Dr. Demarcus enters the room, his hands cuffed in front of him, and he is motioned to a seat at the conference table. Two guards stand near the entrance with stun batons at the ready. "Doctor, you requested an audience, consider your request granted. What is it you would like to discuss?" Colonel Taske's voice comes through the comms channel. The doctor reiterates his position as the head of the Plexus droid project, going into further detail about how his droid is designed to update the Imperial network's code, and that droids could be adapted to send a copy of all messages to the Alliance. He is also familiar enough with the Imperial code to help them devise a system to decode the messages. He offers his assistance with those tasks, as well as any information he can provide on the other labs or the Empire to the Alliance.
"My achievements are not entirely unrecognized in the scientific community, which is why I was recruited by the Empire. I was taken from my position with a private corporation on Nubia and told to work for Imperial Intelligence or else my family would be tried as Alliance sympathizers. My wife and two children are still on Nubia and their lives may be in danger if my capture is known. I request they be extracted to safety."
