“You say guards—what happened to those responsible?”

Season 9—Chapter 3—Disruption—Episode 8—Several hours later the Doctors… Yatters and Boomer reached the Superior WI entry into the Duluth-Superior harbor—and began their search for a new laboratory location.
They passed several facilities on the Superior side of the harbor—like the one in the illustration, before finding an abandoned dock and warehouse.
It was perfect.
“We can hide the speedboats in the slip next to the warehouse.”
“Yes, Dr. Boomer, and extend the slip under the warehouse. First, however, we must see if we can purchase the place.”

“That is inconvenient.”
