How about doing away with the computer/subscription part of the contest...that is what is making it limited to the US.

What about just having the Enterprise F contest and the person who wins, gets a unique title in-game and the pride of having designed the new enterprise?
You're assuming that's the only reason. There could very well be other factors. For example, what about your copyright. Just saying "out of the kindness of my heart, I'll give this to you for free" might not be valid in every country. And suddenly someone could argue that Cryptic is using a copyrighted element from a subscriber in Croatia, which violates Croatian right, and thus unless Cryptic stops using it, would ban all access to the game for Croatian users.
Certainly, that might be a ridiculous example. But could you guarantee it?
