Storyline

Roger Wilco, the brave interstellar janitor who has already saved the universe from many great dangers, is now in a very embarrassing position. His commanders show no respect for his courageous actions. Instead, he is being accused of all kinds of violations against the galactic law, is deprived of all the honors he got, and as a token of mercy, is allowed to return to his old job - cleaning closets... But those unfortunate events are just the beginning of much bigger troubles Roger will get into. Once again, the future of galaxy depends on him! Space Quest 6 revolves around a plot from Sharpei, an elderly widow of a StarCon Admiral to live on forever. Her plot involved the stealing of a younger body and placing her consciousness into it. Roger Wilco is dragged into this plot against his will as the body to be used, but he is rescued at the last second by his friend and former love interest Stellar Santiago. In rescuing Roger, Stellar is presumably killed in an explosion, but in ... Written by doctoracula-32567

Trivia

When Roger inserts the datacard into the ComPost at Sickbay, the infamous "Error 47" mostly occurs and the game crashes, much to the annoyance of the players. It can be fixed by using slowing programs like Moslo (for playing in DOS mode) or Turbo (for playing in Windows mode). See more »

Goofs

Before playing the arcade game "Stooge Fighter 3", Djurkwhad challenges Roger: "If you win, I'll give you 300 buckazoids. However, if I win, you're mine to do as I see fit". Roger may lose the game repeatedly while he does not have yet the cheat code, but Djurkwhad will let him walk away. See more »

Quotes

Narrator: Upon grabbing the ID card, you notice the picture on it is of a rather homely-looking alien type. Guess everyone can't be as fortunate as you.

Not the Best of the Series
14 November 2006 | by david_hardySee all my reviews

In the past games had many elements that tried to separate them from simple entertainment to actual works to be appreciated. User manuals gave detailed system information and added value to a game besides the now mundane control schematics. One unique thing about this game was the demo. It was not the simple first couple of levels but a truly separate version of the game that you would never see in the "full" game. Roger Wilco is the goofy hero with plenty of pop culture references to satisfy the snark is all of us. While not the dry British humor that is "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" it is a series that needs more recognition. If you only try two games in this series check out the time bending plot line in Space Quest IV and check out this Space Quest VI as well. Between Sierra and Lucasarts the adventure game was tops. One thing is for sure the classic adventure games of the past I do not believe are going to return but it would behoove you to check them out.
