1.                                Introduction

===============================================================================


At the end of Space Quest II, Roger Wilco blasts off from Vohaul's asteroid in
a pod. In the pod was a sleep chamber, which Roger quickly stepped inside.
Space Quest III starts some time after Space Quest II, where Roger's pod has
been picked up by a humongous robot controlled garbage freighter. As the pod
lands hard on the debris in the junk freighter, the sleep chamber opens, which
awakens Roger from his deep sleep.
