I think that going with the generic face is the best defense. No one can claim that you modified it to look like the actor.
I guess it's sort of interesting to consider now that multiple actors have played Kirk, his appearance is not necessarily set based on a single person. That being said, since the new movies aren't part of the properties under license for STO, if you created one of the morphed likenesses it might simply be considered to be Shatner.
On a side note, I think the morphed Kirk actually looks better than either of the actors who played him. I can't say that for some of the other characters, though.
