The adventures of the last human alive and his friends, stranded three million years into deep space on the mining ship Red Dwarf.
Rimmer leaving to become Ace Rimmer in Red Dwarf: Stoke Me a Clipper (1997) oddly reflected on Rob Grant's departure from the sitcom as he had decided to move on to other projects. Series 7 was the first season to be co-written by Rob Grant.
In the intro sequence of Series 1 and 2, a man in a spacesuit (Lister) is seen painting the exterior of Red Dwarf and the camera pulls back to reveal the Red Dwarf spaceship and we see Red Dwarf flying towards the black void of space and Series 3 - onwards, a montage of the episodes from each season is seen during the intro sequence.
There is an alternate ending for episode 6.6: "Out Of Time". The original version shows the crew sitting around the main table celebrating their victory over destroying their future selves. They toast to it with celebratory margaritas. They instantly spit it all out and Lister says, with disgust "These aren't margaritas, that's Urine Recycle!" This ending was later changed to the present one as the writers felt they couldn't go anywhere without a cliffhanger.
