I suspect a strange data corruption in a saved game file when the klingon AI eliminates the ferengi AI one turn earlier.
Two saved games: (2 -> crash, 1 -> klingons kill ferengi)
EDIT: Just diagnosed: ECM bug (and possibly other mods?)
Eliminating an empire, with all other races unknown, can crash the game next turn.
So a patch seems to corrupt the gameInfo in this case (known / dead empires bitmask?).
No idea how long determining and fixing said patch will take.
EDIT: Re-downloaded the installer to rule out any editing mess-up on my part and tested all relevant patches I could think of, but to no avail.
So any hint/help would be appreciated.
