By the mid-to-late 22nd century, Europa had been colonised by the Space Corps like the other Jovian moons. Along with Io, Callisto and Ganymede, Europa was a central hub of the Jupiter Mining Corporation. The JMC mining spaceship Red Dwarf occasionally stopped off here during its rounds.
The Red Dwarf television series showed that Ace Rimmer's dimension-jumping ship, Wildfire, was test-piloted from Mimas, a moon of Saturn. (Dimension Jump) However the Red Dwarf novel Backwards reveals that Wildfire was constructed at a base on Europa.
