Alternate Earths

77. Sherlock Holmes' Earth

When the stress of one hundred hour work weeks causes a person to have a mental breakdown on this Earth, they are refered to as "fractures." Important individuals who become fractures are sent to theme parks where their minds are temporarily wiped and they play out roles while their minds rest up. Arturo, with his "tramp" clothing and tales of alternate worlds, is mistaken for a fracture and is sent to a park where he plays out the part of Reginald Doyle, this Earth's equivalent of Sherlock Holmes.

Trevor, a young boy genius who is in the park as part of his annual playtime, steals the Sliders' timer for a while and is able to figure out it is a sliding device. He tells Quinn he may try to constuct his own such device. Quinn cautions him to be sure of his home coordinates before sliding.
