Three million years ago, David Lister was put in suspended animation for smuggling his pregnant cat aboard the mining ship Red Dwarf. While Lister remained in stasis, a radiation leak killed the crew - but not his cat. Safely sealed in the hold, his cat's litter bred, evolving over millions of years into humanoid form. They now roam deep space in a fleet of their own. In this special, the posse meet three of these cats who worship Lister as their God. Lister vows to help them flee from Rodon, a ruthless feral cat and self-declared Cat King.
