I'm having a similar problem.
I haven't played in a while, but just got a new desktop. Downloaded STO, installed. Was informed that my drivers were out of date, but that I could still play on low rez. Which I did for a little bit, then decided to go ahead and update my drivers. This went without a hitch, but suddenly my Cryptic load screen would get to 1/3 and then freeze up. (the screen, not the whole computer). Would have to ctrl-alt-del to get it to close.
That was last night. I called it a night and this morning I uninstalled and reinstalled. Loaded game, it worked alright, then I tried to play with the resolution settings. Now it gets to 4/5 done on the Cryptic screen and locks up again. Immensely frustrating.
UPDATE: I uninstalled and reinstalled again. Game now works, albeit somewhat laggy. This might be my internet's fault. I've noticed that both times this problem happened was in conjunction with changing something about the video, either drivers or settings.
