I think as a general rule of thumb you're better off just making up your own completely new characters. Then there's absolutely no chance of a EULA violation.

In the character screen, there's a "Create Content" tab. Click it, and you'll see a button in the lower half of the screen that says "Buy Foundry Project Slots" (something like that).

And it's 10,000 for a starter set of four slots.

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!

Of course I don't think anything stops you from using likenesses (it's pretty hard to make one anyway) of any non-Trek actors to 'play' the role so to speak.

From the EULA:

I would interpret this as prohibiting you from using anyone's likeness without their permission.

ST, that mission you're referencing is actually fine according to the EULA. As long as you do not use the likenesses of the actors, you can use the characters. I.E. you can have Barcley in your mission, but he can't look like Dwight Shultz.
