Mission operations (usually shortened to Mission Ops I and II) are two stations on the bridge of most Starfleet vessels. They are responsible for providing backup processing of information received by either the Operations Officer or the Chief Science Officer. Their specific purpose and job are changed to accommodate each mission.
Mission Ops is responsible for assignment of resources according to the guidelines specified by the Ops manager, as well as resolving low-level conflicts among missions, where as primary conflicts will be directly handled by the Ops officer.
Mission Ops officers tend to serve as relief Ops officer when, for example, the Ops chief is away from their station. During alert situations, they also assist the Security officer, providing information on away teams and so forth. (Star Trek: The Next Generation Technical Manual)
