Prerelease:Star Control II (DOS)

This page details prerelease information and/or media for Star Control II (DOS).


Created by Marc Brown (alias Maruku Buranu) as a piece in a contest to submit MOD files for Star Control II.

Although this song was once implemented in development builds as the battle music, the developers eventually found the song highly distracting due to its overwhelming instrumentation. A much less overpowering theme was commissioned to Dan Nicholson and that song was used for the game instead.

The song can be downloaded in its original MOD form here.
