The mysterious final slide begins as the group's travels through many parallel worlds comes to a dramatic end.
An energy barrier threatens to consume everything in its path as the sliders rush to prevent Mallory (Robert Floyd) from being transformed into their nemesis, Dr. Geiger (guest star Peter Jurasik).
The sliders discover Los Angeles under a desert and Rembrandt (Cleavant Derricks) is worshipped as an ancient deity.
The sliders must pull off the heist of a precious gem that they need to fix their malfunctioning timer.
After being dumped in the middle of the Pacific ocean, the sliders are rescued by a merchant ship populated by a band of pirates.
The Sliders land at the Einman Resort Hotel, an adult playground that features highly realistic games putting guests into simulated environments in which they must use their wits and skill to survive. Mallory (Robert Floyd) wants to fight in the Civil War, while Rembrandt (Cleavant Derricks) opts for a 1970s-style urban detective scenario. Maggie (Kari Wuhrer) and Diana (Tembi Locke) decide to skip the games and relax in the Roman Spa. Rembrandt meets Fred (Kevin West), a guest who is to be his partner in the detective game. He is experienced, and offers to show Rembrandt the ropes. They enter a holographic projection of a New York City street circa 1975, and it is so realistic that it takes Rembrandt's breath away. Meanwhile, Mallory joins the Confederate troops battling the North in the War Between the States. He charges a hologram of a Union soldier, and is surprised when the man stops and sadly asks him why he is killing them. When he is struck by a bullet, he falls to the ground and disappears.
The Sliders arrive at Oakwood Institute, which appears to be a sort of mental hospital. The patients are roaming the grounds without supervision, and one of them, a man who plays a violin without strings (Paul Sand), says they're having a riot. Maggie (Kari Wuhrer) and Rembrandt (Cleavant Derricks) decide to look around. Suddenly police cars pull up and helmeted officers order the patients to return to their rooms. Everyone begins running toward the building. Diana (Tembi Locke) and Mallory (Robert Floyd), unsure of what to do, follow along. Rembrandt and Maggie see a sign on the front gate identifying the place as a neural remapping institute. Not sure what it means, but certain it can't be good, they slip through the gate as it begins to close.
The Sliders find themselves in a beautiful Japanese garden, but Rembrandt (Cleavant Derricks) finds himself in a swirling void, separate from the others, even though they're right there with him. He thinks he can see Wade (Maria Stanton), a friend they lost to the evil Kromaggs many slides ago, and he calls out her name. Diana (Tembi Locke) suggests he may be hallucinating as the result of too many slides, and he remains in a kind of trance. When they slide again, they find themselves in a room at the Chandler Hotel, and Rembrandt sleeps. He dreams of the time he and Wade spent in the Kromagg prison. She had begged for his help, but he was so addled by the Kromagg drugs that when they came to take her away, all he could do was watch impassively.
The Sliders drop into an open desert. Rembrandt (Cleavant Derricks) gives them the bad news that they're stuck here for three days, so they trudge off in search of civilization. On a two-lane highway, they flag down a bus with the name Kincaid Petroleum, Inc., painted on its side. It stops, and the driver lets them board. Inside, all the passengers appear to be workers for the company. Mallory (Robert Floyd) sits next to Sam (Lisa Akey), an attractive woman who says they're on their way to their work site. When they arrive, two officers with the Air Quality Management District show up with the body of a man, known as a Smoker, in their truck. Clearly wanting to make an example of him before the eyes of the workers, they strap the body to a fence for all to see.
The Sliders arrive in Fresno, California, Maggie's (Kari Wuhrer) birthplace. She is shocked to see that streets and public parks have been named after her. A sculpture in the courthouse square is dedicated to Lieutenant Colonel Margaret Beckett, a heroic astronaut. They visit the Maggie Beckett Museum, where they are greeted by Mr. Xybo (Rob LaBelle), who tells them the astronaut's story. Maggie was the leader of the crew of the Intrepid, a mission that managed to land on Mars, but didn't make it back.
In a world reminiscent of America in the roaring '20s, Harrell (Shane Stevens) encounters Brownie (Cleavant Derricks), a cop, in the alley outside the Hippo Club where he plays the piano. Brownie shoots him with his service revolver and searches his pockets. Unable to find what he's looking for, he leaves in disgust. Nearby, the vortex opens, and the Sliders emerge. A scream pierces the air, and they hurry to the alley to find Angie Morgan (Jennifer Leigh Warren), owner of the Hippo Club, kneeling over Harrell's body.
In a parallel Los Angeles, President Jefferson Williams (Eric Pierpoint) is giving a speech. As reporters anxiously ask him vapid questions about his sex life, a scruffy but earnest young man, Bobby Hawks (Michael Manasseri), wants to know about America's war with Switzerland. Williams' eyes flash in anger, but he ignores the question. The Sliders arrive and hear a crowd cheering, so they go to see what's happening. Maggie (Kari Wuhrer) is pushed into Williams' arms. As he holds her tight, cameras flash, and soon her face is splashed on the television news, being identified as the woman with whom Williams has been having a secret affair.
The Sliders arrive in a peaceful small town and see that a company named Data Universal seems to own everything. Maggie (Kari Wuhrer) tries to use a vending machine, but it doesn't take cash. Instead, an electronic voice asks for her data number. When she presses a button, a laser beam scans her. Suddenly a driverless van pulls up and she is propelled into it by the force of the laser. It speeds away as the others watch in disbelief. She finds herself trapped in a pristine white cell, a bar code bracelet strapped to her wrist.
The Sliders are being pursued through a totalitarian world ruled by a military group known as the Bureau of Internal Reconstruction (BIR). The soldiers are led by General Krislov (Stephen Macht), an efficient, cruel-looking martinet. A civilian mob, led by a bitter young woman, Jill (Angela Bettis), is crying for their blood. The vortex opens and they leap inside, but Mallory (Robert Floyd) is hit by a soldier's laser gun. They arrive in a world similar to the one they just left, but in this one, the BIR has been overthrown. Mallory is terrified because his legs are paralyzed, and he is brought to the home of Dr. Krislov, a duplicate of the general in the earlier world, except this time he is battle-scarred and walks with a cane.
The Sliders arrive on a freezing, desolate island. Having just come from a tropical climate, their clothes are barely adequate, and Maggie (Kari Wuhrer) is unconscious and burning up with fever. They take her to a nearby monastery to seek help and are admitted by Seth (Austin Nichols), a young man whose father, Keeper Abraham (Granville van Dusen), is angry that he let the outsiders in. Keeper James (Bob Youngblood) is the monastery's physician, and he takes Maggie to the infirmary. At dinner, Abraham explains to the travelers that the people who live on this remote island are the keepers of peace and harmony, living simple lives in this sanctuary away from the evil elements of the world. The men and women live separately, and each of them has daily duties to perform. Sara (Vicki Davis), a young girl Seth's age, quizzes Diana (Tembi Locke) about life off the island, but Abraham silences her. The Sliders are sent to their quarters after dinner and are locked inside.
The Sliders arrive in a remote military compound, which seems to be abandoned. Scanning the landscape, Diana (Tembi Locke) believes they're not on Earth, but on a planet that exists in hyperspace. As they investigate their surroundings, they are unaware that soldiers in tattered uniforms are watching them surreptitiously. They prepare to bed down in one of the abandoned tents and the soldiers rush in, led by Sergeant Vernon Larson (Jerry Doyle). His command is shrinking by the moment, so he orders them to suit up and join his ranks.
