Welcome to Hailing Frequency gmartok.
I am thinking that you should uninstall both the game and the patch files, then reinstall the game first. Following that, download and install the patch after. Patch's really should be installed into the game, not visa versa.
Let us kow if this helps, and again, welcome aboard the UFP DevilFish, Hailing Frequency's news ship in the Federation ... and beyond.
