The Captain heading up the platoon of marines she'd brought with her called her over their encrypted communications network and let her know that the men she'd sent back had made it and the two squads she'd requested were on the way, he was also sending another two up onto the roof to act as overwatch and a breaching force if need be. That left the last twenty marines watching the entrance and landing grounds with everyone else still there and the security forces. Vulpesen's men came up behind her and she nearly turned to fire on them and gave them a nod of recognition instead. They were a good ways back behind her by this point as she'd been advancing under her own covering fire and she turned back to the hall before her with a shrug to herself. The reinforcements weren't needed but they were appreciated.
At the end of the hall a black-armored sith trooper poked his upper body around the corner to fire at her and fell to the floor with a few holes punched through his armor for his trouble. She wasn't close enough for them to try grenades luckily, still, she was tired of pushing her luck and ducked into what looked like an unoccupied room to the south. She could wait there for her own troops before continuing on. Her repeating blaster was down to less than a quarter-charge and she couldn't shake the feeling that she was running out of time. Taking a risk she activated a few cycles of her suit's penetrating radar and studied the return pings. There were a lot of people scattered throughout a series of rooms to the south and the large one across the hall from her looked empty. "Damn it doctor, where are you?" She worried aloud to herself.
