Time Machines

The Omni - Time traveling device used on the science fiction adventure VOYAGERS/NBC/1982-83.

The Omni - Time Traveling Device - VOYAGERS

The Omni is a gold, hand-held device similar in size to a pocket watch. It was used by travelers knows as Voyagers when they patrolled the corridors of time.


"We travel through time to help history along, give it a push where it was needed. When the Omni is red it means history is wrong. Our job is to get everything back on track." -- Phineas Bogg


A normally functioning Omni glowed red when history was out of sync; and green if history was taking its proper course.

One day, an Omni belonging to a Voyager called Phineas Bogg (Jon-Erik Hexum) malfunctioned, causing him to crash-land into the bedroom of Jeffrey Jones (Meeno Peluce), a young boy living in New York City.

When Jeffrey's dog ate the Omni's instruction manual, Phineas (more brawn that brain) recruited Jeffrey, an historical whiz kid, to aid him on his assignments until he could get a new instruction manual.

As a result of the Omni's malfunction, their voyages forward into time could go no further than 1982, thus limiting the scope of their adventures to the past.

The renegade Voyager named Drake (Stephen Laska) carried a model 31650 Open-Time Calibrated Omni. All Voyager adventures were monitored by a computer complex called the History Surveillance Unit. The Omni bore the inscription "Time Waits for No Man."

TRIVIA NOTE: The movie Time Bandits (1981) followed the trail of six dwarves who whisk away an English schoolboy on series of adventures through time and space. See also "The WABAC Machine"
