The great propaganda campaign of the Fifth Frontier War convinced Traveller fanon that the Imperium were now the good guys...
Yes--and even much of the CT material on the Fifth Frontier War indicated that the tech advantage was much more slim than in the past, and (apparently) it was Norris's strategic skill and perhaps his feel for the best leaders that led to victory, such as it was. Not 3I high tech wizardry.
There are three types of Travellers with Math-3+: those who can count, and those who cannot.

Our Traveller Universes clearly are at variance. Blessed be the variance!

IMTU, TL 8 and 9 tend to be more common than presented.

Especially on hostile-environment worlds.

Regarding fossil fuels, there are really smart folks who seriously consider the possibility of abiogenic oil: organics created by the heat and pressure at depth from non-organic carbon that would tend to rise to the top of plutonic intrusions. The amount of oil known would represent a teeny-tiny fraction of carbon in the crust and mantle. It's a hypothesis that's very hard to test.
