Just a random thought I just had, while Chekov being assigned to a redshirt was mostly used for laughs and they needed a main character to replace Scotty, do you think the writers possibly did it as a nod to Chekov not being on the bridge in Space Seed?
Since one of the Treklit explanations is Chekov was in engineering during "Space Seed" and the one of the writers is a Treklit fan, I wouldn't be surprised.
