The data points we know:

1) The Guys at Mongoose have been playing Traveller (edition not specified)
2) They said it would be based on CT

3) They simplified d20 not once, not twice, but SEVERAL times (B5, Conan, SST, Judge Dredd)
4) They can do starship combat playably. (B5 RPG, B5 minis game)
5) They like minis wargames
6) They have had quality control issues of every stripe.

So we can PROBABLY expect that:
They are unlikely to go all gear-head on us.
They are likely to do a striker III
We can expect clean, simple rules. (possibly with major errata issues)
MoTrav is likely to be a new development from CT
