SummariesLanding on a chaotic world of violence and mayhem, Quinn rescues a beautiful young woman in distress, permanently alienating El Sid, her vicious, pathological boyfriend. El Sid follows the Sliders to the next world and plots revenge on our heros--only everyone's a prisoner on this Earth as San Francisco is not what it seems. -Fox
When Quinn rescues a beautiful young woman in distress on a world ruled by violence, her homicidal boyfriend swearing vengeance for an imagined slight, follows the sliders through the vortex. -TV Guide
29. War Zone EarthA catastrophic war occurred on this world about ten years before the Sliders' arrival. It appears that all forms of government have been totally destroyed and armed gangs now fight perpetual turf wars in the rubble.
30. Prison EarthAlthough the San Francisco of this Earth appears to be a clean, well run city, it is actually part of the San Francisco National Penitentiary. The guards are known as custodians and look more like janitors than jailers. Each inmate is paired off with another and, if either one commits a crime, both are killed.
Just in case that wasn't enough, seismologists on this world have predicted that the entire San Francisco peninsula is going to drop off into the ocean in a massive earthquake due "any time now."
A commonly seen sign in this oppressive San Francisco is: "WE APPRECIATE THAT YOU CHOOSE NOT TO STAND IN THE SAME PLACE FOR LONG PERIODS." Lovely.
- While on Prison Earth, Arturo remarks that they've been to "twenty or thirty different earths." Since this is the thirtieth Earth seen on the show, it's likely we've seen almost every Earth the Sliders have visited.
