There is inconsistency in names of some stars, for example:

Barnards Star - no apostrophe in the name.

Scholz's Star - there is apostrophe in the name.

I think that correct name is for stars that were added or renamed for C# Aurora from this post: http://aurora2.pentarch.org/index.php?topic=8495.msg107348#msg107348

Rest have names without apostrophe taken from VB6 version.

Not quite a typo, but still a text bug.   Here is the blurb that show when you click on researching a new kind of laser. 

"Laser wavelength technology.   The higher a laser wavelength, the less the laser loses power with range.   Therefore, higher wavelength lasers will cause more damage at longer range than lower wavelength lasers of the same focal size"

The thing is, you have the wavelength backwards.   Frequency times wavelength is a constant.   Frequency increases as you go from infrared to x-rays but that means that wavelength decreases.   I was originally confused about why I would want to research lasers that I was told performed worse.

The fuel consumption displayed in the engine power dropdown on missile design is wrong for boosts past the tech level max boost. 

For example, on a fresh 1. 11. 0 Imperium of Man database, 255% displays as "Engine Power: 255%    Fuel Consumption: 51. 92" instead of 11. 21.    Boosts below the tech level limit display correctly (e.  g.   "Engine Power: 250%    Fuel Consumption: 9. 88") and the totalized fuel usage and efficiency numbers for the missile are correct (after accounting for the label swaps that other have noted in this thread)
