The Return of Maggie Beckett
Sliders, episode 79 (5.9)
Last Modified: 28 Jun 2006 13:30:03
It's a strange homecoming when our intrepid travelers slide into Maggie's home town of Fresno, arriving just outside the Maggie Beckett Municipal Park! The Sliders learn that on this world her duplicate is a canonized hero. Of course, oddities like this is just sliding S.O.P. But Maggie can't help but be a little unsettled when she learns that her doppleganger is also a VERY DEAD hero.
We quickly discover that this is a hi-tech Earth, having benefitted from mankind's first contact with extraterrestrials some fifty years ago. Because of this communion, spaceflight science is far more advanced than on most other worlds. Maggie's double commanded the first manned mission to Mars. Unfortunately, she along with her comrades disappeared on the way back to Earth. Maggie is now an icon and her memory a national treasure. Her name and likeness are immortalized in everything from city streets to fast food franchises.
Rembrandt, Mallory and Diana realize that it's probably best to keep Maggie under wraps. But that's easier said than done when rumors of her return run rampant, thanks in part to Mr. Xybo, a meddling Maggie Beckett Museum curator.
Maggie and the others are soon on the run from her worshiping fans, a military contingent lead by her duplicate's father General Beckett, and a bizarre human/alien hybrid who calls himself The Leader. He needs Maggie's corpse as proof of the government cover-up he alone is certain exists.
