Greta and Mordy and the guards are just this side of a heavy security door, looking past the reader. Mordy looks prideful, Greta looks let-down.
Mordy: Well, here we are, the end of the rainbow.
Mordy: What do you think?
Looking past Greta at what appears to be a rather mundane clam-shell bay door, with a lot of conduits and lights and monitors on each flank. A clutch of technicians are at the monitor panels.
Greta: It's a bit less than I expected.
Greta: It looks like a high-tech barn door.

Mordy: Ah. Well, this is the output section. Most of the works occupy the next four floors below this one.
Mordy: It takes up about a quarter of the main building's volume.
A technician has approached Mordy. He's gazing toward the bay door expectantly.
Tech: Sir, all the systems are on-line and functioning at 100 percent.
Tech: We can start the test whenever you're ready.
Mordy: Then by all means, démarrez-le.
