ACT was indeed a cleaned-up CT, centering on a DGP/MT-like task system, High Guard-like starship design, generally regularizing and rationalizing the core CT books into three rulebooks. I would suggest that it was a stripped-down MT, except the things which I think made MT distinctive were absent from ACT. MJD did a good job putting it all together.

And not all was in vain. The equipment section of ACT morphed into Mongoose Traveller's "Central Supply Catalogue".
