Voyagers! Miracles in December

Gorgeous video created by talented fan Margie, showcasing Bogg and Jeffrey's true friendship.

Voyagers Pilot episode: Point Dume

My friend KC, from Voyagers Guidebook's sister website, Tenafly Guy (Her new website is under construction.) took a recent trip to California and visited Point Dume, the beautiful rocky cliffs where Jeffrey poured his heart out to Bogg about his parents in the Pilot episode. They're gorgeous scenic shots, its no wonder Point Dume is constantly used in filming shows, movies, and music videos.

The Pilot wasn't the only episode that featured Point Dume's cliffside. Bogg had his fun sword fight against fellow pirates in the episode, "Old Hickory and the Pirate."

Always Annie Oakley

Actress Diane Civita (Carey) was married to Voyagers! creator James Parriott (Not sure if they're still together) and was always cast in guest parts for the TV shows he wrote for or produced, including Bionic woman, Incredible Hulk, and Voyagers.

In the 1977 Bionic Woman 2-parter episode called "Jaime's Shield" - written by James D. Parriott - Diane Civita has a major guest role as a police cadet. - she's described as "...A regular Annie Oakley" - a good 5 years before VOYAGERS! was created!

Cleo & Nefertiti

The costume designer for the Voyagers episode "Cleo and the Babe" was no doubt inspired by the beautiful blue sheers Anne Baxter wore as Queen Nefertiti in "The Ten Commandments" in 1956. Voyagers had 3 costume Supervisors — Jan Kemp, Norma Brown and Richard Hopper.

Voyagers crossing borders

I did one of my periodical Ebay checks for anything "new" and interesting for Voyagers and I came up with some Chinese, Thai, and Russian TV magazines from 1983 that feature an article about the show. I think it's wonderful how Voyagers managed to cross borders during its original run on TV. It's almost a feat for the pre-internet era. Other countries developed fan followings, but not until years after the show had ended and were finally broadcast to them.
