The Foundry EULA specifies you can refer to characters. You cannot depict actors.
So if you use a character, it cannot resemble an actor.
We've been talking about what this means for awhile. Stormshade said you could use THE Q if he doesn't remotely resemble John deLancie in the slightest. (Examples given being Q as a Targ or Q as an Orion woman.)
You should be pretty safe with Chef from Enterprise or some of the minor Voyager characters who were never seen.
Basically, write it as if you were writing for the TV show and the actor is not available.
