One of the things that I like about Traveller is that it is a game that can run settings from Stone-aged, right up to Ultra High Tech. The norm being somewhat more than modern aged technology... With FTL spaceships being available.
I took a look at the rules of the book. I'd be interested in playing a game of it, but I don't think I could GM one, especially since I am already committed to my SW game. Before I say yes I will play, I'd like to know a little more about the game's setting and plot.

I am largely in the same boat, as unhelpful as that is.
If you would like I can post links to the expanded books that I have....
As for setting, most of it is made as you go. Though there are some premade maps and such... Whenever I've played I've just made up a number of worlds before play and put them on the sector map as they are found.
Okay... since my other (Duchy) game is currently on hiatus, and I really want to play a Traveller game I will be the GM (Unless there are other takers?)
So for those who have looked over the basic book and are interested in playing what are your thoughts?

I found the rules were interesting an character creation is certainly comprehensive, there is very little on history, background and setting. There is mention of a Third Imperium but nothing on what is does or means. Is it like Space Rome? Is it like the Federation?
I am playing two space opera in the form of Serenity RPG games. Looking fir a pilot in one of them too. If I had something to work with for traveller, I might be interested but I'd have to start somewhere.
