    I’m a big fan of in universe stuff in my entertainment media, particularly when the author/writer/developer goes through the trouble of creating all the minutia of everyday life, for example, brands.

    The Fallout games are a good example of this, you have RobCo, General Atomics and Vault-Tec for your technology stuff, Nuka-Cola for your beverages and Red Rocket for your fuel needs.

    So I was thinking about Red Dwarf brands, what do we have? A lot seem to be JMC owned, Leopard Lager, Glen Tokyo whiskey etc, non-JMC wise there’s only really Crapola Inc. and Divadroid International mentioned, and I suppose in this universe Sinclair and NORWEB exist.

    In the books there are a couple more, Glen Fujiyama whiskey (probably JMC), Coca-Cola exists if memory serves too.

    And then there’s production stuff, like Sony CRT’s being used in the driveroom, and Martin Baker ejector seats being used in Starbug which I imagine aren’t canon.

    Are there any more companies or brands in Red Dwarf lore? Who makes Crispies? Who’s had a mention?

    Does anyone care? :D

    Yep, one of my favourite bits of the novels is the Nova 5’s mission to make a star go supernova to form part of ‘COKE ADDS LIFE’.

    Pot Noodle, even if the one they eat from isn’t actually a Pot Noodle.
    Crispie bar is an interesting one, as the one seen on screen is actually a Toffee Crisp, isn’t it?
    Bonjella Gum Ointment.

    What’s the logo on the Emohawk when it’s a can of beans? Is it Beanz? It’s a rip off of Heinz, anywho…

    You’d probably love these books then. Pretty much lists every person/place/thing/ship/disease/etc. in the entirety of Red Dwarf: http://hassleinbooks.com/pages/book_redDwarf.php

    It’s true, they’re very useful – I used my copies to prop up a microphone during last week’s DwarfCast.

    I’m planning to actually read them cover to cover one day.
