I think another reason I never watched Quantum Leap is for its first few years, I was working nights. I had read a TV Guide Fall Preview description, and the premise didn't interest me too much, because it sounded sort of like The Time Tunnel without the fancy hardware and a smaller cast. Other time travel shows had failed to impress me too, because they always failed in the hardware department and focused on whatever past the characters were trapped in. TT often had a lot of stuff happening at Tic Toc Base with former Miss America Lee Meriweather.
So who's the woman in the Quantum Leap screenshot? I don't recognize her.
