Just A Pinch

Fusion power from late TL8 on in GURPS: Traveller uses the premature development of gravitics (normally TL11) to squish the hydrogen down to fusing.

The control of gravity allows the management of neutrons and all their problems.

Fusion plants in this technology are also breeder plants which start with primary Hydrogen fusion and ends with Boron fusion before "running out" of fuel.

You can press it farther, but once you get to iron, your plant will consume power rather than produce it.  Between boron and iron you get increasingly diminished output.
