A fair question, all the way around. But this is essentially the reason. T4 was dead on arrival, even though there were the rare diamonds in its deepest, most troubled "rough ". Mostly because of the timing of its delivery, and helped not at all by its almost complete lack of editorial competence.

But as an RPG gamer, and worse, a 'Traveller', I don't think the brand can afford another poor showing as an armed & xenophobic niche in a niche market of niches. Plus, we need to support our local FLGS if and where they continue to exist. Better to buy another new Traveller product than picking up Turd: The Flushing or some other case of buyers remorse looking for a homeless shelter. Trust me, I have shelves and shelves of those too.
