From the Editor
I want to start by apologizing—TravellerCON/USA and a couple of other things cut into my time for putting this issue together, and as a result, I ended up reprinting more articles than I usually prefer. The ones I chose were all originally presented in Cepheus Journal, and, having acknowledged that, I must also acknowledge—no, I must proclaim—that the CJ authors and editors have kept up the standard of quality that I believed I saw when I wrote my review of the first three issues in the March/April 2021 Freelance Traveller. As I said in that review, if you read Freelance Traveller for ideas, you should also read Cepheus Journal.
After reading P-O Bergstedt’s article on using AI generators for gaming (reprinted in this issue), I played a bit with the Wombo Dream art generator. One of the better results that I got from various Traveller-related ‘captions’ is the cover of this issue.
This year’s TravellerCON/USA theme was psionics, and I was able to put together a good collection of articles for the September/October issue; thank you to everyone who sent in relevant articles. Next year’s theme will be Free Traders; please start thinking about (and writing!) good articles for that theme so that next year’s September/October issue will be as focused as this years. Don’t let that stop you from writing articles on anything Traveller that might come to mind, though; as usual, I can use anything and everything Traveller that you have the desire to create and share..
