    I think its the original Rimmer. Although i would like to know how series 8 Rimmer died if this is the case.

    Rimmer was too good as Ace Rimmer because his weasel cunning was so extraordinary he would just stab the bad guy’s in the back instead of doing something stupidly heroic like attacking the Nazis from a parachute. He was summoned before some Heavenly Ace Council who ordered him to give up being Ace Rimmer for the sake of a little excitement in the universe. He went back to Red Dwarf, saved the day, swapped places with New Rimmer and realised he enjoyed being a goit. The End.

    As far as I’m concerned, for me it?s definitely our Rimmer, i.e I-VII Rimmer. I know that VIII Rimmer would have been around in Lister?s life about as much (not counting deep sleeps), if not longer, but when the development is off screen it isn?t the same. That was definitely our Rimmer right there, aside from the fact it blatantly is from a couple of his comments (Polymorph, despair squid) for the most part it just felt like it was him.

    No no, definitely our Rimmer.

    I don’t see these as mutually exclusive. Bear in mind that Rimmer is completely an electronic life-form, a simulation of a man. That means the affects of the Despair squid must be a simulation too. (I’m not sure how that could happen, but the affects of the squid’s venom are largely hallucinogenic.)

    By combining information from the two Rimmers into the new hologram, the squid immunity would be included too. It’s just more data.

    The whole thing is set in an alternate dimension where the events of Stoke never occurred.

    But then why would Kochanski have been on board to dump Lister in the first place?

    Just because Ace never arrived to ask Rimmer to take his place, it doesn’t stop Ouroborus occurring.

    9 years is a long time, what if Rimmer died with Red Dwarf and the gang (inc Kochanski) stole a Star Bug from the mirror universe and got back to ours using it and re-cover the nano-bots and ask them to make a new Red Dwarf, 3 years later Ace Rimmer returns after hundreds of failed efforts to save the universe, the end.

    the ” nine years later ” is a great way of just basicly letting u make our own minds up as to what happend in that time .. unless we told otherwise

    Which also explains why he is hardlight when they don’t have that technology.

    Smeg. I just noticed that.

    These are the quotes I meant to include:
