She leans forward briefly, pulling up a schematic on the overhead holo “I found two breaches in the security systems around the barracks he is contained in, neither critical or allowing access to anything, but I believe he might have caused them.

She pauses, briefly, before shaking her head, “No, sir. I... doubt... that any covert bases constructed by the Empire would be in this area. Most are generally in remote parts or concealed under high security on core worlds.”
“I see. And if we were to near any of these, do you think it would be possible to notice them.”
Your second pauses for a bit, before nodding, “I think that it is possible, the sensors might be able to pick up anomalies in... a general direction.”
