So far in the game we have had Captain Spock (Gateway missions), Tasha Yar (Temporal Ambassador) and Lt Worf (TNG Anniversary)

Is it possible to get these characters added to the Foundry as contacts or is there too much copyright/legal issues surrounding their use to make that feasible? They would be great for Temporal missions...

There was no Spock likeness, just a voiceover. As for the other two, Cryptic would likely have to negotiate again for likeness use. Honestly if I were an actor I don't think I'd grant it, given that there's no telling and little oversight as to what people would do with my likeness. Giving it to professional devs is one thing, but giving it to the public masses is quite another.

We do have old man Worf though....

Forum Logic dictates that if the devs don't do what a poster wants, they therefor actively hate what that poster is advocating for. Forum Logic =/= Real Logic

So we cannot do William Shatner All Bran missions, but we can do old man Worf all bran missions!

Actually, Spock appears on-screen if you use the data recorder rewarded from "Diplomatic Orders". There's a picture on STOwiki.

Sela's costume is in the Foundry as a contact, but Bran said we shouldn't use her.
