By my reckoning, this falls cleanly into the \"basic version\" category of intros rather than the \"light version\": I personally think 34 pages is a little more than some players are interested in reading to test a new ruleset, as some of mine have strong feelings about \'homework\'.
The introduction page seems like a solid and compact overview suitable even for new players. The chargen section does a reasonable job of presenting everything you need; it\'s hard to make the lifepath rules sleek and simple, but it\'s well-explained at least.
I do think the choice to restrict careers was sensible (it saves a lot of placecount), but I\'d question the choice of Army and Navy only. It\'s great if you want to run a fairly pulpy combat-based game, but that seems to massively limit your options. Most of my sci-fi background, even the planet-hopping stuff, is in civilian-focused stories; moreover, the primary focus NOT being on combat is one of the more interesting things about Traveller to me. I think this would be much improved by swapping out one of these (probably Army) for a sample civilian career. That way, a GM can easily have players generate characters naturally suited to and motivated for a game that\'s either got a combat focus, or a more exploratory and social focus. As it stands I think you could get the wrong idea here and assume it\'s essentially about fighting - especially as the lack of setting information means it\'s easy to write up a group of space pirates to fight, but hard to plan the mapping of an undiscovered planet.
The rules also omit the Draft rules entirely, but have not been adjusted - there are multiple references to the Draft, including a \"see opposite\" when \"opposite\" is a textbox about commissions - and this is likely to be quite confusing to a player or GM not already familiar with the rules.
Similarly, a lot of the pagecount comes down to quite detailed descriptions of what each of the skills does. I think a genuinely light ruleset could be created with abbreviated versions, but on the other hand, for the GM it\'s nice to have these.
There are some presentation glitches in my copy: bold text is misplaced so it sometimes runs over the normal text, causing some legibility issues.
I think this free version gives you plenty to run trial games of Traveller and establish whether you might be interested in turning it into a campaign where the fuller rules and expanded sections on equipment, trade, spacecraft and background would be needed. However, it does have the substantial downside of including no setting information whatsoever, no information on species, and definitely no plots. A GM with a good idea what they want to do with a crunchy sci-fi game should be fine, a GM who likes the idea but wants more support may have trouble.
