Quest 2 Story
As you will recall
in our last chapter, Roger had just foiled the Sariens fiendish
plot to rule the galaxy by using the Star Generator as their weapon
of destruction. He became a hero by saving countless lives and returning
the Star Generator technology into safe hands. His efforts were
awarded with the coveted Golden Mop, as a token of eternal gratitude.
Our should/would/could be brave janitor became an instant celebrity.
Soon, Roger was to be surrounded with media attention. He was guest
at the Dave Letterdroid Show and playing in those new Kellogz NucleoCorn

mess in a shuttle that just arrived. When entering the shuttle,
Roger is being knocked unconscious by two ugly goons who were waiting
for him. After a while, he wakes up to find himself tied up, and
facing the mighty Sludge Vohaul (the alien more hideous than your
Aunt Hildegard)! As the Sariens' commander, Vohaul is a little bit
pissed at Roger for ruining his Sarien Operation. And now the mad
scientist has devised a new plan to make Xenon pay! Ensuring Roger
will not interfere again, he is sent to the Labion labor mines,
to enjoy many painful hours of labor...
