This is an incredibly slight and inconsequential niggle of mine, but I wanted to whinge about the inconsistent Spae Corps uniforms in Red Dwarf's history. I understand there are numerous perfectly good reasons, but it just annoys me how there appear to be anywhere up to 9 different uniforms on Red Dwarf. Does this annoy anyone else, or have you any clever excuses for it? In series 1, 2 and 8 we see beige/grey trousers, shirt and tie for everyone from 2nd tech to Captain. Okay, fair enough. Dull, but you know, the 80's. There are also those white uniforms for Admirals. Again, no problem. In series 2 the technicians are also seen in boiler suits of various colours. That's easy enough to excuse - they had to do some work which would have damaged their beige shirts and ties. But then in series 3 and 4 we see Rimmer's Captain Emerald costume, complete with some kind of badge and a little hat. And a vest with braces underneath. Who on board was supposed to wear these, if not the Captain? And surely Rimmer is underqualified for such a spiffy outift. We also see this same outfit in Holoship, worn by another RD crewman, so we know this is official RD gear. And of course in series 5 Rimmer switches to a red variant. Again, we see another crewman dressed in it in Holoship, so we know it's official. There are two colours to this? Why, and how on Earth does it fit with the grey/beige tie and shirt combo? And also you can optionally replace the tunic with a quilted, shiny sweater? WHY! Arrrgh my life is so empty that I care about this! In series 6 Rimmer changes both of the red outfits to blue, and this is very easily explained by the hard light switch. One would assume that no-one onboard Red Dwarf ever wore blue tunics or sweaters, but rather Rimmer (or Legion) is using the colour to denote light status. No problem, thank you 6 for changing his colour without over-complicating things. But then in the flashbacks to series 7.... we see Rimmer and Kochanski BOTH in blue shirt-suits with white piping..... WHAT NO WHY And then Red Dwarf X introduces the Trojan uniforms, worn on at least two Space Corps ships. So officers, and sims, here have an all new one. So one must assume that the corridors of Red Dwarf, before the accident, would have looked quite extraordinary. Everyone from second technician to Captain wore a beige/grey shirt, pants and tie (long or short sleeves depending on fashion), unless it was that brief period when they played around with blue shirt suits and then discarded them apparently, except for some officers (and presumably lower crewmn if they felt like it) who wore bright green or red tunics and spaceman caps with insignia, or shiny quilted sweaters if they preferred, or Trojan uniforms if they were on the really fancy ships and of any rank, unless they were an Admiral in which case it was a white uniform dress suit, unless they were doing manual labour in which case they wore a yellow or blue jumpsuit, unless they were Lister in which case it was a Zero-Gee t-shirt. ... Objection. I want an apology.
