The concept might not be a bad one, however I think it could be used to develop content in many ways.
Suppose each candidate brought with them a different set of politics, example being something along the lines of a new UFP president who wanted to end the war with the Klingons. This could also lead to content as missions could be generated in response these elections which tell the path to peace or to a trench war. Imagine being able to add small listening posts in sector space (similar to the ones that popup during nebula exploration) where you would either have the goal of holding the post of taking the post by force, depending on the story line.
This in turn could generate additional content while giving the justification for the game and its overall story to evolve. This wouldn't stop things like the warzone content from being fresh, it might just lead to a different area of play.
What if you could have mixed teams on STF's? or if you could actually generate a wargame where the sides became mixed? This would at least help explain some of the story holes that already exist while adding more content that might be useful.
In my opinion anyway.
