Actually, you know you've been damaged by Star Control when you pick a fight with a violent, drunken motorcycle gang, and expect them to take their turns and fight you one on one.

Oh, and when your car/truck/plane/whatever runs out of fuel, you can count on some color-obsessed person to come sell you more fuel. Always.

...When it bothers you--really bothers you--that you can't look up the various plot-relevant stars on a real world astronomy map, because you don't know which ones they "really" are.

I mean, sure, I could find the star we call Epsilon Gruis, but it wouldn't be the same one.

Don't forget that after you beat up about half of them, you fully expect the other half to start calling you "Great Teacher," and look solely to your guidance in how they should continue to develop their gang.

A caterpillar approaches and you shout "Hold! What you are doing to us is wrong! Why do you do this thing?"

...When you see a green creature, a brown creature, and a blue creature all at once, and expect the green and the blue to bicker about pointless things while the brown one remains silent.

...The top of your gun shopping list reads "Hellbore Cannon".

...You can fully control a starship using only a directional pad or arrow keys and two to three buttons.

...Your favorite female costume involves blue skin coloring, a very skimpy outfit, and a knife.

...You encounter some teddy bear-like creature and go "It's The Ultimate Evil!!!" in that special Spathi voice.

...When looking for a talented doctor, you search for some weird, oddly-shaped meat blob with the crappiest ship in this sector of the galaxy.

...You think mowing the lawn is mass murder!

...When you hear the term "emo", you think of people wearing purple masks that only have holes for the eyes and purple robes.

...You think those "pterodactyls" were actually some sentient beings with a cowardly queen. As to what they were doing here...uplifting some primitive lifeform, perhaps?

...You think every corporate leader wears red, looks quite ugly, and dangles from chains.

When you create a race entirely from scratch and even make a Victory Ditty for them :S.

You throw globs of suspicious looking green goo at someone when they call you ugly, and when they try to apologize, you flash a green flashlight at them.

When your first thought, on hearing about a newly discovered Earth-like planet is, "!! Gaia!" even though after you do a frantic search of the news, maybe not so much.

...You actually quote the game to people who have never been exposed to it before. It tends to make you sound a bit like a raving loon.

Umm, I already do that, they give me funny looks. Tongue  You know your addicted when you constantly search the internet for RP forums, you port the game to every handheld possible, and you write these kinds of things.
