I've accumulated over 1800 skill points and over 260 Bridge points (or whatever they're called), and yet everytime I try to spend these points I get a message stating that "There was an error in allocating your skill points" (or something similar, can't recall the exact message). Other than that I haven't had any problems at all with today's launch, but I'm hesitant to start new missions unless I can upgrade my skill set.
Am I doing something wrong? I've tried dozens of different skill point combos (only in trainable skills, of course}, and everytime I hit "APPLY" there is a momentary pause and then the error message in yellow type.
EDIT: Never mind, I'm an idiot. I just noticed the "you can't spend new skill points until we open the other sectors" message. Sorry to waste anyone's time. Durr.
