  1. Take the red teleporter near the red stair set in the hub area (if you have not already pressed the switch to the south that opens this area, do so and then go back to the red teleporter) and head into the red-floored area. Just before the room with red columns, look on the right side of the southern computer terminal for a small red button. You need to shoot this button, then take the metal lift to the right of the terminal up to get a number of supplies. (sector 2200)
