Either I've Suddenly Developed Amnesia...

...or someone has reprinted something I wrote without my permission

It's a Traveller adventure called Starfire published in 2016 by Star Quest Games, who apparently reprint old magazine adventures etc. I know nothing about this company - does anyone have any contacts, or know anything about them? I can only find one dealer selling it.

I've asked them for any info they can give me - we'll see what happens.

Anyone got this in their collection?

Later - I'm reliably informed that they did a bunch of Traveller in the early 90’s, including authors like Garth Nix and James Cambias. They were a small press operation run by James L. Shipman. The 2016 date on the page I linked to is probably an error.

Later still - someone selling a copy on eBay took a look inside for me - apparently the publisher (now deceased) adapted it from a Star Trek RPG scenario I wrote. I vaguely remember the adventure, but I can't for the life of me remember which magazine it appeared in - a lot of it was a big fight around a mining mass driver on an alien world. Ring any bells with anyone?
