In the table on page 163, the last entry is repeated twice.

In the last box on the left side of page 170, the last sentence includes the phrase "identifying marks/scans/tattoos," which I believe should be "identifying marks/scars/tattoos" instead.

Page 153, "A New Order"
First column, second paragraph begins "For the first time there is a due process for the RDU...."

"Due process" is a legal term with a specific meaning related to a suspect's/defendant's rights (to a jury trial, etc.) Although it's related, it's not really appropriate to use it as it is used in this context. This seems to be saying that "For the first time, there are procedural requirements for the RDU...."

Also, "where" in the second part of that sentence, should be "under which." While "where" can sometimes be used in this sort of construction, it's

An alternative is to rewrite the whole thing as "For the first time, Replicants are entitled to due process, and detectives must investigate..."


Same page, second column. "As if even one N-9 was proven capable of the old N-6 inhumanities, there'll be industrial upheavals...."
1. This sentence should begin either with "Because" or just plain "If."
2. "was proven" should either be "were proven" (subjunctive) - in which case "there'll" should be "there would" - OR it should be "is proven."

Page 159, "Inquisitor General"... shouldn't this be "Inspector General", according to page 156?!

Page 202, "A recent 2032 edition to the RDU’s repertoire" should be "A recent 2032 addition to the RDU’s repertoire"

153, The New Order: "And so the UN, Wallace Corp, the entire economy needs the RDU to keep that all from happening."
Expecting: And so the UN, Wallace Corp, and the entire economy needs the RDU to keep all that from happening.

155, The RDU HQ: "So, while some Blade Runners may aspire to claim one of those top brass corner offices high above, the streets below and the second to last stool at the White Dragon Noodle Bar suit most just fine. And they give extra noodles on the house."
Expecting: this is the second time talking about the WD noodles & extra servings in two pages, remove.

Here's what I think is happening here:
In BR2049 Joshi mentions the DNA Base. Somehow in translation, Free League sort of tried to spell it out phonetically (De NA Base).

I would recommend it be changed to the easier to say and more conventional DNA Base.
