**It's also possible that people are confused, and Lister really doesn't care what anyone calls him. In practice, a pantheist might be indistinguishable from an atheist - a God that exists everywhere and in everything (even in opposing forces) doesn't really need special prayers or rites - just simple respect for the creatures you meet and the objects you use. Which Lister does, for the most part (except maybe his socks.)

** The most likely scenario is that Holly simply switched McIntyre off not long after the accident. Even when he goes completely computer senile, Holly's not malicious and would certainly fail to see any logic in keeping a hologram around surrounded by the corpses of his workmates and with no other human company around than a man frozen in stasis.

* I long thought that ''Back to Earth'' was a pointless addition to the series, but then it dawned on me. The boys are asking for more life. They're asking for more ''episodes''! - {{Tropers/T-Jack}}

** It's more likely that the regulation is against unregistered pets that don't have a vaccination record and so forth.

** When Lister's body was repaired by the Nanobots to build him a replacement arm, it's possible they also rebuilt anything else that was missing so he may now have a ''third'' appendix.

* SFDebris raises an interesting point in his review of "Parallel Universe", that if the female version of Lister is supposed to be ''exactly'' the same as Male Lister, this implies that ''his'' reaction to the news if he accidentally got someone pregnant would be to claim it was ''their'' fault for not taking precautions.

** The way Legion describes the facilities of his station, the existence with him would have been a literal heaven on earth, as long as they lived. Lister, and the crew, choose a very, very, slim chance at returning to a humanity who would likely view them as something of a "missing link", if they ever even find them, over that.

** in the timeframe the ship was launched, faster than light travel is impossible, it's a Jupiter mining ship suggesting the human race hasn't left the solar system, and the intended trip is several years long just for that. The only reason it eventually exceeds light speed is that it has been accelerating for 3 million years. It is essentially a huge bussard ramjet, so fuel mass isn't an issue. Hardly enough to declare the theory of relativity incorrect in universe.

** The two crews are very similar, but not exactly the same, which is why Arlene's lust for her male counterpart is so completely unrequited. Not to mention the huge difference between Cat and his counterpart.
