Most Traveller planets you'd generate using the basic system aren't habitable either with out a space suit or other environmental gear. If you need to wear a filter mask, the planet is not habitable for you. Red dwarf planets tend to be eyeball planets if they are in the habitable zone, they are tidally locked with the star they are orbiting, there is a zone on the planet's surface that is most habitable. PCs are going to see red alot.

Non habitable planets can be anywhere in the system, you need a spacesuit to survive on its surface so it doesn't need to be in the habitable zone

Yeah, that's pretty good. I just have to assign orbit numbers to them, find whichever orbit number is the habitable zone, put the mainworld there, and any worlds that come before the mainworld are in the inner system, and the worlds after are in the outer system, and prior to that I just roll to see whether the system is solo, binary, or trinary, then roll for the orbit locations of the companion star(s) relative to the primary then I roll for system generation three times, the most massive star is the primary, and it is not always the brightest star, for instance the primary could be a black hole, white dwarf or pulsar.

Here is the table from the classic book 6 Scouts, that I have expanded to include orbits to -6 so red dwarf systems can be detailed.
