Just an old country doctor by the name of McKoy, his Vulcan antagonist Mr. SPOKK, and their fearless Captain Circk.... These are original characters of my Foundry missions that do not represent any known actors or characters from the original show. They only happen to look similar.
Also the mission involves Q. Although he looks like John DeLancie, he's actually a different Q. No relation, I promise.
I just posted in another thread about this, but I really think we ought to leave the licensed characters to Cryptic. If they want to put a cameo in, fine, but we have our own captains and crews, and STO is supposed to be about them.
Actually, I don't think that character likeness is allowed on the cafepress stuff. I vaguely remember reading in the rules regarding the fan merchandise that character likeness is one area that's off limits. might have to look through it again...
 Ah, here we go...

taken from a post by dstahl, there seams to be a list of characters we cant use.

You're either joking around or you have no clue how copyright and trademark law works.
Long story short; I sell blue T-shirts with a red 'S' logo on them. I explain in court that my T-Shirts aren't about 'Superman' from Krypton, they're about 'Sooper Guy' from Betelgeuse. Guess what happens? I lose the lawsuit and have to pay punitive and compensatory damages (them's just fancy words that mean 'lots o moneys'), and I may end up having to pay DC's court costs and attorney's fees.
Besides, unless Cryptic/Atari's attorneys are stupider than the people that believe that your post presents an accurate depiction of the situation, I'm certain that the Foundry EULA will contain language that reads something like this: "Trademarked characters are a violation of this agreement, as are similar characters with minor changes, e.g. 'Sooperman' instead of 'Superman', or 'Captain Quirk' instead of 'Captain Kirk.'"
