Storyline

The crew come across an abandoned ship with one survivor: Caroline Carmen, one of Lister's former crushes. She revives in the middle of the night and infects Lister with the dreaded Epideme virus, which threatens to kill him unless something is done. He tries talking with Epideme directly through a communication link, but nothing doing. He ends up losing an arm to the virus before Kochanski comes up with another solution. Written by Walsh (R-DBP)

Trivia

The original scripted ending was for Rimmer to let the Epideme infect him. Then, Rimmer deactivates himself leaving the Epideme exposed so that Cat can shoot it with a bazookoid. But because Chris Barrie left the series, the ending had to be changed. See more »

Goofs

When Kochanski punches Lister in the face, he reacts to her fist slightly before it actually touches him. See more »

Quotes

Dave Lister: What, you absorb knowledge from every person you kill?
Epideme: So, as you can appreciate, killing you ain't exactly a career highlight. No offense, but when you're a virus, there's not much call for knowing how to open a lager bottle with your ANUS!
