cannot remember that happened to me before.
This time I wrote down the message the CTD-Fatal Error popup-box gave me.

Quote of the info I sent Cryptic;

"I experience random crashes. Star trek Online crashes to desktop (CTD).
messagebox appears.
Title: Fatal Error
Message: Fatal Error: Direct3D driver returned error code (E_FAIL) while while creating a render target texture.
Technical Details: E_FAIL while creating 2D render target texture size 3072 x 2048 (RTEX_NVIDIA_INTZ).

I have tried to force verify files, and unchecked update on demand. No change.
My computer is as follows: Alienware m17x-R4 w/AMD Radeon HD7970M. Win7x64
Drivers are up to date, running no funky programs in the background.
This error happens always when loading to New Romulus from spaceship, and embassy, but also in spacefights, and now, when trying to load to interior of Drozana spacestation."

maybe someone else gets the same message?
Okay the smartass in me wants to scream THAT'S WHAT YOU GET FOR GETTING A DELL DUMBASS!!! lol (dell owns Alienware incase you didn't know). Now that I got that out of my system, from the texture size it sounds like one of two things. 1) the main skybox texture itself or it's that damned nebule background texture (you know the one that flickers along the edges sometimes.)

In your STO graphics settings are you set for dx9 dx9/dx11 or full dx11? Try changing those settings and see what happens, it might render it properly with a different setting.
