There is a good team called the Alliance and a bad team called the Ur-Quan Hierarchy, you must decide which team you want to be and battle it out in many missions which each have a small story behind them (some missions are called invasion earth etc.). They did put a bit of effort into writing little intro's to each mission which was quite good.
The game is designed so that you can ease into play, familiarizing yourself with menus, options and player controls. The Alliance and Hierarchy each possess different types of warships. Each vessel has its own maneuvering and firing characteristics, plus a unique special power that you can employ when circumstances dictate.
The ships are all well designed and have many colors to them, the animation of weapons is great and the view go's in and out depending on how close you are to your enemy, you actually get a feeling like you are in space when playing sometimes.
The sound is actually very good. Star Control really does have good clear sound F/x. all the laser blasts and Nukes sound really good, also there is a couple of voice clips in this game and they sound superb.
2005-09-28 Star Control is a cult game.
