Changed/expanded errata on the Komarov as I had not noted earlier that it has wrong thrust/module.

Spaceships 5

Komarov-class
The ATR rocket is listed as giving 0.2g/module for a total of 0.6g. But the basic ATR at TL 10 give 0.2 with hydrogen and using water instead you get 0.6g/module for a total of 1.8g.

It is also noted as "This is a compact, single-stage-to-orbit vehicle using anti-
matter rocket engines to achieve high performance. This permits landing and takeoff from high-G worlds. It is designed to glide in for a landing from orbit, but it can operate from a vertical position"

But its ability to operate in high-G worlds is severely limited by the low D-v.

The d-V is just enough to reach low orbit of 1g planet with a minimal reserve for docking maneuvers,de-orbiting and similar, so it could not operate from larger planets. So no "high-G" world capability and earth size world support requires an atmosphere for landing or orbital refueling.

Changed/expanded errata on the Xanadu-Class as I had not noticed too many units in the rear section habitat.

Xanadu-Class
Has only two stardrives and the power to drive only two high power systems and yet the range is listed as 3x, should thus be 2x

The single drive is rated 100g/c, should be 50g/c

Rear hull section has a habitat with five luxury cabins, 180 cabins and a 20-bed sickbay. That is total of 210 cabin units of the 200 possible.

Spaceships 3
Eclipse-class

The crew listing has "plus all necessary small craft pilots and flight crews." But it does not carry any small craft as it has no hangar bay or external clamps.

Spaceships 8

This ship has a single [core] (in the Rear Hull), not two.
