OOC: Yes, it still seems to be trying to draw energy.

As they move the orb closer to the machinery, suddenly, on what seemed
to be completely dead equipment, a red light starts flickering.
Getting closer reveals a panel called "Comms", and the red light is
"Establishing contact". Then it turns off and a green light next to it
lights up, with the description "Link established." A digital read-out
called "D.Coord Link Src" displays an odd set of numbers

Vesper instantly recognizes this is a dimensional coordinate system.
