I've used Triplanetary as the space combat system for Traveller, it works well--if you aren't tied to things like High Guard. It's a great replacement for Book 2 combat, but if you really want to get down to fiddly bits, it's a harder fit to make.

Given that you like Ogre/GEV, and were intrigued by War in the Ice, did you ever try the Metagaming Microgame Ice War?

Sorry for the thread necromancy.

Actually, SJG did once integrate Ogre with Triplanetary, but not the way you wanted. It was called Star Fist

The ships moved around the map using Triplanetary movement.
The map was of the area around a huge armed-to-the-teeth asteroid on its way to attack Earth, the "Star Fist." In typical Ogre fashion, player 1 has an entire fleet while player 2 just has the Star Fist. When a ship scores a weapon strike on the Star Fist one of the asteroid systems is damaged. When the Star Fist scores a weapon strike on a ship, the ship is destroyed.
