Yes I do like it. It retains the simple rules of CT while adding some additional material (such as the use of grenades in combat) that I like. (And yes CT fans, I know that gernades are covered in Book four, but military weapons should have been included in the basic game, not in a supplement.)

GregFoster63 Citizen

Real Name: Greg Foster (imaginative screen name I chose, eh?)
Military Service: None, but I did consider the USMC equivalent to ROTC in college. But, I didn't know what I wanted to do with my life at that point, so I thought it wouldn't be good to tie myself to something unless I really wanted it.
Residence: Columbus, Ohio
Profession: Computer programmer/analyst/consultant
Interests: Reading, painting miniatures, RPGs, playing with my cats, landscaping the lawn of my new house.

Favorite Traveller: MegaTraveller because of the background material. But all versions have something I like, and I am planning on running a T20 campaign/series for my group (they are familiar with D&D rules).
Favorite Class: Hmmmm, I think they are all cool, but the military ones (Navy, Marines, Army) if I had to choose.
Favorite Aliens: Aslan
Player/Refereee: Referee, since I have all of the Traveller stuff in my group, plus I like to referee.
