There seems to be some discrepancies in the rules. For example: "Attacking with Fighters" section says that the speed of the target isn't taken into account for fighter attacks, but the examples following all include the target's speed modifier.
Also: In the "Explanation of Damage Results" section, it mentions that the target didn't move so "no modifier for that", yet the table shows that a stationary ship suffers a +1 modifier for shots against it.

Is there a guide to ship building? It seems compartments are the “currency” to keep things even, but how (or what) dictates how many systems per compartment? I see some where there are two engines or hangers, how does that affect balance? Am I correct in assuming that if a compartment is destroyed all systems in it are gone?

Is it possible to play this game on a hex map?

The rules explicitly require a hex map.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
