Indeed, Paul himself has openly credited him (and his game) in the 2007 IRC chat, saying "Starflight was the big daddy. Greg Johnson is a design god.". Johnson did most of the Orz, Arilou and Pkunk dialogue.1
Other contributions include:
- The Utwig, Pkunk and Orz voices (for the 3DO version) — generally positively received by fans, though the Orz voice has been openly criticized (and a significant percentage of fans don't like the Utwig voice2)
- Art and animation
He also used to play Super Melee along with Paul and Toby Schadt.

- <Fwiffo> Regarding the dialog: I defined the conversations structurally and wrote pieces of all of them, however, Greg Johnson was responsible for the majority of the Orz, Arilou, and Pkunk.[...]
