Re the maps, I guess it's like you said about knowing M1 maps so well, only with M2 lol.

: : That we are not human? The words I can think of no better way to help you

: Ah, got it. Personally, I think nitpicking the language that way isn't really
: that valuable. What's more definitive? This: Robert Blake left something
: for you a few minutes ago. He and the other humans captured a Pfhor
: refueling ship and found or forced someone to pilot it for them.

: Or this: You slam your fist in frustration onto the control board, leaving
: a dent.

: I think the latter is clearly more definitive.

To me, the former is only definitive in saying that Blake is human. It doesn't speak to our status in that department, it is just a convenient way for Durandal to describe who captured the ship. The latter I've never found definitive in any way. The armour we're wearing is clearly pretty tough, even if we were human, and who's to say what the control board is made of? Maybe aluminium?

Differences in interpretation are what is going to make this series, especially in Infinity, to which end I think we need to nitpick every word - in this game, twice. Next, an infinite number of times!
