My mouse has the problems. It works 100% of the time outside the program, but CERTAIN buttons don't work in Star Trek. It does EVENTUALLY work. I have to click about 30 times before it randomly accepts my click. It seems to be based on the on-screen item I am trying to click.

For example, in the game itself, I can click on most buttons, but when conversation comes up, the "Continue" button doesn't respond to left-mouse clicks until I've been clicking like mad for 5 minutes. But I can click other areas of the screen fine. This was VERY noticeable in the character creator where some fields (like nose type) seemed to work fine, but others (like facial hair) didn't.

I finally gave up trying to play the game. Everything else on my computer works 100% with my mouse, and the drivers are up to date, and in fact, a good 75% of STO works with my mouse. But that weirdly specific 25% tells me something is wrong with STO, not my computer or mouse, and it makes the game unplayable. Oh well.
