No problems detected.
I just went through Reach Adventure 1 "Marooned on Marduk" as well as High Guard to check out the Passenger Shuttle, wondering if 60 seats really should consume 60 dtons and cost MCr30, and of course they shouldn't. And while in "Marooned on Marduk" the price of MCr30 is listed in the table, it was omitted from the final cost. In both publications prices vary and the deck plans do not show the additional airlock paid for in dtons and Credits.
I recalculated the TL9 version of the vessel from High Guard and kept all items listed in the original publication. Note, that this design leaves 60 dtons of Acceleration Benches in place for a total passenger capacity of 240 persons. This is due to the fact that High Guard notes the passenger capacity per dton to be four persons. If, on the other hand, 60 persons were meant to be transportable by the design, the number of benches would need to be reduced to 15, for a total of 15 dtons and MCr0.15. This would add a total of 45 dtons to the cargo capacity of the Passenger Shuttle, making it more of a dual use craft than the current design, which holds only 13.05 dtons of cargo by my calculation (and not 13.3 dtons as both publications denote, making the design 0.25 oversized).
It would certainly be nice for players to receive a free updated version of all published ships, as by my reckoning not a single design remains without errors. Especially for High Guard that means that 130 of 225 pages have errors, from plainly false calculations, to omissions or misnomers and botched deck plans. The same goes for Pirates of Drinax Vol. 3 and designs published in adventures.
