Voyagers Are Time Lords
1 October 2008 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Voyager From The Unknown is a film made from the short lived, but acclaimed Voyager television series. Now that's a series that I'm surprised Nickelodeon or the Disney Channel hasn't picked up to do a 21st century version of.

It's hard to believe seeing Jon-Erik Hexum that in two years he'd be dead, victim of a senseless and stupid accidental shooting. As Phineas Bogg, voyager into time and space and setting history right, he seems so vibrant.

One thing I liked about this film is that while the bridging narrative is somewhat clumsy, it does give an indication of who the voyagers are and what they do. Maybe another word for them is Time Lords and is it possible their planet is named Gallifrey?

More than that, has the TARDIS been reduced to the size of an old watch. Just press the button and you're off. Well computers were once the size of buildings so anything is possible.

A lot of this film is taken from the episode involving Hexum and his young companion Meeno Peluce on the doomed Titanic where they meet another Voyager(Time Lord) in the person of shapely Tracy Brookes Swope. I did like the banter between Hexum and her.

I do hope the Voyager show is revived.
