    In series X, which Rimmer is it? The one who became Ace in S7, or the resurrected one from S8?

    I'm not sure. Rimmer, at the end, begins to talk about how me saved the ship at the end of series 8, but I'd like to think that it's both - the Rimmer who left to become Ace may well have left his data back on Starbug, which was integrated with the series 8 Rimmer (we still don't know why that Rimmer died either, or why they booted up his hologram).

    Really?? That's a Weight lifted, I always hated the idea of the original Rimmer
    Becoming Ace, then we have a New shiny Rimmer in series 8? Terrible.

    Until it's stated otherwise in the show, I'm going with my pet theory that Series VIII Rimmer died and was brought back as a hologram, but the version of the Rimmer hologram in Red Dwarf's data banks obviously contained all of the experiences of the original Rimmer up to the point at which he left the ship. So the BTE/X Rimmer is an amalgamation of the two.

    Makes the most sense.
