The CIC or Combat Information Center is the brain of every ship currently deployed.
Every information gathered by the different stations and sensors are gathered and processed here. Be it engineering data or the current temperature of the ships main gun, the CIC has access to everything.
The CIC is also always the place the ships Captains primary interface is located. All members of a ships CIC crew are heavily augmented, in order to process the huge amount of data that is focused here.
