Red Dwarf

On board the mining ship Red Dwarf, the slovenly and lazy Third Technician Dave Lister is sentenced to eighteen months in stasis for smuggling an unquarantined cat on board. Three million years later, he is revived to discover he is the sole surviving crew member on board the ship following a nuclear disaster, and very probably the last human being alive in the universe. But he is not alone. Also on board is HOLLY, the senile computer powering the ship; an intangible hologrammatic version of Second Technician Arnold Rimmer, his pompous and cowardly immediate superior; The Cat, a humanoid evolved from Lister's pet cat; and Kryten, a neurotic android. And so this motley crew goes where no one has gone before, in search of adventure, women, and a really good vindaloo... Written by Scott Nisbet
