Alternate Earths

83. Pulsar Earth

The Cold War never ended on this Earth; as a matter of fact, it seems to be heating up. A magazine cover seen asks: "Russia vs. USA: The Final Round?" and the military officers we see suspect almost everyone of being a spy. This would be bad enough, but this Earth has a bigger problem: a cluster of pulsars is due to irradiate the planet killing all plant and animal life within the next twenty-four hours.

A Doctor Steven Jensen has invented sliding technology on this world, including the capability of storing the coordinates of previously visited worlds. He had not been able to get the technology to the point where humans could slide successfully until our Sliders arrived and gave him a hand. In exchange, he gave the Sliders the technology to store the coordinates of worlds they visit in the future.

This is Maggie Beckett's home world, her Earth Prime. It was also the world on which Arturo died.

84. Vorpal Bunny Earth

Everything is huge on this Earth: grass grows to waist height and the one human we see seems at least a hundred feet tall. The rabbit we see (complete with razor sharp teeth) is as large as a horse.

Only Quinn and Maggie slide to this Earth, after a 30 minute stay they returned to Pulsar Earth.

85. Maggie's Double Earth

Quinn and Maggie slide to this Earth on another scouting mission from Pulsar Earth. Here, Maggie meets an alternate version of herself who is also an Intelligence Officer with the rank of Captain. It's unknown if this Earth is also having a pulsar crisis.

1. Earth Prime

Quinn and Maggie make a quick slide back to Earth Prime, the Sliders home world first seen in the SLIDERS Pilot. After an all-too-brief reunion with his his mother, Quinn has to slide back to Pulsar Earth with Maggie to save her life -- something in Earth Prime's atmosphere prevents Maggie from being able to breathe.
