Was just reading the X-Com Wiki page and looked at the "Sighting in other fandom" section. Personally I don't know how to add to the Wiki, but I have a great addition.

On the radio program "Sounds from Space" on Sirius XM "RawDawg Comedy", hosted by Fake Carl Sagan, the sound they use before taking a caller exactly the same as the sound effect used for Menus opening in X-Com.
Overwhelmed as one would be, placed in my position.
Such a heavy burden now to be the 'one'.
Born to bear and bring to all the details of our ending,
To write it down for all the world to see.

But I forgot my pen!

You need to register an account (costs nothing) to be able to edit the pages. Just one of the anti-spam precautions taken.

X-COM actually uses a lot of stock sound effects that you'll recognize in many gamers and films (particularly sci-fi).

The sound effect for the gas cannons in TFTD is the same as the rocket launcher in Goldeneye64. That was the first one I noticed.
