The Sliders land on a world exactly like their home only time has progressed at a slower rate and Quinn has a chance to meet -- and play bodyguard -- to his younger self. -Fox

Alternate Earths

58. Diagnosis Earth

Arturo is diagnosed on this Earth as having a untreatable, incurable and ultimately fatal disease. He is told he has anywhere from a month to a year to live.

59. Van Meer's Earth

Time flows differently on this Earth; the calendar says 1996, but everything appears here as it did twelve years previously on Earth Prime. Alternate Quinn and his mother are younger and Quinn's alternate father has just died.

Arturo and Quinn state that this Earth seems to prove the theory of Herbert Van Meer, a Dutch astrophysicist, who theorized that if the Earth spun on its axis more quickly it would, over the course of a few centuries, build up a time lapse. That is what seems to have happened here.
