Regarding the Alien Modules, I would wish for a kind of material which helps a gamemaster to portray them more easily to the players. For example when players visit an outpost of the kkree what impressions do they have. What kind of electronics to kkree have, what is the smell there and which exotic kind of equipment do the players see? What architecture style? How looks the typical food and how is it prepared - by a high paid chef, a dozen slaves or star trek style food synthesizer? Kkkree Civilian clothing, how does it look? Which customs do the players experience? Kkree furniture? Nice details like: Do the Kkree have special silver combs for their horse manes? :) Some typical Kkree prases when they speak. Or how do a Kkree Starship looks inside?

Maybe some of those above infos are already in a source book, but I didnt read them all.

The reason behind my request is that I think some such infos and details would help the GM to portray alien encounters to the players in a realistic way especially if they are supported with well selected pics of alien environment, equipment and typical cultural scenes. Its also away from the theory and towards how the group experience the alien culture in a more practical way.
Yes, that would be very nice. Extensive information of history, society, biology etc is primary valuable for the referees (which is good since it’s the referee who buys the book).

I think this type of information could be a one(?) page handout which the referee either can describe for the players, or even hand it out to them as a reminder of what this race is like. Short and simple.

Does Aliens v1 have a "new" sector with official UWP data? One for the K'Kree.
No, the Alien books concentrate on characters, equipment, vehicles and ships - basically, everything you need to get them into your campaign wherever it is set. We will be visiting new sectors though.

You're doing a Deneb+Spinward Marches book, what about the Solomani Rim+Alpha Crucis and Ziafrplians+Gvurrdon combos? And yes, we want two more Sector Books for the Hiver and the K'Kree :) ...
Rim/Alpha Crucis will be the next sector book after Behind the Claw (looking to get it out later this year). Hivers and K'kree will also be covered - we are already talking about Gateway sector...

Would you be able to play Dolphins in the third Aliens book?
No. But you will be able to play them in Behind the Claw :)

Among a great many other minor races, as it happens...

The Sword worlds and (don't know how to type it, starts with F), are still in the long term scope, I hope!
The Sword Worlds book is in the next tranche of books to be written (actually, it has already been started...).

So, if we can expect some publications before the end of 2019, can we also hope for the editing of the two or three french traductions for Legend that you have received ? Just asking :P
Actually, yes - the French version of the Traveller core rulebook is being laid out right now, and Legend is the logical next step there... Don't expect anything to happen immediately but yes, it is on the cards.
