Default Heroic Traveller

So I'd like your opinions and brainstorms. I want to write some Traveller scenarios that are heroic, and for some reason I'm having trouble getting the players into the middle of the action in key, heroic roles. How do I do this?

As I see it, heroic scenes don't railroad the players into one course of action, but they could (should?) be obstacles which dovetail nicely with the players' goals -- whatever those are.

And that's part of my problem. Players set their own goals. And I'm having trouble seeing how heroic situations will interest players -- who also may be risk-averse due to the deadly nature of Traveller.

I am just having trouble seeing what I can write down that can apply to the random players I'm going to get around the table.
