I really wanted to get into T5, mostly because the rule book was huge. (I like big books.) Had I managed to work out that system so that it made sense to me, I would have used those rules in the TNE setting, only because I've put a lot of work into that setting.

I'll be honest, I haven't really looked at T5 much yet.

MegaTraveller has to be my pick, because it was the current system when I first played Traveller. I designed hundreds of vehicles and starships with that system back in highschool. I never got to play or run it for very long (D&D, or Star Frontiers, or Battletech, or the old FASA Star Trek were more popular with my friends) but I did run some memorable adventures.
That said, I also love Classic, GURPS, and both versions of Mongoose Traveller. I've run adventures in all three.
I don't have as much love for New Era or T4, and I've never tried T20 or T5, though I have books for all of them too.

I have to say, when I was a kid and I looked at those MegaTraveller books and saw stuff like PassObjScan = whatever I was like "hard pass."

Now, I feel it's a pretty decent system.
