So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

Buzz Lightyear of Star Command is an action game based on the Disney cartoon of the same name, a Toy Story spin-off based on Buzz Lightyear's fictional-from-the-perspective-of-the-films cartoon series, that itself is supposed to be based on the fictional-from-the-perspective-of-the-films sci-fi movie Lightyear, a spin-off that released 22 years later in our universe but a little while before in the films' universe, which served as his origin story (it's less complicated than it sounds, really). Chase bad guys across linear levels and gun them down at the end on your quest to defeat the Evil Emperor Zurg, sworn enemy of the Galactic Alliance!

Unused Audio


Upon looking in \Setup\buzzly\cd\audio, there is a WAV file called buzvbuz.wav. It is a voice clip of Bean Bunny, taken directly from Muppet RaceMania, a previous project which Traveller's Tales had worked on.
Additionally, the filename buzvbuz.wav is used in Toy Story 2 for the music track that plays on the level Toy Barn Encounter.

Missing Music Files

Some of the music files in the game data aren't present. In the file buzz.exe, they can be found. The game was seemingly supposed to read them.

  • The music for Boss Battles and the Menu Screen. It works fine but with minor problems. For example, in "Menu Screen" if you decline Nebula's messages, the music doesn't play back. The second problem is the music doesn't play in the Final Battle with Zurg.
  • The music for the end credits.
  • It plays when the level is completed. It's used in the Dreamcast version.
  • It plays on the "Mission Failed" screen, and also used in the Dreamcast version.
  • A remixed version of the title screen music that doesn't play anywhere. Even when this music is restored in-game, the "Star Command Options" will stay silent.

Installer Oddities

DEMO folder

In \Setup, there is a folder labeled DEMO. In it is a blank text file called "Place Demos Here.txt". There were no demos included with the game.

Unused Strings

In \Setup\STRINGS, there are unused .lag files, which are used for the language of the game. There are quite a lot of unused languages, including Japanese. The same also applies for \Setup\BURST\strings.

Toy Story 2 Leftovers

  • In \Setup, there is a file called toy2.ins. This is probably the installer for Toy Story 2: Buzz Lightyear to the Rescue.
  • In \Buzz Lightyear of Star Command\data\pcbits in the installed directory, there is an image from Toy Story 2 that was used for the resolution settings.
