Music by Laura Barratt

This is one of the three tracks that plays whenever you're on the main menu screen or on the starmap screen. It's a very slow-paced, meandering affair yet also mysterious and desolate too; the kind of music you'd expect maybe in a 90s space documentary. Admittedly, this isn't normally the kind of music I like: I'm not usually a fan of the ambient stuff, but it's definitely a memorable tune, thanks to it and the three other themes being played over-and-over again :).
