I didn't bug it ingame because I was too busy trying to kill a horde of klingon ships, until I just quit the game in utter disgust for the night.
I had this problem back in OB when they flipped a switch and ramped up the difficulty of the encounters. The higher level klingons in the sector defenses started using boarding parties to disable systems. I had so many shuttles lined up behind me by the time I realized it, they were queuing to get on my ship and disable things
Back then a bug had the disabled systems offline for a 15 minute timer
so I was dead in the water for 15 minutes. (engines worked but I had no weapons at all) I think that timer was reduced (god I hope it was reduced) but are you certain you weren't boarded? It can get a little hectic sometimes. Took me awhile to notice.
