Choicest VGM - VGM #336 - Master of Orion II - High Master of the New Republic

Screenshot of High Council in Master of Orion II

Music by Laura Barratt

Just like many of the tracks in Master of Orion II this one is pretty short and plays in the background when the Galactic High Council meets to elect a new emperor of the galaxy. Considering my generally pacifist tendencies, a diplomatic victory is always an appealing one in 4X games, although it does suck when all the AI empires band together to vote for an emperor that isn't you - since that means you are automatically classified as a rogue state which means war between your empire and the New Republic!

In this particular screenshot, I probably picked the least charismatic race to be elected as emperor of the New Republic - suffice it to say, it never happened.
