I have an odd situation. A new Traveller player has rolled up a new character beforehand to save time.
The system is Classic Traveller and the marine character has completed eight terms, survived them all (age 50) suffered no ill effects from aging and ended up with an STR:12, DEX: 12 and DEX: 14?! It seems a bit improbable to me.

What I want to know is how do you figure the mathematical odds that over the course of twelve ageing checks that he made all of them plus all of his survival rolls granting the +2 modifier for a high endurance.

Here is the character
Str:12 Dex:12 End:14 Int:10 Edu:6 Soc:6 Psi:? He's a Force Commander age 50
Retired. And currently has 184,000 credits.
