Angry D3D Render Creation Error: Error String from renderer was: ''''

I'm getting this error whenever I start the game:

D3D Render Creation Error.
Error string from renderer was:
""
then..

Runtime Error!
Program ...ILES\ACTIVISION\STAR TEK BRIDGE COMMANDER\STBC.EXE
Abnormal program termination.

How do i fix this? It says nothing about full screen mode, like many other D3D errors, so I don't know what to do! I REALLY love this game, so please please help me!!
Thank you!
~Eric

Try and delete the options.cfg file.

Geordi:We've modified the warp coils by reversing the
polarity of the inverse geometric phase integrator and
adding a broad-band neutrino flux generator to the
hyper-magnetic field controls.
Riker:What will that do?
Geordi:Not a damn thing, but it sure as hell SOUNDS
impressive!

Hard reboot your machine, make sure your running directx 8.1, and that your screen size and colour depth are supported by BC.

When you delete the options.cfg file you do not need to replace it because BC automaticaly creates a replacement.

polarity of the inverse geometric phase integrator and
adding a broad-band neutrino flux generator to the
hyper-magnetic field controls.
