Nothing currently, but used to play Traveller and MegaTraveller and have just ordered the Monsoon Traveller 2e core rule books, a campaign (Pirates of Drinax) and the Journals (of the Travellers Aid Society, a Traveller magazine), so I guess I’ll be running that soon enough.
One piece of advice from a Traveller GM, I wouldn't start with Pirates of Drinax, though it's a super campaign with a more experienced group. There's some neat adventures in the JTAS series and some of the individual adventures that make a much better introduction to the game. Of course if you've run/played Traveller before this doesn't apply so much.
 

Currently running a hard sci-fi campaign using Sarah Newton's excellent Mindjammer sourcebook for Fate sci-fi play.
Very different feel from the Bulldogs Fate-based sci-fi game I was in a few years ago, and from the Savage Worlds Flash Gordon game I ran a 24 session campaign over Discord.

I am about to start an Alternity game in a setting of my own devise, a combination of Star Wars with Supernatural and DOOM, using (temporarily) Alternity's excellent aliens.

The Drinaxian Companion is an additional supplement for the campaign I found to be real useful.

The whole group (bar one) used to play Megatraveller. That said, I intend to do as you suggest and start the campaign with a couple of smaller adventures before getting into Drinax, to loosen our atrophied Traveller muscles (last played in 2014).

I'm pretty sure that making my character in Starfinder took longer than the campaign the character was in.
I thought the character creation was pretty good! My players felt like they had ton of options. They could choose where they put their skill points, etc. We've had four sessions so far, but we're on a hiatus because of the Pandemic.

Oh I’m sure. I was just kidding around. I found the number of options and choices to be overwhelming. And all the different key words for abilities and statuses.

I'm not currently playing or running a sci-fi campaign, but I really want to get Esper Genesis to the table. The setting reminds me a lot of Mass Effect, which is one of my all-time favorite settings.
 

Fenris-77

Small God of the Dozens
I'd really like to run Mothership, but it'll be a while. My dance card is pretty full just now. I suspect CY BORG will come out first.
 

None at present, but late last fall was Dune playtest. SG-1 from shortly after the KS closed, for a couple months. (Nov to Jan or Feb).

Am wanting to do more Dune.
