And just who would that have been that died in the transporter for that one-off scene? Chekov? Sulu? Uhura?

"Matt Franklin" was chosen precisely because it was no one we would have cared about. The episode was about Scotty, not about someone else that we have an emotional attachment to just being told that they're dead.
But they had all been dead by the time anyways.
You misunderstood me. When the Jenolan crashed and Scotty and Matt Franklin went into the pattern buffer, Chekov, Sulu and Uhura were very much alive. That's the OP's point: he wanted a known character instead of Franklin.
