We come in peace!
I actually got into Star Control 2 late, when I read that this game got mentioned as having one of the top 10 game soundtracks ever by GameSpot(http://www.gamespot.com/features/tenspot_music/page9.html). Star Control 2's music was way ahead of its time, with lots of memorable techno tracks that you wouldn't even be ashamed to play in public (well, not too much ;)). Most of the tracks from the game are contained in here and there are many good ones. A few of them are just ambient stuff but all in all they're very good quality. Highly recommended!
