I really don't think that is necessary. As an author, you cannot possibly account for every eventuality. Even the "Cloaked Intentions" series had a mission where a BOff freaked out over spiders. If you had a Vulcan in that slot, then they got emotional.
My stories don't have overly emotional text from the BOff (more like status reports), but if I did I wouldn't warn people with a message that says "Don't play this mission if your Engineering BOff is a Vulcan."
