Indeed ships can have more than 1 captain, and indeed the "captain" often isn't on smaller ships. The "captain" of a ship and the rank captain are subtly different.

I wonder whether Geordi's demotion is an example of some writers being stuck in the TV mindset. Its understandable why you wouldn't want multiple captains in the TV show as it would be confusing but in a novel you can easily explain why.
