I wonder if it wouldn't have been better to have STO not set so far in the future. If it was only 10 years after Voyager/DS9 then a lot more of the old characters would still be around and active. With it being so long afterward, most of them will be pretty old and not playing a huge role anymore.
I guess maybe there is some problem with using the old characters. I suppose he actors get royalties or something for using their likeness (and I guess not using their likeness would be rather disconcerting), but it's too bad because I think a lot of people would enjoy more of a tie-in with these epic characters. Sure we know some of them are around somewhere, but never really encounter any of them.
