I believe the maximum is 25 per map. I'm well acquainted with it since on the mission I'm working on, I've hit it on all but one interior map.

There is a work around though. If you don't need the NPCs to actually be able to be spoken to via objective or "default text", you can substitute NPC Groups. You can either reskin neutral targs or reskin federation NPCs.

The benefit of the targs is that they're neutral and won't fight, and also that you can place only a single one. The benefit of the federation reskin is that they'll fight with you, and also they will use the Fed beam in animation when they appear (the targs just fade in which also may be preferable sometimes).
