Do we risk “breaking” the character generation rewards if we make ships too easy to obtain?

I cannot find this situation covered in CT or Mongoose,
They are very rare to have even one of them. But they do pass through each other just fine. Don't let them touch any ships though.

Re: Traveller and ion storms

Ion storms in Star Trek are typically magnetic storms that interrupt power and can allow access to alternate dimensions and universes. Mirror, Mirror is a more famous example.

I'd say that Grandfather could have used Ion Storms for his own purposes.

Re: Is genetic material universal?

Cool. Thanks for the replies. I can’t see that The Solomani Hypothesis answers the question though. Is DNA universal? Does every organism across known space use DNA/RNA as genetic material, or are there different ways of coding inheritable traits? This is what I immediately thought when I read the ...

Re: Would The Imperium ever full trust theses Mercenaries?

Ok. So they're just noisy neighbors then. I'm not sure why your dreams of Uber Empires still involve The 3rd Imperium though? People don't mix Star Trek and Star Wars.
