Also, I can no longer switch to space maps, either. So, basically, I'm stuck in sector space.
I think I'm going to go play something else for a day or two while this patch gets fixed.
I should clarify that my inability to switch maps is consistent. It's not an "every-so-often" thing. It's an "I can't log into any map ever no matter how many times I log out and try again" thing.
I've been stuck at Cap 9.8 for the past two days because every time I've had the time to log in, I do half of an explore mission, then crash to desktop because I crash out during away team combat at least twice per mission and then I get stuck on a loading screen trying to get out of sector space. I'd like to finally hit RA, but it doesn't look like that's going to happen today, either.
