In pvp

Each player can man one gunner chair. As each ship can only carry one shield however two ships with a single pilot in a gunner chair each are better than one ship with two manned gunner chairs.

The only advantage is that one player can be positioned in a ship and a second player can have his avatar (or alt account) on it, ready to log in if needed.

In pve

Any ship can carry an infinite amount of avatars around that just hopped on, on- or offline. There is no advantage to having multiple online characters on a pve ship, outside of roleplaying.
