Lana smiled as she turned her attention from the conversation to the screens around her. The sector specialists were busy at their workstations while two guards loitered outside the damaged entrance. She sipped from a container of water and turned again to the wall behind the titanium glass, unable to pinpoint how one of the sensitive keypads had made it outside the compound or when. She strode to the wall again, quelling the urge to open it.

"Very well," she said. "We can access the emerops locations around here with Elise's security forces. I can unlock them remotely, and you can send her in for supplies. But doing so will leave us vulnerable if something else happens."

"I understand. How does the infrastructure look?"
