While Perpetual were making the game, it was becoming quite clear that they were going down the NPC road, but now that the project has been rebooted - we really have no way to know.

Hey Welcome!!

Like the two previous posters mentioned it was going down the avenue of NPCs, but personally I believe that it would be cool for people to have the option to serve aboard a player ran ship.  I am pretty sure not everyone will want to be a captain.  But we will see...

Personally, I would love engineering or command.

engineering does sound like an intresting job, consiidering you have to look after the warp core, do maintinance, basically its a job that has a lot of responsibility

  Originally, from what I understood it was going to be a mix of both, with npc's filling in if players may not be available for a mission. Who knows what the new devs have in mind, but I doubt that it would be much different.

   I would be very surprised if you could start off as a ships captain the moment you sign into the game, while many games allow this rather easily, I hope this wont be the case with STO.  Trek is a very different universe from most and how a captain conducts himself ( especially in starfleet ) is an important reflection of that.
