Red Dwarf

Psirens - S6-E1

Question: How exactly did the crew 'lose' Red Dwarf?

Socks1000

Chosen answer: The details are never made particularly clear, except that the ship was, at some unspecified point, stolen by Kryten's rogue nanobots while the crew were away from the ship on Starbug. A short online comic produced by the BBC suggests that this happened directly after the events of the fifth series' final episode "Back to Reality", that the crew returned from their encounter with the despair squid to find Red Dwarf missing, although events in the recent revival, "Back to Earth" appear to contradict that.

Question: What exactly were the circumstances behind Lister being put into a suspended animation at the beginning of the episode?

Socks1000

Chosen answer: Starbug took 200 years to catch up with Red Dwarf, so Lister and Cat went into suspended animation while Kryten piloted Starbug after the ship.

Question: If the nanobots made Red Dwarf microscopic, why do they need to go around the asteroid field?

Chosen answer: Everything's relative: microscopic asteroid particles would now be just as much a threat as their larger counterparts.

Mistakes

Kryten tells everyone that the matter paddle transmits matter in digital form from one place to another at the speed of light - he is very clear on this point. He then locates Waxworld, which is 200,000 light years away. Okay - so when they use the matter paddle to transmit themselves to Waxworld, why doesn't it take them 200,000 years to get there?
