Battlefield Evolution - Mongoose doesn't even need a license for this one, as they already have it for their wargame. But surely, the Traveller rules as have been so far presented, would be ideal for a near future, gritty, modern militaristic game? Perhaps the rpg setting could focus more on covert/espionage stories, but above all, that'd be a setting I've been searching for for quite a while actually. Beyond D20 (and SpyCraft) we don't have many games around that can do this at the moment.

Surely this should be renamed Striker Evolution...

Nope it was the "Donny and Marie Show" back in the 70s and it is important now because Marie Osmond is on "Dancing with the Stars".

Lorne Greene was the guest star and they cast played members of the Cattlestar Overactica trying to get their "herd" to "Texas" it was sort of a Bonanza/Galactica spoof. Very funny as I remember (it as 30 years ago).

I'd like to see a frontier space setting with bugs and predator-style aliens.

Closer to a Traveller theme...

A Near Space Campaign (years leading up to 2100) lots of international rivalry to create the Jump Drive to take mankind to the Stars and a conspiracy at the root of it all. A type of X files with aging geratric nazis running around in a spycraft/Moonraker world to aid or help mankind reach the stars.

A series that could be grafted onto the Ancient milieux, Marc has indicated that this would be akin to Lensmen

A cyberpunk 2020 milieu but set on multiple worlds.

Noble Houses, a feudal setting that would take the history of France or Japan and put it into the distant future or simply be a sourcebook on the rise and fall on not English feudalism.

Red Dawn, what if the Soviets won the Cold War by exhuasting American military spending & putting a Man on the Moon first and persuaded much of Western Europe to join a bloc non-aligned with Eurocommunism even taking root in the Russian heartland making Perestroika & the Prague Spring a success. The Soviets being the power in space and the rest of the world relaying on their own initiatives to take back the skies.

Nazi Dawn, similar to above but what if V4 rockets bombed New York City, Washington DC, Montreal, Ottawa in 1944 forcing an American surrender.

The worlds that Elizabeth Moon has created...although, I like her writing I cannot see an RPG in it.

Blue Planet Expanded Universe - surely the wormhole must go further than Earth & Pseodion
As long as there are stars in the sky and dreams about the universe, as long as there are chronicles of high adventure to recount, there will always be Traveller.

Alan Dean Foster's "Humanx Commonwealth" would be a really nifty RPG setting, IMO. It's very much old-school space opera with a lot of inventive stuff strewn about the universe to play with.

Also, I think the TV series "Andromeda" would be a good RPG setting also. Post-fall Systems Commonwealth isn't that too far afield from post-fall TNE-era Third Imperium, really in terms of storyline. Plus, you get the sentient starships to play with.

GURPS Commonwealth wasn't bad. But it wasn't great, either.

Andromeda wouldn't be bad, except it appears to be TL18-20 or so.
