Description (Specifications)[edit]

The universe described in the published material for Classic Traveller, MegaTraveller, The New Era, Marc Miller's Traveller, T20, and The New Era: 1248.

  • Please see the Canon article for a better idea where the borders of the OTU line up.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

  • Note-1: Since the GURPS Traveller Universe doesn't diverge from the OTU until a short time before 1116, anything published for GURPS Traveller that applies to events earlier than 1116 or so also applies to the OTU.
  • Note-2: The first few original LBB Traveller books did not yet have a developed OTU and were a generic RPG system, meant to be used as a template for other sci-fi backgrounds. The OTU developed later and became the default setting.
