THat area had me going for a while as well
....Here is the solution
A. In the room next to the friggin smart ass droid there is a metal box/container. In it is a sonic "something" that is used for recording voice. After you get this speak to the droid again, this time a new option will appear(it'll have the word 'sonic' next to it). Then go back to the friggin' admin level (end room down the hall from where the game 1st starts) and bring up the holo recording involving the security officer. Same thing here, use the new 'sonic' record option. Then go all the way back to the holo computer on the droid main. level and use the new 'sonic' option when viewing the dudes recordings. OR
B. Bash the holo computer and it will release the lock on the next room u need to get to. Less XP though.
Game just gets better IMHO after you get off that rock that is Perasus. KOTOR is a HELL of a lot better.
