Space Quest IX (SQ XIV) is the first space quest era to have time pods models with voice recognition technology installed rather than keypads.
Little is known if Roger Wilco or Beatrice are alive in this time sector. As of Space Quest XII: Vohaul's Revenge II era they are indicated to be possibly dead at some unknown point before that era. If they are not alive, and assuming no potential cloning or resurrection/further changes into an alternate history, its possible that this era stars Roger, Jr. The era apparently does involve Time Travel as well.
