Default Baseline OTU

Let's focus on this for a bit, because I'm in the mood to draw up a list of baseline features of the OTU, and COTI is the right place to draw from the wisdom of the grognards.

I want to:
  • quote sources as much as possible.
  • avoid things that don't matter so much. For example, whether the ton is 13.5 or 14 cubic meters.
  • leverage the combined knowledge and experience of Traveller grognards.

Robject's Fledgling OTU Reference: [HTML].

POSSIBLE reference lists

Each of these are separate webpages for the "Links" section.
  • UWP sources.
  • Places sources.
  • Alien Races sources.
  • Characters sources.
  • Corporations sources.
  • Polities sources.
  • Technology sources.

Each would comprise a list of data such as:

[Person name (no ranks or titles), Race, Keyword (used similar to Chronology), Location/Milieu, Source, Pages, Details, Canonicity]
[Race name, Category (minor, major, minor Human, etc), Location/Milieu, Source, Pages, Details, Canonicity]
[Place name, Race, Keyword, Location/Milieu, Source, Pages, Details, Canonicity]
[Item name, Race, Keyword (skill, science, or category?), Location/Milieu, Source, Pages, Details, Canonicity]
