S&S Audioworks license didn't actually allow for what they did with Q-in-Law.
It has nothing to do with main stars versus guest stars (there were Star Trek

The situation with Q-in-Law
Majel Barrett really wanted to do it (because she loved the book) and she wanted to do it with de Lancie so they could actually do the back-and-forth dialogue from the book, but S&S Audioworks' license didn't cover audio dramas, and this would have been borderline.
It was decided that they would turn a blind eye to the problem because, as Peter David said at a convention, no one wanted to be the one to tell Majel Barrett that she couldn't play Lwaxana Troi in an audiobook.
