But Tucker was killed off in the finale 'These Are The Voyages'? How would a season 5 work?

Simple question to ask here: Why? Why would they need to recruit a new engineer?
If there was ever to be a season 5, when would it be set? There are a few years gap between Terra Prime

(and whose to say it can't be!) surely there can be a way to bring him back...they did it before - I'm looking at you, Spock!
