When Rembrandt is contacted by long-lost Slider Wade, the Sliders follow her trail to a Kromagg compound that is using the human brain as computers to launch a deadly assault on Kromagg Prime.
But attitudes start to change when the doubting trio actually sees the rip materialize before them. Rembrandt tells them that he must jump through. The answers to his questions and their doubts are through that energy curtain. Reluctantly, Maggie, Mallory and Diana follow Rembrandt through to who knows what.
"What" turns out to be a very nasty place. On the other side of the rip the Sliders find themselves smack in the middle of a secret Kromagg base. There they learn that Wade's mind is being used a part of a heinous weapon that will help the Kromaggs repatriate their world from the humans.

"What if you found a portal to a parallel universe? What if you could slide into a thousand different worlds — where it's the same year, and you're the same person, but everything else is different? And what if you can't find your way home?"
