Further details

The Dwarfers are still on the run from Pete the dinosaur. He's swallowed Bob the scutter who had the time wand, so there's no way of turning him back into a sparrow. Meanwhile, the rest of the frozen crew are now moving again and have found out about the time wand and dinosaur. Hollister sends Rimmer and Lister back down to the cargo bay to try and turn the dinosaur back into a sparrow. They manage to, but Rimmer tells Lister to destroy it. Not a good move seeing as the dinosaur had laid an egg and it's about to hatch!
