    Samus's Ship
    ------------
    
    When you have control of Samus, look down and press the large panel there to
    lay in a new course.  Shortly after that, you'll be told to confirm your
    indentity.  Look up and press the panel thing there, then enter the code
    displayed on the screen (in green squares) by selecting the appropriate symbols
    (in red trapezoids).  The code should be as follows:  press the second panel,
    press the seventh panel, press the fifth panel, and then press the first panel.
    
    Once you've identified yourself, you'll be told to use your thrusters to dock
    with the flagship.  Look to your left and press the blinking green and red
    circle to release the thruster controls, then move your Wiimote closer to the
    screen to activate the thrusters.  Next stop, G.F.S. Olympus!
    
                                === G.F.S. Olympus ===

    Docking Bay 5
    -------------
    
    Walk directly forward until you're prompted to shoot the four targets near the
    Federation Marines.  Shoot the center of each of the four targets to get your
    very first objective.
    
     -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    |Objective:     Go to Briefing Room                                           |
    |                                                                             |
    |Area:          Flagship G.F.S. Olympus                                       |
    |                                                                             |
    |Information:  "Samus, welcome to the flagship G.F.S. Olympus.  Admiral Dane  |
    |               is waiting for you in the briefing room."                     |

       1 Gold Credit:  10 consecutive hits on a training drone
    
       4 Red Credits:  Scans for Federation Marine, Fleet Mechanic, Halberd-Class
                       Turret, and Training Drone
    
    1 Friend Voucher:  20 consecutive hits on a training drone
    
    Once you've gotten your objective, take some time to scan things around the
    room (there're nine log entries - the turret's above the big cargo room door).
    The Training Drones can be used for a little mini-game thing where the point is
    to shoot one of them to knock it up in the air, then continue shooting it to
    keep it off of the ground for as long as possible.  The panel on the floor
    keeps track of your highest score - shoot one of them ten times in a row, and
    you'll get a "Gold Credit" (credits can be used to purchase bonus material in
    the game, you can check how many you've collected by going to your inventory
    tab and selecting the Bonus Credits submenu).  Shoot one of the drones twenty
    times in a row, and you'll get a "Friend Voucher" (basically the same thing as
    a credit, but you trade them to other players to get "Friend Credits").  I got
    bored with it after that, so I dunno if you can get any other credits beyond
    twenty or not.
    
    Anyway, when you're done scanning stuff and playing with the drones, head up
    the ramp to the right of the big cargo door and shoot the smaller door there to
    continue.

    LOG:  Female Fleet Trooper
    LOG:  Male Fleet Trooper
    
    2 Red Credits:  Scans for Female Fleet Trooper and Male Fleet Trooper
    
    Scan the crewmen to your left to grab two more log entries, then turn to the
    right and look for the two red switches high on the wall.  Hit each one of them
    with a charge shot, and the ramps leading to the upper level will move into
    place.  Head up there, then go through the next door.
    
    -------------
    Docking Bay 4
    -------------
    
    LOG:  Blast Shield
    
    Scan things if you'd like, but the only new entry will be the blast shield on
    the door at the opposite end of the docking bay (make sure you scan it prior to
    entering the access code).  To get rid of the blast shield, you'll have to
    enter an access code in the panel to the left of the door.  First, though,
    you'll need to find your code.  There's a second panel on the pilar thing in
    the middle of the docking bay that will tell you the code if you walk up to it
    and press it.  Head back to the panel to the left of the door and push in the
    13576 code, then shoot the door and head through it.

    Security Station

    LOG:  Hunter Ghor
    LOG:  Olympus-Class Battleship
    
     1 Red Credit:  Scan for Hunter Ghor
    
    1 Blue Credit:  Scan for Olympus-Class Battleship lore entry
    
    Scan the various consoles as well as the person that's being screened for
    contamination, then interact with the controls on the left side of the door to
    the contamination screening area.  You'll have to pull your Wiimote away from
    your screen and rotate it to the left to operate the door lock.
    
    Once you're inside, interact with the panel that comes down to initiate a scan.
    Once the scan is complete, exit the scanning area through the door to your left
    and proceed to the next room (don't miss the Olympus-Class Battleship scan if
    you haven't already gotten it).
    
    ---------------
    Security Access
    ---------------
    
    Nothing much to do here other than scan a few consoles and talk to the mechanic
    (who's too busy to bother talking to you anyway).  Head for the door at the
    other end.
    
    --------------
    Command Lift A
    --------------
    
    Interact with the panel on the right when you first come in to activate the
    lift, then step on the hologram to move up to the second level.  Head through
    the door there to continue.
    
    ------------------
    Flag Bridge Access
    ------------------
    
    Nothing to do here except turn to your right and head through the next door.
    
    -----------
    Flag Bridge
    -----------
    
    Head to a ramp on either side of the bridge to get up to the second level.
    Skip talking to the dude in the hallway and head through the door in the other
    hallway instead.
    
    -----------
    Lift Access
    -----------
    
    LOG:  Save Station
    
    Destroy the crates with a charge shot to gain access to the door in the middle
    of the hallway.  Scan the save station inside, then walk into it to save your
    game.  Head back out the way you came when you're done.
    
    -----------
    Flag Bridge
    -----------
    
    The Marine blocking the other hallway will move out of your way when you talk
    to him, so proceed through the door behind him.
    
    --------------
    Meeting Access
    --------------
    
    Nothing to do here other than walk to the other side.
    
    ----------
    Ready Room
    ----------
    
    OBJECTIVE COMPLETE:  Go to Briefing Room
    
    Walking through the door will complete your current objective.  Sit tight and
    watch the scene that happens.  Eventually, you'll get control of Samus again.
    Scan the consoles if you'd like, then head back through the door.
    
    --------------
    Meeting Access
    --------------
    
    Still nothing to do here, just head through the door on the other side.

    LOG:  Fleet Admiral Dane
    
    1 Red Credit:  Scan for Fleet Admiral Dane
    
    Scan Fleet Admiral Dane right away, then drop down to the lower level and exit
    the bridge through the door.
    
    ------------------
    Flag Bridge Access
    ------------------
    
    LOG:  Pirate Militia
    
    1 Red Credit:  Scan for Pirate Militia
    
    As you move forward, some Space Pirates will blast a hole in the wall in front
    of you.  Scan one for a log entry, then fight them off.  Head into the hallway
    where they came from and go through the door there.
    
    ---------------------
    Port Observation Deck
    ---------------------
    
    LOG:  Space Pirate Boarding Pod
    
     1 Red Credit:  Scan for Space Pirate Boarding Pod
    
    1 Blue Credit:  Keep the Marine alive
    
    Run to the opposite end of the area and scan the pirate ship as it approaches
    for a log entry, then gun down the two pirates when they attack.  (You'll get a
    Blue Credit for saving the marine).  Exit this room through the door at the
    end.
    
