On 21 February 2019, Robert Eaglestone launched a Kickstarter to get a new Traveller periodical founded and funded. It funded on the first day.

This is a true Fanzine, with most of the material produced by Fans who are participating in the Traveller5 initiative. It's about discussion, example, and bold ideas rather than finished product. So, these issues are "non-canon," although content *could* be re-used in later publications.

Each issue is at least 16 printed half-pages (5.5 x 8.5) in a saddle-stitched booklet format.
