Having problems installing the Secret Ops documentation? If so, download it in standard zip format here. Apparently a corrupt version of the file replaced the original placed at the SecretOps site. Unzip in your Secret Ops directory and follow the instructions in docsread.txt. It should be viewable through your SO Launcher.

The CIC staff has just finished putting online several upgrades to the site. Most notable will probably be the Poll above. It will be updated weekly, we'll have more information in the Poll section soon. The Poll and Mail Bag buttons do not work as I write this, but those areas will be completed before long. We'll also be archiving news later today so that this main page does not take so long to load. Please note that the main startup page for the CIC has changed from index.html to index.shtml.
We are proud to welcome the premiere Wing Commander 3D model page on the internet to the CIC. Run by our own Hadrian (Why do you think it moved here anyway?). It's a bit smaller than the one that was on Hadrian's server. New models include: The TCS Midway and A C-7 Pelican Transport.
Anyone waiting for the German version of Secret Ops need wait no longer! It's now available at Origin's German Download Page, in all the same variants as the English version (full, speech, engine and chunky). Have fun!
Wonder why Secret Ops seems so hard? Apparently its difficulty level is determined by some of your answers to the registration survey! If you told it you'd played every Wing Commander, you may well have ended up starting off with a default of nightmare difficulty. Now we know what the survey was for...
