What I've posted in the several posts above will give you a taste of the problems in T5. It's not a comprehenisve list.

Of course, be your own judge. Everybody should be.

Some people are actually loving T5.

It's a popular aphorism.

I don't want to hate or dislike T5, I hoped with the influx of money a very nice product would be produced, even if I didn't like some aspects of it.

I am sorely disappointed that what was released was released. And that is about it.

If I remember from a Star Trek episode, "The more complex the mind the greater need for the simplicity of play.".

I freakin' love the remastered old Trek. Great stuff. I bought all three seasons.

Yeah, usually I blow off most updates, but Original ST was intended to be "better FX than what is currently available on network TV", so upgrading it some works fine for me.

That said, I got the set for my wife for her birthday. Scored Major husband points.

Now thats a nerdlife triumph !

getting back on topic...

This review was posted on the Google+ Traveller board. Granted, it's not much of an indepth review, but if a book is so unfriendly to readers that they just get frustrated and exasperated then that's not exactly going to enouraging them to delve deeper into it to find something useful...:
