Is Roger Wilco (of Space Quest series) actually  an Androsynth ?

Oh wow, that brings back some memories. I was especially fond of the first game on my old Apple ][ GS.

No.

How can you be so sure of it ?
He did hijack spacecraft , can make anything into a weapon (or at least a destructive force) , has been put to hard slave-type work in spite of saving the world numerous times over and his pockets are absolutely positive inter-dimentional devices , judging by their capacity and size of objects stored .

Other than that , the uniform and the hairstyle definately match (the blond could be just die) .

1) if you're taking this seriously... the universes' histories aren't compatible.

2) as a reference, Space Quest 4 was released around the same time as SC1, which would make it unlikely that either could refer to the other, unless the art for the main character was last; and the androsynth captain portrait is too lo-res to be much of a reference to anything.

I'm not taking this that serious , i just like a good discussion when there are grey areas of argumentation .

No. 2 argument is a strong one , I never actually looked on release dates and the early Roger graphics looked a lot more like the Androsynth mellee pics . But , and this mainly relates to n.1 argument , this thread was supposed not to seek who inspired who , but rather more of the "Gandalf vs. Batman" sort of thing .

Well, he did originally have brown hair. So either he has some weird disease or he dyes it.

Come on, guys.  Why do you think he's such a superior janitor?  And, if he's such a good janitor, why hasn't he been promoted yet?

Obviously, his boss is an anti-Androsyth racist of some kind.

Such as a human. Or an Ur-Quan. Maybe even an Orz. Androsynth can't catch any breaks, can they?
