SummariesThe gang lands on a world nearly deplete of natural resources and encounters a group of people near to discovering the secret of sliding -- but for evil purposes. Meanwhile, Rembrandt is kidnapped by a crazy fan. -Fox

53. Remmy's New Boots EarthOn this Earth, Rembrandt Brown picked up a new pair of boots which almost got the Sliders killed when they slid into a BART tunnel on Eco-Disaster Earth.
54. Eco-Disaster EarthThe natural resources of this world are almost gone. Oil supplies are low, forcing gasoline prices over $400 a gallon, which makes cars extremely rare. Animals, especially food animals, are also rare. This world's U.S. Congress recently put horses on the endangered species list. People are reduced to eating things like "Geomash," a disgusting gruel which comes in two flavors, green and yellow. Even paper seems to be rare, newspapers have been reduced to a single page.
San Francisco, which here is called San Angeles, is a neighborhood of the city of Los Angeles which covers most of California's coast.
Alternate Rembrandt Brown is famous on this world and is currently touring Europe. He never recorded the song "Tears in my 'Fro" here, but he did record "I'd Pawn My Gold Crown For You" which is a song 'our' Rembrandt never recorded.
A group of scientists on this Earth, led by Quinn's female alternate, Logan St. Clair, are close to perfecting a Sliding device of their own. Their intent is to use this device to steal natural resources from neighboring dimensions.
55. Reggae EarthHey, mon, the Sliders landed in a Los Angeles Reggae bar on this Earth.
- In this episode Logan St. Clair, Quinn's female alternate from Eco-Disaster Earth, switched the "geographic spectrum stabilizer" in the Sliders' timer with one of hers which has a 400 mile range. From now on, the Sliders may land in San Francisco, Los Angeles, or anywhere in between. This just happened to coincide with the moving of principal photography from British Columbia (which can pass for San Francisco) to Los Angeles which can pass for... Los Angeles.
- Logan St. Clair's last name is no-doubt an in-joke reference to St. Claire Entertainment, the company which (along with Universal Television) produces SLIDERS.
