But Agent Of The Imperium isn't a story set in the Galaxiad era, but in the later half of the Third Imperium, as far as I can see?

Now, how much, exactly, does the T5 book reveal about the era of 1900, other than the year? Half a page? One page? Two hundred pages?

Edit: Googling, I found this:

https://zho.berka.com/tag/the-galaxiad/

This seems to imply that it basically just contains a map?

Nothing specific I'm afraid. In fact the word Galaxiad appears just three times, in the copyright statement, as a footnote, and in the index.

I see. Well, thank you. I'll have to wait for Marc Miller to publish a full setting description then.

Leaks from the inner circle, a handful of paragraphs in T5.09, Marc's teaser, MGT basic set.

A big and interesting note: Some of Marc's short fiction makes Regina a minor world... whether that sticks around or not... no clue

The Traveller 5 printed BBB has a general map of the Charted Space Galaxy. This map is not in the DriveThru PDF.

You can see this map and general locations of the Essaray and others at the travellermap.com website. Zoom out to see the entire galaxy to see the hints of what may be.

Also if you play with settings for Millieu, there is a M1900 sector map. Its actual validity as canon, I do not know. Rob Eaglestone is credited so maybe kinda sorta?

Glad to see you back, Nathan Brazil!

Rob's Marches (and Gvurrdon for that matter) for 1900 are a work in progress. You're watching the sausage being made, as it were.

A, found that option! Thanks!

The Republic of Regina, eh? Well, it seems the year 1900 is more filled with pocket empires than one big polity. I like that.

Pocket empires ignored by the larger polity, as they're not worth trading with.... Too low tech to contribute, and with H1 drives dominating, left to their own devices...

T5 has multiple jump drive types.

Regular jump drives go 1-9 parsecs.
Hop drives go 10-90 parsecs and are TL 17. As a J1 drive would be Jump-1, I assume an H1 is a Hop-1 and can travel up to 10 parsecs in a single jump.
Skip drives go 100-900 parsecs, and are TL 20.
There are also Leap (1000s of parsecs, TL 22), Bound (10000s, TL 26), and Skip drives (100000s. TL 29). More powerful ones are also possible.

Hop, Skip, and more powerful drives do have additional restrictions, however.
