1997-03-12 00:00:00 - Pulsar Earth - (Brian Sloan <bsloan@access.k12.wv.us>)


When the sliders saved the people from the other Earth they went through their vortex and landed on the Earth the people they saved were on. Quinn fought with the guy that was putting the people in charge then the guy escaped into the vortex. Now, how did he open a vortex when the base that the timer operates with was on the earth that was destroyed by the pulsars.

You posted the same question somebody else did, look at the messages, Slid generator/timer, you'll have a somewhat lucid answer

Maybe the timer was designed so that it could work with out the base since they knew it was going to be destroyed?

Anyways, I think it's been somewhat clear that the power is only needed to open the vortex initially and that the timer can do it from that point on. -- Micheal (Chris) Keane - Associate Professor of Psychogravitational Analysis Wooden Chair of Gravitational Morality, University of Ediacara Join the Church of Last Thursday and worship Queen Maeve!

I think they *did* mention something in the first part (?) of the two parter that said that the pulsar's radiation would be like a neutron bomb going off where most organic material would be irradiated and destroyed, but the inorganic material would remain. The world would only be inhabitable after the background radiation reached acceptable levels again... possibly a few thousand years? Maybe just the cockroaches would survive... BTW-Has anyone see the movie "The Hellstrom Chronicle?" But Micheal is correct, the world did appear to physically explode... this seems to me like a continuity error. Maybe it could be explained away by saying that pulsars are only theoretical and they don't know exactly what would happen. In addition, I could be totally off base, but I don't think that a pulsar would emit solid material, only radiation, so why did it look like radiation emitting meteors were flying at that earth?

Perhaps the statement that inorganic material would be ok was based on the assumption that there was only one pulsar. But when more of them showed up, the amount of radiation meant more cataclysmic results. ????? PEace Gilberto

Yeah, Earth blew up, did a Krypton, whatever. The writers forgot between parts one and two that the pulsars were supposed to leave everything intact as they passed by. This may have been done to really really really get rid of Arturo (whose body was left behind), or it may have been done to explain why everybody just didn't go really really really deep into a mineshaft somewhere until the danger was over, a la DR.

I've noticed this same problem before and I've decided to myself that the explanation must be that the main machine is only necessary for creating the wormhole(sliding tunnel) that extends through the multiverse. Once it is created it is self sustaining. The timer is used to access the wormhole when it becomes 'available'. Obviously the first harmonic encountered has a variable character but apparently the second harmonic is constantly 29.5 years. I think that should be modified. They should make the period of availablity more wavelike. Anyway, if that's not the show's official explanation, it should be (big grin!). I like to amuse myself by watching the show. Spotting the stupid inconsistencies and then trying to explain them away in context to the show. I'm still having a tough time explaining away the appearence of the killer, rouge neutron star cluster. My best explaination is a combination of opitical illusion caused by poor camera placement of the space probe that obviously provided we viewers with the image and unevenly accreating matter that is passed between the tidally locked group of neutron stars. Yes, I have obviously put way too much thought into this matter ; - ) ! As for the lack of early detection, well, that's because the trail of fragments is coming at such a high speed and coming from such a strange angle, well, we just didn't see them until they were almost upon us.

The entire scene, they were obviously looking down at something and I expected them to pull back and show a gravestone or something. But the scene ended without showing what it was.
