I think there may already be a post for this but it was so long and drawn out i never found the answers.
I was fortunate recently to get hold of a copy of the Megatraveller Journal#4.
In it it talked about the end of the love affair between DGP and GDW.It also talked of all the Alien modules and adventures that were not to be.
Does anyone know if any of these were written before the split and are just waiting for some enterprising person to publish them in all their past DGP glory(great illustrations,layout etc)
In particular i'm thinking about the Omnesium quest and the Alien modules to follow ~1 and 2

Any thoughts/knowledge would be most welcome

Sorry to be a wet blanket, but don't hold your breath. AFAIK, all of DGP's material/copyrights are owned by a certain Mr S. and he's not likely to publish anything (nor reprint anything). Or that's the "word on the street" at least. Additionally, if someone wanted to buy those rights from him, he's apparently asking quite a steep price for them. So it might very well be that we never see DGP's material reprinted nor anything new published. Sad.

But this is all second hand information, something I've read from various places on the internet, I believe it is (or at least is close enough to) the truth, you can make your own mind. (This didn't help much, did it?)

Ahh, the age-old question of Traveller. I, too, wish there was an answer, but so far, there isn't.
