Things go from bad to worse as Lister, Kryten, Cat and Kochanski manage to get to a Blue Midget shuttle and escape – but in reality, they’re in an AR machine under the watchful eye of Captain Hollister and the “new” Red Dwarf’s Holly. But by monitoring their actions in artificial reality, Hollister does discover that their story about nanobots must be true – but they’re also desperate enough to steal a shuttle and leave on their own. Proving that the only consistent thing is their luck, Lister, Rimmer and the others are sentenced to serve time in Red Dwarf’s top-secret, well-populated prison floor.
Guest Cast: Mac McDonald (Captain Hollister), Graham McTavish (Ackerman), Yasmin Bannerman (First ground controller), Jeillo Lennards (Second ground controller), Karl Glenn Stimpson (MP Thornton)
