Also depends greatly on the Captains command style. Does he delegate to his subordinates? Does he prefer to have direct control over every decision made during a combat situation?
There's also the issue of familiarity. A crew that has been together for years will be able to anticipate the tactics, commands and thought processes of their shipmates far better than one that doesn't have that level of rapport, thus necessitating a more direct hand by the CO.
