SummariesDuring a short stop on a very strange world, the Sliders unknowingly take on some extra baggage -- a stowaway living inside Maggie. When the creature makes an attempt to reproduce, it gives itself away and the others must destroy it without hurting their new friend. -Fox
The Sliders come upon a world in which young adults are used as guinea pigs in a mandatory organ-donor program. Meanwhile, Maggie's carrying an alien egg that's incubating inside her. -TV Guide
96. Species EarthThis swamp covered world is home to a very bizarre creature which likes to uses humans as hosts during its reproductive cycle. The Sliders are, fortunately, only on this world a short time, but one creature manages to attack Maggie and slide on to the next world...
97. Organ Donor EarthPeople from the age of 18 to 25 on this Earth must wear wrist implants containing their complete medical profiles. These implants allow specialized "D" Squads to go out and collect people as part of this world's manditory organ donator program, a program designed to keep those in power healthy as long as possible.
A medical researcher by the name of Dr. Natalie Sylvius accidently becomes a host for the creature from Species Earth during the Sliders stay. It's unclear what effect this newly introduced species will have on this world, but it's entirely possible this world may have to be renamed "Species II Earth" soon.
