Here is my synopsis for Tikka To Ride (it was great to write another one of these. They are always fun to put together :D ).

Red Dwarf is in a crisis. The crew has survived the battle with their future selves but their curry supplies have been destroyed. Lister is devastated. He suggests that they use the time drive to go into the past and order more curries. Kryten is against it; he is worried their actions will change the future.

While Kryten is attached to the ship’s computer, Lister replaces him with spare head two. He agrees to the plan and for Lister to disable his guilt chip. Kryten tells the crew that it would be safe to travel to the past. He sets the time drive to take them to a tandoori restaurant but instead Lister, Kryten, the Cat and Rimmer land in a Dallas book depositary in 1963. Upon landing, Lister knocks Lee Harvey Oswald out of a window. Oswald dies and John F Kennedy is no longer assassinated. To avoid being arrested for Oswald’s murder they escape three years into the future.

They find that Dallas is deserted. JFK has been impeached and arrested. The new president is controlled by the mafia and has allowed a soviet nuclear base to be built off the US mainland. In the future Russia has won the space race and Starbug no longer exists.

The crew go back to 1963. They send Oswald up to the 6th floor so he can shoot JFK and avoid their other selves. On this higher floor Oswald misses. Lister realises the assassination would work if there was a second gunman behind the grassy knoll. They go forward in time to when JFK is being sent to prison. Lister convinces him to help. JFK becomes the second gunman and his reputation is restored in history.

Here's my attempt at new synopsis for "Stoke me a Clipper"

Ace Rimmer, Rimmer's better looking heroic alternate being, from Dimension Jump and Emohawk: Polymorph II makes a rescue attempt on the princess Bonjela. Although he succeeds in rescuing her, Ace takes a fatal bullet hit. Meanwhile on Starbug, Lister is tired of taking cold showers, nearly using all the water supplies in the process, so he goes into the artificial reality machine with his book of cheats. He challenges the King's best knight so he can win the honour of spending a day and a night with the Queen of Camelot. Using his cheat codes he defeats the knight, claims his prize and with one last cheat the Queen's chastity belt falls freely to the ground.

Ace transports into Starbug's dimension and reveals that he is dying and wants Rimmer to replace him as Ace. He also tells Rimmer of the Ace secret — the fact that alternate versions of Rimmer from countless dimensions have all taken the reins to be Ace. Now Ace must train Rimmer to succeed him and keep the legend going. After encouragement from Lister, Rimmer decides to accept the offer and begins his training. With the help of Lister, Cat and Kryten, Rimmer succeeds with his training and when Ace dies, he dons Ace's outfit and says his goodbye to the crew before leaving Starbug with the memorable quote "Stoke me a clipper, I'll be back for Christmas".
