This is the primary reason most of my missions are "relayed" to the player via a bridge officer. That way it's like the first officer came in and said, "Captain, we have some new orders." The only time I didn't do that was when I picked a random NPC and acted as if the Captain was receiving a secret sub-space communication.
Neither require any suspension of disbelief to work.
