Yes, it's extremely well written, and yes, it's got severe problems.

I've started in to trying to fix it, preserving as much as possible, by adding in other items Joe Fugate wrote, mostly comments in the Traveller Q&A articles of TD 19 and 21.

However, for the life of me, I'm stumped on one thing: For the frozen watch, he calculates "5", and then multiplies it by 88. Where's the 88 come from? Any ideas? :confused:

Yet another error.

The 88 segments should be 75 segments.

The text states that there are 75 crew segments.

Of course, this now throws off the frozen watch calculations.

5 crewmen x 75 segments = 375 frozen watch, not 440.

Which now throws off the medical section.

Medical: (359/120) + (375/20) = 22 not 25.

Since it didn't work, we can expect some changes in a corrected version.

Actually, I've got a corrected version... (I think...)

And Harry -- I already caught that error.

I'll see about posting it up after I finish cleaning up the "article".
