For nearly eight months between 2009 and 2010, I worked with two great fans on a Top Secret Voyagers! project. We have created for your reading pleasure –  a vivid, comprehensive Episode Guide of quirky, yet elegant design. It has 25 pages that includes pictures, trivia bits, full summaries and bios for Jon-Erik Hexum and Meeno Peluce, along with whatever we could find on 3 members of the cast from "The trial of Phineas Bogg." 

It is a labor of love for the series and all the fans that exist and continue to find this show in numbers like never before. It is free – and not for re-sale. It is available to download in a PDF format due to its size. All we ask is that you enjoy it and continue to keep this TV show close to your heart!
