On 23rd century earth, the best pilot of them all, Ace Rimmer (Chris Barrie), tests a spaceship able to jump dimensions - meaning he can enter different realities where, because of alternate decisions, things took a different turn - & meet other versions of himself. His first excursion takes him  3 million years into the future, where he crashes into the shuttle of the Red Dwarf, aboard the crew - the last human Lister (Craig Charles), the after-death hologram Rimmer (Chris Barrie), the robot Kryten (Robert Llewellyn), the cat evolved to human form Cat (Danny John-Jules) & the halfwit computer Holly (Hatty Hayridge). HAving caused their accident, Ace decides to help them, & with the help of Lister, renders the shuttle operational again. But Ace is deeply disappointed by this dimension's Rimmer, who turns out to be an incompetent idiot, while Rimmer grows jealous of Ace, him having gotten all the lucky breaks he didn't. But, as it turns out, Ace was held back in school for a year due to bad marks - that taught him to fight his way through life - while Rimmer wasn't, which caused their lives to take totally different turns.

In the end, Ace decides to leave though, & would never meet another version of himself equally sad though as the one of this dimension ...

 

The story of this episode is of one piece, which is more than could be said about most of the other season 4-episodes, this however is no excuse for the story to be totally unfunny, & even though it is clearly centered on characters keeps them totally one-dimensional: Ace is portrayed as an annoying do-gooder in Top Gun-style with not a single flaw, Rimmer is reduced to pure jealousy of his other self, Lister, who was originally created as the sloppy careless guy is shown as an admirer of Ace (whom he would have loathed even more than Rimmer in his original treatment) & even does some heroic engine-repairing, while the rest of the cast is left with little to do. Just another disappointing episode in a disappointing season.
