Red Dwarf

Red Dwarf takes place on the Jupiter Mining Corporation ship Red Dwarf, which is 6 miles (9.7 km) long, 5 miles (8.0 km) tall, and 4 miles (6.4 km) wide. An on-board radiation leak kills everyone except for low-ranking technician Dave Lister, who was in suspended animation at the time of the leak, and his pregnant cat, Frankenstein, who was safely sealed in the ships cargo hold. Following the accident, Red Dwarf's computer Holly keeps Lister in stasis until the background radiation dies down - a process that takes three million years. Lister therefore emerges as the last human being in the universe - but not alone on-board the ship. His former bunkmate and immediate superior Arnold Judas Rimmer is resurrected by Holly as a hologram to keep Lister sane. At the same time, a creature known only as Cat is the last member on board of Felis sapiens, a race of humanoid felines that evolved in the ship's hold from Lister's cat, Frankenstein, and her kittens during the 3 million years that Lister was in stasis.
