General Information Edit
The Pirates of Pestulon were a group of pirates made up of members of ScumSoft and led by Elmo Pug. Operating out of a secret base on the moon Pestulon, the pirates used a cloaking generator on the planet Ortega to hide themselves from view. They also operated a fleet of Skull Fighters and used them in their nefarious activities.
The greatest of their crimes was running a software company using slave labor to write software and games. Among those captured and subjected to this were the famous Two Guys From Andromeda.
The Pirates of Pestulon were exposed through the actions of Roger Wilco, who also destroyed much of the pirate fleet. The fighter belonging to one group of pirates was captured when they tried to escape the confines of Space Quest III. It is said that those that still remained were plotting to get even with Roger Wilco for a long time.They hated him ever since his rescue of the Two Guys from the lime jello.
Though the time of their final demise is not known, it is likely that the Pirates were dissolved soon after.
Game Involvement Edit
Roger Wilco unwittingly became the vehicle for the demise of the Pirates of Pestulon when he discovered a secret message from the Two Guys From Andromeda hidden within the arcade game Astro Chicken. Roger sought out the Two Guys, and in the process, destroyed the Pirates' cloaking generator, infiltrated their base, freed the Two Guys from being encased in Jello, was captured, forced to fight Nukem Dukem robots against Elmo Pug, escaped, and single-handedly destroyed the pirate fleet in his handy ship, the Aluminum Mallard.
It is possible that the title of Space Quest 3: "Pirates of Pestulon" is a spoof of the title of the famous Gilbert and Sullivan musical, "The Pirates of Penzance".