    ----------------
    Xenoresearch Lab
    ----------------
    
    1 Blue Credit:  Keep the Marine alive
    
    Immediately turn left and destroy the two Crawltanks that're attacking the
    Marine (you'll get a Blue Credit if he survives).  Don't worry about scanning
    them, you'll have another chance to do that shortly.  Instead, move past the
    Marine and go through the door on the left at the end of the walkway.
    
    ----------
    Lab Access
    ----------
    
    1 Friend Voucher:  Shoot the emergency door button in time to save the Marine
    
    Run forward, and a ship will crash into the Olympus.  Once you have control of
    Samus again, immediately look for the red light above the hole in the ship (it
    should have little indicator brackets on it, you can lock onto it if you want).
    If you shoot this red button thing fast enough, an emergency door will come
    down and seal the corridor before the second Marine gets blown out into space
    (and you'll get a Friend Voucher as a reward).  Regardless of whether you save
    the second Marine or not, you'll still need to head back to the Xenoresearch
    lab, since you won't be able to continue down this path.

    LOG:  Armored Pirate Militia
    LOG:  Crawlmine
    LOG:  Crawltank
    
    3 Red Credits:  Scans for Armored Pirate Militia, Crawlmine, and Crawltank
    
    Scan one of the Armored Pirate Militia as soon as you can, then kill all three
    of them.  Pick up the energy cell that one of them drops and examine the
    generator thing on one side of the bottom level of the lap.  Push your Wiimote
    towards your screen and rotate it to the right to lock the energy cell into
    place.
    
    More enemies will flood into the room.  Scan one of the small ones for the
    Crawlmine log entry, then scan one of the big ones for the Crawltank entry.
    Fight off as many as you can until the panels on the floor are destroyed, then
    activate your morph ball and roll into one of the holes where the panels used
    to be.  Roll your way through the path in the floor until you find a thin tube
    thing to roll into.

    -----------------
    
    ENERGY TANK:  Kinda hard to miss.
    
    Roll through here, destroying walls with your bombs (one of which will get you
    an energy tank, there's no way to avoid it).  When you get to the end just
    after the energy tank, you'll need to boost yourself up a little to get out.
    Either use the boost a bomb gives you when it explodes or jerk the controller
    half of your Wiimote upwards very quickly to hop.
    
    ----------------
    Disposal Chamber
    ----------------
    
    LOG:  Bomb Slot
    
    Stand up and scan the panel to release the shield from the bomb slot, then scan
    the bomb slot for a log entry.  Activate your morph ball again and bomb or hop
    your way into the center of the slot, then plant a bomb in it.
    
    ------------
    Repair Bay A
    ------------
    
    Fight your way through the pirates and crawltanks as you work your way up the
    series of ramps and ledges around the outside of the room.  Your ultimate goal
    is the door in one of the top corners.
    
    -----------------
    Munitions Storage

    Woo, a missile launcher!  Grab it, then head back into the repair bay.
    
    ------------
    Repair Bay A
    ------------
    
    Now that you have some missiles, you can clear the debris that's blocking your
    access to the control panel for the huge door.  Hit the debris with a missile,
    then approach the panel and use your hand on it to open the doors.

    LOG:  Aeromine
    
     1 Red Credit:  Scan for Aeromine
    
    1 Blue Credit:  Keep the Marine alive
    
    There're four red circle things above the door on the other side.  Shoot them
    all as fast as you can, and the bridge will extend (speed is important, the
    Marine won't survive if you're too slow).  A cluster of new flying enemies will
    attack you, so scan one of them for a log entry.  They'll turn red one at a
    time, which is your indication of which one to fire at (only the red one will
    be able to be damaged).  When you've eliminated them all, cross the bridge and
    enter the door to the save room on the left.

    Save your game, then return to the Repair Bay Shaft.

    LOG:  Berserker Lord
    
     1 Red Credit:  Scan for Berserker Lord
    
    1 Gold Credit:  Defeat Berserker Lord
    
    Scan the boss as soon as it appears for a log entry, then prepare yourself for
    a fight.  Your first target should be the two red spots near the enemy's
    armpits - if you destroy those, it'll start tossing blue org things into the
    air.  Shoot those orbs when they get close to you, and they'll reflect right
    back at him.  After enough of them, his armor will crack, and you'll be able to
    gun him down with regular power beam shots in no time.  Board your ship as soon
    as it comes back, then press the blinking panel to land on Norion.

    After you've chatted with the Marine, head for the door leading to the long
    elevator shaft.  You'll have to shoot the four small circle locks on the
    outside of it to get the door to open, so go ahead and do so.  There's another
    door right inside that one with another circle lock thing on it, so go ahead
    and shoot that one as well.  You'll be able to enter the small room there now
    and grab the Grapple Lasso upgrade as well as a Lore entry from scanning the
    panel in there.
    
    Exit the small room and head farther down the hall to find another door.  Scan
    the panel to the left to activate a control unit for it, then inspect the
    control unit.  Pull your Wiimote away from the TV, rotate it to the left, and
    then push it back towards the TV to activate the elevator.  Step onto the
    hologram to get up to the upper level, then head through the door up there.

    Take out the pirate and the two crawltanks, then head up to the door.  Scan it
    to get the Mounted Blast Shield entry, then lock onto it with your Z button.
    Whip the analog half of your Wiimote towards the screen (like you're casting a
    fishing line) to extend your grapple lasso, then jerk it back away from the
    screen to rip the shield off of the door.

    MISSILE:  Use your grapple lasso to yank the door off of the panel to the right
              as soon as you enter the room, then activate the controls to get
              access to a morph ball maze thing.
    
    As soon as you enter this room, you should be able to hear the classic noise
    that indicates there's an item nearby.  The hinges on the cover to the panel on
    the right shortly after you enter the room are weak - use your grapple lasso to
    rip the cover right off of it.  Activate the controls behind it to gain access
    to a morph ball hole directly to your left.  Enter it, then work your way
    through the area with your bombs, morph ball jumps, and the gusts of air.  Exit
    the morph ball area by blowing up the fan to the right of the missiles.
    
    Head for the other side of this room now.  Some of those flying shielded
    enemies will attack, so wipe them out as fast as you can.  At the other end of
    the room, you'll find some debris blocking your path.  Grapple it out of the
    way, then roll through the tunnel.

    Morph into a ball and jump into the little tunnel area to your right when you
    come into the room.  You'll grab an energy tank in the process, but that's just
    an added bonus - your main purpose in getting into this tunnel is to roll in it
    to the other side of the room without getting fried on the floor.  Wait for
    the moving part of the wall to retract, then quickly roll along the wall to the
    other side and head through the door.

    Pirates will attack you as soon as you walk into the main part of this area.
    Scan the ones in the middle to get the Pirate Trooper log entry, then kill them
    all.  The Space Pirate ATC (which you should also scan for a log entry) will
    then dump some Space Pirate Militia (another log entry) into the area.  Lock
    onto them and rip their shields away with your grapple lasso, then blast them.
    Two Aerotroopers will appear (your fourth log entry), so fight them off.
    Finally, blast the front of the ATC until it blows up.
    
