To be fair, and just to cut into the argument, unless either of you are a publisher or distributor with their finger on the pulse of the market, it is unlikely either of you has the full facts
Matthew and friends are preparing a new Traveller
core rulebook and a line of supplements for both the OTU and other settings.
Ad Astra and MegaMinis are producing new lines of minis for Traveller
, including the first capital ship models (!).
BITS, Avenger/Com-Star, and QLI are producing modules and supplements in a variety of mileus - the Traveller
OGL will make it possible for these publishers, and others, to continue supporting the game in the (far) future.
Even if it's true that the Traveller
fanbase has 'dwindled' to a bunch of "frothing fanboys,"* apparently that's enough to capture the interest of quite a few publishers and minis manufacturers. However, something tells me that's not the case here, that the market is deep enough with both old-timers and newbs to make it a worthwhile investment, or these companies wouldn't bother.
