Default "command" stat not showing proper info

I have 2 ships.

For my Human ship I have 20 "command" points. In the tooltip it says heavy/medium/light components 3/5/6 but in reality my ship only has 3/4/4

For my Brunt ship I have 18 "command" points. In the tooltip it says heavy/medium/light components 4/4/5 but in reality my ship only has 3/4/4

Is the tooltip wrong, or is my ship not upgrading my component slots correctly?

It's including the race specific slots in the numbers.

Yea, I just notice that last night. I loaded all my chars and counted up the slots and noticed it included the race specific ones too.

I think this is a confusion nearly every player has when they start -- and that means it's a communication problem, not a player misunderstanding.

The problem is we're all taking our race slots for granted. Either the text under the command tooltip is too confusing, or the way the slots are set up on the components screen is confusing.

Solutions:

A) Fix component system in players' favor: race slots are a bonus IN ADDITION TO command slots. i.e. it works the way that new players expect it to.

B) Or perhaps the slots could be displayed differently under the Command tooltip? 3/4/4 should be 2/3/4 if a race has a heavy & medium race slot.

C) The tooltip could put numbers in parenthesis and an apology below:

Next level component slots: 3(2)/4(3)/5
Numbers in parenthesis do not include your ship's racial slots.

When I started the game I found it very disappointing that I'd spend command points and not get additional slots because of this misunderstanding. It's possible that a new player could choose a race that won't get slot bonuses for several levels.

Considering how extremely limited and specific race slots are, they should not be included in the tally at all.
