I don't know how this system works and I don't want to find out by making the wrong choice in the game. So let me see if I can get this question right.

Let's say I pick Scavenging and (to pick an arbitrary number) let's say every gathering mission brings back an average of 10 resources. Can only one crew member go on a Scavenging mission at a time or can all five crew members go on different Scavenging missions at the same time?

Because in the second case I could bring back 50 resources at once and still have crafting/mission skills. But in the first case I could only get 10 resources in the same amount of time regardless, making it more viable to pick additional gathering skills.

It seems like choosing all gathering would be wasteful if your net return could potentially be 50 bulk resources whether it's 1 gathering skill or 3 gathering skills, even though the actual resource types would be more varied.
