The Red Dwarf crew intercepts a SOS distress call from the American Space cruiser "Nova 5", that has crashed on a moon. They find the only survivor is Kryten, an android butler, whose favorite TV show is 'Androids'.

(#2.1) originally ended with Kryten being seen leaving Red Dwarf on Lister's spacebike and flying off into space. The ending was filmed, but the broadcast of (#2.1) ended with a freeze frame, when Kryten revs up Lister's spacebike engine. However, the full ending was reinstated for the remastered version.

His name's Rimmer, or Smeghead, or Dinosaur Breath or Molecule Mind. And on a special occasion when you wanna be like really mega polite to him, I mean really, really polite, in these exceptional circumstances you can call him... arsehole.
