Hi Sam,

this would be generally safe, however, when you publish your method, the reviewers and readers will have a bone to pick with you.
STAR does not really require installation, you can download a pre-compiled executable and run it instead of the one "installed" on your cluster.
I recommend re-generating the genome indexes for the 2.5.1b.

Cheers
Alex
