The book is good for establishing the B5 tech in Traveller terms and the D20 sourcebooks will fill in the fluff.
I think the B5 D20 books are really good. Lots of material in them.

I checked out the sand cobra. Nice artwork. I still don't think one creature per pdf is worth it. One creature per page in a larger .pdf maybe 64 pages? Is cool. Along with MGT conversions for real critters like aligators. :D I was wondering I don't have the book in front of me, why a huge cobra mov...

The ships are a sort of odd neither fish nor fowl mix between Traveller and not-Traveller. Even without jump drives as in Traveller, Trav's system hydrogen fuel based power system is still there for the other system This makes it easier to intermix Trav-designed ships with B5 craft, but it results ...

Like the probe or fighter drones...the communications range is like 500 miles IIRC in the main book. So I was wondering if they could be controlled longer than that by the rules.

Drones

Are the ranges of drones based on the communication tech in the main book?

Also I saw mention of a drone suite for the bridge of some of the drones. But I can't find a write up of what exactly it is. Does anyone know where to locate it?

thanks

I think a creatures book is a great idea. But I'd prefer not to pay for a 5? page pdf of each one. And I'd strongly prefer one from Mongoose with conversions of prior CT and MT critters with real ones thrown in for good measure. Just my two credits. :)

I too like the GT books a lot but can live without the Spacemaster races. I enjoy point buy games but I'm running MGT now, using T20, CT, GT and other materials for the game.

whats the range on drones like the personal drone? The probe drone has a range of 500 miles.

Also whats the rules for upgrading them at higher tech levels? I didn't see much discussion of upgrading equipment at higher tech levels in the main Traveller book?

thanks!

It was written with _all_ the forthcoming Traveller settings in mind. Think Judge Dredd too! Hmmm...Personaly I love the d20 B5 books but I'm mostly interested in using the MGT rules for the OTU setting only. I hope they're sidebars or something for optional rules which can be used in Judge Dredd o...

Where as a carrier or battleship would be commanded by a Captain if it was the flag ship an Admiral would also be in attendance (the USN designated a Rear Admiral-lower half as an O7). Right this happened in Mote in the God's Eye where the Admiral commanded the other ship because it was a flagship ...

High Guard pg 79 & 82 deals with capital ship repairs and attempts allowed. Robots and Drones don' appear to have any specific rules covering repair that I could find.
Maybe they're under the Remote Operations skill? Which is used to run Drones.

I can see more of the book being for B5 then the OTU. I'm going to get it but in my game limit some of the stuff that I saw in particular the psi powered ships. That jumped out Shadow Tech to me :) And Bester's lover.
