Trivia

Brian Reynolds on his contribution to the game (his fifth):

"This was really Sid's game (I balanced the scenarios and beat all comers at multiplayer), but he went on vacation for a couple weeks toward the end and we all worked around the clock to sneak stuff in. I got my comeuppance in kind the next year on Alpha Centauri."

--Interview in Computer Games Magazine, June 2000
