Due to his actions in the preceding game, Roger Wilco is stripped of his rank of captain and drummed out of Spacefleet Academy. Although not released from the service entirely, he is demoted to his former rank of Janitorial Assistant Second Class and assigned to a ship that resembles an athletic supporter, DeepShip 86.
Following a successful mission, the entire crew of DeepShip 86 gets planetary leave on Polysorbate 60, including Wilco. Unfortunately, he's short on cash and has to earn his way around the planet doing odd jobs in order to make it back to the ship. This includes capturing an endodroid for a droidrunner and beating an alien at the game Stooge Fighter.
In a bit of bad luck, something happens to one of Wilco's shipmates, Corpsman Santiago, and he must rescue her by going inside her body and clearing out all her internal infestations. There are many ways to die, all of them equally comic, and each location is filled with gross and bizarre aliens.
Space Quest VI: Roger Wilco in The Spinal Frontier is full of puns and parodies of science fiction movies and television shows, ranging from Blade Runner and Terminator to Star Trek and the Carmen Sandiego franchise. The Space Quest series is well known for its tendency towards juvenile level gross-out type humor (such as nose picking aliens) and the current title continues the trend. ~ Lisa Karen Savignano, All Game Guide
