I have to say, SC3 seemed to have higher caliber voice work in general. But that's just me. I still hate SC3 with a bleeding red pashion.

Star Control 3 had a bigger budget than the 3D0 Star Control II remake, I'm sure.  That comes through in the puppetering they added to SC3 and the 3D (sort of) battle modes.

It's also important to note that a lot of the voices in the 3D0 version were done by team members and not by professional voice actors.  I think the Spathi, Orz and the VUX were terrifically done in SC3, so perhaps the only good part about the game is the voice acting.  But understand that a 3D0 re-make would have a much lower budget than, say, a new game for the PC released by Accolade.

For SC2, I only ones who have the possibility to make me go stark, raving *frumple* are the Orz (Which, by the way, always sound like they're hitting on me when they say "hello"), the Pkunk, and the Slylandro.
 
I like the Spathi, the Humans, the Thraddash, the Ur-quan, the Illwrath and the Arilu.  The others are fine.
 
For SC 3*, I dislike: Humans, Syreen, Spathi, Clairconctlar, DakTakBakPaks, And just about everyone else.  The only ones I liked were the K'Tang and Orz.
 
 
*Yes, SC 3 exists.  It was a good game, but once you've played SC 2...

I actually dig that English/Scottish accent that the Yehat has.
LOL, it was totally unexpected, but it just fits them so well  Grin  Wink

English/Scottish?!!  That accent is Scottish in every way, shape, and form!  Don't offend my Scottish heritage by associating me with those darned English...!  Haven't you ever seen Braveheart?  Just imagine a Yehat saying "You can take away me life, but ye can't take away me freedom!"  Hehe.  I could just see a brigade of Yehat playing bagpipes, painting their faces blue, and charging into battle with their wings-a-blazin'!

Its not the sound of the voices that suck.
Its the cornball experssions they use, they raise and deepen their voices way too often, they just make the aliens sound like idiots or 4 year olds.

I.e Hayes: "STRUGGLING down here on earth,  BENEATH the slave shield"
What kind of person talks like that ?
Should be more like "

"Struggling down here on earth, beneath the slave shield."

(you have to read those 2 sentances aloud to see the differnece"

While I know SC2 was supposed to be a humouros game, taking away the seriousness in the aliens speech kills something for me in the game..

The best way to describe it is.
They sound like they are news presenters.

I.e they sound like they are talking AT you, making a speech, Instead of talking TO you.

I like how Commander Hayes speaks a little bit quicker, so I don't have to wait for hours when he's explaining all the different alien races and goings-on in the galaxy.  I just skip over all the really slow-conversation aliens, because I don't have that kind of time to listen to them drone on.

I agree with Novus on this. It's the same thing as the question bout which intro-ending you want to see. It all depends on what you played originally.
