I love White Star. It's not groundbreaking, or 100% original (Star Wars + D&D), but it is a great representation and it is a ton of fun. +James Spahn did a kick ass job and managed to get me back into Sci-Fi RPGs.
But back in the day our Sci-Fi games were not this:
There are some things in Traveller that I think of as a "must have" in a sci-fi game. Things like skills, some more psionics, and dying in character creation...wait, maybe not that.
White Star's class system covers broad skills well, but I have not tried to do very granular or specific skills yet.
Plus there are just a lot things in Traveller I just liked that I would love to see added to the White Star. Maybe this is something I can do for my Black Star game.
There are also some things in Star Frontiers I like too, but that is something more for blog posting I think.
