My recommendation is to pull what aspects you liked from the Kirk/Spock/McCoy trio and create your own. Good foundry missions pull inspiration from the shows, poor ones attempt to replicate them.
Don't tell that to these guys : http://www.startreknewvoyages.com/

They put who knows how many man hours and expense into playing the Enterprise crew and they look nothing like the original cast.
Play more STO Foundry! (You can thank me later.)
