Too bad there isn't, to my knowledge, a place to discuss ideas. I used to wonder how history "got wrong" on this series. I wondered if there was a rogue voyager going around disrupting time. My best idea is this: the Omni looks to be the state of the art in personal time travel technology. What would have been the old days technology? Probably a portal or a capsule device (like in "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure" that you stepped into. And perhaps in the early days of time travel, sometimes travelers were careless and introduced small errors. So, by the time the technology was refined down to the Omni, the Voyagers institute was founded to start sending properly-trained men and women to fix things. Somehow, somewhere, they obtained a record of proper, unaltered history. Otherwise, I can't imagine how else history could spontaneously "go wrong" and "need a push" to help it along!

- I have a theory. Meeno Peluce cried so much in every episode that the resulting flood of water ripped a hole in the space-time continuum, forcing Bogg to repair the damage on a weekly basis! --M.Neko 07:10, 31 October 2006 (UTC)
- I'm Not sure how the Voyagers! started but thats a good therory as they never state in the Show, but they do show Drake in the "The Trial of Phinius Bogg" and in the Last episode he turned rouge and started messing up history so I'm assumeing they have had this happen bebore such as quantum leap the the good and bad leapers. --Chad 05:45, 24 September 2007 (UTC)
- Why history changed in the first place was a somewhat annoying plot device they never really explained. Another problem the show had was it was dependent the Great Man theory of history and if you had seen James Burke's Connections (which had used the Great Moment theory) in 1979 things didn't always make sense. Finally the problem of what if the world had turned out better and you had to fix things never came up.--BruceGrubb (talk) 21:42, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
Omni = ?
I may be misremembering this but wasn't Omni short for Omnichron or somesuch?--18.104.22.168 20:38, 22 July 2007 (UTC)
I don't believe they really say at all. --Chad 05:45, 24 September 2007 (UTC)
I remember them calling it something like the Omnichron, as well. If you read Voyagers fan fiction (here, for example: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3816076/2/The_Crime_of_All_Time_TVC_Story_03) they also call it the Omnichron. DFS (talk) 22:09, 17 March 2009 (UTC)

The period attire was rather perfunctory sometimes, and the boy seems to have worn the red and white horizontally striped T-shirt in historical situations where it would have been strongly out of place... AnonMoos (talk) 08:29, 28 May 2009 (UTC)
