| Mako-clb chapter 20 . 11/1/2015
Okay, rather than review as I was reading, I decided to wait until the end. Why will probably become apparent. And, forgive me if I ramble a bit, it's fairly late as I'm writing this since I read the last 2/3 of the story in one sitting.
I've read a few of your other Voyagers! stories, and I really liked them, so I was really looking forward to this story when I started it. But, not long into the story, and I mean like almost right after she was introduced, I realized Kayla wasn't just an original character, but a Mary Sue. Even as a child, she was just too perfect. I thought at first she was designed to be with Jeff somehow, despite the age difference, but then you set things up to pair her with Bogg. I didn't see that coming when she was first introduced, I must admit.
I really like your writing style, and I liked some of the other elements you introduced into the Voyagers! world with this story, and those are the things that kept me reading even as Kayla annoyed me with her near perfection very time she was in a scene. Jeremy's introduction annoyed me even more, as I felt like he was added just for the sake of giving Kayla a friend and assistant, one that I felt was clearly based on a real person and not on what was needed for the story.
Mind you, I really do like the idea of Paradox and Pioneer. I think it adds a very interesting dimension to the Voyagers! world. And, I just love Bogg in a leadership role; it seems like a natural extension of the maturation process he began when Jeff entered his life.
Please don't think that I hate your stories. As I said, your writing style and other ideas were enough to get me to the end despite Kayla. My problem with her is that she's just too perfect, and perfection does not lend itself to character development or growth.

Wow, I read it all! What a ride. So much happened. I really liked how Phineas found Kayla to love and his family as well. And Jeff's future as the head of Pioneer. Nice job!

This chapter has everything! Humor, as in Phineas rolling his eyes and telling Jeff to remember the special knock because it was too long for him to remember. Also, extremely well written back to back hurt/comfort and high emotion scenes with Jeff and Phineas. First, Jeff's memories of his Dad, then his realizations about his relationship with Phineas and how much he owes him and how he'd never told him or thanked him. Then, putting Bogg there so Jeff could tell him how he felt. The build up was excellent and the scene masterfully done. An especially powerful way to have Jeff say "I love you" while calling him Phineas, instead of Bogg. It really made that statement stand out and gave it more impact.

I read this last summer sometime, but didn't know how to leave a review then. So, now that it's updated, I'm going to read it again. A great first chapter and wonderful idea about them running into a child who recognized the omni. A sweet moment when Jeff remembered his folks and Bogg comforted him, well written. I think Artie will be able to help Bogg field strip the omni, finally. Lots of action and an intriguing start. Makes me want to read more.

Excellent Story. Looking forward to its continuation in part 2. I am very much enjoying all your Voyagers 5 STAR stories.
There is however one Voyagers story that I like more than any other and sorry to say it was not one of yours, *Grins*
I still have more of your stories to read but this one "A Stich in Time" By TimeandTide is the one story I liked the best, so far. It kept me up all night cause I just couldn't stop till I finished it. *Tired Grins*
Ah well onto part 2 of this series.

YAY for Bogg! He did it! Injury & all. :) THat was so nice of Bogg to bring Kayla to Vinnie's wedding, & it was time for her to meet the folks, ya know.
Me no like Dwight & Lorna - they certainly are BAD BAD PEOPLE! But I have a feeling that we have not seen the last of them...lol OMG - Drake & the Titanic...ROFLOL...YAY FOR DEAD DRAKE! Paradox is SO going DOWN!
Mrs. Bogg, this was an AWESOME story! I LOVED IT :)

GET OUT! I was so on the edge of my chair with this one (could ya hear me screaming...lol)
You would so think that Bogg would listen to Jeff by now, when he says something's wrong...THEN IT WRONG!
John Henry cracks me up - swatting at imaginary mosquitos...lol He does make for a Good voyager and a good ally for Bogg.
OMG - Drake doing that to my poor Jeffy :( Just imagine if he succeeded with his plan :O WAIT...BOGG TOOK THE BOMBS AND DISAPPEARED...WHAT! OMG - OK..can I breathe yet!

HA HA...Omniotosis...ROFLMBOPIMP! CLASSIC! TOO FUNNY :P Jeff is getting to worked up over this one ~ there is so much that they need to plan to make NOT happen. Maybe Bogg should have given him a, well you know ::ahem::..DOH!
EW! Lorna and Drake are behind this scheme - I DON'T like this talk of getting back at Bogg and Pioneer :O It's getting so ANGSTY - LOVIN' IT!
| spencerthekat chapter 17 . 5/2/2008
Of course Drake would use THAT as a password! Only a few people would know that one! He's NOT as sneaky as he thinks he is...he is SO GOING DOWN!
AW! The Radio Flyer. Can't think of a better thing to know. :)
OMG the BRIDGE is missing? Now that's a RED LIGHT if I ever heard of one. Looking forward to reading onward!

What's Kayla got up her sleeve with the mysterious box? HOW did she get those?
YIPPEAH it's time for the 'YAHOOS" - WOOT WOOT! They certainly put together a GREAT group of people for the team! :O ;) They seems like they will do a superb job in taking down Paradox!
p.s. Jeremy was NEVER a geek ;) DOH!
| spencerthekat chapter 15 . 5/2/2008
HA HA the holding cells are like hotel rooms...this way Mr. Bogg, cell 125...ROFLOL! Granted this is a REAL cell at all! LOL!
YAY for Garth, Kane and Brendall~they made the 'Green Light choice' in not banishing Bogg to a unchartered island ~ and making him the head hancho of Pioneer! I always knew that Jeff had great things planned for him and this just adds to it ;) GREAT CHAPTER!
| spencerthekat chapter 14 . 5/2/2008
Great...just Great! They fix what Drake mess up and now he's getting punished for it! I sure hope that the tribunal sees that he was doing a goot thing! Jeff is so going to FREAK when he finds this one out!
| spencerthekat chapter 13 . 5/2/2008
AW! Just a fun dinner (it's all about food...lol) and catching up with the family! Bogg's family seems so nice!
O*M*G! The omni has a TIME REVERSAL code! O*M*G! WOW! He is surely going to get in trouble for this one~even if Drake was the one who cause History to go track! Were did they go? Can't wait to keep reading!
