Hey STO Players! I have a question. How many of you would like to see more Federation and Klingon mission with encore appearences from Star Trek Characters. For example a mission briefing from Adm. Janeway, Capt. LaForge, Adm. William Riker advises you on a mission in Romulan Space. Capt Chekotay. Kai Kia, Capt Dax.,Capt Data and many others.
It costs to have actual likenesses of real people in the game.
Trust me, that'd be more than awesome to have a lot of those whom we know, show up in the game. But for the most part, those who were in the shows and such, are lesser characters: D'tan is an excellent example.
Or if they are slightly more major characters (see: Sela), then they don't really look like their actor for the same reason as mentioned above.
I prefer straight out fanfiction, it tends to respect the universe more.
I know, right? They take what JJ Abrams has done to the series and make it look like something mildly respective of the franchise.
As far as characters from the main series' appearing... it'd be nice, but not likely. As far as I know, Michael Dorn is the only one who's given clearance to Cryptic outside of Leonard Nemoy for his voice work. But don't quote me on that.

Fanfiction! ZOMG! Read it now!
Its been decades since the TNG-era shows, and even the future of 'All Good Things' is over a decade in our characters' past. Even the younger guys like Harry Kim and Nog would be in like their 50s or 60s by 2409. Most of the older characters are likely retired by now, and those that aren't are in senior positions now and probably don't see a lot of field work. We're in a different era now.
