What does everyone recommend? And why?

Must be turn-based and not real time at all.

Listen carefully.

Sins of a solar empire - Massive game, not quite realtime, not quite turn based, very unique. Kind of a large scale "homeworld". Nothing really like it.

Alpha centauri - Great game with many styles of gameplay, achieving victory through peace or transcendence is a neat little mechanic. Although an old game, it's still highly playable and enjoyable.

MoO1/2 - Nuff said.

I've heard Sins of a Solar Empire is very good if you like semi-RTS 4x games.

Galactic Civilization 2 is old, but good as well if you want a TBS 4x game.

Endless Space is pretty fun with friends. Take a look, it's turn based with a card-type combat system.

Sins is amazing but most of the game focuses on eXtermination, if you're looking for more balance in the X's.
Another idea I had was the spy/sniper being able to climb into the soldier's rocket launcher and be launched across the map, dealing more damage, but no splash.

Galactic Civilizations 2. Sure, it's old, but it still looks decent and has a great AI.

Reunion. It's real time but slow so it's okay. xD

Galactic Civilization 2 is easily the best sci-fi 4x out there.

Alpha Centauri is a very close second.

Speaking of Alpha Centauri...

Pandora First Contact is essentially a modern remake of the game.
