The Pan-Dimensional Liquid Beast (last known residence, The Mogydon Cluster) could have been created in a Space Corps lab in said cluster and, like the Polymorph, abandoned.

Put of all the creatures encountered/mentioned on Red Dwarf, I think the only one that could possible have been an alien was that Pan-Dimentional Beast. I don't remember any mention that it was created. All other creatures are described as GELFs of some sort I think. Certainly, all aliens SEEN on screen are GELFs of some description :) (all genetically engineered :) )

Do we have to defy what an alien actually is......lets say it is a creature that has evolved totally of it's own creation (ie-not genetically engineered) and has never been to Earth..........is Cat an alien!!?

Evolved from a creature originally from earth - hmmmmm........tricky subject really.

If we recall from "Infinity Welcomes careful drivers", wasn't there a line or two which said somelike, "after many decades of space travel, explorers came to the conclusion that there was no intelligent life out there. Not even a clever plant. Not even a stupid plant" - something along those lines anyway :)

And anyway, that "Pan-dimentional liquid beast from the Mogydon cluster" was probably a fancy name for a bloody hot curry sauce Lister made which had some nasty after-effects - which affected the entire crew for a while :D

The SSS Esperanto was on a three-year mission to introduce oceanic life to potential S-3 planets. They had been playing God by accelerating the evolutionary process. Rimmer does indeed say at one point that "they got five million years of evolution in three solar years" (not counting the estimated three million years or so that the ship has been there). The Despair Squid evolved from the squids introduced to the planet by the Space Corps scientists working on the Esperanto.
