Steps to Reproduce:

  • From main menu, choose "Continue Campaign".
  • Select a fleet by left clicking it on any system.

Actual Result: The game freezes all animation while it continues to play music for approximately 30sec. After this time, a popup appears that states that a display thread has timed out after 30 seconds, and the game crashes.

Expected Results:

  • The animation should continued, the fleet description should appear in the left data section, and the game should not crash.

This event is not 100% reproducible. It can even happen with the very first fleet selected the very first time the game is loaded. The probability of encountering this error goes up significantly if you select a fleet, and then select another fleet without first de-selecting the first.
