My client is crashing during combat on the away team part of escorting the Vulcan ambassador (P'Jem). Once I reload the client and log in, it returns me to the beginning where I must fight the Klingon vessels in orbit, though I seem to keep skill points acquired from the previous run before the client crash. It has done this twice, so it is reproduceable. I'll be giving it another go to see if it happens a third time, and if so, I'll be sure to let you guys know. I'm trying to pin down the particular source of the issue, though so far it doesn't seem to be linked to any particular skill use or other situation. It does only happen when I'm actively in combat with enemies.
Third run through started me out on P'Jem this time, so it saved progress, but crashed again during combat. It only crashes at the onset of combat with lots of Klingons, so it may have something to do with graphics. I'll try it again after reducing them a notch and see how that works. I doubt it is, given the hardware in use, but it's always a possibility. I'll report back shortly.
I reduced graphics to 150% and I was able to complete the mission, though I can't be sure it was because of my graphics reduction - the reload put me back in the team instance, and they had already mostly completed it. Certainly merits further investigation.
