Is there supposed to be an indoor map of The Colony, at least the lab part? The text reads a bit like it is.

Not a typo but I believe the effects on explosions on page 12 is wrong. Explosions under water is worse, compared to on land/in the air. If anything, the blast power should be increased, not reduced.

All tokens for watercrafts are looking the same, across friendly, allied and enemy. No visual distinction of nations/models as for land vehicles in the core set.

Page 56, Water Wars: "And perhaps the worst part is this is,_ _ _ " Change first "is" to "in".

On page 5, in the Mankind's Oldest Highways vignette, there should be a comma after "what".  Otherwise, it reads as "when I asked what he said" (i.e. what did you say?). That's not what the narrator is asking. She's asking what he means by "it".

Current:

He just stammered and said, "you got it” and when I asked what he said, "the 1000-yard stare,” and went into his tent.

Should be:

He just stammered and said, "you got it" and when I asked what, he said, "the 1000-yard stare," and went into his tent.

OR:

He just stammered and said, "you got it." When I asked what "it" was, he said, "the 1000-yard stare", and went into his tent.

On p.9, "It isn’t uncommon for a cargo ship loaded with trade goods to arrive at their destination..."

- should be "... at its destination...".

I am not a scientist, but on page 12 (Water Combat), the rules for underwater explosions may violate the laws of physics and hydrodynamics.

From How Stuff Works,

"One hand grenade is in the pool, the other is by your chair. Which blast is more dangerous? If you chose to jump in the pool rather than endure the explosion on land, we have some bad news for you: You made a disastrous decision. Assuming the blast from both hand grenades was identical in strength and that you were the same distance from either blast, the underwater explosion, also known as an UNDEX, would be far more dangerous."

It goes on to explain why. The Wikipedia article, Underwater explosion gives a similar explanation.

On p. 17 in the Naval Warfare chapter,

"... the River Queen is breached and she starts to take in water!"

The correct nautical term is "take on water".

On page 32, "bodies massed along a beach being picked by birds and crabs."

Should read, "picked at by birds and crabs."

Blast damage should increase for a person (or object) in the water, but the blast damage of an explosion in the water to a person standing on deck should be reduced. I think that's the confusion here.
