Storyline

The Sterling family goes on vacation to Egypt and visits one of the pyramids. However, they get lost while wandering around in the labyrithine interior of the pyramid. When they finally make it out of the pyramid, they discover that they're no longer on Earth. Instead, they've somehow been transported to another planet. And the natives (run by an autocratic dictator) aren't very friendly... Written by Afterburner <aburner@erols.com>

Trivia

The world the Sterling family is trapped on is called "Thel". Thel consists of 77 provinces ruled from a capitol called "Imar," which waged the so-called "Unification Wars" to bring the provinces under its control. Though they share some common aspects such as language and technology, each province is somewhat unique in terms of culture and industry. Both communications and travel between provinces is heavily restricted by the zone troopers. See more »

If you liked Sliders, you'd probably have liked Otherworld
12 January 2003 | by (Cleveland, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Although the characters and the plot was different, the premise is very similar: a group of people (a family this time) are on a parallel world trying to get back to their own. Instead of sliding from one universe to the next, they travel extensively on the world they originally entered. Each "province" they travel to is as different as the worlds that the Sliders visited.
