Humans (Homo Sapiens) are the inhabitants of Terra III (Earth), Xenon[1], and Estros[2].

Background Edit

In the distant future humans from earth colonized Xenon.[3] In fact many humanoids in the galaxy evolved from humans from earth.[4]

Most species regard humans as rather dull, but also see the whole Milky Way as backwater and a "cesspool". In recent times (c. 3043) Earth has actually become a giant landfill.

Humans from Earth are known as Earthlings[5] and those from Estros are known as Latex Babes, and to some those from Xenon are known as Xenonites and sometimes Xenonian[6].

One of the Two Guys from Andromeda admitted to being human in the Galactic Inquirer. The other has since appeared to be human as well.

Project Immortality was designed to help humankind.[7]

Known humansEdit

Behind the scenesEdit

Roger Wilco is said to be a human throughout the space quest series[8][9][10][11][12][13], and states himself that he is human in SQ6[14]. Humans are mentioned or appear throughout the series as well.[15] That being said, SQ4 mentions humans (generally as an insult, in its two references), and is the only game in which Roger isn't specifically said to be human (unless Snarkgurgle Snuffleslurple is acknowledging that Roger is a human, within his insult to humanity).[16]

A related term that appears in the series is humanoid which refers to races that have generally similar appearance to humankind (at least in as much they are bipedal, usually have only two arms, and single head). Roger is sometimes referred to as 'humanoid' by characters, and so are the Latex Babes (though they are also described as human in places as well).

The Latex Babes species is not given in the SQ4, however they are confirmed to be humans in the The Space Quest Companion. SQ6 suggests they are a unique alien race of 'humanoids' for whatever reason.

  4. Narrator (SQ6): Through the passage of time some personal habits haven't changed with humanoids of earth heritage. Although no one knows the true origin, people have been hanging rolls of flimsy paper called azwipe next to their extruded item disposal units. Since no one is certain of its actual use, it is a mere cultural decoration in most circles.

  7. The Holy Grail of narcissists everywhere, Project: Immortality is the cold, hard scientific name applied to the cold, hard science that is the Fountain of Youth of our times. Project: Immortality is funded by Sharpei and overseen by controversial doctor Hayden Beleauxs. It promises humankind the hope of the ages: eternal life. Sure makes marriage a scary propostion though, doesn't it?
  8. Narrator (SQ1AGI): "Silly human! That would not be helpful.", "Silly human, you know that droids are not programmed for chit-chat!", "Silly human!", "That concludes your experiment involving the effects of total vacuum on the human body, %s1.", "Once again, you've demonstrated your inability to carry out a simple task like saving all of humanity. You quickly glance around the room to see if anyone saw your silly mistake. Thank you for playing Space Quest, %s1. You've been most entertaining.", "You, a mere human, are no match for this mechanical menace.", "Here lies another heap of fried humanity. The attackers have proven to be very thorough thus far. There's something to be said for not being the hero type, you rationalize."
  9. Narrator (SQ1VGA) "It doesn't respond to human voice commands. It only works through the data archive console.", "That concludes your experiment on the effects of vacuum on the unprotected human body. Wasn't that fun!", "This skull makes a darn comfortable little cave if you ignore the disturbing human-size remains in the back.", "That would be unwise. The pod drives are still hot and not suitable for handling by humans."
  10. Narrator (SQ2):"Didn't you learn anything in the last game? You can't expose bare human to the harshness of space!", "Obviously, we didn't learn our lesson in the first chapter about the effects of vacuum on the human body. There are other ways to kill yourself. Try one of them if you want to end it all.", "Who are you, the human fly?", "There are several stalls on the east wall, none of which are designed to accommodate humans."
  11. Narrator (SQ3): "You step on a part of the track which is extremely narrow and greasy. It obviously wasn't designed for human foot travel. It's a quick drop to the unforgiving surface below.", "Leave it alone. It has no human interface capability."
  12. "Narrator (SQ5): Fuelish human! You ran out of gas!", "That may not be a good idea. The guard looks as if he would cheerfully turn you into a human pretzel if you even looked at him sideways.", Droole: "Humans cannot survive on this planet without a complete vac suit, Captain.", Quirk: "Hello again Wilco, you insignificant little pimple on the behind of humanity.", WD-40: "You thought wrong, human. It just goes to show: Never send a mandroid to do a womanoid's work.", Serverbot: "If you feel the urge to 'hurl', please feel free to use the rest rooms, humans.", Environdome Computer: "...currently unsuitable for human habitation."
  13. Narrator (SQ6): "Not unlike your fellow humans, they pay you no mind.", "It's tolerant of humans -- to a point. You'd best leave it alone and get back to business."
  14. Roger Wilco (SQ6): "What's the matter? Afraid a measly, little, pencil-neck, lowlife janitor and general waste of human life is going to embarrass you in front of your friends?"
  15. SQ1: "This skull makes a darn comforable little cave if you ignore the human-sized remains in the back.", (SQ5):"They're all depending on us, sir: Humans, Rigellians, orats, and even species like dolphins.", Quirk (SQ5): "Hello again Wilco, you insignificant little pimple on the behind of humanity.", WD40 (SQ5): "You thought wrong, human."
  16. This is so easy, a human could probably do it. Burger comes out of the oven. Drop on yer lettuce, yer pickle, squeeze on yer mayo, squirt on yer mustard, on goes yer ketchup, top it off with yer sesame-seed bun. You make 'em MY way, and if you mess up enough times, you're outta here. Got it?", Hintbook text: "Buy this hintbook and it all\n" \ "becomes obvious. You'll hit\n" \ "your head and say, \"Boy, how\n" \ "stupid could I have been? A\n" \ "moron could've figured this\n" \ "out. I must be a real dimwit,\n" \ "a pathetic nimnal, a wretched,\n" \ "idiotic excuse for a human\n" \ "being not to have figured\n" \ "out these simple puzzles in\n" \ "the first place.\" Try it\n" \ "and see!"
