it happened right after I saved the two doctors. the moment I saved them it crashed... now when I try to continue it puts me in the room where the leader was and it crashes instantly... it tells me I have an upgrade and then it crashes.

have you tried re-installing the game?

I just did again and got a crc error, go figure. I had tried reinstalling it once before and I guess I didn't notice the error, I'm going to try using my friends copy and see if it works.

If you get a CRC error while installing, try copying the contents of the DVD to a temporary drive and installing from that drive instead of the DVD. That has worked for a couple of people.
