Are we allowed to use canon locations?

Yeah, it's all about image rights. The model of the Excelsior doesn't expect a royalty check. Outside of this game we wouldn't be allowed to use any of this stuff for ourselves, except as fan fiction.
Technically we're just not allowed to show the actor's likenesses, so if you were to have someone playing Sulu who looked totally different that would also be OK. However, it's not really worth it, because to most people the actors are the characters and it would just be weird having Sulu look differently. Better just go the audio only route, or avoid the characters entirely.
