After going missing for 18 months, Sliders Quinn Mallory, Rembrandt Brown, Wade Welles and Maximillian Arturo returned to a media blitz about the discovery of transdimensional travel.

Then, after a few weeks, Mallory, Welles and Brown disappeared again. Arturo was left alone, and his only working timer stolen by those who had been his friends.
