Benefit of habitat is it gives us shelter on a hostile world.
Alternatives to habitat involve getting Hazardous Environment Vacc Suits, and/or using the ship as our more-permanent "base."
Downside to alternative: if we lose access to our ship, our lifespans become "however much life support remains in our suit."
I'd suggest dumping the habitat and stocking up on replacement air tanks / filters / etc instead, if you're looking to go the "long term excursion support" route.

As much as I have tried to get into the Traveller universe and produce a game for you, I am finding it impossible for me to carve out the time needed to prep and create an adventure in a rule system that I just learned. I gave it my best shot but this is not working. If I try to plow through to get the game going, I know I will be constantly doubting my work, double checking rules and all my other games will suffer.
Sorry to have got you all excited with the possibility but I can not in good conscience continue. Therefore I am bowing out as the Referee in this game.
Padre - you seem to know the rules really well, so I'd suggest that you take on the GM role.
Once again, sorry for this. I know I got your hopes up but better to stop now before we start than three or four posts in having the game fizzle.
Mixing the Church and the State (of being DM) is like heresy or a conflict of interest or something. It's unscrupulous.
That being said, I am an obedient Agent of the Scouts and thereby, shall adhere to my orders and complete the missions set forth for me by the command of the Imperial Padre Society.
Joking aside, that's fine with me. I can update you with my invisible character details soon, but not at the moment, as some are saved on a drive which will be installed on my new computer, which has not yet arrived.
To the group: I'm not sure what kind of time I will have to post in the near future. It is likely I will be able to participate fully, I just want you to be aware that I have various life situations which may or may not require my immediate and prolonged attention in the near future. I will try to advise you as this becomes an issue. If you prefer to replace me as a result, I'm amenable to the idea.
