Christmas War - Tinkering with the rules

I posted a couple of questions to the Two Hour Wargames discussion list tonight, just to see if I was at least in the same country, let alone ball park, regarding some of my character generating assumptions for 5150: New Beginnings.

It appears to me that, as I have chosen to create a new Alien race for 5150: New Beginnings, for my sins I also have to design the Generator and Profession tables. As the Rimbaur are pretty much like any other people in my Traveller universe, I have pretty much adapted the Basic and Zhuh-zhuh Professions tables, while skewing them slightly for a high tech society.

Rimbaur:
Rimbaud II/Gamelea B-434478-D
Attributes:
Agile +1d6 on any Physical Challenge involving agility
Slight –1d6 in melee
Leap can leap onto single story buildings or 6” distance from a standing start by taking a Physical Challenge.

Note: Under the Kalar-Wi occupation of Rimbaud II, Rimbaur Police are despised by the general populace and are considered to be lackeys of the occupiers. Either Kiang or Kalar-Wi fill all Police ranks above Sergeant.

Edit: Have bitten the bullet and reconfigured the table in HTML.
