-season episode, "Trial of Phineas Bogg." Read more about Voyager Drake and his dastardly deeds on my About Voyagers page.

Bogg & Jeff must hunt down Voyager Drake, whose goal is to ruin history. Drake makes an interesting 2nd appearance in the final episode of Voyagers!- Jack's Back. Bogg and Jeff are embroiled in a Sherlock Holmes-esque mystery involving Jack the Ripper, Sherlock Holmes writer, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and the adventurous Journalist, Nellie Bly.

I look forward to diving into "Timeless" and watching it play out. The creators have a string of hit shows behind them, so it's a firm chance this series will be successful. "Timeless" has the 10:00pm slot on Monday nights to start.

"Timeless" can't be considered family friendly as the 8:00pm Voyagers! series was back in 1982. But real history is not necessarily pretty. To partially quote Voyager Bogg – "I know it's hard to understand, but sometimes history's cruel. There's, there's wars, disasters, injustices, but some of those things, no matter how much you want them not to happen, are supposed to happen."

I always said that it's possible a Voyager may have to make sure a tragedy DOES occur, rather than prevent one. Otherwise, they need to stand by and not interfere. I want to see how the characters in "Timeless" deal with those repercussions when their humanity kicks in, and they are torn about saving others. Those will make for some dramatic episodes.

Timeless Trailer

Info on "Timeless" from NBC:

From Eric Kripke (“Revolution,” “Supernatural”), Shawn Ryan (“The Shield”) and the producers of
“The Blacklist” comes this thrilling action-adventure series in which a mysterious criminal steals a secret state-of-the-art time machine, intent on destroying America as we know it by changing the past. Our only hope is an unexpected team: a scientist, soldier and history professor who must use the machine’s prototype to travel back in time to critical events.

While they must make every effort not to affect the past themselves, they must also stay one step ahead of this dangerous fugitive. Can this handpicked team uncover the mystery behind it all and end his destruction before it’s too late?

The cast includes Abigail Spencer, Matt Lanter, Malcolm Barrett, Goran Visnjic, Paterson Joseph, Sakina Jaffrey and Claudia Doumit.

Eric Kripke and Shawn Ryan serves as writers and executive producers. John Davis, John Fox, Marney Hochman and director Neil Marshall also executive produce. “Timeless” is produced by Davis Entertainment, Kripke Enterprises and MiddKid Productions in association with Sony PicturesTelevision.
