Striking looks, a keen intellect, and a strong personality combined to make Beatrice Wankemeister one of the most effective negotiators in the history of the G6 Quadrants diplomatic corps. An outspoken advocate for sentient species' rights and environmental issues, Beatrice's vigorous activities in these areas had lead to several legislative measures and two stellar protocols, including one on hazardous waste disposal. Beatrice's natural inclination to speak her mind had been tempered but not eliminated, by her years of service to the diplomatic corps. She had gone after intersteller consortiums with dogged tenacity that, at times, bordered on the obsessive. She remained single, having little time or interest for anything but her work.
Soon she had become the Ambassador to the Star Confederation for the G6 Quadrant. She was so concerned with the biological ramifications of the Sludge Bandits that she transmitted the locations where they dumped their waste around the relatively uninhabited G6 quadrant. She also requested the deployment of shome ships from the StarCon Academy but she was met with scepticism. Captain Raemes T. Quirk however insisted that she'd accompany him aboard the SCS Goliath as it patrolled the alleged dump sites.
During a shuttle recovery, the crew of the Goliath was attacked by mutated survivors from the colony of Klorox II, and only Wankmeister escaped unharmed in an escape pod that landed on the nearby planet of Thrakus. The crew of the SCS Eureka followed her pod beacon and she was rescued from the mutated crew of the Goliath, but was hit with some Primordial Soup. Aboard the SCS Eureka, Wankmeister reveals to Captain Roger Wilco that she took the Goliath's warp distributor cap, thus hindering their plans to attack StarCon. Roger Wilco placed Wankmeister in the CryoSleep for suspended animation to slow the progress of her Pre Monster Syndrome caused by the insidious Primordial Soup. This gave the crew time to travel to the source of the Primordial Soup, Genetix, where she was successfully cured and placed back into the cryogenic chamber to rest. The heroic actions of Roger Wilco at last endeared him to Wankmeister, and the future laid out for Roger in Space Quest 4 finally seemed possible.
She would later bear Roger Wilco a son, Roger Jr., who would grow up to be a great rebel leader of the Time Ripper resistance movement. She would sadly not see her son's success as she apparently died under mysterious and unknown (at least from SQ4 era Roger Wilco's point of view) circumstances sometime before the era of Space Quest 12.
