Please let me know if it works. I've heard that this trick is somewhat unreliable and function differently on different maps.
Been trying on the ground map I am using, it partly works. I say partly simply because, while it will spawn the needed NPC's there is a chance the player will move near the push pin before the mission gets to the point where the NPCs should beam down, that would just ruin the plot line. Not a risk i want to take, but if it was at the start of a mission, that had a path a player had to walk down, this would work well.

Odd thing, is you can make a friendly NPC spawn using the Kill encounter, but you cant kill them, and it wont ever get passed that part. :p
