Officer Rimmer is the fourth episode in Series XI of Red Dwarf, first broadcast on Dave on October 13, 2016.

"Officer Rimmer" is the sixty-fifth Red Dwarf episode overall.


After a scandalous piece of good fortune, Rimmer saves the life of a bio-printed Space Corps Captain from the SS Nautilus and is promoted, fulfilling his life-long dream of becoming an Officer. He immediately opens an Officer's Club, which is out of bounds to the lower orders, and uses the bio-printer to fill it with versions of himself. [1]

  • When Kryten advises against Rimmer's plan to bio-print copies of himself, he states that history has shown that Rimmer interacting with himself is a very bad mix, a reference to either "RD: Me²", where Rimmer tricked Lister into activating a copy of his own holographic disk, or "RD: Rimmerworld", where he created an entire civilization by cloning himself, with both occasions seeing the new Rimmers turning on the original due to his own self-loathing and duplicitous nature.
    • Its more than likely that it is Rimmerworld Kryten is refering to, as the events of Me² happened in the last episode of series I, just one episode before Lister, Rimmer and Cat find Kryten on the Nova 5.

The Pac-Man spoof

  • The visual representation of the Rimmer Monster chasing and consuming the other Bio-Printed Rimmers through the Supervision Field of the ship resembles the video game Pac-Man, although it also bears some similarities to the original Castle Wolfenstein, especially in how it renders people.
