This is XERXES. Primary data loop infiltrated. Primary data loop infiltrated.

The Operations Deck, also known simply as "Ops", is the fourth deck on the Von Braun and is the fourth deck visited by the Soldier in System Shock 2. This deck has also been the main objective since waking from cryo-stasis.


On this deck, the Soldier discovers that Janice Polito is dead, and the person guiding him is actually SHODAN. After SHODAN explains how The Many came to be and the final moments at Citadel Station, she requires the Soldier to hack the simulation units and give her control of the ship by infiltrating XERXES' primary data loop. There are three simulation units on this deck that need to be hacked, then the Soldier can continue on to the Recreation Deck.
