Over the years, several games based on the Star Control experience have been made.

Commercial Games

Star Control 3

Main article: Star Control 3

After the success of Star Control II, Accolade commissioned the creation of a sequel. While Toys for Bob created Star Control II, Star Control 3 was created by Legend Entertainment. As it didn't live up to the high standards set by its predecessor, most Star Control II fans consider Star Control 3 non-canon.

Starcon

In an attempt to create another Star Control game, Accolade started development on another installment. It was eventually cancelled.

The Gameplay seems to have had more in common with Wing Commander than with Star Control.
