Have you taken a look at the texture file? Maybe for some crazy reason, it was left blank. You can find this file in
*BC Directory*\data\Icons\TrekCursor.tga

If it is there open it with a good image editer and resave it as an uncompressed tga, that could be the problem

You can't prove something is impossible, only possible.

Also Have a Look at http://atrueuniverse.890m.com/index.php

Learn to program look here http://learntoprogram.net84.net/index.php

Note: I'm still working on this site.

Hmm, I'm starting to think it may not be the mouse cursor texture. Mine is 16 KB.

Anyways, I for one use Gimp, and TGA Tool (found here on this site). They suit my needs and they're quite easy to use. What you should see if you haven't changed the mouse texture is a yellow Startfleet insignia.
