Rembrandt, Maggie, Mallory and Diana are fished out of the middle of the ocean by a merchant captain and his crew. They find they are outside their sliding radius on a boat that is taking them farther away from this important zone with each passing minute. It's pretty obvious that something has gone terribly wrong with the timer. A failsafe function in the device normally prevents this from happening.

Diana determines that the timer needs a re-charge. But that doesn't solve their immediate problem. The captain won't turn the ship around and, because this world never developed lightweight aircraft alloys, there are no helicopters available to take them back to L.A. and into the sliding radius.

When the ship is boarded by modern day pirates the Sliders decide that the only way to get back to the mainland is to join the buccaneer crew who are heading in that direction. The problem is, some of the pirates suspect our heroes of being undercover federal agents. Can they be trusted to deliver the Sliders to safe ground? Or will the pirates send them to their deaths at the end of a long wooden plank?
