My hunch is that the CotI age range reflects your gaming group's but that the posters on the Mongoose company forums are a couple of years younger, maybe as many as ten. I.e., early 30s rather than early 40s.

Re. why does the game leave me cold: Nothing in the online discussions wowed me, and some issues turned me off. Especially (what I read about) chargen--that PCs get extra skills if their players come up with a shared back story for them. If that's true, that'd be a nod towards 2000s "storygaming" I can do without, especially in Traveller.
