A great view of the Traveller Universe from the perspective it's books and other novels in an effort to capitalize on these to conceptualize the universe.
This could go "on and on" with comparisons to other novels/series. I look forward to a 2nd novel. I would've liked to have seen Ender's Game, Foundation, and numerous other books mentioned. For that matter sci-fi franchises like Firefly, Farscape, Star Wars, and StarGate have all see a bit of Traveller in them.
