Trivia

Anita Dobson's cameo in this episode as Captain Tau came as a result of her partner (later husband) Brian May being approached to provide Lister's hands for his guitar solo. Although May wasn't available, Dobson agreed to play Tau when the possibility was mentioned to her. Rob Grant and Doug Naylor later stated that had they known that Dobson was willing and available they would have written a more substantial part for her. See more »

Goofs

When Kryten is rebooting Rimmer's hologrammatic form, the computer display gives Rimmer's species as 'Homo sapien'. It should be 'Homo sapiens'. See more »
