If you really like 2300AD as I do, then I recommend it as its the only game in town. The author has many supplements planned with the first two do out in the the next month or so. Unfortunately, the book has numerous errors and isn't all that attractive. Given the price tag I expected something like the Eclipse Phase core book, which is really well done. Instead its B&W and rather unsparing. This seems to be Mongoose's MO for most Traveller books. Also, I'm not a fan of the Traveller rules but finding decent GURPS conversions is easy.

Hope this helps.
