I just slide in from another world where the series writers weren't idiots. Much of the tension in this world's Exodus II was because Rembrant and Wade wanted to go home, but Quinn wanted to keep his promise to help the people of that world. I guess this Quinn bumped his head. The _Sliders_ episode in the parallel world had Quinn kiss Wade and Rembrant goodbye and turn on the controller in his hand. Arturo followed. What did he care? The timer had the coordinates in its memory and in this one case it made no sense to have everyone slide at once (although there's still the nagging doubt that they really found the right homeworld -- wouldn't be the first time dear old mom recognized him) Since this timer wasn't random, there was no risk of them being separated, as long as he retained the timer. The ending of the show left Quinn and the walking recruitment poster for the USMC chasing the Evil Commander because he had the timer with E' coordinates (Quinn's reason) and her husband's murder, not because of Arturo's and the husband's murder. That left the door open for JDR's occasional cameo appearance working on Slider technology on E', in the desperate hope to determine why Quinn didn't make it back. -- Bear Giles bear'at'indra'dot'com -- Bear Giles To treat your facts with imagination is one thing, firstname.lastname@example.org but to imagine your facts is another. -- John Burroughs

Others wrote the script, which may bear only a passing resemblance to JRD's story. You'd have to compare the two to see. -- Stop by http://www.fred.net/thirteen/
