The Dark Star is the song that plays while you're flying on Flammie after the Sunken Fortress has risen from the sea.

This song is track 28 on the official soundtrack, but there is a second version of the song that is not on the soundtrack. This version lacks the echoing sound of the original. (Note: I don't remember where this version plays, I think it's when you first watch the Sunken Fortress raise.)


The American and Japanese soundtrack titles are very similar.
