A Fed might get a diplomatic option, and, if that fails, an option to subdue the bad guys with a knock-out gas. A Romulan might be able to sneak in and take them out one by one. Is that what you're aiming for?

If it is, I don't think it's really a great solution. Time and cost effective, maybe, but reasonably boring. Even though a Fed and a Romulan deal with the room full of bad guys differently, it's still the same room full of bad guys. And if the devs went through and really fully developed class or faction specific solutions to each new mission, it might take the same amount of time to just write two separate missions.
