Strange message involving Bridge Officers

[Inventory] You have reached the limit of officers that you can have of this type.
On 2 of my characters I am trying to commission Mirror Holo Leeta but I keep getting this message. 1 character has 1 free bridge officer slot the other has 4 free boff slots and neither have either version of Leeta Active. Anyone else encounter this and figured out what causes it and how to fix it. I looked around online and couldn't find anything except for having full active boff slots or being at the limit of 54 boffs active and none of my characters are any where near 54 limit.

    How about a boxed Leeta in Inventory or your Bank?

    None in either characters inventory either but both characters have both versions of her on the candidate list.

    Do you have anything in your overflow bag? Cryptic blocks you from doing many things when that happens.

    Nope that was the 1st thing I checked on both and it has been months since I had anything in the overflow bag.

    Your candidate inventory is full.

    In your stations window, down bottom should be a button that says, "Candidate" or something. It'll open a window that's all officers that are waiting to fill a slot in your roster.

    This is where boffs go, when you try to recruit them, and you're current roster is full.

    1 character at 3/15 the other 9/15 and a full list last I checked didn't block activating from the candidate list.

    Then, not entirely sure. I've see "Your inventory is full." when moving things back in forth between the bank and character.

    The only thing I can think here, is that there's a bug where it's not exactly recognizing expanded slots.

    For example, on my chars where I just have the basic inventory bank and inventory, I don't see the inventory full message. But on my characters that do, especially my main, I'll see it popup occasionally as I move stuff around. Since most of the time, I'm moving things around in the expansions, and not the basic.

    Kind of like the bug in R&D. Where a project won't recognize you have more than 1 stack of something. So you have to move the larger stack around, so that the system recognizes you have enough.

    Why do you have both versions in the Candidate list? You can only commission one of them. Try dismissing one, and then try to commission the other, and see if that solves the issue.

    Hmm that is odd and Thx BMR that was the issue and I never thought to try that figuring why would that cause it since we can claim both if the person has access to her. Getting rid of one from the candidate list fixed the problem.

    I did the same thing last year as I have three Leetas in the C-Store Promotions Tab; two Choice and one Mirror (only). I wanted to check out how Choice worked and how many could be put in the Candidate Roster.

    I had one of each in the Candidate List. Only one could be Commissioned. There was some squirrelly things, Mirror was Commissioned and Dabo was ground into a Manual.

    Edit: Removed incorrect statement.

    Your shot of the Candidate Roster does not show any Leetas at all.

    That screen shot is someone elses candidate list not mine.

    I was just showing where the candidate roster was. I don't care about enough about boffs to collect any. Other than Nelen and Two of Five there. That roster hasn't changed since Delta Rising, then only Cadet, the hierarchy boff got added. Everything else is from 2012 -2013.

    Which, I'm not exactly sure where I even got Two of Five. But, then it's just sitting there, I haven't promoted or done anything else to either that one, or Nelen.
