Sliders were watching the air battle beginning in the skies over Los
Angeles through monitors at The Sliding Research Center. More than a dozen
Manta ships were fighting against U.S. military aircraft, but everything
changed when two large Zercurvian ships appeared, and easily destroyed
both human and Kromagg forces. The Professor said that under such
circumstances, the anti-Kromagg virus was not enough to declare victory.
They had to find a way to defeat the Zercurvians as well. Unfortunately,
Arturo suddenly felt unwell and moved to a secluded place to rest.
Meanwhile, Maggie, Colin, Mallory, and Diana led Quinn, Wade, and
Rembrandt to the Center’s research team. It was a team that
consisted of the local doubles of Conrad Bennish, Jr., Dr. Steven Jensen,
and Professor Maximillian Arturo. The latter man was speechless when he
saw the Sliders. He asked if it was possible that he had finally found his
companions. He explained that a few years ago he was mistakenly abandoned
in the world with the Azure Gate Bridge. Quinn unexpectedly told Wade and
Remmy that the travelers had probably found a long-abandoned friend.

explained to Wells and Brown that a few months ago, he had learned through
the Kromagg simulation, that they had been accompanied for several years
by the Professor's double Arturo2, and not by their actual friend. Their
own Arturo had been abandoned in the world with the Azure Gate Bridge,
which is information that Quinn intentionally withheld from Wade and
Rembrandt. At this moment, Arturo2 returned to the room, feeling the
symptoms of his terminal illness again. Once Professor1 saw him, he
angrily attacked his double. He lost his friends for many years, because
of this man’s actions. Remmy separated the two men just in time.
Then Arturo2 apologized to all travelers. He confessed that he did not
have much time left, because the relapse of his terminal disease was
progressing rapidly. This information greatly concerned Brown and Wells,
who did not know that Arturo2 was ill again.
Sliders listened to the story of Arturo1, who, unlike his double, did not
suffer from a terminal disease. After Professor1 was abandoned in
“The World with the Azure Gate Bridge,” he spent several
months constructing his own timer that could store dimensional
coordinates. When he succeeded, he started a long, lonely journey with the
hope that one day he would meet his companions again. As the years went
by, his hope faded away. Everything changed just three months ago, when
Arturo1 slid into the world where he is now, which is the dimension of
Diana and Mallory. When Professor1 realized that there was The Sliding
Research Center, he decided to abandon his journey. He deliberately missed
his next slide and joined the team of scientists to help them improve
their sliding technology.
had important news for Professor1 as well. He informed him that the
Sliders had recently found their way back to the Earth Prime, but
unfortunately, they were forced to leave it behind. Arturo1 replied that
thanks to the advanced technology developed at The Sliding Research
Center, he might be able to extract the coordinates of recently visited
worlds from Quinn's timer, even though the device didn’t seem to
store such data. Additionally, Professor1 upgraded Quinn’s timer
with the ability to manually enter and store coordinates as well as track
other wormholes. It was exactly what the alternate group of Sliders did
with the Egyptian timer. After briefly scanning Quinn's timer, Professor1
extracted from the device the coordinates of several recently visited
worlds. One of them was the coordinates of our dimension!
happy moment was quickly interrupted by loud explosions. It turned out
that more and more Manta ships were coming from other dimensions and
started to attack the The Sliding Research Center. Apparently, the
out that this was the place where the virus was being developed.
Unfortunately, the research team still needed several more hours to
release the right amount of the virus into the atmosphere. However, there
was another problem to solve. The virus would soon destroy the Kromaggs,
but what about the Zercurvians? Quinn suddenly had a brilliant idea. He
remembered that while watching Quinn2's adventures in the Kromagg
simulation, he had learned of two sliding inventions, which were the
Slidecage and the Slidewave. Quinn decided that the Slidewave might be the
best way to drive out both the Kromaggs and the Zercurvians from this
quickly picked up on the Slidewave idea. Before Quinn2 went on with his
three friends to search for their home, he told Dr. Davis that he had
encountered this type of force during his adventures. After the opening of
the The Sliding Research Center, Diana built a prototype of the device and
provided it with an additional power source, but now the scientists had to
work on it quickly. The Slidewave was a gigantic wormhole, which covers
huge areas, even the entire planet, and the effect of it was a mass
transfer of people to another dimension. The intense battle over Los
Angeles was still going on, so Diana, Quinn, Colin, Bennish, Dr. Jensen
and both Professors started
to work quickly. After a few hours, they managed to upgrade the device.
The Slidewave would send back from this dimension everything that did not
originate from it. Everything that had a foreign quantum signature, both
living beings and inanimate objects, would be returned. In order to
prevent the Sliders from disappearing from this dimension, as a result of
using Slidewave, their signatures were treated as exceptions and excluded
from the mechanism. In effect, the Slidewave would have the Kromaggs, the
Zercurvians, and their ships automatically transported back to the
dimensions they came from.
was only one hour left to the slide. Diana said the anti-Kromagg virus
would start working in a few hours, and the Slidewave could be activated
sooner. The Sliders decided to go to “The World with the Azure Gate
Bridge” first, and drop off Arturo2 there. The coordinates of this
world were still stored in the timer constructed by Arturo1, who had left
from this world. Secondly, they wanted to finally go back to Earth Prime.
Quinn, Wade, Remmy, and the two Professors said goodbye to Maggie, Colin,
Mallory, Diana, Bennish, and Jensen. Suddenly, part of the building they
were in collapsed. Diana led the way to an underground fallout shelter
where they could safely complete the construction of the Slidewave. During
the evacuation led by Maggie and Mallory, the ceiling collapsed and the
Sliders from our world were cut off from the others who managed to reach
the shelter safely.
