"... maybe we need to make a "77 Reasons Classic Traveller is the Best Traveller" list.

We can make "Shotguns in Space" the first item.
Well, here goes nuthin...

Reasons Classic Traveller is the Best version:

1) Three words, "Shotguns in space".
2) Light dimmers can be used to simulate jump drive engagement.
3) Cuzz "Traveller GURPS" sounds like another name for motion sickness.
4) Very few cascade skills.
5) T20 sounds like a toothpaste ingredient.
6) Three more words, "Little Black Books".
7) The minimum required gaming materials for playing T:C are cheaper than any winning Yu-Gi-Oh deck.
8) Strephon who?
9) Lack of minute details, thus encouraging creative play.
10) Two little dice decide everything.
11) ...?

I love CT because back in the day, [img]smile.gif[/img] , when you wanted to use your own house rules, people mainly said "Ok" and not "But that's not canon/according to the rules/stupid/etc". It was, and is, simple and adaptable.

Vargas,

When you said,

... you were dead on target!

The only improvements that I'd like to see in something as good as Classic Traveller are corrections for spelling, grammar, and self-contradiction.

If something can not be directly extrapolated or interpolated from the original rules, then it becomes part of another game, like Traveller New Era and the rest.
