What if Monty Python made a Star Trek parody ? It's three million years in the future, and an equal distant in light years away from the Earth. David Lister, put in stasis (time freeze) as punishment for bring an animal (his pet cat) onboard ship and violating quarantine, awakens to find his crewmates dead of an atomic explosion. His only companions are The Cat (who's race evolved from Lister's cat) and Rimmer (his boss and roommate, and the biggest smeghead in the galaxy). Later they pick up the mechanoid Kryten and a version of Dave's girlfriend from a parallel universe. THE VESSEL: The Jupiter Mining Corporation Vessel: RED DWARF THE CREW: David Lister= The last Human (barely) alive. Dave is an eternal optimist and a giant slob. His goals in life include eating lots of curry, drinking lots of lager and to somehow get reunited with the woman of his dreams and "to have her bounce up and down on him, in that way humans find strangely pleasing" (according to Kryten) Arnold Rimmer= A hologramatic simulation of Dave's roommate. The textbook serial killer/facist dictator/ complete loser. Lost his virginity at age 30 with a unconscious woman. He spent 12 minutes with her (including the time it took to eat the pizza). The Cat= A Felis Sapiens (evloved from cats as humans evolved from the apes). Dave's pet cat Frankenstein is his ancestor The most well groomed entity in seven universes. Possibly the laziest and most vain as well. Kryten= A mechanoid with a face like Herman Munster's stunt double. Has an encyclopedic knowledge of the Space Corps. Directives, but only seems to use them against Rimmer, who he refers to as "SMeeee..heeee" Holly= The Ships computer. Has an IQ of 6000 (the equal of 12,000 P.E. teachers) Known for his chipper attitude, and his love of Agatha Christie novels and a good practical joke. Kristine Kochanski=The love of Dave's life, alive again thanks to a trip to a parallel universe. She loves Dave too, albeit it another version of Dave from that same parallel universe.(Who isn't an insensitive slob). Confused? Click Here to go to an FAQ
