Starflight 2: Trade Routes of the Cloud Nebula is the 1989 sequel to the successful Starflight science fiction computer game. It was developed by Binary Systems, and published by Electronic Arts, for DOS.

Starflight 2 introduced many new features, including an interstellar trade-based game economy, a new combat model, and dozens of alien species, scattered across an even larger game map. An epic storyline, time travel, and a race of aliens resembling Midwest farmers (called "The Nelsons") made Starflight 2 one of the most memorable games of the 1980s.[citation needed]

Starflight 2 was ported to the Amiga and Apple Macintosh platforms by MicroMagic, Inc. in 1991.

One unofficial sequel to the series, Protostar, was created in 1993, and an official fan-created sequel project, called the Starflight III Project, is currently in production.
