Dimwitted third-class space ship technician Dave Lister is dumbstruck to find that, after what was supposed to be an 18-month punishment in stasis (suspended animation), he has woken up some 3 million years later, a radiation leak having long killed his Red Dwarf colleagues and left him as the last human being.
First broadcast: Monday 22nd February 1988
As the ship accelerates toward light speed in the readiness for the 3,000,000 year journey back in the other direction, toward Earth, peculiar things start happening. How can Cat be in two places at once? Holly's got some explaining to do - about something he terms 'future echoes'.
First broadcast: Monday 29th February 1988
Sickened to the last by Rimmer's toe-curlingly officious, petty nature - particularly galling considering he's the only actual human alive - Lister resolves to improve his standing on the ship and become the superior crew member.

Whilst Rimmer preoccupies himself with an unidentified object that Holly has tracked and brought aboard the ship, Lister is in equal measure distraught and amazed to discover that owing to a few horrible misunderstandings all those millennia ago, he is the cat god Cloister.
First broadcast: Monday 14th March 1988
Venturing up to the Officer's Deck to feel closer to Kochanski, Lister is unaware that Rimmer has not yet de-contaminated the area, and catches a particularly virulent, 3-million-year-evolved strain of pneumonia. It's not long before he's hallucinating; and the hallucinations take on solid, physical form!
