The original Rimmer now lives in Africa.
This is incredible feeling, talking with Mr. Rimmer. Can I ask how were Grant&Naylor at school (not grades, but behavior)?
Sorry if I'm annoying with these questions, but this is very interesting for me.
@Rimmer Chets Is this for real or are you pranking us?
Why did you hyperlink the words "creators", "surname" and "prefect" to their respective wikipedia articles?
That's a quote from Wikipedia that he copied/pasted into his post, before adding his own comment. The hyperlinks are in the source.
I smell a big ole "p" coming on ..............
Well I'M certainly not cleaning it up!
Hologram Rimmer was just a computer simulation remember, he's an AI, so while 1-7 Rimmer was one copy that became independent, this new Rimmer is just another exact copy of the Rimmer that left. That way, the original Rimmer hologram gets his happy hero ending and became Ace, and is still trekking the multiverse, while this new Rimmer isn't a tragic failure who couldn't cut it as Ace and wasn't made to return to the crew with his tail between his legs. Current Rimmer is just a duplicate of the Rimmer that left, same experiences, same personality, same character arc of original Holo Rimmer, but the only difference is that he never left to be Ace and has no memory of the time Ace returned to recruit the other Rimmer, but he also has the memory of what happened to Nano-Rimmer during Series 8 plugged into his memory. He's a hologram, as we know from Thanks For The Memory he can be programmed to have whatever memories are available in the hologram projection suite.
I like it this way, and I think Lister would try to make it this way, to be kind to Rimmer and keep all his experiences with him intact with a custom hologram, so I'm sticking with it. He's a copy, but he is still classic Rimmer. He's whatever Lister needs him to be.
This is my preferred interpretation.
Pretty good idea! I genuinely never thought of that.
