Maybe the reason AI is not in the Traveller universe is the old joke

A group of scientists create the ultimate computer. They feed it every bit of info known to man, give it heuristic programming to truly replicate full sentience and set it to work to ask the ultimate question: Is there a God?

Every time they try, the answer, just before they pull the plug, is "THERE IS NOW!"

The reason I'm asking about 3d space is not specifically to screw around with the OTU, but because Mongoose Traveller is supposed to be a "universal" set of SF rules which should be usable with other milieu - specifically Starship Troopers, currently, but doubtless tons of others.

To my knowledge, the Traveller OTU is the only one to be burdened with a 2d starmap - I would presume that at least addressing the issue of 3d space would therefore be essential in a "universal" ruleset.

I'm aware that it breaks jump drive as it currently stands. The issue is, is Mongoose's claim to universality just lip service, or are we going to see something that can cope with more complex starmaps? I'd be completely happy if Mongoose were just producing a new set of rules for the Traveller OTU - that's fine. But that's not what they're saying - so I'm curious... ;-)
