That timer is still in existance, but inoperative for another 29 years. It was on this world, where they picked up a second timer, the Egyptian timer, that led them to Apocolypse Earth, Refugee Earth and the next Earth that we no nothing about other than that Rickman was there and gone. So, the new foursome are still using Egyptian timer. Rickman has the Apocolyspe timer. I hope that's clear now.

I'm a bit confused...what has happened to each timer? Did they lose the original timer in "Double Cross" or not until "Slide Like An Egyptian"? So they had the Egyptian Timer, so now which timer to they have? Which timer does the colonel have? So is sliding still going to work randomly or not? Thanks... -John

In the episode Slide Like An Egyptian, the sliders MISSED their slide and that rendered thier (flip phone) timer, useless. The arcitect of the pyramid had his own (remote control) timer to slide out of the to-be-sealed pyramid. how convienient. Anyway, the sliders are now useing that timer in place of thier own. The colonal's (kinda bean shaped) timer, and for the life of me I can't think of his name, is useing the radiated Earth's system to slide. At will prsumably, I don't know. Anyway, his timer was used to scout for a new Earth and one Earth visited was Earth Prime, his timer stored those cordinants so that the sliders could slide home. But, scence he took off with that timer, thier now chaseing him to get his timer with earth prime's corodinants in it. Also, the slider's (remote control) timer (also known as the egyptian timer) was modified on the radiated Earth, so that they could track wormholes and store parallel Earth corodinants too. I hope I helped, if it's still confuseing, e-mail me at: mailto:clintt@flash.net Don't miss the slide!
