Authors, and Websites
Stories focused on the family and the friendly relationships of the cast. Plot-focused stories or light day-in-the-life stories. Pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance.

- Synopsis: It's very Mycon.
- Comments: Those who are familiar with Star Control, and no one else, should read Fibre.
- Glidergun: For those who have not played Star Control II, it's incomprehensible rambling. For those who have played Star Control II, it's still incomprehensible rambling, but you know it's supposed to be that way.
The Groombridge Log
- Recommended by Eida
- Synopsis: A beautiful look into the thoughts of the Slylandro as they send their exploration probe out into space.

Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.
- Recommended by Murus
- Synopsis: A novelization of Star Control II. Written from the perspective of Adam Gruber, First Officer of the Vindicator.
- Comments: Murus: The author has a great ability to expand the canonical storyline, creating a plausible and working story. Readers may find the exact copying of in-game dialogue into the story to be jarring and not well integrated with original lines, but that problem disappears with time. Likewise, the writing style improves later on. Go and read for yourself!
