Zone chat has one major drawback compared to Chat Channels:
It's not Global.

For example, someone talking on Sol Starbase zone chat won't be heard by someone chatting on Deep Space Nine zone chat.

Given that the players would be spread out across multiple maps, a Chat Channel is a more practical solution, because no matter where you are in the game, you can read it.
