Ok, I totally agree with this. I think that as the captain I should be able to step in and do the job of my NPC crew if I so choose. This could be managed from an NPC window on the UI.
At release there could be just a few graphics and things that a captain could do/cpmmand. Like others have stated, they can gradually release other tasks/interiors until eventually they build up enough content that you could actually have Guest NPCs and full ship interiors. I find this approach very reasonable.
