In this ATU, the Solomani discovered jump-drive a lot earlier (in 2017 AD) than in the OTU. NASA and ESA agreed that the most democratic way to name planets and subsectors would be to let everyone vote on the interwebs. The result can be seen above.
I am a fan of the Firefly since the style of that show is so close to my own Traveller gaming adventures. Kaylee as the engineer of the ship was one of my favourite characters. (Not only because she is so pretty.) Now she will be in a Canadian crowd funded movie.
Jewel Staite also runs a foodie blog and one of the vanity levels in this crowd funding project was to go out and eat with her in Vancouver. If I had lived in America, I would have supported this project at that level. Have you noted that Jewel and I are at the same restaurant in Paris in the pictures in the right column at our blogs.
If you cannot get enough of Jewel State you should also have a look at this charity work for Breast Cancer Research that she did. (Yes, she is nude in a tub.)
