Pardon if this is an old topic, but Im gearing up to run Traveller for my current group, and Im wondering whether to use the full thing, or just the basic book character creation.

The way I see it:

advantages of the full books 4-7:
More skilled characters. (this can be an advantage anyways)
Much more detail in your characters background and history.
More flavour in whether you were a marine or scout or whatnot.

More rules to remember (and small, subtle differences).
Not scaled well with "citizens of the imperium".
Using the alien books with this makes the complexity increase pretty rapidly.
Speed of character creation much lower.

views and what do you guys do ?
