A max TL would save a lot of time editing TLs for the Referee with a specific campaign in mind.
It may be worth using something analogous to the "Settlement" option of the the Zhodani Base's random subsector generator.

Art, SectorMaker definitely has sped up my system creation, but I am getting some weird results when it comes to primary and planet characteristics. One example would be two Dwarf stars in a binary system with habitable zones. Another is an M7 with a tidally locked planet that has a dense atmosphere and is a water world. That one just does not compute. I will have to see if that is a problem with the T5 star system generator. Right now, I am putting the planets where I want them, with the characteristics that I want, and figure that I will correct the Stellar type in writing up the planet description.

Those sound possible to me, but that's the way the rules are.

When you generate a world, first take a look at the stellar data and if you don't like it you can just delete it and make a new one before you do other edits.

I had not thought of that. Thanks for the tip.

I also need to spend some time computing how long a year would be on some of the distance planets orbiting an O, B, or A class star. Those years are going to be quite long, with implications as to the length of summer and winter depending on the axial tilt.
