Downloaded it, browsed through it (hey, for 80 Euro-Cent it is a steal) and I must say from the first look I like it. A lot better than the Mongoose Robots since:

+ Based on the MegaTraveller construction system with energy tracking
+ Contains EXAMPLE robots!!

Well an it fills the last blank spot in Megas build system.

Hey, I'm down as a contributor! (Not 100% sure what bits I contributed), but hey! after 25+ years I finally have my name on an official Traveller product!

(Spelled correctly, too!! )

@Hyphen - I lifted your great essay on proportions and volumes of parts of the human body for the pseudo-bio configuration rules. And I got the spelling of your name right after you intervened when I complained that I couldn't find you on a Google search.

Your essay was a key inspiration for me to start and complete this project.

Thank you sir! I'm humbled (and happy!) that my scribblings have inspired someone to that extent!

(Roll on that MT re-write! ;-) )

"Kryptonite, silver bullet, Buffy, what's it gonna take to keep you in the grave?"

My opinion of anything M-T showing up. The unholy trinity of Rebellion, New Era and M-T drove me out of Traveller for over a decade.

Ok, use the GURPS Traveller background instead - with either the CT or MT rules!

(P.S. Tag, you're it!)

Congratulations on a great bit of work (just bought it:.)

I loved what Marc Miller said there, I thought that was really, really cool that he liked your work and that he felt it took him back to the early days. AWESOME

Thanks mcgurk! It's funny, but being 40 years old, I still felt like a thrilled teenager when Marc replied in person. Ah, well, as my parents will tell you, I was totally obsessed as a teenager with the game, running it regularly at school lunch times.