    After the scene that occurs, select your Command Visor (hold down the (-) key
    and point your cursor to the lower-right part of the visor selection screen).
    You should see an icon in the middle of the landing area, which you'll be able

    Hunter Gandrayda will tell you to take care of the generator.  Start by walking
    to the far side of the room and jumping up to the controls on the wall.  Use
    them, and a morph ball hole will appear.  The game will turn you around
    automatically, so when you regain control of Samus, jump over the hole and
    head back to the door.  The morph ball hole is to your right shortly before you
    reach the door.
    
    Enter the morph ball hole and roll your way through the tubes, bombing the
    purple stuff to get a boost when necessary.  You'll need to drop a bomb in all
    three of the bomb slots that're glowing, which will extend three pieces of a
    platform above the room.  Continue working your way through the tubes until the
    very end to get onto that platform, then put a bomb in the bomb slot on the
    generator.
    
    Hmm, interesting boss battle here.  Start by scanning Meta Ridley for a log
    entry as soon as you can, then concentrate on adjusting your fall with your
    analog stick to keep yourself off of the walls.  Meanwhile, firing downwards at
    Ridley's mouth the whole time.  When you find yourself really close to him,
    continue hitting his mouth, but try to hit his hands when they start to turn
    red, too.  Eventually, you'll wear him down all the way, and you'll find
    yourself back in the Generator room.

    Scan stuff if you'd like, then turn to your left and double-jump to the ledge

    then turn around and use your grapple lasso to yank the large chunk of wall
    down (it'll take the rest of the bridge with it, but it'll provide you with a
    way to cross later).
    
    There's another ledge on the right side of the gate, so jump up there now.  One
    more jump will get you to the pilar thing in the middle, where you'll see a
    morph ball hole.  Roll into it, then roll a little to the left and drop down
    the path that leads to a bomb slot.  Drop a bomb, and the game will let you out
    of the slot.  Of course, some enemies will also be released...  so scan one of
    them for a log entry.  To kill them, you'll have to wait until they start
    spinning, then shoot the green stuff that forms in the middle of their circle.
    
    Anyway, there's a ledge behind you when you get released from the bomb slot.
    You can get up there using the slightly lower section to the left.  Skip the

    ahead and roll into it.  Drop a bomb in the slot at the end, and the gate will
    open for you.
    
    Another new enemy will be released from to your right, so scan it for a log
    entry.  Jump to the platform over there, then continue going from platform to
    platform until you get to the gate.  Inside, you'll see a morph ball hole.
    Before you bother going in it, use your grapple lasso on the small sphere stuck
    on the right side of the path until it's pulled free.  Get inside the path
    when the sphere's out of the way and make your way to the exit on the right.
    
    When you get out, stand up and scan the nearby enemy for a log entry, then go
    in the door right behind them.

    ENERGY TANK:  In plain sight, it'd be kinda hard to miss.
    
    LOG:  Golden Age
    
    1 Blue Credit:  Scan for Golden Age lore entry
    
    Grab the energy tank, then use your grapple lasso to remove the panel from
    the wall behind it.  Scan the picture that was under the panel for a Lore
    entry, then head back into the Gateway.
    
    -------
    Gateway
    -------
    
    This time, roll all the way through the morph ball path to the exit on the
    other side of the room.  Quickly get up and scan one of the bats for a lore
    entry if you didn't do it earlier, then use a missile on the door and head
    through.

    LOG:  Shelbug
    
    MISSILE:  Look up and to the right shortly after entering the room from the
              Gateway.  Blast the statue there, then jump up to the ledge where it
              was and follow the path.
    
    1 Red Credit:  Scan for Shelbug
    
    Immediately scan the small enemy on the wall in front of you for a log entry,
    then jump up to the first ledge and look up and to the left.  Blast the statue
    there, then jump up to the ledge and face the other side of the hallway.  Jump
    over to that path, then follow it all the way to the other side to find a
    missile expansion.  Jump back down to the floor right outside of the alcove
    once you've got the missiles.
    
    The Phazon vines here can only be damaged while you're in hyper mode, so
    activate your PED and blast the blue spheres until the vines clear away (don't
    forget to deactivate your PED as soon as you're done).  Head through the path
    and deal with the Hoppers, then head through the next door.

    1 Blue Credit:  Scan for Age of Science lore entry
    
    Drop down to the lowest level, and a fight will occur.  Scan one of the two
    Reptilicus Hunters for a log entry, then blast them both to make the statue at
    the other end of the court move.  Head into that hallway, then look to your
    left.  Shoot the center of the panel there to make three panels light up.
    Watch the order they light up in, then shoot the three panels in that same
    order.  Scan the picture that's revealed for a Lore entry, then turn around and
    go through the door.

    LOG:  Snatcher
    
    MISSILE:  Use the Snatchers to get up to the higher part of the morph ball area
    
    2 Red Credits:  Scans for Korba and Snatcher
    
    Drop down to the lower area and blast the three flying enemies, then look at
    the wall to the left to find two types of enemies (both of which will give you
    log entries).  Head back up towards the ramp where you first entred the room
    and use your scan visor to find a cracked section of rock, then bomb it to
    enter a morph ball hole.  The little worm things here will collect on your
    morph ball until the start to move you towards the Korba up above, but you can
    still control which way you move with your analog stick.  As soon as enough
    Snatchers are on you and you start moving, hold left on the analog stick until
    you make it all the way up the far left path.  Grab the missile expansion, then
    fall back down and use more Snatchers to get up to the path on the right.
    
    Once you're out of morph ball mode, use your grapple lasso to pull the cover
    off of the statue, then blast it to reveal a door.

    Scan the grapple point for a log entry, then use your newly acquired grapple
    swing to grapple your way over the chasm.  Head up the ramp and jump up to the
    door.
    
    -----------
    Grand Court
    -----------
    
    Head back to the main court area, then look for the alcove on the left side of
    the golem.  Turn to your left when you enter the alcove and follow the path
    until you reach the top.  Kill the two gel puffers near the grappling points,
    the grapple your way over to the other side of the room.  Use your grapple
    lasso on the square panels to reveal a morph ball path, then use the path to
    get up to the door.

    way for a log entry.
    
    -------
    Gateway
    -------
    
    Roll through the morph ball tunnel and exit it through the hole in the middle,
    then walk to the main part of the Gateway.  Reptilicus Hunters will be roaming
    the area now, so be ready to deal with them if necessary.  Jump down to the
    right to the platform you yanked off of the wall, then jump up the ledges to
    your right and drop down to the other side.  Head through the door on the right
    over here.
    
    ----------
    Crash Site
    ----------
    
    Scan one of the Shriekbats if you failed to do so earlier, then use your
    grapple swing to get over to the ship.  Use a bomb on the small circular
    cracked area on the side of the ship, then roll through the morph ball area to
    the other side.

