Grey Matters (3 very ugly dudes).
The Monochrome Boys are greyscale bikers who like to spend their time chugging brewskis and looking for a fight. The Grey Matters are biker gang subsidiary of this organization/race. Adventurers are advised to avoid them at all costs, especially if the adventurer possesses more than two colors in their palette. The Monochrome Boys are most commonly encountered in Ulence Flats, and can generally be found riding sand bikes. They are associated with the Grey Matters.
He went into the Rocket Bar in search of a drink, only to be accosted by the Monochrome Boys. The Boys took offense at the fact that Roger was in full color, and tossed him out of the bar.
In retaliation, Roger knocked over the Boys' sand bikes and ran for his life. The Boys, angered by Roger's actions, mounted their bikes and went to try and run Roger over. However, Roger was able to successfully dodge the bikes and re-enter the Rocket Bar.
Unfortunately, the Rocket Bar Bartender recognized Roger as the person who broke his slot machine. So Roger changed his mind before the Boys could come back for him, and returned to the timepod to head to a different era, taking a pack of matches with him as a souvenir.

- The database information in SQ6 implies that the Monochrome Boys is their designation of race/species, and not just the name of the biker gang. It may imply that there are more than three M.B. in the galaxy. It also suggests that the Monochrome Boys orginated on Pestulon.
- In the Space Quest Companion the 'actual' name of their gang is the "Grey Matters".
