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.
No, you, as a Human in 2010, can roleplay multiple characters. It's got nothing to do with some RP mind control, it has everything to do with (yeah i'll say it) being a *good* roleplayer. I can *be* multiple characters just as easily as i can *be* one character. It's just a matter of getting into that particular characters mindset, there's no in-universe explanation required at all.
