The Senate air system was stacked on top of the water system, with linked passageways that allowed workers to commute between the two systems. Interactive orientation blueprints—laser-embossed schematics—of the Senate system could be found scattered throughout, upon walls, allowing workers to more easily access desired work areas and access points.
In 24 BBY, the air-tunnels were to be used as a delivery system for the Zone of Self-Containment drug by the galactic criminal Granta Omega and mad scientist Jenna Zan Arbor, as part of a plan to assassinate Supreme Chancellor Palpatine and thousands of Senators and their top advisors, but the plot was ultimately foiled by the Jedi (though not without casualties).
Behind the scenesEdit
