Red DwarfLister signs himself and his friends up for Canary duty, an elite corps of prisoners who tackle the dangerous task of being the first members of Red Dwarf’s crew to visit inhospitable an unknown environments, determining whether or not it’s safe for more valuable and irreplaceable crew members (i.e. the automatic robotic mining equipment) to make planetfall. Their first assignment, to board a long-lost Space Corps vessel discovered in a nearby planet’s ocean, proves to Lister that he didn’t sign up for a singing group. The derelict ship’s only inhabitant is a computer called Cassandra with infallible powers of foresight. This otherwise useful power proves to be a massive pain in the ass when Cassandra predicts that at least one of them will soon die.
