is a SOS distress call from the mining ship Red Dwarf. The crew are dead,
killed by a radiation leak, the only survivors were Dave Lister who was
in suspended animation during the disaster and his pregnant cat who was
safely sealed in the hold. Revived 3 million years later, Lister's only
companions are a life form who evolved from his cat and Arnold Rimmer a
hologram simulation of one of the dead crew. There was enough food to last
30,000 years but only one After Eight mint and everyone was too polite
to take it.
