Episode Summary

The gang come across the simulant ship they nearly destroyed in Gunmen of the Apocalypse and decide to board the ship in order to loot it for supplies despite the fact that it's in such bad shape that a loud sneeze would cause it to fall apart. They find a time and matter transporter on board and take it with them. One of the simulants is still alive and attacks them. Rimmer, always the brave, jumps in an escape pod but when it releases the ship begins to fall apart. The rest of the crew use the transporter to get back to Starbug and track the pod which is heading down to a planet. Unfortunately, the pod goes through a worm hole on the way down, causing Rimmer to shift back in time. When he reaches the planet's surface, Rimmer uses technology from the pod to try and create a woman in his image, but no matter how many times he tries all he can do is clone himself. When Starbug reaches the planet, 600 years have passed for Rimmer, and the Rimmer clones have taken over, banishing the original Rimmer to a dungeon. The others are captured and also thrown in the dungeon because they are 'different'. They find the original Rimmer and use the teleporter to escape but end up on Starbug 2 weeks in the future where they learn that something terrible has happened to Lister.....moreless
