In a San Francisco basement, physics post-graduate student Quinn Mallory has found a way to create portals to parallel universes. Inviting his physics professor Maximillian Arturo and his computer store colleague Wade Wells for a trip, a series of mishaps ropes in passing singer Rembrandt Brown and takes the Sliders off their planned route. Upon discovering a frozen world and one where Russia rules America, the quartet begins to doubt that they will be able to return to their own world anytime soon... Written by

In the dinner scene at the end the characters propose several ideas that would become episodes throughout the series. Arturo says that Einstein regretted giving the world the atom bomb, they would enter a world where he did in fact not give the world the bomb in Sliders: Last Days
(1995). Rembrandt says he might still be singing out there and would visit a world where he became so famous he faked his death and became an Elvis like figure in Sliders: The King Is Back
(1995). See more
