New this month Continuity mistake: When Rimmer falls asleep whilst Lister is doing the jigsaw, there is a whisky bottle on the table. Later in the episode, when being viewed on the black box, the whiskey bottle is no longer on the table. Lister could not have thrown it away since he left the table to the Hologram Simulation Suite at the end of the scene.

New this month Continuity mistake: When Rimmer is talking to Lister before the exam and says they are friends, Lister replies "When?" Lister has a can of beer on the bunk, with the label facing the camera. Two shots after, the label is suddenly facing away from the camera. A couple of shots after that, the label is suddenly facing the camera again.
New this month Continuity mistake: When the Cat is eating the food set out by Lister, there is a cloth on the table. When Lister is asking where the other kitties are, the cloth is shown near the centre of the table. Rimmer then says he wants it off the ship, and the cloth is suddenly further to the right of the table.
New this month Continuity mistake: When Rimmer shows Lister the luck virus and sexual magnetism virus, there is less than half of the liquid shown in the test tube for the sexual magnetism, but when Rimmer is about to go to Hollister's dinner later on, there is more liquid in the test tube. There was also only one test tube of sexual magnetism for Rimmer to use.

New this month Continuity mistake: After the Cat has performed his dance routine, he begins to smoke a cigar and puts it down. The shot cuts to the ground controller, but when the shot cuts back to the Cat, the cigar is back in his mouth and has already been smoked.
New this month Continuity mistake: When Kryten notices the photo of the bike in the countryside is moving, the peg attached to it is near the middle, along the top, but in the shot from behind, the peg is much closer to the right. The same goes for the photo of Kryten's birthday party.
New this month Continuity mistake: When Kryten is piloting Starbug and gently "eases forwards", there is a shot shown from behind Starbug where it is driving out of the cargo bay to the exit, and it is shown a couple feet off the ground. When Starbug exits Red Dwarf in the next shot, Starbug is suddenly much higher above the ground.
New this month Continuity mistake: Rimmer wears a hat with an antenna on the right hand side when on Starbug, and after arriving on Earth, but when he and Kryten are walking through the streets later on, the antenna is now on the left side of his hat, and is far more extended.

New this month Continuity mistake: In the hotel room, when future Lister is telling Lister he doesn't look pleased to see him, the two Listers are standing directly in front of each other, but from another angle, future Lister is standing around 90° rotated from before, and a few steps to the right of Lister.
New this month Continuity mistake: When Holly interrupts Rimmer learning Esperanto saying "The menu looks interesting", he appears on the TV screen, with his chin blocked by the edge of the frame. The shot then cuts to a view of the screen, and his entire face is suddenly fully in the frame.
Continuity mistake: In George's memorial service, the extras are totally different in the shots from George's point of view to the shots from the back of the room. Look for the woman with brunette hair and orange overalls - she's there in the forward shots but missing in the reverses. The chairs, tables, props, costumes and character placements are all completely discontinuous.
Visible crew/equipment: When the Red Dwarf crew are talking about who Legion is (after Lister has poured his bucksfizz), Kryten then says, "Could our very presence here have inadvertently awoken him?" As he says this, at the left side of the screen the end of a camera lens pulls away.
Other mistake: At the start of the episode, there is a spoof Star Wars-type caption, which spools up the screen very quickly. Too quickly to be read, in fact... which may explain why few people have noticed that the last line of the caption, "And now the Saga Continuums...", is written twice.
Other mistake: Kryten places Rimmer's light bee on the floor, then begins the process of reinitialising him. As the process finishes and Rimmer looks at Lister (who looks away), the light bee, which should be hovering within his torso projecting his image, is still visible on the floor between his feet.
Continuity mistake: When the ducts are being backwashed, Lister's dreadlocks are on his right shoulder. But when the shot changes and he says "I hate this. I really hate this.", his locks are on his left shoulder. Then the shot changes again and they're back on his right shoulder.
Revealing mistake: In the captain's office, the words 'Medical bay' have been painted on the wall. This was near the end of the episode and can be seen over Rimmer's shoulder while they are talking in the drive room. The set was obviously doubled with the medical bay, as the captain's office is not used in this episode.
Continuity mistake: Kryten removes the polymorph underpants and throws them under the covers of Lister's bed. When he checks the bed and pulls out a snake the pants are now on top of the covers (even though he says they're gone) and the covers themselves are now arranged differently.
Continuity mistake: In the scene on the Canaries' transport, where they first try to convince Kryten to record the women showering, Kochanski speaks the first line in the scene, but when the shot changes to the wide shot, she isn't there anymore. (Confirmed on the DVD commentary).
00:05:55 - 00:07:20
Continuity mistake: When the Nazi commander throws the crocodile at Ace, the yellow curtain is behind ace as he falls. In the next shot, the yellow curtain is in front of him. It is clear he did not fall through the curtain as it does not move as he hits the floor.
