In this new six episode season, commissioned by Dave, the old crew is back reeking havoc in space. Things kick off with the team’s mining ship still navigating unchartered deep space, with Kochanski’s disappearance still unresolved and playing heavily on their minds. They’re careering alone through space once again, with only the Snack Dispensers for company. Things soon pick up when Rimmer receives an SOS distress call from the Trojan, a doomed Space Corp ship trapped in a death dive with impact and destruction barely 15 hours away. Rimmer’s thrill at finding another ship soon gives way to horror as he discovers the Trojan is commanded by his all-conquering, younger brother, Howard. Rimmer is caught between an asteroid and a hard place. Meanwhile, at the same time, Kryten decides to install a new ship computer, the beautiful, but lethally logical, Pree.
