So what are the rules about effect and affect?

I went to that link, and the effect on me affected my infection with the English language.

In the Overlord quest text, there's a superfluous 'the' in "They usually won't attack the anyone directly [...]" .

On the new Win Progress screen, "Are allied with most powerful race?" should probably be just "Allied with most powerful race?" .

'Discrete' should be 'discreet' unless you mean distinct attacks.

Looks like the QuestFail text is missing.

'You' should be 'your'.
You could reword it as, "This is not recommended for your first ship."

I lost a sector and got the attached message. While it is suitably negative, the comments about the other races aren't really relevant. How about sentences like this?

You have suffered a humiliating defeat.
You failed to earn the trust of the great and powerful.
The galactic races hold you in contempt.
You tried to control this sector but it threw you off and left you in the dust.
You are not worthy of the name of Drox Operative.

For the item "beam amplification module", one of the stats is "+x% skill damage". This seems like a carry over from DoP/DC. Should it be "weapon damage" for DO? Or is it specific to laser weapons, so should be "beam damage"?
