Table "D5.02 Detection Category" has a footnote marker on both column headers "Short" and "Scan" ("a", "b" respectively), but in the footnotes are no associated entrys. Obviously the existing notes are just missing the related characters.

Already have that one, but good catch :)

Here again. :)

"Example D7.03 Large Explosions"
The second example states "3*6 or 18 points of damage, .... ..., damage would only be 3 points of damage."

It should be "... be 2 points of damage" as per "D7.03.1" 10% (FRU) of 18 = 1.8 = 2

Walking through the rules. :D

D9.07 AP Combat
Has a reference to D9.05 which is not a link.

And:
P2.03 Tightbeam Range
This paragraph is empty and the associated table is on the next page.
There should be a reference at least.

And another two:

_ApxEE_Tables:
1) Automated Platform Hull Table
Buoy2 has a "footmark" (*) in the Notes column but no responding footnote.

2) Table H1.06 Restricted Arc Weapons (both, in the ApxEE and in the rules)
Row "Base + Kinetic" has "footmarks" (a, *) but only the (a) is actually there.

Found two errors in AppFF_Examples:

Example D9.02 Sample Programms
There is an entry named "F1.01 Example of Courier Drone Program".
I think it should not have a rule reference. ;)

Example E5.02 and E5.01 are in the wrong order.

After reviewing the rules for RDS/SA:

N4.03.1 has a table which has no number (possibly not necessary).
But the entries in line 2 to 4 have "footmarks" (*) but no corresponding information for them.

To prevent a possible misunderstanding:

K2.01 regards to the starting infrastructure.
K2.01.1 states that you get a Very Large population with 2005 PU.
K2.01.5 says you get the maximum allowed SA and double the amount in RDS, BUT the example in parentheses says "3 SA and 6 RDS for 2000 PU Large".

Although this is not an error, because 2000 PU IS limited to these numbers, it can be irritating as the Player Setup gives you 2005 PU Very Large. So I think this example should be adjusted to the setup.

The Y19 passive defense thread was split off for discussion.

Yeah, I'm finally back (again)! Sometimes, life (and 13yo son's) don't leave you time to play SF and earn a paycheck. :/

No, really! Matt actually made me an admin here!

In _ApxAA_Tech.pdf for the X:

First part, there is a reference "See R2.04 for Top-Secret and Undisclosed WPs".
Why? :?:

The table for Xc has a footnote "b see previous table...", but is missing this "footnote"-marker on his own column for "WP Types Located". :)

In L_Economics_Population.pdf:

L7.02 Complete List of Maintenance Cost
Begins on page 91 with exactly one entry (Fast Warship), then there is a big gap, and on the next page the table continues. But there is no hint that the table is splitted, and (I think) the gap is big enough to hold the split off part.
