Watch the Voyagers soar through wormholes!
"Far out in the cosmos there exists a planet known as Voyager, where the mystery of travel into space and through time has been solved. It is inhabited by a race who call themselves Voyagers. Their purpose is to keep constant surveillance on history. These people have a time machine device, the Omni, which will take them into the past, present or future. As each Voyager graduates he is given an omni and a guidebook. One such graduate Phineas Bogg, who was assigned as a field worker to operate in certain time zones."
This quote at first didn't make sense to me since Phineas Bogg explains in the Pilot episode –"We're the people that are plucked out of time and trained to travel through the ages..."
In latter episodes of the series, it's revealed that Phineas Bogg was once a pirate, not a native of Planet Voyager. He says so himself in "Old hickory and the pirate." And it's obvious by his outfit.
On Planet Voyager a race of people have discovered the secrets of Time and space manipulation. These Voyagers appointed themselves, or were appointed as authorities over Earth's history. Fans of "Doctor Who" may be reminded of the Time Lords. All of this is narrated, we never actually see them. However, there are the judges in the "Trial of Phineas Bogg"
