I don't know, but I can't really say that it died out, rather they usurped it with the House system and TNE. There was the transitionary module "Survival Margin" that acted as a bridge between the two, right? But how long was it between SM came out and the previous module came out? Meanwhile, Challenge was still going strong and had consistent Traveller content.

I just don't recall there being some long lull.
Eh, but Challenge and the other periodical that replaced JTAS had more gizmos and settings; cybernetics, sickness, critters, that new bodily hit-chart, and their version of AMBER Zones, stuff like that. The few issues that I bought there was one adventure about going after pirates, and it was pretty prosaic CT oriented stuff.
