Traveller Universe is a software aid for for Traveller written and supported by Peter Trevor. The aim was to take the best features of Galactic atlas program and the Heaven & Earth system generator ... and then extend it further. A secondary objective is to provide a standard data platform onto which later projects can be built. (By using database technology these later projects can be programs or spreadsheets.)
Currently the Universe GUI runs on Win9x/NT. In theory any SQL-compliant database technology can be used. In practice the database works with InterBase 6.0 and Firebird 1.0 open source RDBMS technologies on Win9x/NT and Linux via ODBC. (Ports to other technologies are planned but Traveller Universe will not work with MS Access97, or mySQL.)
