It looks like a fun game!
The use of armour grants a slight Traveller feel, but the differences outnumber the similarities. No lasers, and no spinal weapons: kinetic weapons drive the game to short-range combat. Armour positioning is quite important, as is tactical positioning: good for the computer game format, not necessarily significant for Traveller-style space fighting. (TNE’s Brilliant Lancers/Battle Rider, being map-based, is probably the Trav version most tied to actual positioning.)