Wade, Remmy, and the two Professors had no choice but to run outside of
the collapsing building. Once they got out of The Sliding Research Center,
the one-eyed Maraud, the leader of the Zercurvians, took advantage of the
situation. He shot out a beam at them which teleported all five travelers
straight to his ship. While in the underground shelter, Diana, Mallory,
Maggie, and Colin witnessed their capture through the monitors. After
being transferred to the Armada ship, the confused Sliders noticed that
Maraud was being accompanied by Quinn's female double, Logan St. Claire.
The woman explained that she had been following the Sliders for several
years. Recently, in a wormhole, she accidentally came across the Armada
and the dying Zercurvians. She managed to save this race by getting the
Armada out of the unstuck state. As a result, the two-dimensional
Zercurvians regained their three-dimensional bodies. After their rescue,
they decided to join forces with Logan St. Claire, who also sought her
revenge on Quinn and the Sliders.
battle in the sky was still raging over Los Angeles. Most of the American
planes and Kromagg Manta ships were successfully destroyed by only two
Zercurvian ships. Maraud thanked the travelers for letting the Zercurvians
come across the Kromaggs, a race of beings with an even higher energy
level than humans, who would be more nutritious for the Zercuvians than
the homo sapiens species. The leader stated that he was consistent in his
actions and kills all Mallorys he meets. At this moment, Maraud
three-dimensional hand into a two-dimensional appendage, and thus it
created a killer blade. He unexpectedly stabbed Logan with it, since she
was also a Mallory. After she fulfilled her task, it was clear to Maraud
that she had to die. Quinn walked over to the dying Logan and discreetly
removed her timer from her pocket. She managed to whisper her last words
to him, "Watch
out." Before Quinn could react, Maraud approached him. The
opponent swung to deliver the final blow. At this point, Arturo2 ran up
and pushed Quinn out of the way. Unfortunately, Professor2 took the
was terrified. She ran to Arturo2 and tried to stop the bleeding.
Suddenly, the Zercurvian ship tilted and shook. It was the result of the
fire from the new incoming Manta ships. Quinn looked at the timer, there
were three minutes left to the next slide. The Sliders took advantage of
the confusion and began to run away. Arturo1 and Remmy grabbed the heavily
wounded Arturo2, lifted him up, and started running away. Quinn had been
on one of the Armada ships a while ago, so he knew where to find the
generators. Once they reached them, Quinn broke into the computer and
remotely overloaded the sliding machine of both Zercurvian ships. The
timer finished its countdown and Quinn activated the wormhole. All five
travelers jumped into the tunnel. One-eyed Maraud was extremely furious
because Quinn had just escaped him once again. He ordered the Zercurvians
crew to trace the route of the Sliders to the next dimension.
The Sliding Research Center, Diana noticed that there was a space-time
disturbance aboard the Armada. She had correctly guessed that the Sliders
had opened the wormhole and slid. Colin informed Davis that, according to
Bennish and Jensen, the Slidewave mechanism was finished. Diana pressed
the button. From the ruined Sliding Research Center, a tremendous impulse
emerged and began to spread all around and pass through the buildings.
When the Slidewave reached the Kromagg ships, they vanished. Then the
scientists watched as the Slidewave approached the two Zercurvian ships.
Unexpectedly, powerful explosions took place inside them. As both ships
burned and fell towards the ground, the Slidewave suddenly took over them.
No trace of Armada was left. Maggie, Colin, Mallory, and Diana were
pleased with the effect of the Slidewave. Dr. Davis announced that they
urgently needed to work on releasing the virus into the atmosphere and on
constructing the Slidecage that would protect this world from further
invasions. Later they would rebuild the above-ground portion of The
Sliding Research Center.
Wade, Remmy, Arturo1, and the badly injured Arturo2, landed on the beach
right next to the Azure Gate Bridge in San Francisco. Professor2 was glad
that he would die in his dimension. He once again apologized to everyone
for leaving Arturo1 in this world several years ago. Quinn replied that
most of the time he hadn't known he was dealing with the double, and that
no matter which Professor he had traveled with, he treated them both like
a father. Wade started crying. Professor2 managed to deliver his final
words to Quinn. "Get them
home... Sliders..." The man then died looking up at his still
living double, whom he had greatly hurt. Arturo1 softly whispered, "I
forgive you," and then he closed his double's eyes.
looked at the timer and told his friends that there were only seven
minutes until the next slide. Then he took Logan's timer out of his
pocket, smashed it to the ground and threw it into the ocean. He comforted
his friends that from this moment on, no one would be following them.
Quinn was certain that when the Zercurvians attempted to make an
interdimensional jump, the Armada with all the Zercurvians on board,
exploded. The time has come
for probably the last slide. Quinn put in the timer the coordinates of the
Earth Prime, the world where the Sliders arrived a few months ago, but
they were forced to leave because of their personality disorder. This time
the Sliders hoped to come home for good. After a few minutes, Quinn
activated the timer and opened the tunnel. Unfortunately, the heroes had
to leave the late Arturo2 behind. Quinn walked over to the crying Wade,
hugged and kissed her on the cheek, before the couple ran towards the
opened vortex right behind Remmy and Arturo1.
four Sliders jumped into the wormhole, which was opened right next to the
Azure Gate Bridge. After a few seconds, the vortex closed. A second later,
in the next world, the tunnel opened at almost the same place. Four
travelers jumped out of it. While landing, Remmy ran straight into the
Professor. Arturo said that he had missed it for a very long time. Quinn
and Wade looked ahead and smiled. The red Golden Gate Bridge stood right
in front of them.
