When you need to rescue Cliffy near Thrakus; waste all the fuel of your EVA pod before you get him. You'll get caught by the planet's gravity and crash. The camera shifts towards the surface of Thrakus and shows two mushrooms have a conversation as they watch Roger come down:
Mushroom # 1: "Ah look, Crumpella a shooting star. Make a wish."
Mushroom # 2: "Ok. Slep. I wish... I wish... I wish I had never bought Rexx Nebular."
Space Quest 5 is the second Sierra adventure game to feature product placement by the US-American telephone company Sprint. The first game was Leisure Suit Larry 5. Instead of text messages like in Larry 5, this time Sprint paid for graphic advertisement. The Sprint logo would end any communication transmissions, as well as appear on a billboard in the Space bar. See the screenshot section for examples. Add

This was the first Space Quest not created by both of the Two Guys From Andromeda (Scott Murphy and Mark Crowe). After Space Quest IV, the two guys split up as they need a change of climate and didn't want to be remembered solely for their Space Quest games. Mark Crowe would later go on to design Space Quest V solo.
Unlike the other five Space Quests, this one was in fact programmed by Dynamix (since Mark Crowe, the guy formerly from Andromeda, was working there at the time). The Dynamix logo appears at least twice throughout the game, and in one scene a couple of the motion capture aliens are wearing spare costumes taken from the set of Betrayal at Krondor. Add
