Hey, hi there.
I'm not exactly a newcomer to Traveller .... but I'm interested in finding a version of Traveller that will fit my needs.
Let me explain:
Currently I own a copy of T4 that I purchased about 5-6 years ago. I was quite intrigued by Traveller's reappearance (at that time) and planned to purchase a number of the supplements, with the goal of pursuing Traveller roleplaying actively. Unfortunately, it failed to meet my expectations. The core book painted a picture of a very retro, 'white-bread', Space Opera Rpg that I could really find no connection with. The supplements were like bizarre engineering manuals.... barely coherent and visually nauseating. Suffice to say, T4 was tossed on my bookshelf and ignored.
Many years prior I had a copy of Megatraveller... but I recall not being very impressed with it as well.... and it 'disappeared' sometime within the past decade.

What I'm looking for is a fairly 'generic', accessible SF rpg that will allow me to easily present games from either a Hard or Soft SF standpoint. I'm not really interested in utilizing Traveller's pre-conceived setting.... too Space Opera for me... (kind of an odd mixture of 'uplifted' aliens and Dune, IMO). But rather just a 'tool' to present a variety of settings with ease.
I'm also not motivated to purchase the GURPS version of Traveller. I'm familiar with the system and find it too detail-oriented for my tastes.
Are there any recommendations or insight that anyone could provide?
