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 audio books read by non-Star Trek actors), so tomswift2000's supposition was incorrect.

The situation with Q-in-Law was this.

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.
