Default Handlink/PQL Technology Shots

Over the past few weeks I've been making screen captures of close-ups of the handlink (different versions) and Al's control pod seen in his car in "Genesis." I think I've collected all the best shots by this point, so I decided to post them here if anyone happens to need a frame of reference:

"Genesis"



"Pool Hall Blues"

"The Leap Back" (rear shot)



Handlink Console

"Lee Harvey Oswald"

"Killin' Time"

"Liberation"

It had never occurred to me to look, but I see a 9V battery in the handlink in the last picture.

Great shots, thanks, Chris!

Edit: Upon closer examination, Picture 6 reveals that it is a Duracell.

WOW I had never noticed that!! If Project Quantum Leap trusts Duracell to find Sam decades in the past, than that's the brand I trust. LOL

Whoa! I didn't even notice the battery until you mentioned that!

EDIT: Here's a couple of more shots as the handlink went through transition in "Camikazi Kid":

I wonder if "115" on the first picture is the speed Al was going in his car...

I swear I'll always buy Duracell!

And here's some clearer versions of the ones on the Imaging Chamber page:

"Good Morning, Peoria"


"The Leap Back"

It wouldn't surprise me one bit. US 380 has a very long (12+ mile) straight and flat stretch, just north of White Sands/Stallians Gate.

I didn't reach 115 on that stretch, though.

I'm glad someone else noticed the 9V battery in that episode. Well, obviously you can see it clear as day in the screenshot, though. =P

With the advent of Quantum Leap appearing in High Definition on Amazon Instant Video, iTunes, etc., we now can take higher resolution shots...

Feldon30,

Thanks! I knew eventually we'd have an opportunity to get some real HD shots!

So glad to see you back here, and it's been a joy to watch Quantum Leap in HD with all the music intact. Now to hope they do a Blu-ray release.

Thanks! Yes, I have a few ideas for upcoming threads. I know the boards have dried up a little lately. But it's funny how concerned we all used to be about Universal removing the music from the DVD sets and just a few years later all of those issues are resolved!

I was alerted to a unique camera angle on the Handlink in Trilogy Pt 2...
