Trivia

The special effects in the fourth season take a very noticeable dive in quality, as the series had just been cancelled by Fox before being resurrected by the Sci-Fi Channel, which left the show with an overall lower production budget.

In the final season, Cleavant Derricks' character, Rembrandt Brown, is the only remaining original cast member.

Even though the production of the show went on continuously between season 3 and season 4, it had a year hiatus from airing when it was dropped by Fox and picked up by Sci-Fi, making the airing years (1995-1997, 1998-2000).

It was intended that the series would return for a sixth season, which is why we are left to wonder what happened to Rembrant in the final episode "The Seer".

The Mallory brothers are named Colin and Quinn; Kari Wuhrer co-starred with Colin Quinn on "Remote Control" (1987). It is unclear whether this is an in-joke or purely coincidental.

Jerry O'Connell (Quinn) wrote an episode treatment entitled "Narcotica," which took place on an Earth where drugs had been legalized. The story was rejected by the network for being "too dark," but later found life as a "Sliders" comic book.
