It doesn't have to move forward much though - what are you expecting, random leaps forward by 20 years at a time?!

The current rate of advance (essentially a 1:1 ratio with real time) is perfectly reasonable, IMO.

I think we are all kinda expecting that all the gaming companies adopt the old GDW/DGP practice of dating things according to the real world calendar.

eg. 2004 = 1004

Somehow, GDW & DGP were never consistant with this dating scheme because of production delays but it gave a real sense of movement within a story arc. (From what I understand, story arcs do not really exist in any other form of Traveller other than TNE Mk I...but I could be wrong.)

Well, it was just new year of 1121 in teh TNS reports, so I think it's more that
2004 AD = 1121.
