Question Grand Tour Scenarios for a one shot

In about a months time I will have an opportunity to GM a one shot scenario for a bunch of players that have never played Traveller before.

This will mostly be an introduction to the traveller universe for these players, who are experienced RPGists, but have never played Traveller before. It is unlikely this will lead to a campaign but may lead to future scenarios.

I have it in mind to play a scenario from "The Grand Tour" campaign published by DPG in the Travellers' Digest.

I have four players signed up, I like the characters from the Grand Tour, the group are mostly looking for role playing opportunities, I think the Grand Tour format (with the players as tourists) allows me to introduce elements of the Traveller universe without it seeming too strange that I am having to go into lecture mode.
One possible weakness of the adventures is that they seem to start with quite lengthy text.. mini stories in effect and also seem quite anti-climatic.. but I guess I could build on that or try to role play the intros

I have a few back copies of TD and am willing/eager to source more if needed be.

I was thinking of running

Terra
#13: Terra Incognita

or

Kusyu
#17: The Blade of Koiyekh


Has anyone ever run one of these adventures or would recomend any of the other Grand Tour adventures?
