99. Foggins' EarthThe hills of this world are shrouded in a fog of sulferous fumes emitted by volcanoes. The people of this world are divided into two groups, those who can breathe the fumes and live in the hills (the Foggins) and those who live in the valleys away from the fog. Some of the valley-dwellers seem to be able to use a certain amount of magic and can foretell the future in a very limited way.
"Smarter" Quinn, the alternate Quinn we saw briefly in the SLIDERS Pilot when he slid to Earth Prime and gave our Quinn the last bit of formula he needed in order to perfect sliding, has been living here with the Foggins for several years. He claims that it was he who gave sliding technology to the Kromaggs (first seen in Invasion) and that they in return destroyed his home world. He begs our Quinn to kill him so that he can't cause any more damage.
- Early drafts of this episode were called "Raging Quinn."
