Badly butchered version of the TV show Voyagers!, Voyager from the Unknown belongs on Mystery Science Theater. MCA added in goofy sound effects, edited dialogue out and worse of all, had Meeno Peluce come back and reloop dialogue when his voice had already started to change. Jeffery now comes from 1984, not 1982. The sound the OMNI makes is different as his the sound of the Voyagers landing or disappearing. Oh yeah, the cosmos they pass through is missing too. As is the rousing musical score that accompanied the TV series. AVOID this trash and watch the TV series, "Voyagers!"
