I would totally love to compile a soundtrack for our Eclipse game sessions, something like themes from famous scifi movies or series combined with classical music... Awesome would be a change of tone when the ships are attacking.
Too bad I don't have any composing talents

Has anybody had any similar ideas? Or can anybody suggest some pieces of music that could suit to the game's atmosphere properly?

Spacey ambient all the way! Carbon Based Lifeforms and Solar Field for example. If you need more bass when fighting, AES DANA works well

I can make a playlist on Spotify if you're interested.

We game with contemporary minimalist classical. Suits the game, and thinking, well.

In our last game of Eclipse, we had the full Battlestar Galactica soundtrack on loop. It worked wonderfully.

I'd be tempted to play the entire EVE Online soundtrack.

This is pretty cool. The longer tracks (e.g. Main Galactic Theme 1, 2, 3; Hostile Ambassador 1, 2, 3; Battle Theme 1, 2, 3) are pretty good for looping during play. I also played through all the race tracks and other shorter tracks, and I assigned each of the MOO faction themes to their Eclipse counterparts (by my impression of which Eclipse faction matches the audio track):

Eridani Empire = Bulrathi theme
Hydran Progress = Alkari theme
Planta = Mrrshan theme
Descendants of Draco = Darlock theme
Mechanema = Elerian theme
Orion Hegemony = Ground Combat theme

Terran Directorate = Antaran theme
Terran Union = Klackon theme
Terran Federation = Human theme
Terran Republic = Trilarian theme
Terran Conglomerate = Gnolam theme
Terran Alliance = Psilon theme

Wardens, Sentinels & Keepers of Magellan = Meklar theme
The Exiles = Galactic Council theme
Rho Indi Syndicate = Sakkra theme
Enlightened of Lyra = Silicoid theme

You can use the Ship Design theme as a lead-in, and when the game is over, play the Science theme track for a little fanfare and nice final cadence.

Two Steps from Hell. They've got lots of good 2-3 min tracks that feel epic for space. Heart of Courage is the song they used for the Mass Effect 2 trailer.

My favorite sci-fi is the Advent Rising soundtrack (video game).

Halo stuff is cool, if recognizable (some people don't like recognizable gaming music, too distracting).

I also endorse the Battlestar Galactica soundtracks.

I don't want happiness by halves, nor is half of sorrow what I want. Yet there's a pillow I would share, where gently pressed against a cheek like a helpless star, a falling star, a ring glimmers on the finger of a hand.
