The Ur-Quan Masters is a project that aims to port the DOS/3DO game Star Control II to modern platforms. The GCW Zero is (in my opinion) now one of them:

A GCW Zero port (following the porting guidelines) of The Ur-Quan Masters 0.7.0 is available here:

An older, but better tested version without positional audio and without addon support, but packaged together with voices and 3DO music, can be found here:
Installation of Addons:
The official addons (voices, 3DO music and remixes - I recommend to at least get the voices, they add greatly to the game) can simply be put in the ~/.uqm/addons folder (if the folder doesn't exist, feel free to create it) and enabled/disabled in the game settings menu.

For unofficial addons a little manual work is required. These need to be unpacked in the ~/.uqm/useraddons folder (so that their .rmp files are directly in the useraddons folder, not a subfolder of it), and the paths in the .rmp files have to be edited to point to "useraddons" instead of the addon name.
Positional Audio: After switching to the OpenAL audio driver in the advanced settings, one can enable positional audio in the sound settings now.
Addon System: The previously undocumented addon system has been extended. As a consequence of this, the voices and 3DO music packages are now optional.

The keyboard mappings are not part of the source code, but are defined within the uqm-0.7.0-content.uqm file, which is part of the game content.
