I've had a hard time reconcilling the idea of Tech Levels being used by mundane adventurers. I would think that only Scouts on survey, Sociologists and other technical scientists would use the different Tech classifications. I would think that TAS would simplify it for the average citizen. So I came up with this:

Cultural Classifications

Culture A is Primitive (spears, axes, fire, and bows and arrows is about it, and the culture is found on only part of the planet) - example: Neandertal

Culture B is Planetary (cultures that extend across a planet) - example: The British Empire

Culture C is Stellar (a culture that spans a solar system) - example: the Regina system

Culture D is Interstellar (able go between star systems) - example: The Imperium

Culture E is Galactic (the culture spans the entire Galaxy). - example: possibly the Ancients

Culture F is InterGalactic (the culture travels between galaxies)

Culture G is Universal

Earth right now stands at the top end of Planetary (Culture B) and just about to break into Stellar (Culture C).

Let me know what you think,

I like my Traveller like the women I unfortunately usually date: Cold, Harsh, and Full of Drama.
