First, the Errata:
Page 4, 2nd Paragraph. Change the sentence about "starting from" the starting player - it should read "starting with" the starting player.
Page 6, 1st Paragraph. Remove the last sentence. This is a HUGE error, and I don't know how it slipped past both myself and Mr. Faidutti.
1) When performing character actions, always load your Astronauts first before using the character abilities.
2) No, the "Analysis Error" card and "Lost in Space" card were not deliberately mangled. I have a pre-printing .pdf of all the cards, and there are no missing letters on these cards in that file - it's apparently an issue with the printer.
The actual text should read:
The resource token in this zone is discarded and replaced with another resource token chosen at random. If there were any score tokens left in this zone, they are also replaced by new score tokens matching the new resource.
L.I.S. (Lost In Space Memorial)
At the end of the game, received one Bonus Point for each of your Astronauts lost in space, killed by the Femme Fatale, the Saboteur or the Soldier
