four Sliders waited anxiously in the vastness of an overgrown grassy
meadow. The Professor’s gaze was intensely fixed on the disturbingly
large mound that arose from the ground beneath them. He desperately hoped
that the gaping hole at the peak of the dune was not the entrance to an
undesirable colony. With only 33 seconds remaining on the timer, Quinn
assured the Professor, that the group was not in danger. Unfortunately,
those comforting words were very short-lived as the ground below them
started to rumble. Emanating from the trembling mound, emerged an ant so
massive, that it towered over its terrified prey. Descending quickly, the
creature scurried towards the Sliders as the seconds ticked away for their
Season 6 credits: Quinn,
Remmy, The Professor,
Sliders were in a world where evolution did not create the Homo sapiens
species. The societies of this Earth were made not by humans, but by giant
ants. One of those ants was instinctually chasing them. Quinn pressed the
activation button on the timer and opened the wormhole out. Unfortunately,
the ant caught Rembrandt with its impressively long legs. Wade grabbed a
piece of wood found along the way and began to hit the insect with it. The
monster released Remmy and all of them safely jumped into the portal.
time the travelers slid to San Francisco. Unfortunately, the city was
abandoned and devastated. It looked like a nuclear apocalypse took place
there. The trams were overturned on the ground and the buildings looked as
though they were about to fall apart. To make matters worse, Quinn noticed
the timer stopped working before he checked to see how much time was left
before the next slide. Suddenly, out of nowhere, a large space-looking
ship covered with strange growths emerged in the sky. While the ship
appeared to be organic, the Sliders noted that it was not a Kromagg Manta
ship, but was a ship of a different, unknown civilization. While studying
the ship, a woman ran out of a nearby building. She looked skinny, scary
and fraught as if her bodily tissue and the energy of life had been
removed or drained from her body. She was surprised to see the Sliders, or
any strong and healthy humans. Suddenly, the mysterious ship shot a yellow
beam at the woman, and froze her in place. She could not move. When the
Sliders ran over to help her, the woman fell apart before their eyes.
Immediately turning to dust!
protagonists decided that they had to get onto the deadly ship because it
was probably the cause of their frozen timer. It turned out that the
vehicle hovered near one of San Francisco's tallest buildings. The Sliders
climbed onto a nearby roof and found a metal bar, which might allow them
to pole-vault themselves to the craft. Quinn tied a rope around his waist
and was about to make the jump, when Wade reassured him by kissing him
tenderly. He leapt from the roof and landed on top of the ship where he
proceeded to tie his end of the rope to one of the strange green growths,
which allowed the others to board. They opened the hatch and entered the
Quinn found an apparatus, which was proof that the vehicle was intended
for interdimensional travel. Suddenly, a strange creature appeared in
front of them. It was a tall and extremely slim, humanoid-like creature
with pink skin and growths on its face. The creature explained that its
name was Maraud
and that he was a representative of the Zercurvian race. This race came
from a parallel world where reality was two-dimensional or flat. Some
Zercurvians were fed up with living in such a world and dreamed of
reaching the third dimension, where they dreamt of gaining height. After
years of research and many attempts, a group of Zercurvians managed to
open a wormhole that could take them to another world. Unfortunately,
there was a dangerous accident in the vortex, which resulted in the deaths
of many two-dimensional beings. Only a few Zercurvians made it out of the
tunnel and onto a parallel, three-dimensional world. It turned out they
had slid into the basement of Quinn Mallory’s double.
Zercurvians, who gained three-dimensional forms after appearing in his
basement, fascinated the alternate Quinn. He made friends with them and
taught them all about the science and technology of sliding.
Unfortunately, it turned out that a side effect of the Zercurvians'
traverse in the wormhole was a hunger for three-dimensional energy. In
order for two-dimensional beings to
maintain their three-dimensional forms, they needed to absorb that energy
from other three-dimensional beings. This doppelganger Quinn would be
their first of their many victims. It was a trick that Quinn would never
see coming! Maintaining their form, the three-dimensional Zercurvians
constructed several additional ships designed specifically for
interdimensional travel. It was with this Armada that worlds were invaded
and the Zercuvians drained the energy they required for life. Maraud
explained that many of Quinn’s doubles had been encountered on their
travels, and that the Zercuvians had learned a lot from each of them.
Unfortunately the thanks Quinn received for teaching them how to store
dimensional coordinates and to track other wormholes was the same as every
Quinn before him. Maraud killed every Mallory he encountered.
only thing that Maraud couldn’t do was to open the wormholes
whenever he desired. The leader of the Zercurvians demanded that our Quinn
teach him how to do so. After he refused to comply, Zercuvian
reinforcements appeared beside to Maraud, and thing began to get heated.
An alarming series of beeps from Quinn’s pocket indicated that not
only was the timer working again but there was only a seconds remaining to
the window. With the portal activated, the Sliders escaped their
imprisonment and certain execution.
Sliders appeared in another world near the Dominion Hotel. When they
settled down in their room and turned on the TV, they found out that they
were in a dimension where humans had been conquered by aliens. In 1947,
after the Roswell incident, the government signed an agreement with the
alien Reticulan race, and as a result, humans became their slaves.
Frightened, the Sliders realized that they jumped out of the frying pan
and into another fire - a moment ago they were in the world invaded by the
Zercurvians, and now by the Reticulans.
