I think it is red. Discuss.
The side we see is Red, the rest is bright yellow! That's why they have to spend so long painting it, to keep the colour bright.
It wants you to think it's red, it's actually very very very dark pink.
According to my Dulux App it's not red, it's "Ruby Fountain".
The interesting thing is, Rob and Doug never intended the ship to be coloured red.
Stay away from her. She's trouble. I still have the scars.
I think it is mostly Ocean grey....or maybe Military Grey. It's so hard to say for sure....
I think it's got an asteroid wedged into it
Sometimes it does....
Its not a color. It's actually an invisible paint. The inside of the ship is red. and they have a midget living in it. Hence the name Red Dwarf
Siamese pink with heliotrope spots.
Yes, it's mentioned somewhere on Bodysnatcher. Although the ship is called Red Dwarf, they didn't actually intend it to be coloured red.
I concur, in one of the documentaries in bodysnatcher, possibly the one on the series I, Rob and Doug definintly said they never imagined Red Dwarf to be red. If I remember rightly, it was the model maker's assumption.
I wonder then what colour that makes the white giant?
Also is that supposed to be an asteroid or a small moon?
Does it really matter either way? Nah..guess not...
It is my understanding (as ever, from where this came, I forget) that the ship was built around an asteroid which was used for the journey to the target mining planet/moon/asteroid. The asteroid was used to test mining equipment and to maximise profit, even for the journey to and from the mining planet/moon/asteroid....
....something like that. Although, I'm sure I also heard that the asteroid is supposed to be from an earlier collision with the ship and just easier to leave it in place.
I believe that was the explanation given in the book except I think it was a moon not an asteroid, but I suppose they're essentially the same thing. Asteroids basically become moons if they end up orbitting a planet, don't they? (Cue a scientific type to correct me...)
With the design of the pencil ship the explanation was that those were actually asteroids purposefully attached to the ship in ak ind of docking area that were being mined en-route as it were. Since there were two on that version it makes sense I suppose as it's unlikely 2 asteroids would collide at once let alone so neatly spaced!
The exact, scientific definition of 'moon' says that it must be occupied by clangers.
I'm not certain there is really a moon apart from THE Moon. Scientifically, I think other bodies orbiting planets are just satellites. Phobos and Deimos were probably asteroids.
.....or Soup Dragons. Lets not forget them...
Heh. I had to look that up to get the reference.
