InMemorium's Tips for UFO Defense and TFTD. These are just the things I learned through speedrunning both original X-Com titles. Important for both titles: SMOKES -As much as smokes are a love hate relationship for me, smokes are The faster you capture a Commander, the faster you get end game.

Stun rods are actually quite useful. After first terror mission, if you have captured a Deep One, you can skip every terror mission thereafter. You really need to still land at every terror mission the abort.
You lose fewer points! You never need to attempt any other missions for early game unless you are low on funds and need fast cash. At a minimum, you need to see the aliens on those crafts.
Any thing else is "doable" with Floaters being the easiest. The faster you capture a Commander, the faster you get end game research finished.
Also, completing a Very Large craft mission will give you some great bootie - many power sources, alloys, elerium, weapons, etc. Most you can sell for a huge income boost. The VL Ships are better missions because you can control the entire map much easier. In TFTD - nothing.
If you really want to prevent Artifact sites, sure - attempt those. Unless you are feeling overpowered OR if you need a Lobsterman Commander - avoid base attacks.

You'll do nothing but watch guided torpedos hit you in the face for a few turns at some point during the mission. GEAR -my soldiers' loadouts are surprisingly simple for speedrunning. If you have commanders already, no more tasers required. Place them in the middle of 3 tile choke points.
I'll let you look into research trees so I don't spoil it for you. The faster you can shoot down everything except Very Large craft, the better. Experiments have spawned numerous hybrid races. It is a Sectoid, our former foes, but changed by surgical methods and implants to be an aquatic creature. Vestigial lungs allow the breathing of air and limited surface mobility. There are cybernetic implants throughout the body, enhancing the strength of its atrophied limbs and the function of its organs.
As all the members of this race are identical, we may hypothesise that these creatures are clones. This creature is extremely powerful and fast in the undersea world.

Gillmen are a fully fledged race, there being male and female specimens of varying ages. They are unlike the majority of the underwater aliens as they bear none of the signs of genetic alteration or surgical deformation It is possible we are looking at some ancient branch of our own species.
In a time when dinosaurs roamed these creatures lived, the Gillmen- amphibious, intelligent and strong. The cataclysm that ended the reptile rule on this planet forced these creatures into a symbiotic relationship with the newly arrived aliens. A small electronic device is lodged in the skulls of the creatures.
The similarities between this creature and the Earth lobster have earned it the nickname of Lobsterman with the X-Com troops. This is a behemoth of the deep.
A carefully designed fighting creature of incredible strength and practically invulnerable to missile fire. Its pincers alone can crush steel. Powerful muscles ripple around a titanium skeleton, a sophisticated targeting system with multi-band scanning ability is hooked directly into the creature's brain.
Its multiple eyes are protected by harder than steel plastics and it is clear that when well deployed by their masters these creatures are all but unstoppable.
Buried deep within its body are devices of unknown construction and function.
Hundreds are birthed, in massive breeding vats deep in the heart of the Alien colonies. Vastly more powerful than a man, the Tasoth is a true alien and its behaviour and carnivorous nature unmatched on the planet. The Tasoth often forms the spearhead of an alien attack and never seems to shrink from the fight even in the face of overwhelming odds. Inside the body cavity is a small power unit, but no identifiable organs.
The power is transmitted throughout the body by a Bio-electric transmission system. The whole body lacks bones or any other supporting structure. Once dead the power stops and the creature becomes a lifeless rag doll of oozing alien flesh and fluids. The only other internal construction is a pair of ceramic cells, which if energised briefly revive the creature. We have encountered several variations of this creature. After extensive research we conclude that these are manufactured by the invaders.
Swelling their ranks when fresh human stock has been captured. Each of these sub-humans is armed with an electrical energy discharge powerful enough to kill an aquanaut.
The human brain is massively altered to accommodate control electronics and the Alien cortex. All vestiges of the human body seem lost save one: The surgical graft appears to allow the alien foetus to consume the human host as it grows.
The tough skin of the creature appears to be a non-organic, metallic mesh, extremely strong and flexible. The resulting cross breed is strong, fast and utterly under the control of the aliens. The conversion process requires total limb loss. All four of them. The sequel cranks up the fear factor with some of its alien redesigns but an expansion could really bring the terror by doing what so many of us expected in the first place.
Look to the waters, those untouched dark waters that take up so much of the map and yet contribute so little. New tech, new environments, new classes, new threats. The original Terror From the Deep was always intended to be something of a stopgap while Gollop and company worked on a more intricate sequel. As an expansion, that stopgap nature would be fitting — one last gulp of breath and a trip into the abyss before the real journey continues.
It was about the end of all things. Of course I wanted it and I wanted it to be good, but did it really need to happen when the original was right there? In some ways, X-COM:
