Btw, I am not seeing the Traveller Companion in the Release schedule. How is it going with this one?
I've also been very curious about this. Mentioned all over the corebook but not on the current release schedule at all? odd.

I think the Companion is proving to be the trickiest of Traveller supplements, from what it appears. Maybe they should return to the idea of making an indefinite series of Compendiums instead?

Anyway, I'd like to see all the Major Races detailed in some fashion, along with Robots and A.I. to make a full set of options available for exotic characters. The Aslan are currently the one race to see a full supplement as part of the Pirates of Drinax campaign. Maybe the others should be merged with adventure books of this type too?

I emailed Matt about the companion. The bad news is - they delayed it to early 2018. Good news is, it's going to happen.

I've been asking for the Hiver and K'Kree books since like 2011? Any ETA?!?!

In the Great Rift Kickstarter comments, they've indicated that the K'kree are high on their list. Sounds like there might be something in 2018.

Y'know, at this stage, what I'd actually like considered is one, big "Aliens of the Imperium" sourcebook, to detail in some capacity all of the major Alien species - Aslan, Vargr, Hivers, Kree, maybe others, and then maybe another book strictly for Humanity species - Vilani, Solomani and Zhodani.

All should have details of making them playable races.

Also, I want a Robots/A.I. book. With playable Robots.
