As with anything, the execution will make or break the concept, which in itself isn't a terrible one albeit one that is a little bit corny but not necessarily in a bad way!

I'm put in mind of a world somewhat like the Stallone film Demolition Man where everyone, including law-enforcement has become so placid that they are unable to comprehend or react to a sudden, unexpected threat from outside, thus necessitating a person from the past to help combat it.

Also I would caution against pitching the tone of the story too seriously - the entire 150+ worlds of the Federation being unable to field one suitable starship commander and turning to cloning a man from seems implausible in a serious piece, injecting a little tongue-in-cheek tone makes it more believable in my opinion.

But good luck!
