The biggest problem in Beta wasn't the system, but the lack of sector info. And that often wasn't in there. A prime example would be references to the Neutral Zone to get to Deep Space K-7. That the Neutral Zone was actually Eta Erindani was not explained. Nor was K-7 on the Galaxy map like it now.

That lack of Sector info is still annoying, by the way, and is still missing even from newer missions, like the Devidian ones. A mission's journal entry should always give both system and sector.

People don't read... you can count on that ... You just have to make sure that the information they need is there, once they go back to the Journal and read what they missed the first time.
That much is true, for sure. The amount of times I see people asking where the Breen patrol is...gee, could it be right where the mission says it is, doing what the mission says it does? Why, yes it is! Silly peoples.
