Black screen upon trying to load in valkyrie

We kindly ask that you complete the questions below. With this information, we can investigate your issue properly.

When I try to start a mission, after everyone confirms, my screen goes black, and I hear the loading valkyrie music, but nothing else, and it stays stuck there until I quit out. I have been able to get into the Valkyrie before, and have played full missions without encountering this problem, but since this morning, I have not been able to play a single game, with this being one of the problems.