    Scan the floating enemy for a log entry, then hit it with a charged shot to get
    rid of it.  Blast both of the clamps on the large door, then use your grapple
    lasso to quickly move all four of the rod things back into place.  Interact
    with the controls on the console that appears to complete your current

    With the satellite uplink active, you'll receive two new objectives:
    
     -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    |Objective:     Destroy Eastern Energy Signature                              |
    |                                                                             |

    |Information:  "Samus, the satellite data has revealed two powerful energy    |
    |               signatures.  We suspect they are linked to the shield's power |
    |               source.  This one is located in the eastern area of Bryyo."   |
     -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    |Objective:     Destroy Western Energy Signature                              |

    The Falls of Fire room is of no interest to you right now, so head out the
    other door instead.
    
    ----------
    Crash Site
    ----------
    
    Use the grapple point to get back over to the other side, then enter the
    Gateway area.
    
    -------
    Gateway
    -------
    
    Deal with the Hunters, then drop down to the main area.  You'll have a great
    chance to scan the Nightbarbs flying around if you missed them earlier, so
    take advantage of it if necessary.  Otherwise, use your grapple swing to get
    back over to the door to the right (where you originally entered this room a
    while ago).
    
    ------------
    Gateway Hall
    ------------
    
    LOG:  Alpha Hopper
    
    1 Red Credit:  Scan for Alpha Hopper
    
    If you didn't do it earlier, you'll have to yank the lower statue out from
    underneath the other one with your grapple lasso.  Head to the ice bridge and
    be ready for a fight.  Scan one of the Alpha Hoppers for a log entry, then
    blast them until the gates disappear.  Continue through the Gateway Hall until
    you reach the area where your ship is waiting for you.
    
    -----------------
    Cliffside Airdock
    -----------------
    
    Enter your ship and save if you'd like, then use the panel directly in front of
    Samus to see a map of Bryyo.  The Jungle dock to the left is a dead end for
    now, but if you'd like, you can head there for an energy tank before heading to
    the Fiery Airdock on the right side of Bryyo.  Pretty pointless though, so I'd
    recommend just going to the Fiery Airdock and getting the energy tank later.
    
                                  === Bryyo Fire ===
    -------------
    Fiery Airdock
    -------------
    
    LOG:  Fuel Gel
    
    Scan the substance all around the floor for a log entry, then scan the other
    stuff in the area if you'd like (you'll notice that Rundas's ship is also in
    this area).  Head through the door when you're ready.
    
    -------------
    Imperial Hall
    -------------
    
    Use charged shots to ignite the little fire things on the big doors, and they
    will rotate out of your way.  Scan the various statues in the area if you'd
    like, then head through the door on the other side.
    
    -----------------
    Gel Refinery Site
    -----------------
    
    There're a few Reptilicus Hunters hanging out here, so deal with them as you
    see fit.  You'll have to move a platform to get access to the door to the Main
    Lift - see it below and to the right of the door?  Quickly hit each of the two
    fire jet things with charged shots, then jump up to the door using the new
    platform.
    
    ---------
    Main Lift
    ---------
    
    LOG:  Age of Schism
    
    MISSILE:  Use the Snatchers in the morph ball area to get to the upper path.
    
    1 Blue Credit:  Scan for Age of Schism lore entry
    
    Turn to your right as soon as you enter the room and use your grapple lasso to
    rip the panel off of the wall.  Scan what's underneath it for a Lore entry,
    then enter the nearby morph ball tunnel.  Gather enough Snatchers on yourself
    to start floating upwards, then pull to the left right before you reach the
    Korba at the top.  Drop a bomb to free yourself from the Snatchers, then roll
    yourself through the morph ball tunnel until you reach the missile expansion.
    
    Roll back through the tunnel until you get to a flower thing that's blocking
    your path.  Bomb it, then drop down to the second morph ball tunnel slightly
    below you.  Exit the morph ball area and head through the next door.
    
    --------------
    Corrupted Pool
    --------------
    
    Deal with the two enemies, then activate your PED to destroy the vines that're
    blocking your path.  A cutscene will occur, and Samus will enter a corrupted
    state - you'll need to rapidly fire your weapon until your phazon meter thing
    is completely empty.  Use your grapple swing to get to the other side of the
    Phazon pool, then head through the door to the right.

    3 Red Credits:  Scans for Warp Hound, Gragnol Adult, and Phazon Pillbug
    
    1 Blue Credit:  Scan for Age of War lore entry
    
    When you approach the opposite side of the room, three Warp Hounds will attack.
    Scan one for a log entry, then blast them all to lower the gates.  Scan the
    wall behind the bomb slot for a Lore entry, then hit both flaming parts of the
    bomb slot with charged shots to activate it.  Hop in and drop a bomb to raise
    the central platform.
    
    Some Gragnols will be released, so deal with them when you jump to the
    platform.  There's a piece of piping on both walls that will need to be yanked
    into position with your grapple lasso, so go ahead and do that now.  Jump to
    the platform to the right of the higher pipe piece you just pulled off and
    interact with the control panel there to ignite the pump.  Blast both flaming
    parts with charged shots to roll it over, then enter the morph ball track and
    follow it all the way to the bomb slot on the other side.  Activate it the same
    way you activated the first one.
    
    Some Gragnol Adults will be released, so scan one for a log entry once you've
    rolled back to the other side of the tunnel.  Use your grapple lasso on them to
    kill them, then look around for a small sphere that you can use your grapple
    lasso on.  Fuel gel will start leaking from the large machine once you've
    yanked the plug free, so use a charge shot on the two leaks to roll the machine
    over and overload the system.
    
    Look around for two more log entries (Grab Ledge and Phazon Pillbug), then jump
    to where the machinery you just blew up was sitting.  Enter the morph ball
    tunnel there, then work your way through it to the other side and activate the
    bomb slot.  The central platform will now be at its highest level, so deal with
    the Gel Puffers and jump to the flashing green ledge to grab it.  Head through
    the door there.

    LOG:  Gel Ray
    
    MISSILE:  Hit the flaming dragon thing with charged shots until it ignites the
              vine thing, and a platform with some missiles will fall down.
    
    1 Red Credit:  Scan for Gel Ray
    
    Hit the dragon sculpture thing's mouth with charged shots, and it'll spit
    flames for a few seconds.  Time it so that the flames hit the vine to the left,
    and it'll break, dropping a platform with some missiles on it.  Keep your eyes
    open for an enemy that'll periodically jump out of the fuel gel, too, since
    scanning it will give you a log entry (patience is a must here, it could take
    you many tries to get the full scan).  Jump onto the platform, then jump to the
    door past it to continue.

    through the blue door on the other side.
    
    ----------
    Gel Cavern
    ----------
    
    Nothing much to do here, so just time your jumps over the fuel gel when it
    stops flowing from the ceiling.  The path to the right won't be accessible yet,
    so take the left one instead.  There're some Gragnols hanging out in the areas
    between fuel gel fountains, but other than that, there's pretty much nothing
    between you and the next blue door.

    Enter the main part of the Temple, and some Space Pirates will attack.  Scan
    one of the crates around the room for a log entry, then scan one of the Armored
    Space Pirates for another log entry.  Eliminate the pirates until Rundas
    appears.  Scan him for a log entry, then start firing away at him.  His armor
    will protect him, but once you hit him enough, he'll be stunned for a few
    seconds.  Run up to him and use your grapple lasso to rip his armor off.  While
    it's off, you'll be able to hurt him (you can tell if it's hurting him because
    he'll flash red instead of yellow...  not to mention that his health bar will
    start going down >_>).
    
