When the Aegis Shield visuals are active, the bloom effect blinks all over as I pan the camera. It is mostly visible on nacelles, or large lit areas. It only seems to happen when panning around my ship, as the ships in the background (also with Aegis Effect) seem to look fine. Zooming out considerably alleviates this. With the effect turned off, I still get normal Bloom Effects with no blinking.

I have a Nvidia GTX470 with latest drivers. DXDiag below. I rolled back to the 19x drivers and have the same issue. When I turn bloom on low, all is well, but with a considerable loss in visuals, obviously.

Anyone else having this issue?

The red and blue lights on the nacelles of my Sovereign class ship flicker in both sector and system space.
This only seems to occur with the Aegis kit (Shield and Deflector) is equipped.
I have submitted a ticket ( 1018171).

I am currently using an Alienware M11x
Nvidia GT 335M
4GB Ram
Intel U7300 @1.3Ghz

The issue only occurs with the aegis set and doesn't occur any other time.

i have noticed that.

i had assumed the borg one was intentional but when i saw the aegis too then i realised it must be a bug.
