Vacc Suit construction used to have a few different options for customization in different versions of Traveller. Are there any new and updated versions for Mongoose/T5?

Uh, the Aslan predates Chanur by 5 years. The Kzin appear in the Start Trek animated series. There are many examples of felinoid aliens.

any good gamer maps for an O'neil colony, Mckendree cylinder, or "Rama"?

I'm wanting a map program to make a cylinder with mountains rivers, lakes, and several small cities  inside.

My game system will have ten trillion of these in a ball around the sun.

You could also frame this as some kind of dimensional pocket that has swallowed them into which your players have to explore to find the missing ship.

I just finished running "Death Station" using CT rules pretty much straight-up. The only difference was that I adopted "Rule 68A" (a simple task resolution guideline - google for more details).

I used the pre-generated characters printed with the adventure and played up the Solomani Mercs angle for the finale, turning the "haunted house" into a race against time.

I also got to use the Ship's Boat Combat System as described in the skill list - it worked very well dramatically, though I rolled for damage rather than just gutting the pinnace. In the end, they managed to semi-crash land their flaming boat back at the base, having lost their comms (repaired during the approach) and large parts of their engine (I took a "three strikes" approach to hits on the engine). It was fun listening to the non-pilot characters - "Is the hull breached? I'm putting on my vacc suit! I'm warming up the air/raft in case we need to punch out! Is that hit something I can fix, or will I pull a Spock going into the engine compartment?"

Blame Star Wars, in which shields replace the need to be inherently aerodynamic.

Does anyone know of a program to generate Traveller planets and solar systems?

Program I mention produces http://dausha.net/terradoma-map, which is an SVG. Open the full map (imperium.svg) and view-source. Around line 166 you'll see Volume descriptions. The source file that creates the SVG has data on all orbits around stars, including multiple stars.

Any reason not to merge with the other Traveller community? I notice they have more members.

Better idea, a planet dominated by a cast of genengeneers wjth slave clones.
A pc may fall in love with a slave woman and...
What you think?
Roughly based on Cyteen novel.

Darrians, for many reasons, are a good choice. Logically, after the "accident", they would be desperate for a way to rebuild their population. And there's every reason to think that at least a few of them, in the aftermath of their society's destruction, would turn narcissistic and decide it's better to rule a world full of beautiful sex slaves than restore the commonwealth.

I also rather like your subplot idea. Maybe even have a rogue Research Station commander, who could become a recurring character.

This seems pretty quiet so I thought I would start something.

With the very close release of T5:

1 who was part of the Kickstarter
2 who is excited/ blah about the release.

Myself I participated and am excited to see what Marc has done with the system. It looks to be very "crunchy". I'm unsure if I will run it. being without a group at the moment, but I cant wait to see the 600+ pages of goodness.

On the rural encounter tables, how do you fill in row 10? I don't see rules for generating unusual events or natural features.

When designing a subsector do you fudge the rolls to get what you want, or make due with what you have?

IMO as the GM there is no such thing as a fudge for world creation. The world is yours to create and as a result it's your duty to make sure the areas the PCs encounter are an interesting experience :)

To answer the spirit of the question: Both.

If I have an idea of what I wan the Subsector to be like I only make the roles necessary to give me a rough shape and then the sector starts to fill itself in from my own head and I quickly stop rulling and just fill it in.

If I'm generating a random SS I role until I start getting some interesting ideas. Then I write those in without rolls and then if the ideas dry up and I'm not finished I go ahead and roll the remainder.

For some reason, the account I created over at Citizens of the Imperium has been blocked not only from posting on the forums, but even from the home page. I created the account just a few days ago, and I hadn't posted a single thing, so it's not possible that I could have broken the rules.

What is the optimal number of players for Traveller? I just finished reading the core rulebook, and it doesn't say how many players the game is designed for. Also, how do you determine the strength of enemies? Or does it matter?

I have always found 4-5 to be the optimal size.
