Phineas Bogg: The first thing we have to do is find out how much time we have.
Jeffrey Jones: Are you crazy? We've got to stop this ship!
Phineas Bogg: Jeffrey, look...
Jeffrey Jones: Over a thousand people are gonna die. We can stop it. We can make it so it never happened.
Phineas Bogg: That's not what's wrong.
Jeffrey Jones: How can you say that?
Phineas 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.

Common plot device, but well-told
27 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In almost all time travel stories, there are three plot devices which are always used:

1) It is very difficult, or altogether impossible, for the time traveler(s) to return to their present time.

2) The SLIGHTEST CHANGE in history, even under the best intentions, would be disastrous. (Of course, this rule is violated constantly. Dr. Brown was hypocritical about it in "Back to the Future Part 2," changing future history when it benefited Marty...yet refusing to tell Marty about other errors that would occur in Part 3. An even worse example was "Quantum Leap," a show in which the entire premise was the alteration of history.)

3) There MUST be an episode about the Titanic, especially when based on Point #2. (Exception: Quantum Leap, which limited the plot to no earlier than 1953.) In both "Voyagers" and "Time Tunnel," the hero tries to warn of impending doom.

Like most episodes, this was an excellent story, made better by an intriguing role-reversal. (This requires the viewer to actually get into the plotting and characters, by the way.) Whereas Phineas Bogg is usually kind of stubborn and bull-headed, and Jeffrey Jones usually provides sage wisdom, this time it's the other way around. If Bogg ever learned one thing, it's that you NEVER mess with history, even if your intentions are GOOD. Bogg was right; Jeffrey was wrong.

Their mission was actually to recover the Mona Lisa painting, NOT to save lives.

This episode is very much like the classic Star Trek story, "The City on the Edge of Forever." Spock coldly informs Captain Kirk that, in order to restore history, "Edith Keeler MUST die." Bogg tells Jeffrey more or less the same thing, made all the more ominous by the fact that he had no way of knowing the consequences of SAVING the Titanic passengers.

I'm surprised nobody else picked up on that.
