Further details

'Ace Rimmer', Rimmer's better looking alternate being, arrives on Red Dwarf dying and tries to train Rimmer into being the next Ace. Millions of alternate Rimmers had done it before him, so he believed that even the arrogant, slimy Rimmer must be able to do it. Deciding to go ahead, Rimmer pretends to leave as Ace and jets off to save the universe. Unfortunately, he doesn't quite get the catchprase right: "Stoke me a clipper, I'll be back for Christmas!"
