About This Quiz

Ever since it premiered in 1988, "Red Dwarf" has been forcing audiences to re-evaluate how they view the science fiction genre. When it began, the BBC had a microscopic budget to invest in sets and special effects, so despite being hard sci-fi, "Red Dwarf" took a tack in the direction of character rather than outer plot. This meant that episodes might deal with the discovery of a rift in space-time or the Red Dwarf (the titular vessel of the show) coming upon a derelict spacecraft or the like, but the story was always about the relationship dynamic between the show's protagonists.

As to the characters, they were as off the wall as any television character from any genre. At the center of the story was Dave Lister, a relatable if somewhat slovenly everyman who, through trying to get a free ride back to Earth, found himself awakening from a state of suspended animation aboard the Red Dwarf, millions of years after going to sleep and long since the disappearance of the human race. Surrounding him was a cast of characters as bizarre as the circumstances Lister called his life, including a highly evolved pet, a holographic pedant and a robot who lived to make all things clean. Given these and other "Red Dwarf" characters, which one are you? Answer some questions, and we will tell you!