    Activating your PED while he's vulnerable will make short work of him.  Collect
    the Ice Missiles he leaves behind, then walk into the hologram to activate the
    elevator.  Head through the door at the bottom.

    Scan one of the small enemies crawling on the wall for a log entry (and scan
    one of the Gel Rays that jump out of the fuel gel if you didn't scan one
    earlier), then use your ice missiles on the fuel gel to make temporary spots
    for you to jump over to the other side of the room.

    Interact with the controls to your right to start the fuel gel flowing into

    Taking the shortcut behind the fuel gel flow will send you directly back to the
    Imperial Hall right in front of your ship (and it'll give you a Friend Voucher
    in the process).  There're some items to get on the way back to your ship,
    though, so I suggest you save the shortcut for your return trip through this
    area later.

    MISSILE:  Use your ice missiles to create platforms and make your way down the

    Use ice missiles on the fuel gel in the hallway to the right to make platforms,
    then jump on them until you reach the missile expansion at the other end.  Use
    more ice missiles to jump your way over to the white door on the opposite side
    of the area, then use an ice missile to shatter the blast shield off of the
    door.
    
    ---------------------
    Gel Purification Site

    See the little red dot on the pipe thing on the ceiling?  Shoot it, and a
    grapple point will be activated.  Grapple it, then hold onto it until the next
    red dot is activated on the next part of the ceiling.  Shoot it while you're
    still hanging, then grapple over to the second grappling point.  Do this same
    process again to grapple the third point and head through the door.

    MISSILE:  Use your grapple lasso to rip the loose pipes away to your right
              (when entering from Gel Purification Site).
    
    Turn to your right and use your grapple lasso on the weakened pipes, then grab
    the missile expansion behind them.  Jump down and head through the blue door on
    the other side of the room.

    bomb jump where you see the moving piston thing in the upper-left).  When you
    roll out on the top of the ship, you can grab a missile expansion above the
    grappling point.  Jump back down and enter the ship.

    Blast the Gel Puffers out of your way, then freeze the fuel gel streams with
    your ice missiles.  Use the ice clumps to jump over to the other side, then get
    in the bomb slot and drop a bomb to activate the golem.  Use an ice missile on
    the door at the bottom and head through.
    
    ------------
    Hidden Court
    ------------
    
    When you've taken out both Warp Hounds, a bomb slot will be activated in front
    of the golem.  Drop a bomb in there, and he'll crack a cover plate off of the
    vine attached to one of his legs.  Hit the vine with a charged shot where it
    touches the wall to ignite it.
    
    Turn around now and look at the wall.  See where another vine is attached to
    the big disc thing?  Shoot it with a charged shot to ignite it.  Now look to
    the right of the golem and find the morph ball passage in the wall.  Use an ice
    missile on the fuel gel fountain, then quickly get in the morph ball passage
    and work your way over the ice before the fuel gel melts it.  Follow the morph
    ball path until it dead-ends, then drop a bomb where the vine is attached to
    the wall to ignite it.  Exit the morph ball passage via the left path.
    
    There's a weak part in the wall near where you first entered this room that can
    be broken with a missile.  Do so now, then jump up in there and hit the final
    vine with a charged shot to free the golem.  Drop a bomb in the bomb slot one
    more time to get access to a tunnel leading to the Ruined Shrine.
    
    -------------
    Ruined Shrine

    ENERGY TANK:  Inside the fractured golem fragment at the bottom of the shrine
    
    Drop all the way down to the floor in the middle of the shrine and bomb the
    fractured golem fragment to get an energy tank, then jump your way back up to
    the platform where you were when you first came in.  Look around on the walls
    for various hives and vines to destroy with charged shots.  When you knock the
    large statue to the right loose, it'll fall to the left, giving you a grapple
    point.  Swing your way over to the other side of the room, then jump up on the
    fallen statue.
    
    Make another quick sweep for hives, then continue moving your way up.  You'll
    have to loosen some more chunks of statues and stuff, but the only part that
    might confuse you is that there's a chunk of crystalized fuel gel on top of the
    high section of statue.  You might need to jump up to get a clear shot at it.
    Use the grappling point that becomes available when the statue falls, then work
    your way through the path until you can get to the blue door.

    Fight off the hoard of enemies that attacks you when you enter the room, and a
    control panel for the missile system will come out of the floor.  Press the
    left side of it to make the missile platforms come out of the ground.  You
    won't be able to upgrade your ship quite yet, but you'll need the platforms up
    to reach the bay door controls.
    
    Use the hand panel next to the elevator shaft near the room's entrance to
    activate the elevator, then step into the hologram to go up a level.  Blast the
    grate off of the right ventilation duct, then morph into a ball and head in
    there.
    
    Stand up and scan the energy cell on the wall for a log entry, then interact
    with it to take it (which will drop the energy shield guarding the orange door
    down below).  Blast the cover off of the left ventilation duct and get inside.
    Jump down and scan the orange door for a log entry, then take the elevator back
    up to get on top of the missile upgrade platforms.
    
    When you're on top of the central part, use your grapple lasso to yank the
    stuck platform out of the wall, then jump over to it.  Continue working your
    way from platform to platform until you reach the spot with the morph ball
    tunnel that leads to the bay door controls.  Interact with them to open the bay
    doors, then head back out the morph ball tunnel and use the missile upgrade
    controls to lower the missile platforms back into the ground.  Activate your
    command visor and summon your ship to the dock, then use the panel to activate
    the missile upgrade system.
    
    OBJECTIVE COMPLETE:  Travel to the Federation Landing Site
    
    Okay, so now that you've got some fancy missiles on your ship, you should be

    again and drop some more bombs under it.  It should go down, and you can run
    behind it and use your grapple lasso on the back.  This will cause it to stand

    Destroy the Jolly Roger Drones on your way to the door on the right side of the

    want, but you're going to be able to save at your ship soon anyway).

    Jousting Field
    --------------
    
    Ignore the pirates here and head for the other door.  You can scan a crashed
    ship in the middle of the field if you'd like.  Apparently it was brought down
    when you destroyed the generator.

    LOG:  Mogenar
    
     1 Red Credit:  Scan for Mogenar
    
    1 Gold Credit:  Defeat Mogenar
    
    Jump down and approach the golem, then scan it as soon as it starts moving for
    a log entry.  There're four red spheres on the golem - three on the front and
    one on the back.  You'll have to hit these spheres while they're exposed until
    they shatter, revealing the weak spots underneath.  Unfortunate, the white weak
    spots are only weak against your hyper beam, so you're going to have to enter
    hyper mode to destroy each one of them.
    
    To make matters worse, the golem will constantly try to pull more red spheres
    from the core to replace the damaged ones.  Every time you see him stop and try
    to pull red spheres from the walls, immediately start shooting the new spheres
    before they reach his body.
    
