The fact is the EULA is a joke to begin with. Read what it actually says. You can't use the first or last names of any actors, directors or producers of Star Trek. Any mission with the name Jonathan, Patrick, William, Rick, Brannon, etc. is in violation. Actually, considering the number of people involved in Star Trek over the years, almost every single mission that's been made is in violation unless they used purely nonsense names because someone with just about every common name has worked on ST in some capacity by this point.
Leviathan99 is right, no matter what you ask, Cryptic will say no. They'll never answer in the affirmative, and their answers are often not even supported by the EULA. By saying no they protect themselves. They only open themselves up to trouble by saying yes.
What I take away from this is
people need to stop asking what's allowed.
