    He's Lean, He's Mean and He's Out To Clean...

    Roger Wilco, the universe's favorite janitor, has bamboozled his way through the StarCon Space Academy and taken command of his own starship. Granted she's only a beat-up garbage scow, but hey, it beats sleeping in the broom closet.

    As he stumbles his way through space, Roger must deal with such minor inconveniences as a stone cold killer androidess out for blood, an acid-piddling baby face hugger, and a horde of mutants rampaging through the galaxy in a stolen spaceship. And then there's primordial soup, a concoction heinous enough to make George Bush hurl in his sushi.

    And if that's not enough to clog your air-hose: Rog finally meets the woman from the holodisk in Space Quest IV. But our fearless hero has a high-ranking rival for her affections, the Commander of the Star Confederation's flagship, Captain Quirk.

    It's up to Roger to save the universe from the mutant menace, thwart his nemesis Captain Quirk, and woo the woman of his dreams or he'll be—Gone with the Trash.

    SEE! Awesome 30 animation, scintillating 256 color artwork and Asteroidsl Asteroids! Asteroids!

    FEEL! The smooth shrink-wrap packaging included at no charge with every game!

    HEAR! A breath-taking original score and digitized sounds* so real you'll think you're on Xenon.**

    *Requires sound card. **The planet, not the gas.

    Captain Roger Wilco sets off into the uncharted waste bins of the universe.

    Danger and knee-slapping jokes can be found in every corner of the galaxy.

    You'll laugh out loud at Roger's bumbling crew of strange aliens.

    Watch out for giant robotic creatures, gross pukoids, and nasty phlegm throwers.


    Mark Crowe - Co-author of the four previous installments of the Space Quest saga flies solo as the designer of the latest Roger Wilco adventure. But wait!... Where's the trademarked Andromedan nose and Mohawk? You'll read all about it in the latest issue of the Galactic Inquirer. FREE COPY INSIDE!
