Quest 5 Story
getting too old for this hero stuff". Roger always wanted to
be a StarCon captain, so why not trying to fulfill that dream at
the StarCon Academy? The story opens with Roger desperately trying
to pass the StarCon Aptitude Test, in hopes of becoming a starship
captain. And of course our clever Space Cadet never studied for
the test. He cheats, but passes the test none the less. A good thing
that Proctormatic 9000 Anticheat droid never saw anything. Thus
Roger becomes captain of his own ship, and not just a glamorous
StarShip, but an interstellar Garbage Scow! Figures.....
first orders are simple; picking up trash at three planets inside
the G4 quadrant. The first two planets aren't any trouble. Heck,
he even picks up a new pet along the way, which he names Spike.
Life is not bad after all, ey Roger? There must be an angel sitting
on one of the Garbage Scow's wingtips. Too bad that angel will soon
fly away, leaving Roger and his crew exposed to the Intergalactic
Menace that has just appeared on the horizon.
I need to mention Roger's mail fraud back in Space Quest 2? Well
nobody, except Roger of course, forgot about that. Roger has to
face the deadly WD-40, a DeathStalker Mark VI Annihilator android
from the planet Oakhurst IV. Man, looks like these Gippazoid company's
annihilators are just like your favorite Xenon Gold Card: everywhere
you are! Now it's time to use your infamous dumb luck, Roger...
not all, after picking up a rather strange transmission signal between
two ships, things are really getting nasty.... Does Roger what it
takes to save the universe again?
