A combat information center (CIC) is an auxiliary control area on military starships and facilities used to direct combat operations.
In an alternate timeline, the USS Enterprise-D had a CIC while fighting large-scale military conflicts with the Klingons. When the Enterprise-D encountered the USS Enterprise-C near a temporal rift in 2366, Ensign Thomas was paged over the ship's intercom to report to the CIC. (TNG: "Yesterday's Enterprise")
It's unknown if in the more peacful, "regular", timeline's
Enterprise-D had such a combat info center. Its possible this area was related to the regular timeline's battle bridge.
Starfleet officers Daviomeisi and Balter were assigned to the Combat Information Center on Earth in 2372. (DS9: "Paradise Lost")
Daviomeisi and Balter appeared on a personnel assignment log Admiral Leyton was viewing.
