Star Control II has always intrigued me, and looks really awesome, but I’ve never played more than about 30 minutes of it.
It was heavily inspired by Starflight, which the club did a few years ago (and which I also haven’t played!)
I think it could make for a good DGC episode – there’s a lot of rich discussion you could have about the differences and similarities between the two games.

I could have sworn that it was made freeware a number of years ago, but now I see it for sale on gog and steam (for just a few bucks to be fair).
I must be getting mixed up with the open-source spin off, “The Ur-Quan Masters”. Which, like, is apparently exactly the same and why would you buy Star Control II when you can just play the open source version?
