Rimmer (Chris Barrie), the holographic crewmember of the spaceship Red Dwarf, is teleported of the ship to the holographic spaceship Enlightnement, a sort of Ark for the (long extinct) humankind, where the human elite has sent their holographic images to preserve the best of what was human (even though as holograms).

There, for the first time in a few million years, Rimmer is able to taste, touch & even have sex, with (holographic) crewmember Nirvana Crane (Julie Horrocks), whom he falls in love with (& - inexplicably - she with him).

Soon Rimmer decides he wants to stay aboard the Enlightnement, which might not be quite as easy as it seems, as the Enlightnement already has a crew, & to prove himself worthy of the job, Rimmer has to fight an intellectual duel against one of the Enlightnement's crew ... quite a bugger since Rimmer is not all that great on an intellectual level ... so he persuades the Red Dwarf's robot Kryten (Robert Llewellyn) to upload the brain data of 2 of the Red Dwarf's most ingenious scientists into his brain ... which works perfectly in the beginning ... until Rimmer's brain rejects the other brains right during the intellectual duel.

Rimmer confesses to Nirvana that he has cheated to come aboard the Enlightenment & now is lost - ignorant to the fact that Nirvana is his opponent in the duel ... & out of love for Rimmer, she withdraws from the duel, & is thus turned off ...

Rimmer is proud to be a member of the Enlightenment ... until the captain (Matthew Marsh) tells him that Nirvana has withdrawn for his sake ... & out of love Rimmer decides to turn down his place on the Enlightenment so she can live (?) again.


Even though some attempts are made to put some irony into the proceedings, this is essentially a kitsch episode, with very little in terms of humour, & Chris Barrie, in this rare solo adventure is playing less of an asshole than usual ... but at the same time seems a little like a fish out of the water.
