* FantasticRacism: In the first book, it's stated that holograms are discriminated against and treated as second class citizens because they are seen by the living as a reminder of their own mortality. Holograms often hold equal rights marches. Given the power and computer run time requirements, only the mega rich and mission critical Space Corps personnel are resurrected as holograms. Rimmer had once thrown a stone at one of these marches as a child and one of his early thoughts after his death is that he's now a "dirty deadie".

* CompensatingForSomething: Rimmer's fantasy has him aquire new bodies with increasingly [[GagPenis large penises]] to make up for his own inadequacies in reality. He notes, to his horror, at one point that the insanely large limousine he has implies this about him as well, whereas Lister's choice of an [[TheAllegedCar Alleged Car]] is the opposite way around.

* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: Infinity and BTL both tend towards cynicism. The chapter on the genesis of the GELFs in BTL really plumbs the depths of cynicism when it puts forward the premise that human beings are fundamentally broken because they're genetically predisposed to disagree with each other, due to the genetic flaw causing all human beings to assume all other human beings are mad. The only time they can agree with each other is when they are at war with each other. When a team of geneticists discover this flaw in human DNA they're so excited that they decide to go out for a meal to celebrate... only they couldn't agree on what kind of meal to go out for, fell to squabbling and never published their results (with which nobody would have agreed anyway).
