- The component "Repulsar Beam" should be called "Repulsor Beam"; "ECM Detecter" should be "ECM Detector"
- It would make a bit more sense to call "Gamma" components "Gamma Burst" instead (Gamma Burst Mines, for example)
- In the Borderless Window option tooltip, "the windows" should be "the window", or better yet "the game's window"

I tried to rescue a ship but monsters got to it first. The quest log says "Failed (planet destroyed)".

There's an extra period in the image.

When trading planet knowledge, the system names of planets listed under "We Offer" are misprinted as ##2## . It's always the same, regardless of the actual system name or system owner.

Oh, and taking screenshots in borderless window mode crashes the game.

That's strange, it works fine for me. Is anyone else seeing this?

Yes -- it happens when you click the planet data to actually trade it and it moves into the "you're trading this" section. I forgot to mention it.

In case it matters, I'm on a Mac.

Ah, that's what I was missing. Valgor even mentioned that part.

Happening to me too. The planet name was Cyonia under planet knowledge, but shows up as this when you get it under "We Offer"

Sorry, my wording might've been a bit misleading.
