The Sliders become alarmed when their timer begins to malfunction. Landing roughly in the next world, the Sliders are puzzled as to what the problem might be. Diana takes the timer apart and concludes a defective crystal needs to replaced. Meanwhile, a film festival is taking place and the Chandler Hotel is brimming with movie stars. Monique Mansfield, the Goddess of Sex, sports a fabulous gem around her neck. Using Mallory’s charm to gain information from Monique, the Sliders plan to steal it from her in an elaborate heist a la Mission Impossible. Diana is in charge of disabling the hotel’s security system, Rembrandt will be the lookout, and Maggie and Mallory are the cat burglars. Everything goes smoothly until Maggie and Mallory discover another intruder in Monique’s room. Maggie runs after the burglar, but soon loses the chase. Diana begins dating Grant Curtis, unaware that he is the hotel’s security specialist. Soon, she and the rest of the Sliders are recruited to help catch the real thief, which they do. Unmasked, the burglar turns out to be…Monique! Grateful for their assistance, Grant rewards the Sliders with a gem, which they use to repair the timer.
Are we visiting the unseen world from Double Cross where Rembrandt got his new boots?
Why Glimpse World? Because you only get a glimpse before the vortex opens and sucks the Sliders back in!
Similar to Boots World from the outset, this world has an overabundance of huge, vibrating crystals from the Chapare region in South America.
Five years ago, a Spanish explorer named Enriquez discovered the valley of Chapare in Bolivia. The region, close to the Cordillera of the Andes, contains an abundance of “living gems” used widely in religious ceremonies and healing rituals by the Aymara Indians as far back as the 17th century. These gems vibrate so strongly that the carat scale has been abandoned in favor of the hertz scale. A fringe item, Elizabeth Taylor purchased one a few years back and the rest, as we say, is history.
Chapare World hold several large film festivals around the world, with one especially high-profile gathering in Los Angeles at the Chandler Hotel. Monique Mansfield, the Goddess of Sex and the Queen of the Festival is currently incarcerated following his arrest for the theft of several high-priced “living gems.”
