I think I caught a minor mistake on p. 210:
"There must be dozens of populated systems within a light-year of each pulse," Pazlar said.

"Eighty-three to be precise," Tuvok said...
What David meant to write, I believe was, "There must be dozens of populated systems within a light-year of a pulse," because if there were 83 stars within a light-year of each pulse, that wouldn't make sense. Perhaps an even better way to put it would have been, "Each of those pulses is within a light-year of a populated system and there are dozens of pulses!"
