Who Sliders 3 – Doctor Who and the Sliders: Doing the Deva Loka Dev Null Device

Share

This is the crossover fanfic in my series featuring Doctor Who (the Fifth Doctor – played by Peter Davison in the classic BBC tv series) – and the Sliders.

Story (C) 2001-2011 Mr SciRev.

For the Dr Who Timeline Related to this Fanfic, or to read what happened just before this fanfic, please see Who Sliders 2

General fanfic-timeline commentary is presented in blue

What you need to know:
The Doctor is a Time Lord – a time-traveller from the alien world called Gallifrey who travels in space and time thanks to his TARDIS which looks like a police box, bigger inside than outside. When the Doctor is severely injured or even killed, he will regenerate into a new appearance and body. He is currently in his fifth incarnation (4th regeneration). His thirteenth will be the last.

The Sliders have developed a technique called Sliding which allows them to go to different dimensions or parallel universes, but will they ever find the way to their home universe?

The Doctor with his companions – currently an australian hostess named Tegan, Hindle ( a previously deranged soldier from a future earth colony ), young irritating genius Adric, alien orphan and technological expert Nyssa and the Sliders – is on a crusade to champion the cause of the innocent, the helpless and the powerless throughout the whole multiverse of multiple universes. The Doctor’s alteration to the Sliders’ timeline has resulted in multiple changes across various multiverse timelines in hypertime. Fixing these holes is an important task of the Doctor which has been sanctioned by an angel of God called the White Guardian.

* * * * * * *

You remember how the Doctor radically changed the history of the Sliders – indeed their timeline was well altered for the better. But since they were travellers who went to various parallel earths, those different universes which they had visited, now were all altered as a result of this. To fix these holes, left in the various timelines of the multiverse, the White Guardian has entrusted the Doctor with the task of making things right. This is the first one. What had happened on this particular parallel earth, before its timeline was altered by both the Doctor’s arrival, as well as Barclay’s Pathfinder beam.
For the reader’s benefit, what happened ON THIS DAY before the previous timeline was changed (or rather wiped out) is presented in italics. It is as if it never happened, now that the Doctor changed the timeline…

“Wow! That was a rough slide, don’t you think!” Remmy said to Colin.
Colin was Quinn’s brother. They had just slid back from another parallel world. Colin was born on the same parallel earth as Quinn was, but unlike Quinn who grew up on “Earth Prime” ie Earth-001, Colin was taken to a rural parallel Earth. He grew to love nature and appreciate its beauty. He grew on a farm. He could see the Creator reflected in his world’s nature. He was always ready to help his friends and to give his life for them. When Quinn found him he had eventually travelled with them, until he got ‘unstuck’ in the Time Continuum, due to a dangerous experiment conducted by a certain Dr Geiger. What a bad timeline this was, Colin thought, while he was ‘unstuck’. He would repeatedly find himself in different worlds for a few seconds, popping in and out of them. Never stopping. Until something happened once, he managed to stay in one of them. And on that world, he met Remmy and the Sliders. But they were not the same Sliders he knew. They were a parallel version, alternates of his friends, who had never met him. It had taken time, but they finally got to trust him.

“We have arrived at the Chandler Hotel of our world!” Alternate-Quinn said.
These Sliders were able to go back to their own world, unlike our own Sliders. They went back home often.
They were always trying to find Colin’s Sliders, but it was difficult. Their world was technologically very advanced, and their year was 1691! It was very unusual to Colin, but the others were used to this.
This time they were so sure that his Sliders had arrived on their own homeworld (Earth-001), but they could not trace them. Alternate-Quinn thought that the problem might be Time itself, perhaps they would have arrived here, in the future.
This was the correct guess in fact. Centuries later, Mallory, Remmy, Maggie and Diana would find the other Sliders’ Timer in an archeological dig. Diana was a Slider he had not met, and Mallory was the result of Dr Geiger’s dna combination experiment, which combined (our) Quinn and an alternate Quinn into a single person, who took the name Mallory afterwards.

Colin looked around the street close to the Chandler Hotel. Wistful, he hoped to see his friends. He saw an old parking meter and wondered where it would be when the other Sliders would get here. Probably buried underground, he thought. It would take an archeological excavation to find it.
A war had started in this world’s middle east and quite soon it would arrive at the doorsteps of the Chandler Hotel. Abruptly, most of this world’s civilisation would come to an end. Sadly, Colin and the others would not live to tell their complete story. Their Timer would be found by Colin’s friends in the future.
This world’s Remmy was a hit singer who had accumulated many awards. Some of the locals who knew them were fans of Remmy. Lots of the awards and trophies were kept by some of them, in a special room. Some of the survivors of the war would keep their knowledge of it. Even though Remmy had died, some of them believed that this world’s Remmy had left their world by Sliding and would return one day. This legend came true, when the Remmy Colin knew arrived in this world, many centuries later.

