The setting is an extension of the background of GDW's Twilight: game, effectively showing what happened during the next years. Mankind has started to spread into space, and faces its first major competition in the form of the Kafer. The basic rules mechanic was a variation of the "Task" system originally developed for Traveller , using a d10 instead of 2d6, but most of the other mechanics were original to this game.
Traveller and Twilight received later editions using GDW's house system. A sourcebook to convert to the rules system was planned, but GDW closed down before it was written. The character generation system was similar to Traveller's , with a "life path" system. Only human characters were playable.
The core book also included pages of detailed tables to generate new star systems to explore. The space combat system was its own game, with a basic version in the core rules and a greatly-expanded version in the boxed set Star Cruiser.
Scenarios for Star Cruiser were also included in several of the rpg adventrues. The entire original line is available on CD in.
A d20 version called AD was released in late as a campaign setting for the T20 system. Moongoose Publishing, a current producer of Traveller material, has also produced a set of sourcebooks that use the Mongoose version of Traveller as their core ruleset.
Most of their material is revisions of the original game line, but there are some original items as well. With Mongoose's second edition of Traveller they are planning a second edition sourcebook detailing AD as well, and it receives several mentions in the Traveller core rule-book.

My friend was GMing Twilight: , and I was excited to have a closely-related game 'for myself'. I was a little dismayed after purchase, for the background, though tantalizing, was a bit thin. And the rules, well
