* YouHaveToHaveJews: ''Space Quest IV'' features a heavily Jewish-themed parody of ''WhereInTheWorldIsCarmenSandiego'' called "Where in the World is Hymie Lipschitz? (And Who Really Cares)," which makes reference to yarmulkes, "[[JewishMother the girl Mom's picked out for him]]," and [[BreadEggsMilkSquick 3.5'' circumcision]].

*** Among the musicians performing at the bar are TheBluesBrothers, a nasty Madonna parody, and originally ZZ Top.

* RidiculousFutureSequelisation: ''Space Quest IV'', with its TimeTravel theme, labelled its various time periods using sequel numbers. The post-apocalyptic future into which Roger was initially thrown is identified as "Space Quest XII"; the galactic mall in the "Space Quest X" period also tosses a reference to ''King's Quest XXXXVIII: The Quest For More Disk Space'' (back in the days before CD-ROM drives) stated to be by "Roberta Williams III".

In addition to the official six games, there are several fan-made games and a graphical update to the second title on the level of the official update to the first. There had been talks of a ''Space Quest VII'' but as of now it looks like there will be no more official installments in the series. However, [[http://guysfromandromeda.com the Two Guys eventually reunited]] and are looking to make a new "[[https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/spaceventure/two-guys-spaceventure-by-the-creators-of-space-que SpaceVenture]]" that's [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial totally not]] [[SpiritualSuccessor a new Space Quest]]. [[BlatantLies Totally]].

Added DiffLines:

* LighterAndSofter: As in Space Quest 5 and 6, the art style has become progressively more cartoon-like, despite the violence is still retained (Such as the ExplosiveDecompression screen where Roger's head starts [[TurnsRed flashing red]] and [[PopGoesTheHuman simply bursts like a bubble]] in a cartoonish manner).

* ShoutOut: Blatantly on multiple occasions; the [=SQ1=] remake features one of [[TabletopGame/BattleTech "The Unseen"]], a [[Franchise/StarTrek Starfleet]] shuttle, an opening cutscene similar to the capture of the Blockade Runner in ''StarWars: ANewHope'', a Krayt Dragon RibcageRidge from the latter, and a Romulan Warbird. It's a wonder Sierra didn't get sued over it all.

* StylisticSuck: At the end of ''Space Quest III'', the Two Guys from Andromeda are very pleased that Ken Williams has never heard of Astro Chicken.

** Also in ''Space Quest I'', the only way to find out where the Sariens had taken the Star Generator is [[spoiler:to have three beers at the bar.]] Both of these puzzles are made harder in the VGA version by the fact that the location of the Star Generator and the name of the cartridge that has to be retrieved are randomized (And later have to be translated into a code provided in the copy protection booklet) in each playthrough, while in the EGA version the answers were hardcoded.
