Yes. Looking back on it, I guess that it was just a minor terminology disagreement.

True, but logically (or in my logic, lol) why would a Republic ship be that close to Taris on a supply run? A planet overrun by the Sith and is obviously a base planet for them. That is just me though. I guess that I should say this again..."desperate effort to halt the Sith's galactic domination".

But doesn't Trask say something about being ambushed by the Sith...some of it doesn't make sense though...

Do you know of any other Star Wars databases other than Star Wars Databank and wookiepedia?

Very true.

The same can be said of the Jedi battle fleet. We only get to see one cruiser, but that doesn't mean there aren't others - they're simply implicit. And by the time the initial cutscene starts, the battle seems to be ending. We may notice that on the way the Endar Spire looks damaged.
Yes. One guy can't remember everything at 10 o'clock at night though.
