I just read a book about a war between two crosstime traveling civilizations called "The Closers" (who want to take over all the timelines) and ATN (who are fighting to keep the timelines free from the Closers). I would like to see an episode in which the Sliders finally reach Earth Prime, only to have the Kromag attack shortly thereafter. After Earth Prime defeats the Kromag, the Sliders would visit alternate Earths to recruit allies and find the Kromag home timeline. Earth Prime would sent other Slider teams out to do the same, and create a Slider Corps to defend it from the Kromag and Logan. The book is "Patton's Spaceship" by John Barnes. -- Timothy S.
