Actually the temporary locations like the bridge and fleet starbase will persist for about 5 minutes after you leave it. Then it gets unloaded from the server. This is done to reduce server load and has been done in online games going all the way back to Everquest.

I've switched characters from one on the SB and when I switched back a couple minutes later they were still on the SB. If I leave it for any length of time it drops me back to the sector space.
