Well put. They'd have to pay the actors to use their "characters" in game, which is why you don't see Quark on DS9 or any other character that should theoretically be alive in STO's timeline. Still, how much do you want to bet you'll end up seeing "KerK' or "Sishco" or many other variations?

I wonder what steps if any they will take to keep people from making insane powerlevelling stories. In CoH it got pretty bad, which made it hard to find a good UGC adventure to play when you had to weed through the crap ones.
