Depending on what rule set you use... yes you can die in character creation. However in the one rule set instead of dying you are severely injured in the second year of the term and do not get skills or any other benefit from that term, and you are kicked out of the service you are in. (That is the one I normally use)
And by the book all skills are random... The player gets to pick which chart to roll the skill on, but it is based on the roll as to what you get...
But were you thinking high(5+), mid(3-4), low(1-2) level (How many terms served before play)
Only the main rule book? or can we use the expanded books.
(When using the expanded books you generally get more skills which is better all round from my experience)
I would like to play a marine (preferably using mercenary book)
I only have the Classic Traveller intro book, and I can't seem to download the one you posted. Apparently I had a 4shared account at one time and have forgot the password and haven't received the email to reset...
Edit: I have it now

I had a discussion via twitter with a guy that has been a traveller player since the beginning so I am more in tune now and at least have a direction.
So, what I am thinking is 4-6 players, you have a ship, you may have a patron, and there will be a basic underlying theme to your missions but you are independent operators. I will most likely use the Spinward Marches as a setting.
So give me a week to read up on things and we shall move from there. If anyone wanting to play can create a character, go ahead, it may help me tailor the campaign.
Level? I was thinking MID(3-4)terms served before we start with everyone mustering out of last career.
Tech - I am thinking around 14. I am open to thoughts on this from experienced players.
