I've read it's a bug with bloom effect for some people.. either turn off bloom or minimize the game before the hyperspace part, then open in back up. Crashes me everytime. After a couple runs, it actually fried my GTX 670.. thank god for warranty.
Pull up to the scene with my saber missin'! Middle finger up to my competition!

I believe the bug is related to the hyperspace animation when the ship jumps away. It also happens in the Foundry at the same moment, and at the end of Black Talon too.

The solution is, as several people have mentioned, is to alt-tab just as the hyperspace animation begins so that SWTOR is no longer on screen and not rendering that animation.

With an SSD it takes about the same time to just log back in but without this is a bit faster.
I crash if I alt-tab out in windowed fullscreen. I do not crash if I alt-tab out in regular fullscreen. If you are on 7 or 8 like me (maybe vista too?), the reason why I am guessing this happens is that the preview box (I am referring to the image you see when you hover your courser over the minimized tab) is still trying to render the images that cause the game to crash in the first place. The preview window for the tab does not render when in regular fullscreen for me, and therefore does not crash. Just a guess.

Switching to regular fullscreen (not windowed) right before convo allows me to alt-tab out and not crash.
