    Check out today's updates on The Space Corps website

    These include an extra little bit on the map (including an address! Yes!) and a rather brilliant new trailer once you've logged in entitled "GUNS, CARS AND THE CREW". It shows a lot of the new affects (which look pretty impressive. Loved the hologram bit a the end in particular) and a certain other sexy hologram for the first time in at trailer.

    And a clue to how they got to Earth...

    (I'm not including the behind the scenes stuff here.)

    Oh, I had just posted a new topic on this right when you posted yours. Yes, I THINK THE TRAILER IS SMEGGING AWESOME!!!:-D:-D:-D:-D:-D:-D

    I've only been this excited about BtE three times. Once, when it was announced, second, when I saw the first picture, and third, NOW!

    Smeg. While I was writing that SMEGERAMA beat me. Never mind. We're both right.

    As for the map, address thing, I'm considering going just for curiosity sake. I'm not sure it's worth the trek just to pick 5 minutes of footage I'll see anyway when I watch the main show (although you get a free USB stick out of it.)

    Brilliant idea though and we don't know what/who else we'll see!

    After all the reports about the low budget, I didn't expect the special effects to be all that impressive, but they're looking great.

    My favourite Back to Earth video to date.

    No comments on the chance to get to london to meet them and get a free USB drive with a five minute preview on it?

    Strangely I don't find the prospect of travelling 200 miles to get a USB with clips on it from a programme that's due to air two days later all that appealing.

    the effects do look good, but still Red Dwarf style quality!
    Spoilers




    The tentacle shown certainly looks old style effects. A good old prop.









    end spoilers

    ....the production values really do look *fantastic*

    Certainly the most impressive of any Red Dwarf era, either in retrospect or at the time, infact it's so good I've had to look twice. Twice. Watching Rimmers light-bee float down like that and the hologram initalisation effect, plus how good the greenscreen seems to have turned out has quashed any and all fears I had this might look "Low budget".

    I am in awe. I think this is going to be some epic fun. :-D

    When I first saw the trailer I watched it, literally, over four times.

    lucky nearby person. I hope the trailers good! and the fact you get to meet the cast, Minus Craig Charles. But man, these effects look so amazing, it'l be great. I am almost worried its so upscale if they skipped the budget for writing. I'm probably just being all worried as its quite a change to the show!

    I will be at work so unable to get to Berkley Square :-(

    Trailer looks superb. Especially the shot of |Rimmer disappearing, leaving his light bee spinning
