Alternate Earths

60. Cajun Earth

On this Earth, Napolean never met his Waterloo. We never actually see this Earth but, based on the Sliders' descriptions, it's always Mardi Gras here. The Sliders refer to it as Cajun World.

61. Dream Masters' Earth

The population of this Earth live in fear of a small population of "Dream Masters" who are able to enter and control a person's dreams or, in some cases, are able to literally "think" their victims to death.

In actuality, the Dream Masters' powers derive more from a knowledge of chemistry and human physiology than from mysticism. The Dream Masters introduce powerful chemicals into their victim's bloodstream via a pentagram tattoo they have on the palms of their right hands. Some psychic powers do seem to play a role however since Dream Masters are able to enter a victim's R.E.M. (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep and attack them at that time.

A word of warning: when visiting this Earth, be very careful who you shake hands with.
