I know this man. This is Jerry. Poor fellow. This mission
was going to be Jerry's last tour of duty and he was planning
to celebrate by having a gender-change operation during the
voyage home. He wanted to surprise his wife."
live in caves and hunt for Grell at night. The Orat is a native
Keronian creature and can only be found there. Roger encountered
one of these savage creatures and managed to kill it. Nowadays,
the Orat has almost become extinct because it's a very popular
snack by Monolith Burger visitors.
Keronian civilization is the oldest of Kerona, as they are
the original inhabitants. Sadly, since the arrival of space
settlers and immigrants, the rich Keronian culture is suppressed
and they are forced to live underground. The new colonists
don't share their way of life, you see. The peaceful Keronians
are always scared to have their underground cities and hide
outs discovered, and despise the Orat. The image you see here
on the left is a holographics projection of the Keronian leader
Chdnarian sales bug
sales bug appears to be a Chdnarian, a race renowned for their
predatory sales techniques. This bug has won a prize for "Salesbug
of the year". Better count your fingers once you've completed
your transaction. Roger encountered this creature on Kerona
when looking for a navigational droid.
the cosmos contains a diverse spectrum of life forms, the
Sariens are universally considered amoung the ugliest and
worst-dressed. They are space thugs who cruise the galaxies
causing havoc by exposing aerosol cans to open flame or fire
- Living as nomads, without a world to call their own. Eons
ago, they lived in the Earnonian solar system with the Xenonian
race. But these two highly intelligent races could not coexist.
A battle was to be fought. In the famous Telecommunications
War, the Xenonians won and the Sariens were expelled. This
happened literally eons ago, so one would think they would
have gotten over it by now, but apparently they still hold
a grudge. The Sariens are still determined to make the Humans
from Xenon pay, and they did... With the mad scientist Sludge
Vohaul as their leader, they stole the newly developed Star
Generator (a powerful weapon if it were to fall in the wrong
hands). The only problem was that our friend Roger Wilco interfered.
He destroyed the Star Generator which was aboard the mighty
Sarien battlecruiser, the Deltaur. Since that time, almost
all of the Sariens' pirate-like activities have ceased. It
is feared that the Sariens are still roaming the Galaxy, waiting
for a new opportunity to strike.
Sarien Spider Droid
If the eyes don't deceive, that's a Sarien Spider Droid. Its
red scanner probes the terrain for anything that moves. Roger
Wilco recalls reading in an old issue of Space Piston Magazine
that this droid was designed to seek out organic life forms
and self-destruct when close proximity to the target has been
achieved. One was sent after Roger, but it is not known what
happened to it, as it suddenly disappeared from Sarien deep
space scanner probes. It must have suffered a defective leg
servo. Truly an icon of terror.
is a used spacecraft seller on the planet Kerona. Although
he looks friendly, he is only interested in selling his ships
for appealing amounts of money. It so happens that Roger Wilco
did buy a ship at "Tiny's used spacecrafts lot".
He got near the Sarien battlecruiser Deltaur with it. It is
said that Tiny was killed by one of the Ulence Flats gangmembers
because he sold a ship that wasn't his.
of the many muggers on Kerona who are involved in gang activities.
there, pal. It's come to my attention that you're in the market
for some transportation. Just follow me....."
"Hold it right there, pal! This is a stick-up! I'll just
relieve you of your cash, thank you very much."
much is known about Slash Vohaul. (Sludge’s brother). He
continued Sludge's work on the Star Generator after Sludge was
the project (we learn more about Sludge in Space Quest 2). Slash
mysteriously died just after the Star Generator project was completed,
but he managed to sent out an encrypted data storage cartridge
that contain the bue prints of the secret Star Generator (volume
Body, the Untold Story). It is believed that Slash somehow learned
about his brother's evil intention to steal the Star Generator...
was then brotherless, or so it seems.... hahahaha!
