You can appreciate the other side, praise them on their successes even, but your heart will only ever belong to one. For me, Star Trek wins out over Star Wars, specifically The Next Generation. If that was what the final frontier was like, sign me up.
It was with this in mind that I first came to Space Quest V, the penultimate episode of Sierra’s hilarious – if somewhat punishing – adventure game series. The previous four games had been written and designed by a couple of gents called “The Two Guys From Andromeda” but, after years of collaboration the gents went their separate ways. Mark Crowe stayed on to design the sequel and – like Red Dwarf would do under similar circumstances – this led to a slight shift in the tone of the game.
