Yeah, unfortunately that's one of the hard limitations you'll pretty much just need to rewrite the scenario around. Invent an excuse to have them physically based elsewhere and only "following along" via comm, or write them a reason to separate and re-rendezvous with the player at the destination instead of accompanying them. That's all you can do, really.

Don't let that frustrate or disappoint you though: a lot of great movies became what they were because the creators had to write their way around some limitation or another. Don't resent having to change things, rather see it as an opportunity to explore angles that wouldn't have otherwise occurred to you.
