It's worth noting that it's the original text, no upgrades, no modernizations since the original from the 1980's.

Essentially, this is edition 2.2 of Classic traveller.
(The Traveller Book is 2.1, and the 1981 Books 1, 2, & 3 comprise 2.0)

This is also the original "die in chargen" Traveller, you can see it here with this character generator:

Tested the generator and died on the first try.

Man, this is brutal.

Jackasses? You let a whole column get stalled and strafed on account of a couple of jackasses? What the hell's the matter with you?

Thanks for the heads up. Yeah, I picked it up as a bit of historical reference, too.

I just mentioned the cautionary tales, as a lot of people expect things at DTRPG to be current (which often is NOT the case) or at least include the errata as a tack-on (this one doesn't).

Dragoner, in his v2 account, noticed the freebie, and posted the thread. And that's good of him. But...

Then he deleted his account. (not the first time he's done such. Probably not the last, either.)

That's an illegal rehost.

The current official errata is (and is likely to remain indefinitely) http://farfuture.net/errata.html

The first link actually got you to the PDF, though apparently an improper host of it. The fixed link gets you to a list of links but the one for the errata doesn't work any more. Alas. Proper and nonfunctional.

I’ll point directly to the “Citizens of the Imperium” forum's copy of the errata, but it requires signing up to download.
