I don't think that forking tech trees is a good idea. It's hard enough to find techs that make sense, so we can't afford to create techs for a branch that isn't always used.

But I can well imagine that 'saving a VIP civ' could be an interesting twist to tactics in battlescape compared to the standard 'save as many civs as you can'.

That's actually a very good idea, it requires different tactics and adds variety. Heck, it could also be a case of rescuing a hostage VIP, or defend a VIP when the party he's in is getting trashed by aliens... all kinds of possibilities if we could script different mission parameters.
