Vesper smiles inwardly Alex might have been with the Coalition at one time but her act of sacrifice for a D Bee showed her true inner character. He was very proud of her if anything it made him cherish her more.
"Well a vault would just be a dead end,  you sure it's not a hallway or further tunnel just a vault Keldon ?"

"Yes, my lady, thank you!" Keldon says. "You hold a debt over me which
I cannot hope to repay, but what service I can do, you but only have
to name."

Keldon takes a moment to look at the steel door. He pulls an odd
device that looks like a large calculator with wires hanging out of
it. He points at the door and after a moment strange symbols appear on
the device's screen.

"Yes, definitely reinforced." he says. "There's a large space on the
other side, I think. Probably a vault."

Oz finds himself looking up the stairs. Above he can see a room, lit
by numerous small fires. Right at the top of the stairs is a badly
charred body. There are shouts, and then another person comes into
view, a woman that Oz vaguely remembers from the ship. She's shouting
"We're done for! Head for the stairs, it's our only hope!"
