SummariesArriving on a world where the male population has been rendered impotent by a virus, the male sliders find themselves elevated to the status of "love gods" by a society of women eager to repopulate the planet. -Fox
In a world where germ warfare has exterminated most of the male population, Quinn, Rembrandt and Arturo discover that they've been pegged as runaway "breeders," and every nation of the world wants to capture them. -TV Guide
23. X Chromosome EarthDuring a conflict in this world's Middle East, the Iraqis released some kind of viral agent which attacked the Y chromosome and caused the death of most of the male population. Australia, with less than 2,000 surviving men, was one of the countries least affected by this weapon. Now, years later, the industrial countries of the world are in a race to repopulate the planet.
Although this might seem an attractive world for a male slider to visit, be warned that all men are kept in what amounts to sexual slave labor camps. Any man who escapes from these camps will be shot on sight if he is believed to be trying to defect to another country.
- Don't confuse X Chromosome Earth with the Women's Earth seen in the episode The Weaker Sex. On Women's Earth, the women have run society for centuries. On X Chromosome Earth, women run society because most of the men were recently killed off by a virus.
