1. As far as I understood the EULA, there is general no restiriction on using places and names.

2. ST Androids are generally OK because they don't depict a single person from the series/movies. But they must NOT look like one of the actors. I am not 100% sure but a "bald" Android with the skin tone and eyes of Data -without looking like a bald Brent Spiner- should get you on the safe side.
Personally I would still avoid it.

Use your imagination and tell a new story: Invent Worf's illegimate Half-Sister (that way you avoid a Worf lookalike). Or create a sentinent Borg who references Hugh (which is allowed).

If you can tell a good story that gets the player attached and involved you don't need known characters, just give the player an "anchor" to the events of the Series
