i have XP and get that alot.. allthough i dont know how to stop it from happening i do know that it only happens once every time you restart Star Trek armada 2... so as long as you have it running it will only happen the one time.... well heres how to fix it for the duration of that time.... pause your game... ctrl alt + delete your way back to the desk top then close the task manager and return to the game by clicking on the task bar.

Thats the colonizing problem. What happened was the makers of A2 was too lazy to test all video cards for this bug. For some reason when you colonize a planet it changes part of the map. Due to a flaw in the game it somehow attempts to colonize your entire screen. My Windows Me does it also.

A quicker solution to this problem is to escape(escape button) from the game (once it turns white) go into Graphic settings change your display mode, exit Graphic settings, return to the game. It won't do it again as long as your playing it.

Long term solution - Buy a Video card that won't do it.
