The Geap is a comic story published in Red Dwarf Smegazine issue 6.
The crew of Red Dwarf find an escape pod containing a Genetically Engineered Adaptable Pet, or Geap. The properties of the Geap mean that any human will do anything to protect it, even kill. When Cat steals the Geap for his dinner, Lister grabs a Bazookoid and goes after him. Kryten manages to persuade Lister to hand over the Geap, and sends it away from Red Dwarf in its escape pod again.
