  • Trivia

    • We learn in 'Ouroboros' (Series 7 episode 3) that Lister is his own father, and Kochanski is his mother. However, if this is so, when Lister fixed time so he never joined the Space Corps that would mean he never met Kochanski, so his father never met his mother, so he should never have been born, and even if he was, his life should have taken a radically different path from that it did.
      ResponseThis is why Lister disappears. If he had've joined the Space corps. then he wouldve been on the ship with Rimmer and if he wasnt to join the Space corps then he wouldnt have gone back to earth again. It makes sense that he can go back and change time, making the future Lister go back to his previous self in the photos time. Try and get your head around that. its basically saying that you can go back and change time and that person you affected the life of is you, but if you change that life it would go back to where you start, which is the bar.
