Also must say, the Remixes didn't seem evil enough for me... These Ur-Quan, the green and the black, are enslaving alien races or killing them! You (the player) are the ONLY hope at stopping these bizarre alien creatures from destroying the galaxy, specifically the Earth will be obliterated! These are mal-aligned creatures with no good purposes, and are out to get EVERYONE!! No one is safe from their wrath!! Doesn't that justify an incredibly EVVVVVVvvviiiLLLLLLLLL soundtrack to go with their motives?

And about the length issue: When I used to play the game, I would sit there talking with the aliens for a good 10 minutes or more real time. So it got a little monotonous to hear the music looping 5 or more times during the conversation...

My opinion: I thought all the new songs are rather short... I was rather dissapointed my first listen through! The only one's that were pleasing to the ear are the VUX, Mycon, and Thraddash. Thraddash was my favorite, but I wish it was even MORE heavy metal sounding.

Of course, I must say that I do not remember much of how the originals sounded... Let me try to download the mods.

I haven't posted in a LONG time... (Actually, I only ever made one post) So here goes my idea...

Since Nintendo seems to be re-creating a LOT of games, or porting, or enhancing, why not do the same with Star Control 2? (Or the Ur-Quan Masters?)

I propose this game be re-made for the Nintendo Gamecube. Keep the game in a traditional 2D style, but with 3D character models, etc. For an example, see the ever popular Super Smash Brothers Melee - one of the first and still best games for Gamecube. All the characters and stages are 3D objects, but they move in a 2D fashion.

Hypermelee in Star Control 2 would be INSANELY fun on the Gamecube. I would say keep it to two players. If the game is widely popular, a proper sequal could be made with four player support in Melee.

What does everyone think of this idea? Please reply with your opinion!

Gah!  Huh

You all seem to be thinking wrong... I WAS thinking of a commercial release. Why would we take the trouble porting it to a console (or portable) system, trying to save money, only to lose a lot of time trying to come up with ways around the hardware limitations??

I am going to have to research the way to do this, but if I can find the right team, it would be rather simple to port Star Control over to the GBA. The problem would arise on how to get acceptance from whoever owns the program? The name change to the Ur-Quan Masters would be easy, to get around the rights to the Star Control name. But I would still need some acceptance from the true owners on commercial release of the game. Does anyone know who I would contace? Toys for Bob?

  Thank you,

I suggest that the Star Control Games should be Ported over to the Game Boy Advance! The graphical level on the Nintendo system is somewhere between Super Nintendo and Playstation 1. I am sure that the system can perform all the necessary actions to make Star Control a reality on the GBA.
Already classic PC games have been ported over to the GBA, like Doom, (Doom II and Quake is in the works), Wolfenstein, and there is a new Duke Nukem game similar to Duke Nukem 3d.

The GBA cartridges may even be able to hold both Star Control 1 and 2 on a single cart! Plus, multiplayer is what the GBA system is all about, so Melee would be a REALLY cool multiplayer option!

What does everyone else think of porting Star Control to GBA?