    Each time you completely destroy one of the four sphere holes (they'll shine
    yellow when they're broken), the golem will absorb phazon into his feet and
    start doing running attacks.  If you scan his feet, you'll discover that you
    need to bomb them to remove the phazon.  Enter morph ball mode and drop three
    bombs as close to each foot as you can to make him start attacking normally
    again.
    
    With all four sphere holes destroyed, the fight will be over, and you'll be
    able to grab the Hyper Ball upgrade.  Do so, then enter morph ball mode and
    hold down the A button to destroy the little orb things that appear on the
    ground.  Samus will more or less take care of the rest, just watch your screen
    for more button prompts.

    There're tons of things to scan here, so start looking for each one.  When you
    find the Databot near the SkyTown Blue Door, shoot it once to activate a

    The phazon vines around the Chozo statue will prevent it from functioning, so
    you'll have to activate your PED and use your Hyper Ball while in the statue's
    hands (hold down the A button while in morph ball mode).  With the vines
    destroyed, the statue will lower, allowing you to access the grappling points.

    Scan the ground in front of you for a log entry, then enter morph ball mode and
    roll into the hologram.  When you reach the other side, roll into the morph
    ball tunnel against the wall on the right and perform a double bomb jump while
    underneath the missile expansion to grab it.  Roll through the other part of
    the morph ball tunnel to reach another zipline.  Blast the locks and the little

    MISSILE:  When you drop below the lasers in morph ball mode, roll back towards

    Scan the Steamlord if you missed him earlier, then proceed to the laser defense
    grid thing.  Activate your morph ball and roll into the dip below the lasers,
    but immediately roll backwards instead of forwards.  There's a missile
    expansion in a small crevice there.  Once you've grabbed it, roll under the

    Interact with the control panel to activate the elevator, then step on the

    ball tunnel on the other side instead.  Move your way through the tunnel,
    dodging pistons and dropping bombs to destroy obstructions.  When you come out
    the other side, try to go through the next door to initiate a fight.
    
    Scan a Steambot for a log entry, then destroy them as fast as you can.  The
    Steamlord will try to repair them, so keep your eyes open for him - you can
    damage him while he's repairing a fallen Steambot (make sure you scan him too,
    if you missed him earlier).  Eventually the Steamlord will be destroyed, and
    he'll drop an energy tank for you.

    1 Friend Voucher:  Instead of fighting the Steamlord and Steambots, simply run
                       past them and pull away the third gate section.
    
    Rip off the weak grating with your grapple lasso, then scan one of the enemies
    that appear for a log entry.  Destroy them by ripping their engines off with
    your grapple lasso, then walk onto the first part of the bridge.  The first
    pillar you come to is hollow - walk around to the other side of it, activate
    your morph ball, and jump in there to grab a missile expansion.
    
    Get out of there and use your grapple lasso to break the next section of gate,
    then jump onto the lower section of the bridge.  Run forward, and a Steamlord
    and some Steambots will try to attack you.  Instead of fighting them, simply
    run to the other side and use your grapple lasso on the third section of gate,
    making the bridge fall (you'll get a Friend Voucher as a reward).  Head through
    the next door after fighting the next set of Dragoons.

    charged shot, and a chunk with a grab ledge will become available.  Jump up
    there, then get in the morph ball tunnel and activate the three bomb slots to
    remove the obstructions from the grappling points.  Exit the morph ball tunnel
    and jump back down to the next platform.
    
    Lure the Shriekbats off of their perch, then scan one as it comes at you (don't
    worry if you fail at this, you can scan these later in Main Docking Access).
    Use the grappling points to get to the other side once the Shriekbats are gone,
    then enter the morph ball tunnel, then enter the other one on the central
    pillar thing by the crane.  When you get to the top, eliminate the two

    If you played the previous two Prime games, you know how this works - charge
    your boost ball and build up momentum moving back and forth over the half-pipe,
    and you'll eventually be able to launch yourself high up into the air.  When
    you can, pull yourself over to the ledge and get out of morph ball mode.
    
    There's a panel here that you can interact with.  Your arm will be able to
    rotate three small rings of light, each of which has a small chunk of yellow
    line (...that's the best I can describe it) stuck to it.  To unlock the gate,
    you'll have to rotate your Wiimote until the chunk of yellow line is lined up
    with the circular pattern on the control panel (it should be filling a gap in
    the line).  When you have a piece of it lined up, press A.  Line all three
    pieces up, and the gate will open.  Jump on the elevator hologram and exit this
    room.

    LOG:  Ghor
    
    MISSILE:  Use the Plasma Beam to melt the metal across from the door to Main
              Docking Access, then enter morph ball mode and hop into the hole.
    
     1 Red Credit:  Scan for Ghor
    
    1 Gold Credit:  Ghor Defeated
    
    Follow the path to the right until you get to the large open area.  Scan Ghor
    as soon as the battle starts, then start side-stepping to get clear shots at
    the weak spot on this back.  It doesn't take much to damage it, which will stun
    him for a second.  While he's stunned, you'll be able to damage him by hitting
    the front of his head until he puts his shield back up.  Repeat this process
    until his attacks change to the spinning mode, at which point you'll be able to
    scan him again and discover his new weak spot.
    
    If you played Metroid Prime 2, this form of Ghor will look a little familiar.
    The little glowing ball thing between his legs is his weak spot - wait until
    you have a clear path, then charge your boost ball and ram into it.  This will
    stun him again, so take advantage of it and blast his head as much as you can.
    Repeat the process as necessary.
    
    When he's very low on health, he'll enter another attack stage that's really
    not all that big of a deal.  If you still have plenty of energy, just enter
    hyper mode and blast the crap out of him until he's destroyed.  If not, regular
    shots will still work just as well (it'll just take you a few seconds longer).
    
    OBJECTIVE COMPLETE:  Hunt Down Ghor
    
    Grab the Plasma Beam upgrade that Ghor drops, the save in your ship if you'd
    like.  Use the Plasma Beam to melt the metal that's blocking the exit to the
    dock, then follow the path back up to the door.  Instead of going through it,
    melt the weak metal across from it and grab the missile expansion.  Go through
    the door once you're done.
    
    This objective sometimes gets announced a tad late (I was literally walking
    through the door to the Aurora Chamber when it was added to my log book), but
    it's what you should be doing next:

                   the expansion at the other end of the room.
    
    Scan the orange door directly in front of you for a log entry, then head
    through it.  You'll be told that the item you need to get to the skytram might
    not be on Elysia...  of course.  Head back through the door and move across the
    walkway with the Sky Puffers.  Jump up to the moving platform and enter the
    morph ball tunnel there.
    
