There are some things about gameplay that suggest this is the case for me.
For every STO character, that is to say, the player's captain, each of that captain's BOffs, and each of that captain's ships, each of those takes up the same amount of data storage space as a single conventional MMORPG character. This is part of the reason it is far simpler to treat DOffs like inventory items instead of fully customizing them with appearances or adjustable stats like a BOff or player character.
