If Star control 2 is a Dad telling his adventures to his kids then what does he say during the screen sex part or does he just skip it because that would be awkward if he told them.

Star Control 2 is NOT the captain telling his grandkids. It IS the sequence of events, and then you fast forward a long way ahead and he happens to be talking about those events.

Huh, I never saw it that way Death, it always struck me that he was telling the story. The sick bay scene seems to point out that way too.

I think that's the point Death was getting at, there is a timeskip after the escape pod scene in the ending where it shifts from the actual sequence of events to Zelnick telling stories to his grandkids. You can make the implication by the presence of first person narration suddenly cropping up.

Also the "Mark 2" fits the description of the ship the Slylandro said the Precursors dlseeing away in also I think Death is most likey right it makes the most sense.
