I did too. I also thought fact two of piracy options are identical in function just to make 3 categories was stupid in SCOUNDREL which is book where the slavers should have been. And that Scavengers should have been Merchant option, salvage is not criminal, neither is Barbarian also stuck in SCOUNDREL.

But they may have been written too far apart or suffered all too usual Mongoose too loose standards. i.e. how about detailed index of contents.

I don't own, not have read Merchant Prince, but I agree with some of the answers that MGT is not so OTU oriented as this to be a problem (there can be many universes where slavery is not illegal).

Anyway, to answer your question (about OTU 3I):

From JTAS 14 (Laws and Lawbreakers), Page 20 (High Justice).

The prosecutors of high courts of the Imperium concern themselves with crimes that would affect worlds in more than one subsector. These include the capture, transportation and possesion of slaves...

I'm not afraid about bullets, what scares me is the speed at which they're incoming.

TY. Fixed now.

That's the problem when you trust correction to a machine. Maybe those solomani fanatics from SSMM are right...

Slave traders can exist in TRAV universe but will be outside Imperium in general.
That's fair enough, but in that case THIRD IMPERIUM material (and Bab5, HS, JD, BtV, CS, etc. material) ought to include sections that set out which MGT rules that apply and which don't apply, e.g. "The Slaver career is not available to characters from the Imperium".

Alternatively, or even in addition to that, MGT rules might have sections pointing out which rules apply to Traveller universes and which don't (Traveller being, after all, the flagship of the line (or so I assume?)). "Only jump drives up to J6 are available in straight Traveller universes"[*].
[*] Of course, being generic, MGT rules include higher jump drives than J6, right? And contrariwise, the basic rules don't include anything that is TU specific, like distinctive alien races and suchlike, right? Being as they are SO generic.

Yeah Hans you nailed it. Except for those pesky Fission Plants, Hyperspace Drives, Teleport Drives and Warp Drives on Core Rule book page 109. Or maybe those do it yourself Aliens on Pg 41. Or the augments or robots. So yes 99% of Core rules is aimed at Classic Traveller 3I. A pity this thread is titled MERCHANT PRINCE. My comment referred to supplemental products not labeled THIRD IMPERIUM. My error for being unclear.

And yes the non "Traveller" stuff should be so marked like the over TL-15 products in Central Supply Catalog for example.
