Arnold "Ace" Rimmer is a daredevil test pilot for the space corps, and he has been assigned to test-pilot a ship that can travel through dimensions, so he can meet many different versions of himself. He enters our dimension to meet our Rimmer, who has gone on a fishing holiday with the crew.

Lister tells Rimmer that he use to go condom fishing. In real life, people who went to fishing would end up catching used condoms in rivers instead of fish. See more
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

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
