Space Quest 1: The Sarien Encounter

The start of the epic Space Quest series.  You, Roger Wilco, are a janitor on board the Arcada, a scientific spaceship carrying a coveted and powerful device called the "Star Generator".  A Sarien ship hijacks the Arcada while you were napping, and subsequently sets off the self destruct sequence. After a narrow escape, you must navigate the dry desert planet Kerona, a sinister cave, and several other places to find the stolen "Star Generator".

This game, originally programmed in Sierra's AGI engine, was later re-released using the SCI language and VGA graphics.  It is a classic point and click adventure game for the PC.
