The Many Deaths of Roger Wilco
"The place where every day is a good day to die."


Space Quest 5 - The Goliath


Don't activate the cloaking device before the Goliath shows up.
or
Turn off the cloaking device after the Goliath shows up.

Droole: She's spotted us, sir. Her weapons are locked and preparing to fire. Been nice knowin' ya.

Duuuuh. You died because you were dumb.

Take the pod to the Goliath without taking the torch first.

You find yourself in quite a predicament. You have no means for cutting through the Goliath's hull and to return to your ship would require the Eureka to decloak insuring the death of your crew. Dang!

You are dead. Someone else will have to carry the torch you left behind.

[Screenshots]

Pick the wrong section of the Goliath to go to and cut through the hull.

Some space hero you are! Sheesh, you couldn't adventure yourself out of a damp cellulose container without third-party intervention!

[Screenshots]

Get spotted by the pukoid while in Engineering.

Boy! They were all over you like flies on... er, sorry. You're probably still a little sensitive about that fly thing.

[Screenshots]

Leave the hallway through a normal exit.

Pukoid: Halt!

Boy! They were all over you like flies on... er, sorry. You're probably still a little sensitive about that fly thing.

Get squished by an elevator in one of the shafts.

Looks like you've been spreading yourself a bit thin lately. Perhaps you'd like to try one of our less challenging games like "Mixed Up Mother Goose"?

[Screenshots]

Turn off the shields after having forgotten to get the nitrogen tanks at Genetix.

Roger: Not this time, Quirk! Now the foot's on the other shoe! You're toast!

You're the one who's toast this time, Roger. Forgetting that little item of vital importance back on Genetix has come back to haunt you. We hate to say we told you so, but we did.

Well... this new look is going to be all the rage in the quadrant, now that you won't be around to stop the mutants.

Signal Cliffy to turn on the transporter at the wrong time.

Roger: Now, Cliffy!

Boy! They were all over you like flies on... er, sorry. You're probably still a little sensitive about that fly thing.

When Flo asks you what to do tell her you'll ride it out.

Flo: Is there anything I can do Captain?

Dialogue choice: I think we can ride it out -- this blob thing doesn't look that dangerous.

Flo: As you wish, Captain. Eureka out.

A defeatist attitude won't get you anything -- except a body bag.

[Screenshots]

When Flo asks you what to do tell you'll zap the blob.

Flo: Is there anything I can do Captain?

Dialogue choice: Don't worry about it, Flo, I'm gonna fire up the Goliath's phaser banks and zap that Quirkoid blob creature into puke fritters.

Flo: All right, Captain, good luck! Eureka out.

Roger: Okay... here we go...

Roger: Now I wonder which one of these thingymabobs fires the lasers?

Some space hero you are! Sheesh, you couldn't adventure yourself out of a damp cellulose container without third-party intervention!

[Screenshots]

Beam back to the Goliath right after you've beamed to the Eureka.

Wasting all that time beaming back and forth gave the big snot ball enough time to munch down on the Goliath and the Eureka. Having no particular place to beam to, your molecules spread out across the universe.

[Screenshot]

Take too long to lure the blob away from the Goliath.

Droole: The Goliath's hull is nearing structural failure, Captain. She's going to implode if we don't do something.

You've blown it again. Due to your inability to perform under pressure, the Goliath was destroyed and so were you.

[Screenshots]

Take too long to contain the blob after you lure it towards the Eureka.

Due to your inability to perform under pressure, the Eureka has been munched by the blob. Nice going!

[Screenshots]

Open the trash compartment after you've sucked the blob in.
or
Try to go somewhere other than the open door after the blob breaks free.
or
Leave the science lab after you've jumped back into it.

Yeeuuck! The giant, pus-oozing blob has burst through the trash containment hatchway. You're up to your knees in it now -- literally!

It's a nice look for you. Too bad it can't last.

[Screenshots]

Beam off the Eureka without Beatrice.

Bea is dead. In an alternate future she would've borne your son. In the future past of Space Quest 4, your son would have saved your life. But she didn't, so he couldn't -- therefore you aren't.

[Screenshot]

Beam off the Eureka without having set the ship to self-destruct.

Droole: Captain, the Eureka has broken up, the blob is attacking *us* now...

The tremendous force exerted by the blob finally breached the Eureka's hull, leaving the Quirk-Pukoid creature free to wreak havoc upon the universe. But look on the bright side, you won't be around to face a court-martial.

[Screenshots]

Complete the whole Goliath section except for replacing the warp motivator cap, then try to leave Engineering without replacing it.

Roger: Wilco, here. Go ahead, Flo.

Flo: Captain, the Goliath's warp drive is still off-line.

Roger: Is that bad?

Flo: If it isn't operational before the Eureka self-destructs, we'll all die!

Roger: That *is* bad! I guess I better do something about that while I'm down here.

Flo: Your penetrating analysis of the situation is as remarkable as ever, sir. Flo out.

Ever get that nagging feeling you forgot something?

Total number of ways to die: 67