    When you come out the other side, drop down to the lower area and interact with
    the control panel.  You've seen one like this before - line up the three parts
    of the rings and press A each time.  The wall will move out of the way, giving
    you a small shortcut to get back to the other side of this room.  Turn to the
    right and use your Plasma Beam to melt the metal in the corner, then enter the
    morph ball tunnel behind it to find a Ship Missile Expansion on the other side
    of the room.  Return to the door near the control panel when you've got it.

    whenever necessary.  When you reach the cracked section of pipe, drop a bomb to
    break it, then roll back down to the closest air jet thing.  Drop a bomb on it,
    and you'll be launched to another section of pipe.  Roll out the far end of it,

    appear on the floor, so use it to rotate the gong to the opposite side of the

    Screw attack works a lot like your Space Jump Boots - just press the B button
    after you've jumped two times, and Samus will enter Screw Attack mode.  If you

    Rather than going down the hallway to the right, enter the morph ball tunnel
    between the two closest containment cases.  Use a bomb on the weak spot in the
    floor that you find, then continue through the hallways until you find a weak
    spot in a wall that you can bomb.  Follow that tunnel, then bomb your way out
    of it.  Continue walking through the hallway until you find a room with a
    containment unit holding an item.
    
    Scan the small enemies in here for a log entry, then use your grapple lasso on
    the panel to the left to reveal an energy cell.  Interact with it to take it,
    and the shield on the containment unit will drop.  Shatter the glass on it with
    a charged shot, then take the Seeker Missile upgrade.  Use it by holding down
    on the control pad (the same thing you'd use to fire a standard missile) and
    then moving your Wiimote around to different targets while still holding down
    on the button.  When you release it, multiple missiles will fire.  Use that to
    open the door that's blocking your exit.
    
    Now that the energy cell has been removed, the metroids have escaped their
    containment units.  Work your way out of this area towards the nearest seeker
    missile door, and scan one of the Phazon Metroids you encounter along the way.
    To kill them, freeze them with an ice missile, then shatter them with your
    Plasma Beam.  If one manages to grab you, activate your morph ball and drop
    some bombs to get free.
    
    Make your way back through the hallways after you've deactivated the next
    seeker missile gate and head for the blue door that leads to the elevator room.

    say yes both times unless you genuinely need to have something repeated.

    Space Pirates will try to destroy the spire before you can drop the Theronian
    Bomb on the Leviathan Shield.  If you missed the scans earlier, make sure you
    take this chance to scan both types of Space Pirate ships (Skiffs and ATCs),
    then start pounding on the fronts of them until they blow up.  Other pirate
    units will land on the spire and try to distract you, so be ready to deal with
    them as well.  Keep your eyes peeled, though - one of the pirates is an Armored
    Shield Trooper, which you'll need to scan for a log entry.
    
    Once you destroy three assault skiffs, the spire will reach the Leviathan, and
    any remaining pirate units will jump off of it.  Activate the control panel
    that Samus approaches, then press the three small green rings to start the
    shutdown sequence.
    
    Jump in the back of the escape pop and use the panel inside of it.  Broken, eh?
    Figures.  Jump back out and roll through the morph ball tunnel that opened up.

    Roll out of the tunnel, then use your Plasma Beam to melt the metal chunks that
    are blocking the path.  Take a left and interact with the panel on the wall
    there.  It's damaged, so you'll have to weld it quickly.  Continue around the
    back of the room when you're done and use your grapple lasso to pull away the
    weak grate, then weld the broken behind it.  Finally, use your grapple lasso to
    remove a cover from a third broken control panel on the opposite side of the
    room from the first one.  When all three are repaired, get back in the morph
    ball tunnel and return to the main Spire area.

    Scan Helios as soon as the battle starts for a log entry, then begin firing at
    the center of his sphere as he rolls around the room.  Hit him enough, and he
    will enter a different attack form with five red spheres around him.  Target
    these with your seeker missiles to destroy them, then hit him until he falls to
    the floor.  While he's down here, enter hyper mode and blast the crap out of
    him.
    
    Repeat the process, making sure you grab any health and missiles that appear
    during the fight.  When he summons his swarmbots to generate energy blasts at
    you, destroy them one at a time by shooting the blue energy collections before
    they can fire (just like you'd do for normal swarmbots).  Eventually he'll
    enter a stage where he's got arms and legs.  Target the red joints on his legs
    to make him fall over, then blast him while he's down until his weak spot is
    exposed again.  He might also enter a mode where he can only be hurt from the
    ground, so roll around and drop bombs in his path until you can stun him again.
    Repeat the process as many times as necessary until you destroy it.
    
    Grab the Hyper Missile upgrade, then use them to destroy the spike things that
    appear on the walls around the room.  The game will pretty much take care of
    the rest from there.

    |               there is a cargo supply route that connects directly to the   |
    |               Seed.  The gate in the Command courtyard appears to be its    |

     -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    The rain in this area will hurt you, so make sure you keep your eyes on the
    ground to see where it isn't raining.  Head for the right side of the room
    towards the energy shield and find the big fans.  Face them, then look up to
    the right to find a green grab ledge.  Jump up to it, then get in the morph
    ball tunnel to the right of it.
    
    Follow the tunnel until you have a split.  Take the left side to find a missile
    expansion, then return to the split and take the right side to get above the
    fans.  Interact with the energy cell on the wall to take it.  Go through the
    morph ball tunnel that opens up, and you'll drop right in front of the fans.
    Roll through the morph ball tunnel that they were guarding to continue.

    More hyper mode Crawltanks will try to slow you down in here, so blast the crap
    out of them with hyper mode or missiles.  Follow the path all the way to the
    end, where you'll find a small hatch covering a morph ball tunnel (the one on
    the right is useless to you for now).  Use the grapple lasso to flip the hatch,
    then roll through the tunnel.

    Roll to the right first and find your way over to the other side of the room to
    grab a missile expansion, then find your way back to where you entered the room
    and roll to the left this time.  Get on the small elevator and use the new
    tunnel to leave the room.

    nearby control panel.  Enter the code displayed on the panel by pressing the
    little icon things around the outside, and the rail for the conveyor will be
    moved slightly.  Shoot one of the Phazon containers when it's above the hatch,
    and it'll knock it open when it falls off of the conveyor.  Roll through the
    morph ball tunnel behind it.

              ledge you find, then jump up to a different green grab ledge.
    
    2 Red Credits:  Scans for Urtragian Shriekbat and Phazon Grub
    
    Move forward until you hear the sound of shriekbats, then be ready to back up
    and scan one of them as it attacks you for a log entry.  Continue down the
    hallway and take a left.  As you approach one of the blue Phazon vents on the
    floor, some small enemies will come out of it.  Scan one of them for a log
    entry, then destroy them and jump up to the nearby ledge.
    
    Follow these ledges until you see a green grab ledge, but don't jump up to it
    yet.  Instead, look slightly to the right to see another ledge.  Jump over to 
    it (using Screw Attack for a slight boost right before the platform), then turn
    to the right to find another green grab ledge.  Jump up to it and grab the
    missile expansion, then return to the other ledge and use the green grab ledge
    to get in the morph ball tunnel.

                  near the top, shortly after the two moving platforms.
    
