The storerooms had been partially looted, but a number of useful items still lay on the shelves under a thick coat of dust. The command centre had lost a couple of pieces of furniture, but otherwise seemed intact. The humanalogue down room contained half a dozen padded pods in which humanalogues could power down and run their diagnostic routines, and a larger bed where technicians could perform light repairs. It was overhung with long, corroded stalactites of advanced engineering equipment; jointed metal arms and projectors that allowed the base’s APIs to assist in operations. Nothing here seemed to be missing.
