    That bit where there was time travel to a previous event in the show.

    When? I don't believe such a thing happened!

    In Skipper, Rimmer travels across time and space visiting different dimensions. During his first ‘skip’ he appears about a version of Red Dwarf where the radiation leak is happening, a previous event on the show.

    Ah, but you see, that was in an alternate universe. In the version in the show's past, Rimmer was not a hologram and Hollister wasn't in an escape pod. While it resembles events from the show's past, that's just as accurate as calling the Lister-is-captain reality "an event from the show's past" since it, too, technically happens in what could be guessed as the past.

    Ah but you see, shut up Abe.

    The radiation leak did happen in the shows past, Lister as captain didn't.

    Haven't you got homework or something?

    Neither did Hollister getting in an escape pod shortly before his death.

    We're on break this week.

    Oh.

    Tbh you could pick apart that first skip very easy since

    1. Rimmer is a hologram before the radiation leak
    2. Rimmer is still older so presumably this isn't in the past
    3. Rimmer touches a console as a hologram.

    Who are we to complain about Doug Taylor’s writing?
