If I rotate the camera to get the flickering part of the background off my screen, then the ship no longer vibrates. Or, if I zoom out further, the vibration stops, but the background flickering is still there.

For the record, my setup:

Alienware M18x
Intel i7-2820 Variable Speed Processor (2.30 base, 3.4 turbo)
16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 RAM
Windows 7 64-bit
(2) NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M 1 GB GDDR5 Video Cards in SLI

All drivers up to date.
What you described seems to be the exact same thing that happened to me during a Cure Elite space run last night.

I zone in and my KaríFi starts popping like a hydraulic low-rider.

I thought that the problem had something to do with the latest TS3 update that I downloaded but it seems that itís being caused by the latest STO patch.

I hope none of the players that are affected by this are seizure prone.
