The Talosian Incident is a 20-level megawad for Doom II, created by The Black Star Coven, a team led by John Bye (Gestalt666). Released on June 19, 1997, it stood out against other WADs of the era for its strong emphasis on creating moody atmospheres, helped by a predominantly ambient soundtrack in the vein of Doom 64. It was named by Doomworld as one of the ten best mods of 1997.

All the music in the WAD is untitled, and was composed by John Bye, except for MAP16 by David Shaw (Tolwyn) and MAP14, which wasn't replaced.
