Default Verifying The Astrogation Task for Mongoose 2e

Traveller5 Core Book 2 Starships > How Ship Systems Work > Jump. This chapter was fantastic reading. Maybe some of my favorite Traveller reading yet.

An interesting element was the Astrogation Task Verification event. Has this been talked about and depicted in the Mongoose 2e rules?

I thought I was going to find it in Highguard, didn't see it. Then I thought it might have been covered in Journal of the Travellers's Aid Society Vol 3 (for Mongoose 2e), wasnt there either. Maybe it is in one of these and I missed it? or maybe its not considered yet.

Is Verifying the Astrogation Task a Traveller5 original concept? Or has this appeared in other Traveller versions already?

Is there a Traveller5 to Mongoose 2e formula for general task difficulties, maybe?

I haven't delved too deep into Traveller5 yet. I read too far and get overwhelmed but it. Little by little. This question opened up the Traveller5 idea of Uncertain Tasks. That was interesting!

When Mongoose 1e came out, I tried putting together a list of different things to build up to a modifier that the Astrogator would have to roll against to get the right Jump vector.

Consequently, what I mostly found is that I suck at Math. Or at least building equations. It never really went anywhere.

But I might buy T5 just to see what that looks like.
I like my Traveller like the women I unfortunately usually date: Cold, Harsh, and Full of Drama.
