What is the secret mission mechanic? Is it as simple as giving each player a card allowing them to score extra VP if their objective is reached? What is an example of an objective?

Yup! It's that simple. You get two at the beginning of the game, choose one, and if you fulfill the requirements then you get some bonus VP. One example is trying to collect the most Diplomatic planets.

The secret missions are a neat little twist that are easy to introduce to the game, even with new players.

Do you reveal them mid-game upon triggering them (e.g., "turn 5 I colonized my third diplomatic planet and everyone else only has two right now, so I flip my secret objective", and they contribute towards ending the game faster), or are they only revealed at the end of the game (so you have to try to make sure you're in the lead on diplomatic planets in the final turn, and nobody knows who will be getting secret objective bonus points and who won't)?

Only revealed at the end.
