Okay, I have two areas of questions.

1. There are these two sections in the EULA.

Prohibited Uses of the Star Trek Properties:
You may not use the first or last names, likenesses, or other depictions of any actors appearing in, or writers, directors, or producers of the Star Trek Properties.

I take this to mean that I can not talk about Bill Shatner, but I can talk Captain Kirk? I just can't show him, since he looks like Shatner?

You may not use copyrighted content from the Properties, including but not limited to web content, promotional materials (posters, advertisements) or existing licensed merchandise (novels, trading cards, figurines).

Does this cover things like characters from books?

Other Prohibited uses of New Game Materials published using The Foundry:
You may not use New Game Materials to depict a likeness of any real person (historical or present day).

So, I can't have Issac Newton in the game. But, like Data, could I have Issac Newton the poker playing hologram in game?

2. Related to the EULA I guess, but could I take a holodeck program from the show, remove all of the "likenesses" from it and shoot it out? Specficially I am thinking about Tom Paris's version of Photon's be Free.
