Is your desktop colour depth 8 bits? If so, set it to at least 16 bits (preferably 24 bits) and try again. Alternatively, run UQM in fullscreen mode. See the manual for details.

If neither of these suggestions work, try OpenGL mode.

Fullscreen fixed it.  My desktop is set for 32 bit mode, so that definitely wasn't the problem.  OpenGL would most likely aggravate the problem, as my video card is a pile of garbage that doesn't fully support such.
