Alternate Earths

20. Lottery Earth

Society on this world keeps the population down to a mere 500 million through a variety of means including birth control drugs in cola and a lottery system which usually proves fatal to the winners. The president of this world's United States is Jocelyn Elders.

The Sliders are joined by two others from this world: Ryan and a dog named Henry.

21. Cliffhanger Earth

At the end of the episode Luck of the Draw, Quinn was shot in the back by the Lottery Police while escaping Lottery Earth.

In Into the Mystic, the Sliders spent their three days on this world taking care of Quinn; Ryan helped by digging the bullet out of Quinn's shoulder. Ryan, and presumably Henry the dog, stayed behind on this world.
