SummariesAfter cornering Rickman on a world inhabited by bizarre hybrids, the Sliders finally have a chance to get home -- until they encounter a scientist who's trying to create a race of slaves from the DNA of humans. -TV Guide
103. The Earth of Dr. MoreauThe Sliders landed on a semi-tropical island on this Earth; an earthquake might has caused potions of this world's California to sink or perhaps they just landed on one of the islands off the California coast. A population of animal/human hybrids of varying levels of intelligence live on this island. These hybrids were created by a Doctor Vargas who lives in a secured compound on this island.
Colonel Rickman was killed on this world when he lept off a cliff toward a vortex which closed just before he entered it. Don't you hate it when that happens?
104. Futuristic EarthQuinn and Maggie, after being seperated from Wade and Remmie, slide to this world which is much farther along technologically than our own Earth. Huge machines are seen passing slowly overhead, perhaps using some sort of anti-gravity device--no wings are visible.
Despite Quinn's "We've slid into the future!" comment, this probably is not the future. He and Maggie just happened to slide to a world which has progressed technologically at a much faster rate than our own.
- This was Sabrina Lloyd's last appearance on show as a regular member of the cast. This episode is also the last once produced for the Fox Network.
- Rembrandt and Wade used Rickman's timer in order to slide back to, we assume, their own home world of Earth Prime. We know that Rembrandt will be returning for season four, as will Quinn and Maggie, but we have yet to see how the two groups will get back together.
- If you'd like to read the novel this is episode was based on, pick up a copy of H. G. Wells' "The Island of Dr. Moreau."
