MOO1 is a great game. It is, however, standing on the shoulders of another, more obscure game, Pax Imperia. Pax Imperia was an awesome game for its time but, unfortunately, was fairly buggy and released on the Apple. Despite its bugginess, the sheer size and easy-to-learn complexity of the game almost mirrors that of MOO1. It'd be nice if GOG could get Pax Imperia (a non-bugged version, mind) or its successor Pax2 but I doubt that'll ever happen. The Pax Imperia AI seemed to be much more difficult than either of the MOO games but, then again, it has been a VERY long time since I've played either.
