I wanted very much to like this book since I am a huge fan of the original Traveller but all I could think of was "who really wrote this crap". Supposedly the author had over 100 writing credits when he did this but there were so many inconsistancies that I frequently lost track. For example, the first officer is described as a nerdy science type who has never been on a starship before. Later the captain can't tell how old she is because she is a spacer. Later still our nerd disarms a soldier with her combat training removes the magazine and gives him the weapon back and then turns around and laughs at the guard when he tries to shoot her in the back and can't because he doesn't notice there is no magazine in HIS weapon and when he does apparently doesn't have a spare.
The worst sin is that this was supposed to explain what happened to the Kinunir but instead added a lot more that wasn't in the original adventure, left out a few things that were and expects a planet full of rioting people to not talk about the ship that caused the riot when anyone else stopped by.
