Should be "laborers". Thanks for pointing it out.

Unsure if this has been reported previously.

The last word in this paragraph does not need the 's.

The implied text is:
"Their determined colonists are able to make better use of airless or inferno worlds than any other species's [colonists]." It's a classic sentence construction, e.g. "your house is bigger than his". Admittedly the whole "s's" looks clumsy; personally I'd use " species' " here but there's no actual grammatical rule about this, it's just a question of style.

Though I suppose you could rephrase it as "than those of any other species" to avoid the issue.

The possessive is correct; the subject is the Yoral's colonists, so it's correct to refer to other species' colonists. I think it's also technically acceptable to use 's even on words that end in s, but I agree that I would prefer to use just " species' ".

This was from a game where I integrated Phidi as Gremak.

Defense Network tech description: "... locations which were previously though useless...". I suppose should be "thought".

Notification about won space battle says "Our ships were victorious", even when all you had in battle was ground defences. Suggest to replace "ships" with "forces".
