I logged into the game for the first time at about 10:05. Everything went normally until I pressed the "Create New Federation Character" button. When the new menu came up, the buttons for each class were blank. Attempting to drag the window did not move the window, but caused the text to appear.
I backed out of the creator in an attempt to repro the bug. When I pressed the create new character button again, all the menus went away and only the background remained. Unable to get a response fom the game, I alt-tabbed out of the game to start putting together a bug report, but when I alt-tabbed back in again, the screen was completely black and unresponsive.
Unable to repro - appears to be a simple loading error.
