I bet it's the same reason people from France speak English, just with French accents. The majority of English-speaking audiences don't want to read subtitles. Having actors speak English, but with accents, is a trope that filmmakers developed to simplify dealing with other languages.

Space Seed was supposed to be a bottle episode. As few of the regular cast was to be used as possible.

It's probably Stargate. The registration record for startrek.com lists 1995-02-27 as the creation date and for stargate.com as 1986-08-05. This date corresponds not to the movie stargate, but to the much earlier TV show "The Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers" in which one of the episodes involved finding a "stargate".
