Storyline

A escape pod containing a "Microbe", a genetically-engineered virus that eats metal and programmed not to harm glass, has arrived on-board "Red Dwarf" and begins to eat away at the ship. Left aboard to die, Rimmer, Lister, Cat, Kryten, Kochanski and Holly believe their only chance at finding an antidote is in a mirror universe where everything is opposite. Rimmer is sent in, hoping for success before Red Dwarf is destroyed by the Microbe. Written by Daniel Williamson
