What does "Shuffled around the systems, added a bit more content to them for a more dynamic experience." mean?
Do you mean the corvus mode star systems are changed? which would mean this patch is not save game compatible?
Or do you mean the ship systems? or do you mean the systems are changed only when using the new beginnings option?

It means the star systems changed a bit. And that won't be reflected in existing saves.

The Elevation should probably either have the "CARRIER, COMBAT" tag removed, or the "NO_AUTO_ESCORT" tag added.

...Unless the actual intent is for it to be bad under AI control in fleet situations?  I can't really rule out the notion that it was meant as a good player flagship without also being a competitive fleet element.
