Alpha Centauri is not a bad place to go, either. I suppose it's not technically a Civ game, but I've always looked at it as a sort of Civ 2.5.
I think it was implicitly intended as such, wasn't it? One of the endings of Civ2, IIRC, had you leaving the world to colonise another planet because our home planet was pretty hopeless. I'd always seen Alpha Centauri as the 'what happens next' game, though I know that isn't officially the case.

Alright, maybe only I thought that. Neat game though.
