Sure... if you're roleplaying someone who can mind control people or is maybe a member of an alien hivemind species. Roleplaying is quintessentially about "being" your character. Unless your character can be other characters, well...

So when did Picard take control of Geordi and fix the engines through remote Geordi control? I don't remember that episode...

This is not meant to recreate Star Trek episodes in form and function, you can tell that by how it's interactive. This is supposed to be an MMORPG set in the Star Trek universe where you are the captain of a vessel.
