Directly from the manual:

The gameplay takes place 20 years after the great war of Star Control I. This time, your mission is to explore and liberate the various alien races and planets in the different star systems and take part in action filled space battles.

Super Melee:
A bonus game in which you take part in spaceship to spaceship combat with the choice of 28 different starships. Challenge a friend or the computer.

One of my favorite games. Good news everyone! You can play StarCon2 with slightly updated graphics (from the 3DO port) and remixed music on Windows (also, MacOS X and Linux)! Toys For Bob released the source code for StarCon2 and a dedicated team is working hard porting it to modern PCs. The project is opensource, that means you can download it for FREE! Did you hear that? FREE!

The story mode is purely singleplayer, but the melee is playable by 1-2 human players.

I split SC2 and Ur-Quan Masters... no real reason other than Ur-Quan Masters isn't the name of the original and the open source game doesn't have Star Control in its name, also UQM is ported to wider variety of systems, wasn't developed (the code, I mean, not the game content) and published by the same people, etc. etc.
