From what I understand it's more like a strenuous suggestion for the Captain to stay on board, it's still up to their discretion. The idea remains the same, though. The only problem I have with the PC bridge crew is that if some member of the crew couldn't make it, that might keep the others from playing or doing a specific mission. I don't like being handcuffed by another's reliability (or lack thereof).

I always figured that Riker's rule (I know it was Starfleet's but Riker was really the only one to enforce it.)  was nothing more than a plot device to give the first officer a purpose. 

And an oppurtunity to Riker roll.

Well there would probably be some implementation that is a player isn't there, an NPC would take their place.

But then, wouldn't they have to change the premise behind the game?  All of us wouldn't be captains anymore ... only one and the rest lower ranking officers.  (could you imagine 5 Captains on a bridge?  Oy)
