SummariesThe Sliders land on a world where human beings have seemingly been replaced by machines, robots created by a master manipulator. -Fox
In a world ruled by automatons who've made humans obsolete, Quinn and Rembrandt become the guinea pigs in a ghastly experiment: the transplantation of their brains into robotic hosts. -TV Guide
74. Androids' EarthA decade or so ago, James Aldohn formed Aldohn Robotic Technologies, a company which produced androids which looked and acted just like humans. Having androids do all the menial tasks of the world left people free to enjoy everyday living without the need to ever work again.
Unfortunately, some early models of the androids had a problem when their emotions conflicted with their logic. The androids were recalled to be fixed or destroyed back at the factory. The androids weren't too keen on being destroyed and turned on their human masters instead.
Only one human, James Aldohn, survived.
- Early drafts of this episode were called "I, Robot."
