if for no other reason than to take advantage of actors like Quinto and Cho
The producers could still
place the show in the original universe, in the TOS era (or a few decades after) and still
have Quinto and Cho make appearances.
Because if they wanted to have appearances by the characters of Spock or Sulu, they would have to get actors other than Nimoy or Takei.
Why would the setting have to be the alternate universe to get those two actors? Just hire them.
