Don't know if it's still going, but the author also had a 'limited time

Dean: Sounds very much as I was expecting, and glad to hear it. Like
you, I
tend to buy every space combat system under the sun; I'm still waiting

waiting to hear 'they already have!'). I already own, I think, every one
that was produced in or near Traveller. One question, though: are the
pieces that are similar to FT enough so to use for creating new 'races'
our FT universes?

While I remember fondly the old FTII four firing arcs (yes, I know, I
still use them), which the new system both complicated (a 50% increase
the number of arcs!) and simplified (no more firing arcs partially
overlapping turning points), the match to hex of six arcs does make
to hex-based games seem more plausible. Not that I've tried, yet.
