This is almost certainly a case of a corrupt save game (probably created by a crash while the game was in the middle of an autosave). I suspect you can work around the issue by going into your Stars in Shadow/ install directory, and deleting SavedGames/autosave_1.
(We've seen a number of errors of this type coming up recently; and I'm a bit mystified as to why it's suddenly become an issue. Were you playing on a very large map before the crash occurred?)
