Re: [Freelance Traveller] May/June 2020 Posted!

Excellent! I've been waiting for the article on Jump Masking and Interstellar Courses for a while now. By the way, did the author or one of the users here already do the math on the jump shadow the super-massive black hole at the center of our galaxy would/should produce? If the author did, it wasn...

I recommend that if you think you're getting incorrect links to the magazine on the "front page" (not the permalink), you either clear your browser cach...

In the particular case asked about (I'm the original querent from the TML), one position was made up, the other varied - there was one pilot-plus, one engineer-plus, one gunner-plus, and three new-position-o...
