Well, it's the first time I think I've read that the explanation of how the moon,Earth orbit relative to our sun as 'nitpicking'! I know it's somewhat inconvenient to muddy the wishful thinking of fanciful and abstract dreams with scientific facts; but that's the price of having humans who think backed up with data, and those who simply trawl the net looking for yet another wacko opinion to back up what they've already decided is true.

-Rimmer: So, Kryten, you've heard of this "Inquisitor"?
Kryten: Only as a myth; a dark fable; a horror tale, told across the flickering embers of a midnight fire, wherever hardened space dogs gather to drink fermented vegetable products and compete in tales of blood-chilling terror!
Rimmer: A simple "yes" would have sufficed.
