Project: Immortality (not to be confused with Project: Immorality) is the plan of Sharpei and Dr. Beleauxs to create a system to ensure pseudo-immortality to human kind by transferring one person's consciousness to another person's body, thereby subverting the recipient's being. Their insidious plan was thwarted by Roger Wilco during their attempt to insert Sharpei's essence into Stellar Santiago.
The project has a file in Cyberspace.
Behind the scenesEdit
It should be noted that purpose of "Project: Immortality" is very similar use as the process Sludge Vohaul used to displace Roger Wilco Jr.'s mind with his own. Both systems were designed to allow immortality by transferring one person's conciousness into the body of another. However rather than transferring one's conciousness via nanite, Sludge Vohaul transferred his mind via disk. Or rather the consciousness was on disk, it's not clear the exact process the machine used to copy the consciousness to another individual. But in both cases software backup is utilized in some form. However, Sharpai's technology seems to utilize bio-mechanical technology with her essence kept inside of a a minature (or is that minaturized) brain, but then again even super comptuer is described as bio-mechanical in nature.
It may be possible that Vohaul's technology represented a prototype to Project: Immortality that was later augmented with future technology from the Space Quest XII era. Based on the direction of The Space Quest Companion took the Space Quest Saga, more than likely Sharpei would have ended up having a connection to Sludge Vohaul in some form if a third edition had been published. How she could have been connected can only be speculated (perhaps even Sludge's sister, the mother of Raems Quirk). It is possible that both Sharpei and Sludge Vohaul worked on Project: Immortality (or at least the project was the next stage of the development). Both Sharpei and Sludge Vohaul were all driven to stay alive and finding new bodies to replace their own (to do this both had technology that could transfer the mind of one person to another). To a lesser degree even Raems Quirk was concerned with extending his own life and remaining young (which might tie Primordial Soup into Project Immortality). It is possible that even Elmo Pug's Software R & D may have been behind the development of the technology used to backup both Sludge Vohaul and Sharpei's minds, connecting yet another Vohaul villain into Project Immortality (the Companion actually does connect the disks Vohaul copied his mind to ScumSoft).
