There is the mission of "Will and a Barclay" where she has you on a holodeck and says the images are messed up. But claims they are Captain Picard and his crew all in the form of her. This was very funny, but I am certain if someone wanted to make a federal case out of it, they could.
I am sure there is a grey area on this rule, but this rule is in place to keep Cryptic out of court with anyone like CBS or Paramount who could sue them. Since this is supposed to be 30 years after the last movie, all the characters would be dead or dying anyway. So personally I prefer to make up characters in the costuming.
Good luck with your mission!
