Yes, you're right. In the first line I set some nodes to be semi-transparent. Changing that fixed the problem. Thank you!

Here is the problem. You cannot have semi-transparent edges in
postscript files. alpha must be 1 for the edge color. If you want some
kind of light grey color, set red, green and blue to (say) 0.8. If you
really want transparency, then create a PDF file instead, that
probably supports transparency. You can probably convert it to
postscript with keeping the transparent edges.

If you really tried alpha=1, then something else is going on, but
could you try again with alpha=1, just to be sure.
