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.
