The Ministry of the Public Security, Electronic Division
It was a lavishly decorated government building. Stone and marble columns adorned with handcrafted brass lighting amid high towering ceilings. The polished tile floors were draped in long ruby carpets and decorated with finely potted ferns. It was a beautiful place but it was also quite empty. Clean and scrubbed, but strangely so. As if this place never got visitors. As if it the floors had never seen a dirty shoe.
Phil walked into the grand lobby and brushed past the singular woman at the desk. She was an android with nothing to say. Security was military grade and that meant even the receptionist was a robot these days. The elevator opened automatically and Phil entered briskly. Hitting the button for the second floor. He kept this thoughts to himself as the elevator quickly arrived and the door once again swished open. Then a second set of blast doors opened just beyond that. It was impressive really, but he let that pass.
He headed out into the hall and walked down the long gilded hallways. A fortress disguised as a paradise hotel. A humanoid sentinel droid waited for him at the end of hall without moving. Another set of blast doors swished opened to allow him entry into the Sitting Room. A paradise hotel with quad-panel ballistic glass windows. From the looks of It, it was a beautiful evening outside. It made him smirk as the doors swished closed behind him.
"There you are. We've been waiting."
It was the voice of Jeremiah Kuze. An ugly old man with long white hair, standing resolutely stoic in a black business suit that seemed much to large for him. He was the Administrator today.
"Well. Where are the others? I thought you planned on bringing a few hackers to this meeting too."
Phil nodded and brushed against a white leather couch,
"Oh. They're on there way. Should I wait for them done in the lobby?"
"No. I'll have the hostess point them our way and a droid escort them up."
A beautiful woman with brilliant red hair entered the room quietly and smirked,
"Escorting hackers with a droid? You truly are losing your touch Kuze. Hm?"
The old man didn't flinch. The red haired woman simply smiled and took a seat. She wore a glittering silver business suit with a pencil skirt. Phil couldn't help but notice she was strikingly attractive. She seemed immortal and he couldn't place her age. Probably a Zeltron Intelligence Agent who had undergone cosmetic surgery to hide her skin pigment. The hair color gave it away.
"Phil Treymore. This is Commander Glauda Benise. Republic Intelligence. ...Commander, this is Jedi Phil Treymore."
"Now. Since everyone's almost settled. We'll wait for the others before we begin."
Kuze withdrew a pen remote and tapped it lightly. The glass windows began to flicker and soon displayed a massive holo-graphic image of the Jedi Temple. It was an electronic blueprint taken during the reconstruction. Phil didn't even realize that Republic Intel had these kind of specs. He could see everything.
Kuze turned and spoke with distinction,
"Take a seat Mr. Treymore. The briefing will begin shortly."
Glauda gave a wave of her hand and offered a sarcastic quip. She hated formal meetings,
"Oh boy. I just can't wait."
