English was thought to be an ancient dead language from the planet Terra III. In reality it was still spoken in much the galaxy under other dialects such as Xenonian. Because of this Roger Wilco claims it would be incomprehensible to him, but in reality he was able to understand it just fine, and in fact asked multiple times if others spoke English. He had no problems communicating with Ken Williams. If there was a problem his Dialect Translator helped out.
Behind the scenesEdit
In The Official Guide To Roger Wilco's Space Adventures, Roger Wilco routinely asks if people he is talking to understand 'English', thus it would seem that Roger understands the language more than he claims to in his auto-biographic disks. For that matter, those reading his disks on Earth had no problem reading his story.
