With the Space Marines and Genestealers? I do! It was Hero Quest... but in SPACE!
Although it was a rather uneven series --- with II and III being the weakest of the bunch --- I still have some nostalgic affection for it.
IV was genius. Time travel, but instead of dates, Roger travels through sequels!
Wait, you want me to talk about the villains don't you?
I dunno, I liked Admiral Quirk a lot.Well no, because we all know Vohaul is the best one. :wink:

Vohaul was essentially a riff on Darth Vader, Khan and other sci-fi villains --- which I guess was the point --- but he wasn't a very good or interesting one until he became a mad supercomputer from the future in Space Quest IV.
Sharpei sucked because she was a Deus Ex Villaina.
Thassexactly what I was saying.Perhaps but he was very good in SQ4
I totally understand why you'd think that as well.The Overlord said:I think Quirk was too much of obvious spoof.
It is, actually.The Overlord said:Besides Vohaul is fun word to say.

I totally understand why you'd think that as well.
Still, I think that Quirk was plain uninteresting at first, when he's just a blatant Kirk-ian buffoon, but becomes interesting when he gets corrupted by power and delusions of superiority exacerbated by the mutagenic disease.
Granted, he, like Vohaul, should only be taken lightly, but still I found that his Kirk-ian qualities pale once he becomes less a moron and more an actual villain.
In fact, I didn't really see him as a Kirk parody until other SQ fansites brought it up, simply because I've always thought the egomaniacal high-ranking over-achieving space fleet commander is such a broad stereotype not specific to Trek.
It is, actually.
