The sliders land on a new world and are trapped in a cave, menaced by a man-eating allosaurus that has survived since the prehistoric age. Quinn must leave the safety of the group to go in search of the timer, which was lost somewhere outside. -Fox

Alternate Earths

33. Truth Tellers Earth

The people of this world are required by law to wear devices around their necks which administer electric shocks whenever they tell a lie. The bigger the lie, the bigger the shock; a huge lie can actually cause you to be electrocuted.

Visitors to this Earth are encouraged to bring along a pair of wirecutters; although they should keep in mind that removing a truth collar is illegal and is punishable by death.

34. Dinosaur Earth

Dinosaurs never went extinct on this Earth although they are now all endangered species. Dinosaurs such as allosaurus and packs of velocirators wander through the San Francisco National Forest. Holographic projections of forest rangers, working out of the San Jose Ranger Station, police the forest looking for poachers.

35. Paleontology Earth

Well preserved, if unusually fragile, dinosaur fossils have been found in this Earth's San Francisco.
