p. 9
"We've set back the 3rd Canopians operations by months". 
The 1st Canopian Lancers were the unit on world (Acamar) at the time, (p.22).

p.17 Capellan Mystery Sidebar
At the bottom it says "Continued on P.16".
It should say "Continued on P.18".

Repost from Ask the Writers:

Pg 83 sidebar, description of events at Dyev.  The sentence fragment "This resulted in" should be either stricken or elaborated upon.

Page 104  Hikage Unit Abilities reads: Overrun Combat, +2 to Initiative rolls if the Attacking force.


Seems to be missing something.
I have spoken.

Seems to be missing something.

Would it be clearer if it said, “if they are the attacking force” instead of “if the attacking force”?

P.83, Dominion Dominates Combine sidebar, Lambrecht subsection, first paragraph
Last sentence includes “...clear a path free from of Dominion opposition...”
Should say “...clear a path free from Dominion opposition...”

P.87, Marian Blitzkreig, 2nd paragraph
3rd sentence says, “The Guards had better operational knowledge of the landscape and thwa rted the Marians...”
Should say thwarted instead of thwa rted.

P.99, 3147 (Nov-Dec) entry
“Under mounting pressure from his generals, Julian authorizes launches Operation CERBERUS,”
Either delete ‘authorizes’ or ‘launches’. I recommend deleting ‘authorizes’

P.110, Aftermath
“Colonel Juliette Mejia’s turned victory into defeat...”
Should be Mejia, not Mejia’s

P.116 Touchpoint: Robinson section
“Hai” is italicized, it should not be. Hai would normally be in italics, but since the whole conversation is italicized, ‘hai’ should appear in non-italicized font.

P.116 Attacker (Republic of the Sphere) section
“The Attacker’s force equals 150% of the Defender’s starting force, evenly divided between the three Hastati, the Principes, and the Triari.”
Should be, “The Attacker’s force equals 150% of the Defender’s starting force, evenly divided between the Hastati, the Principes, and the Triari.” The Word ‘three’ was removed.

P.116 Defenders (Draconis Combine) section
“For determining Skill levels, the Eighth are an “A”-rated until with a Veteran skill rating.“
Should be, “For determining Skill levels, the Eighth are an “A”-rated unit with a Veteran skill rating.” Unit instead of until.

P.117 Objectives section
Complete breakthrough! Reads: “The Attacker completes Breakthrough! before the Defender’s remaining forces”
This seems like an incomplete sentence. Not sure what it is trying to say.

P.117 Aftermath section
“Only after careful analysis of the Wolf communications did the Falcons realized Alaric Ward had tricked them.”
Should be, “Only after careful analysis of the Wolf communications did the Falcons realize Alaric Ward had tricked them.” Realize instead of realized.

Thank you all for the quick reports.  Anything reported above should make the formal print run, and hopefully a PDF re-release.

P. 52, State of Emergency section
"DropShips already en route to JumpShips were accosted by the FWLS Delos’s aerospace wing and ordered to stand down or be fired on."

Might be a bit late for this, but per the errata for FM:3145, the Theta-Class WarShip Delos was stranded above Avior, not Oriente.

Correction: delete all references to the Delos in this passage.

EDIT: has been fixed per Errata; the Delos has been replaced by the Santorini

Probably too late, but if you're reprinting Shattered Fortress anytime in the future:

P. 20
"the rimward prong struck Joques and Dalton"

P. 21
"Colonel Watkins landed the Fourth on Joques"

The planet's name is actually spelled "Jouques".

First PDF release,  P. 51, 4th paragraph, 4th sentence.

Kreshik needs to be Keshik

P. 54, side bar.

"Canal was the first system assaulted, with nearly a full battalion of pirates claiming it in the name of the Rim Territory"

Correction: Replace with Rim Territories. This is the only instance of Rim Territory in the entire catalog to my knowledge.
