Not sure how they are supposed to get around this rule.
I remember one of the "Ask Cryptic"s was very specific:
They don't have the license to any ships from other game companies.
[NOTE: the Vesta was not created by a game company and it still took over a year of negotiations to get it in]

Also, the Fek'lhr is not named after the creatures from STO, it's named after...Fek'lhr from "The Next Generation".

The Fek'lhri were based on these guys:

who might or might not be related to the former.
