    ...my main is a stereotypical Vulcan, except that he believes in time travel which the science council deemed doesn't exist...
    The Vulcan Science Council might seem a bit hidebound, but they're scientists, not priests. The existence of time travel was proved about a century after T'Pol made her statement on the topic, when NCC-1701 accidentally discovered the temporal slingshot while escaping a nonrotating black hole (assumed nonrotating at least, as the spatial distortion caused by a rotating black hole should have triggered at least a dozen navigational alarms). (TOS: "Tomorrow Is Yesterday") Later, Starfleet used a controlled version of the same technique to send NCC-1701 backtime to observe the failed launch of a nuclear defense platform in 1968 (TOS: "Assignment: Earth") - this turned out to be a predestination paradox, where the failure of the launch (which delayed the start of World War Three) required the presence of both Gary Seven and James Kirk. It would be more than a bit ludicrous for the Science Council to continue to dogmatically deny the existence of something Starfleet is in fact using.

    Terran Empire probably shot him the moment he returned. He abandoned the Empire for too long!

    Well, they'd shoot him anyway, since the Terran Empire pulls heavily from the Roman Empire even if not being a direct evolution of it...and the Romans crucified Jesus.​​

    While possible from what I've heard Avery Brooks isn't kind of done with acting (and might have gone a bit weird in his older years) so getting him to reprise the role might be hard/expensive and Cryptic doesn't really want to use pre-existing characters unless they can get the original actor only exceptions after that rule has been in place have been Scotty (where the replacement actor was the son of the original since the original actor is dead) and Tenavik (where the original actor chose his replacement due to being unable to reprise the role because of medical reasons) I can't think of any case where they recently used a sound alike due actor not wanting to reprise the role (note that Kenneth Mitchell was willing but not capable hence his role being voiced by Sam Witwer in STO).

    Well, they could always try voice synthesis...but they'd still need to pay Brooks for the use of his voice because the program would need to be trained on it to adequately replicate it, and given the sheer amount of tedious setting tweaking that would be needed to make it sound not-robotic...at best, it would probably cost just as much as simply bringing Brooks in for a few hours to record lines.​​

    Not mention that Brooks owns the copyright to his likeness so Cryptic would need to ask his permission anyway.

    Is dead. Mirror Sisko literally died before the 2nd mirror episode. That's what that whole episode was about.

    If it's going to be anyone from DS9's mirror episodes, we have 2 probable options, the most likely of which being Bashier, since his mirror character's arrogance and attitude fits the role of emperor better than Smiley and he was the joint leader of the terran rebelion.

    The Enterprise had ready done time travel before Tomorrow is Yesterday. Don't forget The Naked Time.

    That wasn't just time travel, that was a full-on reality reset. A bunch of stuff just never happened aboard the ship (not consistently though, they still remembered the things that didn't happen).

    That's the problem when you get TV writers to write SF - they're not used to having to consider all the consequences of a plot twist. The best Trek scripts, in my opinion, were the ones that were actually written by professional (or, in David Gerrold's case, soon-to-be-professional) science fiction authors.
