Well, it helps if you remember the Computers section was written by English majors in the late 90s. We've had a few hundred generations of evolution since then.

Tom, have you hit our Downloads or Resources sections yet? If not, you might want to scope out Foundry and Cosmos.


Heck, Traveller has been out of date with computers pretty much from the start.

Yes, I've hit the Downloads and Resource Center and found loads of goodies which I'm picking and choosing to save on my computer.

Thank you for the reply

Hello CP,

I picked up my copy of S*DGS yesterday and began reading the book during my wait to pick prescriptions at a military medical facility which took about three hours.

I have to revise my comments about the number of warships that got dumped after the 2nd Galactic War. However, my new view is still different from your interpretation.

From what I've understood so far the twelve surviving star nations, minus the stuff turned over to the Concord, have been refitting the surviving big boys with the latest gadgets and gizmos. They have probably broke up hulls too badly shot up to economically repair putting the salvaged parts on other hulls. The many of oldest hulls have probably been scrapped some may have been sold out of service. While a number of the hulls have been put in mothballs as a quick reserve. The number of warships sold out of service are probably a small fraction that survived the wars. The ships of the star nations that no longer exist are another story. I'm sure that a number are pirates or possibly some sort of Mercenary group.

I do realize I may be out to lunch. Come to think about it the I think A. Bertam Chandler's John Grimes series may be modifiable to Alternity.

Thank you again for the help and discussion.
