Storyline

Red Dwarf receives a distress call which turns out to be a computer virus, shutting down all its systems and leading Rimmer to order evacuation. However he refuses to take the ship's machines with the crew and when the virus is removed they go on strike. Kryten breaks the strike and, supported by Lister, puts himself forward as the machines' president but Rimmer blackmails Cat into backing him as a rival. Now only the talking toaster can prevent Rimmer from succeeding in his mendacious bid for power. Written by don @ minifie-1
