    Which bunk room is your favourite?

    I really liked the BITR S8 one which was basically the S1 and 2 bunk room with better quality props and a bigger budget, and I also love the RDX bunk room, it's hard to choose between the two.

    Series 1 for me. This is a factory mining ship remember and as such would have virtually no amenities. Series 1 's more Spartan look fit right in with its real life mission of being a glorified dumptruck. Yes, I have a hunch that even that long into the future, huge corporations will be looking to squeeze as much profit as possible out of each piece of equipment.

    I like Series II's, because it looks like a bunkroom should on such a commercial vessel with more personal touches from its inhabitants. But from later series I think series X is difficult to beat.

    I think the same. Series I is great, but Series II is exactly how it should be on a huge spaceship that is only their to make money... all grey and dull, with a few things added by the crew to break the monotony

    Season 1 for me. I like the grey, dull, austere look of it. It's similar to how Infinity Welcomes Careful Drivers describes it too. My least favourite would be the ones used in the more recent seasons.

    Your personality on here most closely matches Arnold Judus Rimmer.

    Series 3, 4 and 5 for me. Those Officers quarters looked amazing and much better than the drab looking series 1 and 2 bunk room.

    Its easier to name my least favourite which was the white ones from season 3-5.

    1-2 just seems like what quarters would look like if we ever did travel into space so they are probably my favourite.

    I do like the red of the current seasons seaons which is is why it's hard to decide between them and the original.

    Probably the bunk bed I had as a kid with my brother. It creaked but was fun.
    My mum chopped it in half and made it into a Cabin bed. I made a pretend shop underneath.

    Any other bed questions I can help with?

    I'm going through a re-watch at the moment (currently on Stasis Leak) and I would agree with some previous peeps that the Series 2 bunk room looks and feels the most appropriate. The recent sets obviously have their appeal (more money so better quality, larger etc) but there's something cool about the cheap, Doctor Who-esque wobbly grey sets from S1 and S2.

    Never really dug the current quarters tbh. They don't feel very sleeping quartery.... the 1st couple looked like plebs and then officers....but these ones....looks like an engineering room with shelves. Doesn't look like a set of living quarters to me. Surely as last people on the ship wouldn't they opt for the best of the best quarters rather than a step down from the officers quarters? And I don't buy the flooded argument as the ship is 5 miles long.....Surely they have officers quarters all over?
