As far as I know, there were 30 TNS for the time period from 1100 to
1129 plus 15 TNS for the alternative GURPS Traveller timeline from 1115
to 1129.

thanks for the reply,but i think you misinterpreted my post, im not referring to the TNS news snippets that apeared in GDW JTAS 1-24 or GURPS TNS.
The imperial news service was a magazine produced in 1993 by star quest games.

Ah, sorry. :oops:

According to this Traveller bibliography, only two editions of the magazine
were published:

3/4 (combined issue) was actually produced. But it was on a very limited run as the main stay of Traveller news was still Challenge.
As long as there are stars in the sky and dreams about the universe, as long as there are chronicles of high adventure to recount, there will always be Traveller.
