Trivia

Chris Barrie modeled Ace Rimmer's voice after Sean Connery. See more »

Goofs

Ace should have appeared at the time Rimmer was either 2nd Technician on Red Dwarf or dead owing to the accident (their ages appear comparable). The Dimension Jump ship is not a time machine so could not have sent Ace 3 million years into the future. See more »

Quotes

Rimmer: You don't like Reggie Wilson? What? Not even "Pop Goes Delius" or "Funking Up Wagner"?
Dave Lister: I prefer something slightly more melodious like the long, drawn-out death rattle of a man suffering from terminal flatulence.

Crazy Credits

The end credits have the Red Dwarf theme as an instrumental played on a Hammond Organ in reference to Rimmer's liking of Hammond Organ music. See more »
