Anything's possible. I noticed in the Picard trailer giving away Riker being in an episode the dialog was slightly altered. IIRC, in the trailer it was Troi calling for Riker instead of Kestra in the episode. Making sure the audience knew Riker and Troi would be in to help build some hype and interest. Of course you can't help but want to know what became of the rest of the Enterprise crew.
I just hope if something like Captain Worf shows up to save Picard, and we finally see a Starfleet vessel, they don't give it away at all.

In "Life Support" Bashir had the capability to replace portions of Bariel's brain (even all of it after having already replaced some) with positronic implants. While one could argue these were parts from Earth or some other central manufacturing facility that were kept on-hand, that hardly seems likely.
That these were life-saving bits of kit should've made them on par with biomimetic gel . . . a controlled substance. An outright ban and destruction makes no sense, but even if they did that . . . well, I don't know all the particulars in Nepenthe, but it sounds to me like a replicator, the pattern/plans, and an EMH could do the job well enough. Riker would have access to all three.
Instead, we're supposed to believe that the guy who personally invaded a planet for love would sit back and say 'whoa, that's illegal, sorry kid'?
