Starflight The Remake is as the title suggests a Starflight 1 Remake worked on until 2008 and at the time was truly one of the most impressive Starflight fan game's ever made. It's extremely talented creator Stainless went on to work on the huge 3D remake of the Starflight III Fan Project and you can really see a lot of those impressive 3D features being developed way back when he was working on this SF1 remake. I'm not sure why Stainless stopped working on his remake, but I'm guessing it was because of his shift to the SF3 project.
However what really surprises me is just how complete his final Alpha build is! It contains a finished starbase, full space exploration of the galaxy and solar systems, impressive planet landing and take off sequences, working planet rover vehicle that can scan lifeforms and download messages from ruins, artefacts rendered in 3D, and apparently Aliens and combat too (although sadly I've been unable to encounter them). You can even get pulled over by the Space Cops (music and all) for speeding out of space dock lol!
This alpha contains an amazing soundtrack of beautiful space songs and some of the animation is truly impressive. It's such a shame this project was never finished and got to see the light of day however at least we now have a new Starflight 1 Remake on the way! If you want to check out this amazing project I'm hosting the final alpha on my site to ensure it's not lost forever. Enjoy!

Blake00, I watched your video on this project, thanks for documenting it. Very cool to see that this project still has some historical interest. I am not Stainless, but I was involved in this project. I created many of the graphics, including the alien comm images, and a complete set of music and sounds for it (most of this never made it into the alpha). I thought this project would be lost in time when Opie shut down the old SF3 forums a few years ago.
