To the OP.. I think most main characters are from the main homeworld simply because if you're a human from Alpha Centauri they think the audience is too stupid to realize they're not an alien.
They might be right. A lot of fans thought Zephram Cochrane was an Alpha Centaurian humanoid, even though McCoy states he is a human.
If we go with the idea that humans are a fairly common species throughout the Star Trek Universe and popped up eons ago on many worlds other than Earth, it does work. Terrans would specify humans from Earth (or of Earth ancestry), Alpha Centaurians would be humans who originated from Alpha Centauri, Ventaxians are humans who sprung up from Ventax II and so on.