Who Sliders 2 – Doctor Who and the Sliders: Parship Enterprise

Share

This is the crossover fanfic in my series featuring Doctor Who (the Fifth Doctor – played by Peter Davison in the classic BBC tv series – and the Sliders.

Story (C) 2001-2010 Mr SciRev.

Previous Episode:  Who Sliders 1
SPOILER: Star Trek: Voyager – Pathfinder episode

What you need to know:
The Doctor is a Time Lord – a time-traveller from the alien world called Gallifrey who travels in space and time thanks to his TARDIS which looks like a police box, bigger inside than outside. When the Doctor is severely injured or even killed, he will regenerate into a new appearance and body. He is currently in his fifth incarnation (4th regeneration). His thirteenth will be the last.

The Sliders have developed a technique called Sliding which allows them to go to different dimensions or parallel universes, but will they ever find the way to their home universe?

The Doctor with his companions – currently an australian hostess named Tegan, Hindle ( a previously deranged soldier from a future earth colony ), young irritating genius Adric, alien orphan and technological expert Nyssa and the Sliders – is on a crusade to champion the cause of the innocent, the helpless and the powerless throughout the whole multiverse of multiple universes. The Doctor’s alteration to the Sliders’ timeline has resulted in multiple changes across various multiverse timelines in hypertime. F-Space, as the Doctor calls it, or Universe-881 is the Federation universe as seen in the main Star Trek show’s reality. The Federation in Universe-001 has developed starships capable of sliding. Parships can Slide across parallel universes using ParTravel, based on Sliding technology. Captain Jefferson Archer of the Federation Parship U.S.S. Enterprise is himself from Earth-002 however.

* * * * * * *

Meanwhile, on a parship (Parallel-World Ship) orbiting the planet, Captain Jefferson Archer was getting anxious that his Science Officer had not returned on board. The parship was from the 23rd Century but in this universe time moved more slowly, so it was still 2001 here. It was like they had went back in time, but they hadn’t.
Something must have gone wrong, he deduced. He ordered a scan of the building which his Science Officer was supposed to examine. Before the scan had finished an incoming signal was received.
Suddenly the Sliders, Doctor Who and his companions all beamed on board of the real Parship Enterprise.
Wade said “Wow! This place is even cooler than the virtual version!”
“Virtual version? And who are you?” Archer asked.
“Captain Archer, this is Miss Wade Wells. The four of us here call ourselves the Sliders since we Slide through parallel universes – Mister Rembrandt Brown, Mister Quinn Mallory and myself Professor Maximillian Arturo. This is the Doctor, and his companions: Miss Tegan Jovanka, Mister Adric of Alzarius and Miss Nyssa of Traken. This person is Hindle of the earth military from a parallel universe. We all are from parallel universes, as you can see. We Sliders are from what we call Earth-Prime. The Doctor, Hindle and his companions are from another universe. The Doctor calls it the N-Space universe.”
“I’m from the E-Space universe actually.” Adric pointed out.
“These parallels are headache inducing”, Archer said. “But your story interests me greatly. The Sliders are well known as the inventors of the Sliding Technology hundreds of years ago.”

Who Sliders 1 – Doctor Who and the Sliders: Leisure Centre Hotel

Share

This is a crossover fanfic featuring Doctor Who (the Fifth Doctor – played by Peter Davison in the classic BBC tv series – and the Sliders. It happens after the events in the fanfic Doctor Who and the X-Men: The Director’s Cut. It is inspired by elements of a Sliders episode (one with the second team, ok, so which does not happen in my fictional version of Sliders), a Stargate SG-1 episode and of course Mr. Brittas series.

It is really great to hear of the DVD release of the mara episodes, now that I am republishing my related fanfics.

The first WhoSliders series starred the 5th Doctor, and it happens before the Time War. The second series starred Rose Tyler, after the Time War.

Story (C) 2001-2010 Mr SciRev.

Earth-2001
* * * * * * *

A long time ago, on a parallel earth, boredom lead the inhabitants to build more and more leisure centres. The most advanced technology was used in these centres so that the visitors to the centres could relax. Many people gladly gave up their work as the government was paying them a larger amount than they had ever earned as a salary, and all they had to do was relax, in these centres.

At a particular leisure centre in Britain, a humming noise could be heard. Suddenly the particles of the air at one corner of a storage room began shimmering, until a form was apparent. It was the form of a Police Call Box. The TARDIS had materialised in the storage room.

“Doctor, where are we?”, Quinn asked.
“This could hardly be Deva Loka”, Tegan interjected.
“You know, Doctor, at times this TARDIS does not seem to work as it should.” Hindle told the Doctor.
“That’s enough. Hindle. Need I remind everyone how you almost blew Deva Loka up when we were there? This is Earth, 21st Century, it is the year 2001. We have left the parallel universes of the X-Men, I call that X-Space for convenience. This is still not our universe.” the Doctor said.
“This looks like a storage compartment to me. Perhaps we will have an Odyssey, or a Travesty in 2001. I still have not completely gotten over the fact that I was going to be killed by that madman Rickman.” Professor Arturo said.
