Pete, There might be other issues. I noticed that at least on my 2 turns that I received back that the Ships that were transferred or built didn't populate the fleets correctly.
Would those issue have effects on SURV mission's?
It just means that the left over points and the 150 points of research just given will be put to the research in slot #1 up to Tech lvl 3. Which might complete whatever research that is. Points are only used in Slot #1
