The adventures of the last human being alive and his friends, stranded three million years into deep space on the mining ship Red Dwarf. Dave Lister is the last human being in the universe. A lowly technician on the mining ship Red Dwarf, he smuggles on board a cat and is sentenced to stay in stasis for the rest of the flight. However, he is awoken by the ship’s computer three million years later to find that the rest of the crew have been killed by a radiation leak. He is doomed to drift in space for the rest of eternity with only two companions: the hologram of his former crewmate, Rimmer, and a creature called Cat who has evolved from a pet he smuggled on board.
