The two actions that are always available are move and recharge. the other actions are made available through interfacing their corresponding officer or by finding a planet that has a question mark.
hope that helps

Just got it, watched the tutorial and still no idea. What are the two in the boxes to the right of the other three for? Why did one of my chosen three turn yellow? Why when I clicked on the scan top choice of five did it do nothing? This really needs an ingame playing tutorial. Not new to gaming but its very different from most games. Always felt better playing board games when someone had the game and explained it as you all played. I like the look and idea but not getting how it works and what everything does. Why do the robots on the left have a petrol bar that starts to fill up? I know this is making me sound like a real noob but I'm guessing I'm not the only one in this boat.

The officers not on Shift are interfaced and give their interface abilities to the ship. Read the interface abilities to see what that officer will do. Some allow you to repair your ship others remove the fatigue of the most fatigued officer on Shift. We addressed this in the tutorial video at about the 14 second mark. Hope that helps
