- Engage in covert operations against enemy individuals and organizations, such as: counter-intelligence, espionage, sabotage, and assassinations.
- Recover illegally seized equipment for The Resistance and its allies.
- Engage in research, development, and production of critical technologies for intelligence purposes.
Clandestine Resistance Cells
To achieve its mission, the Resistance Intelligence Network operates in numerous Clandestine Resistance Cells (CRCs) across the galaxy. Resistance Cells are led by Chiefs, who report directly to the Director and Deputy Director of the Resistance Intelligence Network. Clandestine Resistance Cells are groups of intelligence operatives who are either assigned to an area of operations, or tasked to a specific mission. These Clandestine Resistance Cells operate with strategic orders and oversight from the Resistance Intelligence Network Command, but engage in mostly independent tactical operations on a day to day basis. Clandestine Resistance Cells engage in espionage and cover operations with both official and unofficial Resistance assets. Cells receive support from the Resistance Intelligence Network in the form of finance, logistics, facilities, training, and equipment.
