Make sure you get drivers for your card/OS.
What are you're temps while playing STO? Limiting the FPS and turning off/down some settings (i.e. AO, MS/AA) will help if the card is overheating. STO can push cards to a lot higher temps than other games and can result in the drivers 'crashing'.
My temps are 29C Idle and 51C on full load for the GTX 460- with everything maxed out.
CPU temps are 30C idle and 42C on full load.
I have my FPS limited to 60FPS, I've turned off antialiasling and I have also toned down all lighting effects and turned off Dynamic Lighting. It has made the game a little more stable but from time to time the screen will go black and come back and after a while just completely freeze.
