I read this a while back and loved it and somehow forgot to review. Well, better late than never. This is an amazing crossover! Very much in character to both series.
Thanks so much for the review/add on my story! I'm so glad you liked it. I love the series (finished watching every episode last year) but I was a little nervous writing for it. I'm more comfortable these days with my Time Tunnel series, it seems. (:
Oh, and I was lurking on your blog as I saw your post about Fugitive/lonely man tv series. That's my absolute favorite subgenre of drama tv series so I couldn't resist dropping a few suggestions, if you don't mind. ;) You might be interested in:
"Nowhere Man" - Very moody and unforgettable mystery series about a man who steps into another room and comes out to find his entire life has been erased, and the only proof he has that he ever existed is a photograph in his pocket. The series follows him as he travels from town to town helping people, trying to piece together the mystery of why he was erased and who caused it, and him running from a group of men who will do anything to regain his photograph. It has an amazing theme/intro, too.
"Then Came Bronson" - he's on the run mostly from
himself instead of anyone else but it definitely has the feel of this genre. (the series "Route 66" is similiar but in a different vein).
"The Immortal" (1970) - Personal favorite of mine, it's a sci-fi about Ben Richards, a hunted man with a rare blood that makes him invincible to diseases or aging. He's on the run from a wealthy and dying man who wants a transfusion to save his life, but since a transfusion only lasts for a while he plans to cage Ben and use him as his personal blood bank. It's a lot less creepy than it sounds and it's beautifully haunting. The theme music alone is worth a listen (it's on YouTube) since it has that haunting sound of The Incredible Hulk theme.
"The Invaders" - Very sci-fi and made by QM productions who did The Fugitive so it's quite similiar in many ways. It's about a man who witnesses the landing of a spacecraft and finds himself declared insane and on the run, becoming the only hope to save humanity from the aliens.

Good story. Very nicely done.

Jeffrey is a brave kid, but he was exactly what David needed.

Good male bonding chapter. Phineas and David are the last two people you'd expect to become friends under normal circumstances. Alas, neither of them would recognize "normal" if it bit them in the leg.

You take the M out of the masses ... and that's what you're left with: one of the best definitions of mob psychology I've ever seen.
| Susan M. M 12/16/10 . chapter 6
One of my favorite historical heroines and an ugly incident in American history that is left out of most U. S. history books - a powerful combination. (And I like that you put in the detail about Kitty being surprised by the existance of male doctors; I remember that from reading Dr. Blackwell's biography. Nice use of historical detail.)

Very nice tie-in between two of Meeno Peluce's roles! (Hmm, have you ever crossed Voyagers! with Best of the West, where he was the marshal's son?)

Given how the Klan feels about black, brown, and yellow, it follows logically that they wouldn't care for green. But "a slim Jim chance'? Shame on Jeffrey for such a pun!

Oh... quite an intriguing tale...

What a beautiful passage. Bogg going back to marry Siofra and to be with her through her final days. How loving and beautiful. And the aftermath, his return to VHQ and sharing his grief with his friends. This was a touching chapter and a wonderful ending to a fabuluous story. BRAVA!

I'll have to say, I've never had a doctor begin a procedure by saying "May the force be with you." ROFLOL!
Sector-5 somehow sounds vaguely familiar. Oh, I know...reminds me of Area-51. You came up with a heap of great medical references in this chapter. I cannot get over Bobby and his Aussie terms. Love the "Crikey!" when he watched them electrocute David. Great chapter!

Oh my how these poignant scenes are getting the best of me. You nailed this chapter. The one on one scene between Bogg and David was absolutely wonderful. :: chokes back tears ::

A time-imaging chamber. Woohoo! More technology!
Bobby, way to go mate, you tell 'em 'bout ol' Bogg. Love the line about the cafeteria and the women's gym.
What a surprise, David Banner as a Voyager! I didn't see this one coming at all.

A fantastic description of the infirmary. The sights, smells and the sheer chaos is reminiscent of a true disaster situation.
Hey, they've even got Jeffrey triaging patients. Way to go there Jeff! And Bogg! as Florence Nightingale, oh my, he's caring for Lucy, much like he did for his own
Yay! Our good Aussie mate Bobby Peters is back! Tie me kangaroo down, sport!
Ok, on to more serious matters. While I rarely if ever take issue with the writing of a good author, there's one particular sentence in this chapter that kinda stuck me as being, well, odd. So at this point, being the romantic sort of guy that I am, I want to make a rather small suggestion. :)
In the line: "A single tear dripped from Elizabeth's eye as she read the note at sunrise. She crumpled it up and poised herself." Based on the obvious feelings she has for David in this story and the fact she would have probably married him if he had stuck around, I can't believe she would even think of 'crumpling' up the letter he wrote to her.
Maybe it would be more romantic if you said something like this. "A single tear dripped from Elizabeth's eye as she read the note at sunrise. As she saw the image of his handsome face in the depths of her mind, she smiled and slowly folded his letter to her. After raising it to her nose for a moment, as if to partake of its sweet scent, she paused for a moment before slipping it next to her bosom."
Just a suggestion... This was one great chapter!
