At the title screen, option-click the Escape Velocity title. This
will display the EV-MST3K scroll. At the end, when you see
M.C.B. 4:35 A.M. hold down option-shift-control-command-F. You
will hear the Forklift theme song, They’ll Try To Kill ‚Em With
A Forklift. The loaded pilot will then receive the forklift– a
weapon of unspeakable power which the pilot can take with him (or
her) from ship to ship. Don’t use this weapon at close ranges.
The forklift is guided much like a torpedo (and is just as slow),
but it has an incredibly long range and does tons o’ damage. Seven
simultaneous forklifts (you need a LONG running start for THIS
little trick…) will disable a Confed Cruiser! Five simultaneous
will KILL a Rebel Cruiser. Anything less than a Kestrel will be
killed with only one shot. Sometimes, small fighters are kind
enough to collect together. One shot can kill them all.
This is the only weapon I know of which is capable of killing the
dread Cap’n Hector, and only if you aim it at ANOTHER ship; time
it just right so that Cap’n Hector is passing the ship just as
the forklift detonates.
