Hey, Do you know where i can find the actual individual files for the textures used in EF? I searched my computer but couldn't find any... I want to use a lot of the textures in my new JK2 map :)
By the way.. am I even allowed to use textures from EF in a JK2 map??

I don't think you can. Especially if you're creating a ST map from those textures. Star Trek is property of Paramount and since Paramount and Lucas don't particularly like each other ;) it's not possible.
You could try and email Raven asking for permission but I have a feeling that they will say no. But even then, I don't think Raven has full control over EF and it's content.
Hmmm.. nothing on my map has anything to do with star trek except for the transporter textures. Grr i really want to use the EF textures, they fit the map perfectly and i tried retexturing it with JK2 textures but it doesnt look right...
I would assume that you can use the textures as long as whoever downloads your map has EF as well, because they have purchased a license to the textures that you have used. However, you cannot control this, so there is a little loophole there, and it is technically the responsibility of the downloader to make sure they are following the law. Of course, you map, if it was ST themed, could be deemed a parody, and those are protected, so an ST-themed map for JK2 would be just fine :)
