Star Control: Origins Prelude 9 of 13: The Lore of Star Control

Today we will look at our solution to that conundrum. Star Control will be a brand-new game for most people.  Given the number of comments we've seen on Facebook that can be summarized as "Oh this is inspired by Mass Effect!" or "This is just No Man's Sky with a stor...
