episode 6x12 was created as an original idea of Sliders.PL team, and is
also based around the many conspiracy theories popular among fans, such as
the origin of Quinn and Colin or the fate of the Professor.
we decided that the fan-fic “Slide Effects” was a great
introduction to the soft reboot of the show, we knew there was something
that this fan-fic was missing. We’re talking about the lack of
solving the great cliffhanger from the last episode “The
Seer,” when Mallory spoke the final words, "What
do we do now?" Although our episode 6x01 “Slide
Effects” brought back the original four travelers and realized that
our protagonists have never really lost anyone from their group, we
absolutely wanted to finish the story of alternative Sliders, those who we
watched from the middle of the third season and throughout the fourth and
the fifth season, with a happy ending. In the first of the two final
episodes, we decided to resurrect all four missing Sliders (Quinn, Wade,
the Professor, and Colin) so that in the second episode there would be
time for the final confrontation of two groups of Sliders with their
fans believe that in the second season episode entitled
“Post-Traumatic Slide Syndrome,” our true Professor Arturo was
abandoned, and his double went along with Quinn, Wade, and Rembrandt. The
co-creator of the series, Tracy Tormé himself, confirmed this theory. We
use this solution in our sixth season. The Professor presented in this
episode is still alive, and the one who died in the episode of the third
series entitled “The Exodus: Part II,” was his double.
knew that in this episode, we had to get Quinn back. It is true, that Dr.
Geiger had already tried to separate Quinn from Mallory in the season five
episode “Eye of the Storm.” Unfortunately, whether on purpose
or not, he was not successful. We do not know. In our continuation, when
two outstanding scientists, Professor Arturo and Dr. Davis, joined their
skills, it turned out to be very effective. At the same time, they solved
the problem with Colin, who was not absorbed into Mallory's body but had
become unstuck. However, we decided that by bending space-time with the
devices of the Kromagg Dynasty, the Professor would be able to save not
only Quinn but also Colin. We applied this story solution to speed up the
return of all the missing Sliders.
who was kidnapped by the Kromaggs, we absolutely had to bring back to
life. The end of the season five episode entitled “Requiem” is
ambiguous, which left many fans to believe that Wade sacrificed her life
to save Remmy, Maggie, Diana, and Mallory. In turn, the "The Year
Five Journal" (CLICK!)
proves that the writers absolutely did not want to kill Wade in this
episode. At the end of the episode, there is a vision of Miss Wells in
Remmy's mind that suggests that she has somehow survived. In our sixth
season, we assumed that Wade was close to death after the events of
“Requiem.” She was severely wounded, but human rebels managed
to save her. More than a year had passed from that rescue to the reunion
with the Sliders, and so by that time, Miss Wells had completely
that’s very important in this episode, is that the world Quinn and
Maggie found in the season three episode “The Exodus, Part I,”
was not the homeworld of the alternate Quinn, Wade, Remmy, and Arturo.
This also means that in the season four episode “Genesis,” the
Sliders were also not in their homeworld, and Amanda, who was met by Quinn
in the episodes “The Exodus: Part I,” “Genesis,”
and “The Seer,” was not his biological mother. The story about
Quinn’s origin from Kromagg Prime of course turned out to be a hoax
of the Dynasty. Quinn thought he found his homeworld in the episode
“The Exodus: Part I,” because of a locket worn by his mother
and the squeaking of the gate in front of his house. Quinn was convinced
that if the gate was creaking, he must have found his homeworld, where it
always creaked. It turned out he was wrong.
also clarify the issue of the colors of the Golden Gate Bridge. In the
homeworlds of the original and alternative Sliders, this bridge is red.
Our original Sliders went to the world with the Azure Gate Bridge in the
second season. In contrast, we assumed that the alternative Sliders, whose
adventures we observed in the Kromagg simulations from the middle of the
third season to the end of season five, had a similar adventure in regards
to leaving the Professor behind, but in a world with a green Golden Gate
Bridge. In turn, the world that Quinn and Maggie slid to in “The
Exodus, Part I,” which was later invaded by the Kromaggs and where
Beckett had difficulties with breathing, was also very similar to ours.
One small exception was that the color of the bridge there was gold.
regards to Maggie Beckett, we wanted to provide a happy ending for this
character. We also wanted to be sure that she would no longer be traveling
with the alternate Quinn, Wade, Remmy, and Arturo, because we also wanted
to make a soft reboot for the alternate group of Sliders. The original
four could search for their home, without the companions who joined them
in subsequent seasons. In order to provide Maggie with this type of
ending, we had to make Beckett consciously give up on the journey and
settle down, and the best motivation for that is family. Since we assumed
that Wade was a better mate for Quinn than Maggie (for both original and
alternate Sliders), we decided that for Beckett, the greatest happiness
would be to get her back her late husband, Dr. Steven Jensen.
