Introduction The Deep Periphery and its inhabitant have been a source of wonder and mystery for both in universe characters within BT, and for many fans fascinated by the activities of those who reside beyond the reach of the Great Houses of the Inner Sphere. Players would then have to wait for nearly a decade for an update, one that came with an in universe date ofover thirty years after the first report.
Though this is again part of the tone set for the work, a more standardised formatting could have been of more benefit for some players. Llayers is unusual is the absence of a section on the Hanseatic League, however, this was intentional according to author comments on the BattleTech Forums.
Works can belong to more than one series.
The Competition section assesses the motivations and goals of the other powers and groups engaged in exploitation both within and outside of the Interstelar Sphere. IE is an interesting work for the BT Universe, providing much information on groups and areas which were previously only given limited page space.

IE opens with interztellar obligatory short fiction piece, which ties into the feel of the cover.
Series: Battletech Interstellar Players
IE leaves many questions unanswered and many seeds for future mysteries. Jihad Field Reports For some time now I have been tinkering with the idea of reviewing the new products… In our latest plwyers of BattleTech products, we here at OurBattleTech look over what is probably the last of the long fo… Historical: As such a small work, it seems that there could have been space to present detail on all the systems mapped in the book, however, as stated above, these details were likely left out for specific reasons, both in and out of universe.
Many sections and sub-sections also include a Gamemasters heading, which provides some behind the scenes information and insights and suggestion on possible campaigns and adventures. Several of these realms would come to play a larger role in the history of the BT Universe going forward, with their motives and actions effecting both the Clans and Inner Sphere.
The last of the three seems to be the beginning of a new interstellzr for BT, one rooted in our own ancient past.
Where are the Wolverines? The first concrete details on some of these realms and worlds was provided in the original Periphery Sourcebookpublished inwhich detailed the major and minor realms that were close to the borders of the Successor States in Though the activities of the Successor Houses are mentioned, no great detail is given with an even lesser amount provided regarding the major Periphery realms.
The third section covering the Periphery is called Spinward Discoveries, which opens with a sub-section describing one of the regions of lesser human settlement and the reasons for it. The introduction covers why the book is the way it is and is short and to the point. Like How-To or Painting articles?

The intrstellar sub-section, Spinward Discoveries, is an interesting snippet of worlds discovered by IE, covering a wide range of settlement types and historical outcomes.
The second major section outlining niterstellar Periphery is called the Anti-Spinward Empires. So, the Dummies guides are a series of works.
Layout and Editing ISP3: The section ends with a discussion of the surviving elements of ROM and the Manei Domini, with an interesting spin on the future of both groups. IEtakes players to the edge of human space and both backwards and forwards in time, providing detail on some of the earlier colonial surges and their results.

Interstellar Players by Fanpro. Although it answers a few questions, the fiction also throws up many more and perhaps ends the chance to close some investigations. The last of the Periphery sections, Rimward Wonders, presents the area beyond Canopus and Taurus as something of an anomaly compared to the other three regions, with historic fears brought from earth given as a possible reason.
IE a halfway house between the Jihad books and other Plahers products. I could not help but think of Troy McClure presenting the video, something that adds a little humour to the section. IE is an enjoyable read and solid addition to the BT line.
