To answer that question, it depends on how many Bridge Officer (BOff) slots your captain has. You get 8(?) normally through gameplay, but you can purchase more in the C-Store. You can't use them all simultaneously, but you can switch between them whenever you want for ship stations or ground assignments.
Edit: It's also why character slots are sparse unless you pay extra for more. Each captain character has:
his or her information (stats)
the info for all of your costumes
info for all of your BOffs (and their costumes)
info for all of your ships (and their skins/ costumes)
Each character takes up quite a bit of space on the databse due to all the extra baggage.
