SummariesWhen Quinn is strangely separated from the other sliders, trapped alone on an eerie astral plane, his only hope lies with Gillian, a young girl with psychic powers--and the only one who can see and hear him. -Fox
When a bizarre accident separates Quinn from the rest of the Sliders, the only hope for the remaining trio is to put their faith in a troubled young girl with a history of hearing voices--and an ability to communicate with spirits. -TV Guide
24. Monsoon EarthThe San Francisco of this Earth is subject to very violent rain storms. There must be some sort of civilization since the Sliders were able to find rain gear to wear before they slid off this world. Rembrandt later refered to this world as "Rain World."
25. Technophobe EarthFollowing the destruction of Hiroshima at the close of World War II, this world turned away from science and technology, fearing their uncontrolled spread as something evil. The Bureau of Anti-Technology, the local equivalent of the F.B.I., hunts down people who secretly use technology or advocate its use. Nonetheless, in the fifty years since the end of the war, technology and culture has slowly progressed on this world until it has reached what would seem to us to be the mid-1950s.
Quinn's alternate father, Michael Mallory, keeps a stash of technology in a basement workshop. Alternate Quinn died some time ago from Polio--this world has no Polio vaccine.
26. Nudist EarthOn this world, everyone from mail carriers to housewives shuns the use of clothing.
- An early draft of this episode was called "A World Beyond."
