In the first episode of Quantum Leap, Ben Song, played by Raymond Lee, made an unauthorised jump

and ended up in 1985 as a would-be diamond thief. We still don't know why he jumped,

but we do know that Al's daughter, Janice Calavicci, had something to do with it.  

At the end of the hour, Herbert "Magic" Williams (Ernie Hudson) said that Janice wanted to join the new Quantum Leap project like her father did.

But the Department of Defense said no because they were worried about her emotional ties to Al

who was played by Dean Stockwell in the original series and died last year) and Sam (who was played by Scott Bakula and never came back home.

"The actress who plays Janice, Georgina Reilly, will be on the show a lot."
