From the Box:
Welcome to the exciting universe of the far future! Who knows what the future holds? With Traveller, you can find out as you personally journey far into the depths of interstellar space and to the surface of alien worlds. With Traveller, you can choose your own destiny and attempt to fulfill it in a life of adventure, power, and fortune. With Traveller, the universe of the future is yours.

Traveller is a science fiction role-playing game of the far future. As science fiction, it realistically approaches the the problems of future society, and portrays what the coming millennia may bring. As a role-playing game, it enables each individual player to participate in the action, the suspense, the dangers, and the rewards of every adventure mission. Set in the far future, every scientific advance is possible, allowing the opportunity to understand and utilize the marvels of ultra-sophisticated technology.

Specific rules topics in this three-volume Traveller set include --

CHARACTERS-- Individual characters, the alter-egos of the game players, may be generated and recorded. Special rules cover skills, weapons, combat, material benefits, experience, in prior careers, and rank.

STARSHIPS-- Complete rules cover the design and construction of starships, including how much they cost, what profit can be made in commercial service, and rules for combat.

WORLDS-- Rules cover the characteristics of alien worlds, from simple facts of atmosphere and size to the types of animals and people to be found on them.

SPECIALS-- Additional rules cover special aspects of future society, such as trade and commerce, and special psionic powers.

This basic rules set provides all necessary information for understanding the Traveller game system, generating player characters, creating futuristic science fiction adventures, and playing Traveller. Additional books of rules, supplementary information, and adventure scenarios are available separately for advanced players.

Welcome to the exciting universe of the far future -- welcome to the universe of ... Traveller(tm).
