Did You Know?


The name of the store "Droids-B-Us" is a parody on the toy store chain "Toys 'R' Us". It was first named "Droids-R-Us", but "Toys 'R' Us" sued Sierra for its use of the similar name without permission. Thus the name of the store was changed to "Droids-B-Us". The logo of "Droids-B-Us" resembles the logo of "Toys 'R' Us", and on the left side of the building there is a picture of "Gerry Giraffazoid" - a parody of Geoffrey Giraffe, the "Toys 'R' Us"'s mascot.

Shortly after Roger takes off in the ship he bought at Ulence Flats, the time pod which Roger stole in the fourth game Space Quest IV: Roger Wilco and the Time Rippers appears. In the fourth game, Roger indeed used the time pod to travel to Ulence Flats, but upon arriving he finds out that most of the stores have been long closed and abandoned (except the bar) - so he could not arrive there shortly after leaving the place in the first game, while the stores were still open.
