Default How Retro ?

One thing I've been thinking of over the past few weeks is How Retro would you go in your TU ?

I watched the entire Firefly series last week and I must admit I like the retro, "pure TL9" feel of some of the technology, especially when intermixed with some of the higher TL stuff (in Ariel or Trash and others).

This link in ShapeShifter's sig reminded me of it http://dreamsofspace.nfshost.com/1952spacepatrol.htm

plus those Russian drawings in the thread accusing the Keiths of being pinko-commies ! (Cool pix nonetheless).

Some of the Captain Proton stuff in ST:Voyager isn't half-bad either, I could see his ship or Chuck Yeager's test ship in the intro to ST:Enterprise being re-done to Traveller TL9 specs. Same with Serenity's internal computers and sensors, just plain old...er...plain.

GURPS Space 3e had some nice retro-tech drawings too. Plus the stuff you can find on the web.

What's your feelings on it ?
