I'm sorry, but no.

The idea is a famous recreation of a battle.

I agree that what you are asking for would be much better for those people who actually want to make great missions, but unfortunately where you find that group, you'll also find the exploit groups- like those 3-click missions people.
Can't see how it could be an exploit to have vanilla mobs, especially when we been basically fighting these vanilla mobs for the past 3 years. Remember, it wasn't really until the Mogai got those Tractor Beam Mines that mobs started getting abilities.

And it would be nice to have a seperation of STO and Traditional Trek mobs, which basically have Phasers or Disruptor with Klingons carrying a Bat'leth into battle.
