Default Darrian Alien Module-GDW

I was going through the reprint that I have of the Darrian Alien Module by GDW, and came across the following two statements concerning the underwater city of Zlodh.

Quote:
Since the currents also carry waste heat upwards away from the city, the icecap above it has melted.
The very next sentence, which is a bit of a run-on, so I edited away the first part, makes the following statement.

Quote:
. . . and the air terminal on the icecap directly above Zlodh with direct transport on a vertical grav shaft to the city 2,000 m below.
I added the emphasis. A paragraph or two between might make this excusable, to be chalked up to poor, sloppy, or non-existent editing, but the VERY NEXT SENTENCE?

I will not even get into the certainty of ice cap motion and drift.

that do business in great waters;
These see the works of the LORD,
and his wonders in the deep.

Have you ever read any of the Group One supplements? Hilarious!

From Nithus: "The processing plant employs about 10,000 Captutains and most of the manual labor is carried out by robots."

Huh? What the heck do they all do, then?

The GDW Darrians book has issues, yes.
