    KRYTEN: Ah, you have a touch of amnesia. That's quite common after such a long period in deep sleep.

    Nanarchy
    KOCHANSKI: The computer's brought us out of deep sleep early, it must have picked up something.

    Quoted in same episode:

    KRYTEN:
    I'll start preparing the suspended animation booths...

    :roll::roll:
    I.e. stating it's the same thing. So Abe wins. Your go, Abe. Well done, Abe!

    The script also refers to them as deep-sleep units in Psirens:
    Various consoles click into life as we pan around the room, and come to rest on two deep sleep units.

    The state the characters were in was "deep-sleep". The booths were "deep-sleep" units and "suspended animation" booths. But never "stasis". But Psirens does switch to the word "stasis" when refering to the state Lister was in in The End:

    KOCHANSKI: When you went into stasis, I broke into the sperm bank, Dave, back on Red Dwarf. You're a father. (Turns.) Here they come! (Cocks the gun and calls off.) Jim, Bexley, come to Mummy.

    Deep-sleep is clearly different to stasis because the hair and nails grow. Stasis Leak says:

    LISTER: Well, there's a spare stasis booth, isn't there? We could bring one person back if we could persuade them to go into suspended animation.

    Why would Lister say there's "a spare stasis booth" if there's actually dozens of spare stasis booths on all the Starbugs? Clearly the booths on Starbugs are different. "Suspended animation" is obviously a catch-all term for stasis and deep-sleep, which are different types of suspended animation.

    Your question asked:
    Does "used a stasis" mean "gone into the state of stasis" or does it mean "used a stasis booth for anything"?
    Does "the main four crew" mean all four, or any one of the four?

    So we're not counting stasis leak? Shirley that's using a stasis? Whatever on earth that garbaled thrase means.

    Hey, that's the one that I thought I was missing. That's definitely using a stasis.

    It's using the stasis-field that was leaking from the booth. I suppose that's "using a stasis". Also depends if the question means all four or just any of the four, because Stasis Leak was sans Kryten.

    No. They walked through a leak. Hence why I said Abe was right before Billy the II turned up!

    Why are you getting involved in something that doesn't concern you?

    Take some advice from old man @Bluey and mind your own business

    Two problems...

    One; that's not a question it's an instruction.

    Two; it's @Abe go, not yours.

    As per Billy Salt's (aka your twin) original rules you are now disqualified!!! :sulk:

    Ugh, fine, mom, I'll make a question.

    In how many episodes does Cat wear clothing?
