I would also get a copy of the LBB 101 starships and perhaps a copy of 76 Patrons to introduce your players to.

The Digest Group Publications' Megatraveller Alien books are great, and although I think only two were produced, there were six slated to come out. The two I have are Solomani & Aslan: The Rimward Races, and Vilani & Vargr: The Coreward Races. Also known colloquially as: "Rats & Cats" and "Cogs and Dogs", respectively. The DGP Starship Operator's Manual to me is an almost must read, but I guess not needed to get started. You don't need to bother with the Rebellion Sourcebook if you aren't running the Rebellion Era and just use MegaTraveller for the system. But the Rebellion Sourcebook and Hard Times are good reads if you want to know "what really happens" before TNE.

Hope that helps,

Dameon

The CORE or it:
Players Manual
Referee's Manual
Referee's Companion*
Imperial Encyclopedia

Ref's companion finished out the rules materials. It also explains vehicular and large scale combat. It should have been in the basic box. You CAN play without it, but it's worth the $10.

Hard Times, COACC are not essential, but are nice to have.

Reb SB is only useful if you need ot know how the 1116-1125 setting is militarily organized.

Fighting ships is Drekh.

The adventures are worthy, but non-essential.

CT supplements are useful.
