Further details

Now that Red Dwarf has been recreated by the Nanobots, the original crew have all been reinstated, including Rimmer. This isn't particularly good news for Lister, especially seeing as he still has to share quarters with him. His bad luck doesn't end there, unfortunately, as he and his fellow Dwarfers are put on trial for stealing Starbug and flying it! Lister strikes up a deal with Rimmer that he can help him find secret information to increase his chances of becoming an officer, if Rimmer helps him escape.
