Can't wait to meet Tasha Yar, though! Way to go, Cryptic!
You have to take averages into account: There are 10 Million ships in service, but only 2 million captains, an average of 5 ships per captain. I know I have around 20+ ships on my main (and about 5ish on my other 2 characters), so there must be a fair few people with just 1 or 2 to offset me.

So even if it's counting characters per account, there's still going to be a lot of accounts that have just 1 or 2 characters.
