MusicHyperspeed shares something with Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri. Specifically, they both have the same theme song. It seems that Jeffery L. Briggs, who did musical work on Hyperspeed (and many other MicroProse games), and was the Executive Producer and one of two people who did the soundtrack for Alpha Centauri, remixed the Hyperspeed theme song for SMAC's main menu.
