The MRM-12-R Operator's console is a computer where the player can launch or self-destruct 11 missiles. The console is located in the military base in Fort Goks. The player needs to self-destruct the missiles for one of the missions for John Sheppard.
The player can learn the commands of the missiles by reading the book you get from the ex-general. The only time news about the missiles being launched is if you self destruct the missiles and the newspaper says there was a "military firework show" over Fort Goks and the government is leaving no comment.
If the player launches the missiles and exits the base you get arrested and lose the game but this can be avoided by pressing the "x" on the bottom of the screen instead of the "exit" button.
