I want something easy to reference!  Discord is not easy to reference!

So...there are a lot of Mongoose Traveller 1E books.  What do I need to look at?  How in depth do I need to go when it comes to looking at the books?

Just look at the core rules for MGT1. You won't need to look at anything else for basic game imperials, and I promise not to blow you out of the skies with High Guard heavy military boats inaccessible to you.

...although the best strategy for freetraders in space combat is still to be somewhere else than where space combat is happening. Freetrader ships designed for keeping as much freight on board for going from A to B are not exactly well-equipped for facing "open" and "fair" space combat.

As for character creation, as there is a lot of dice rolling involved which would be a slow process with the forum-based dice tool, I have registered the code "tanstaafl" in the Metstübchen die roller: http://www.metstübchen.de/cgi-bin/DIESERVER/roll.pl?diestring=&comment=&code=tanstaafl&name=&showroll=show

EDIT: You can also use the forums if you prefer, I just thought a convenient alternative may be appreciated by some.

Now that all have filled out their career, you should also divvy up the skill package:
Astrogation 1
Broker 1
Comms 1
Engineer (Jump Drives) 1
Gunner (any) 1
Medic 1
Pilot (any) 1
Social Sciences (Sophontology) 1
Steward 1
Streetwise 1
Vacc Suit 1
Zero-G 1

Each skill is available only once, for the whole group. If there is consensus that a certain skill should go to a certain character, you may decide so. After that, everyone rolls 1d100 and takes turns picking skills in descending order.

Skyrock, what skills are required for a pilot? I'm the best pilot we have.

The only really necessary skill for a Pilot is Pilot (Spacecraft). Comms is useful to have as it is usually the pilot who keeps radio contact with the starport and other vessels, Zero-G and Vacc Suit can be very helpful if artificial gravity and/or life support fail.

I have all of those so I don't have any dibs on the skill list either.

I don't really have any preference, the ones I don't have on that list can go to anyone as far as I care. :p

Engineer (Jump Drives) 1 would make sense with fit my other skills pretty well if no one minds.

Can roll me against others for:
Astrogation 1
Broker 1
Comms 1
Gunner (any) 1
Medic 1
Pilot (any) 1

Others I will pass on.
Hmm.

SDK, that's not really how it works.  Once we're done giving people skills that they need we just all roll and then pick in order until there aren't any skills left.  If you get stuck with Steward then you get stuck with Steward.   :P

Eh, my solitary preference is known then, Oh, and giving Steward to our non-noble.
Hmm.

Okay, that's everyone accounted for except for WJ who appears to have disappeared from the Discord.

Are we going to SDK his Jump Drive skill and then start rolling for things or try to hunt down the missing player first?