    Work your way to the right, using your bombs to destroy the enemies in your way
    whenever necessary.  Hop in the first bomb slot you find and activate it, then
    jump up to the new path that's opened.  Use the two moving platforms to get
    higher up, then move to the right and continue heading upwards.  You'll see an
    energy tank at the top of the path, so do a double bomb jump to get yourself up
    there.

    make short work of the two Commando Pirates that attack you (make sure you scan
    one of them for a log entry), then find where the access door used to be and
    use it to reach the orange door.

    If you flip on your X-Ray Visor, you'll notice some infrared beams that're
    blocking the hallway.  If you walk through them, two Commando Pirates will
    attack.  Roll under them in morph ball to prevent that.
    
    In the middle of the room, there's one of those monitor things that you can
    scan for a Lore entry.  After you've scanned it, roll under the second set of
    infrared beams and head out the door.

    Yeah, saw that one a mile away.  Scan her for a log entry, then start blasting
    her as she moves around the room until she terms into her Berserker form.
    Shoot the energy balls it throws, just like you would for a normal Berserker,
    then blast the hell out of her head after you've bounced four energy balls back
    at her (use hyper mode to cause some major damage).
    
    She'll continue turning into a few different enemies, but none of them are
    really much of a threat.  If she turns into an Aerotrooper, just blast her with
    missiles.  If she turns into Swarmbats, just blast her with your Plasma Beam.
    If she turns into Rundas, hit her until you stun her, then rip the armor off
    with your grapple lasso and pound her in hyper mode.  If she turns into Ghor,
    ram the orb between her legs with your boost ball.  If she turns into you, just
    hammer her with your Plasma Beam.
    
    In her final form, she'll sometimes turn invisible.  If so, you'll have to use
    your X-Ray Visor to see where she is.  It can be hard to hit her in this mode,
    but none of her attacks are really all that dangerous.  Finish her off and grab
    the Grapple Voltage item she drops.

    the track will eventually break, dropping you to some platforms below.  This
    might be confusing to you at first because it looks just like the platform on
    the other side, but check your map to get your bearings if necessary.  The

    Use your seeker missiles to open the cover on the morph ball hole, then roll
    through it.  Stand up when you reach the bottom, then find the Databot hovering
    in the area for a log entry.  Look around for a nearby ledge, then jump up to
    it and look down towards the gear on the floor.  Use your grapple lasso to whip
    it into the air, then immediately charge a partial charged shot and hit the
    gear with it to knock it into place (pretty ridiculous, but that's how it
    works).  Grab the Spider Ball item.
    
    OBJECTIVE COMPLETE:  Investigate Artifacts on SkyTown
    
    Drop all the way down the hole where the statue used to be, then scan down at
    an angle towards the morph ball hole to get the Spider Ball Track log entry (or
    just wait and get it somewhere else).  Enter the tunnel and hold down your Z
    button to stick to the tracks, then work your way towards the other side.  Make
    sure you don't accidentally touch one of the flames, or you'll fall off of the
    pod and have to start over.
    
    When you finally make it back inside, grab onto the track next to the one you
    came off of to go back outside.  Eventually, you'll run out of track, so charge
    your boost ball and let go of it to jump over to the track on the other side.
    Continue moving your way over until you run out of track, and you should find a
    missile expansion.  Return to the inside of the pod when you've got it.

    ball to climb the huge track over the ziplines.  You'll have to boost yourself
    over some gaps as well as jump through some non-magnetic spots, but it's not
    all that hard.  When you reach the center, make sure you double bomb jump up to
    the ring thing and grab the energy tank there.  Drop back down and complete the
    second half of the series of tracks to get back to the platform on the other
    side.  Screw Attack over to the door leading to the Junction.

    1 Gold Credit:  Metroid Hatcher Defeated
    
    The first step when fighting a Metroid Hatcher is to attack the tentacles.  You
    can hit them with regular shots or seeker missiles, but either way, you can't
    actually damage it until all of the tentacles are retracted.  When they're
    retracted, keep an eye out for when the rest of it spins around, exposing its
    weakspot (which is a glowing mouth thing...  or at least that's what it looks
    like to me).  Hit it enough times, and it'll be stunned, prompting grapple
    lasso icons to show up on the tentacles.  Grab one and yank on it to damage it.
    
    Repeat the process four times to get rid of all the tentacles, then enter the
    morph ball tunnel near the entrance when the Metroid Hatcher is defeated.
    Follow it until you can stand up, then grab the energy cell from the wall and
    head back through the tunnel towards the door.

    Walk into the main part of this room, then turn around and look up to spot some
    new enemies.  Scan the flying ones as well as the one on the ground to get two
    log entries, then find the sonic panel on the wall to get a log entry.  The
    three golems in the area (two down low and one up top) all need to have
    protective covers removed from their bomb slots - one will require some Plasma
    shots, one will require an ice missile, and the other will require some voltage
    from your grapple lasso.
    
    Activate the golem closest to the spider ball track generator.  Use the tracks
    to reach a missile expansion high up in the room (you'll have to avoid the
    electricity, and you'll have to make good use of bombs, boost ball, and falling
    when appropriate).  When you have the missiles, drop from the ceiling.  You
    should land right in front of the ice golem.  Activate it to freeze the fuel
    gel fountains, then carefully Screw Attack your way to the ice platform on the
    left and go through the blue door.

    Enter the morph ball tunnel and head all the way to the first crystalized fuel
    gel deposit all the way to the right.  Bombing it will destroy some of the
    stuff that's blocking your path, so go ahead and drop down once you've bombed
    it.  Work your way to the left, then head up when you reach the plant things
    that you have to hop onto.  Bombing the next section of crystalized fuel gel
    will destroy some of the floor farther to the left, so hop out of this part of
    the maze and head over there.
    
    Drop down, then bomb another section of crystalized fuel gel and head down.
    To the left, you'll see a small ledge with an enemy on it.  Hop up there, bomb
    the enemy, and then double bomb jump up to grab the missile expansion.  Fall
    back down and bomb the next section of crystalized fuel gel, then work your way
    to the right from here until you're out of the morph ball area.
    
    Turn around when you stand up and use the sonic panel to reveal a Lore entry,
    then head through the door.

    MISSILE:  Use your ice missiles to freeze the fuel gel spouts, then use them as
              ledges to work your way to the spot behind where the golem head was.
    
    MISSILE:  There's a small path in the fuel gel underneath the middle spout.
              You'll get burned a little, but wade your way through it to grab the
              expansion from the other side.
    
    Activate your Command Visor and look at the top of the golem head to find a
    spot for you to lock onto it.  Have your ship pick it up, then use your ice
    missiles to freeze the fuel gel spouts as you climb your way up to the ledge
    behind where the golem head was to find a missile expansion.
    
    Drop down and look at the middle fuel gel spout.  Close to the bottom, you
    should be able to see a small path.  Freeze the spout, then drop down into the
    fuel gel and work your way through the path quickly to grab the expansion.

    MISSILE:  Use the spinners to rotate the central pillar thing until you have a
              tunnel going from the bottom to the upper-right.
    
    Walk out in to the main area and find the spider ball track on the wall.
    Follow it until you drop down to the floor again, then find the next morph ball
    tunnel entrance nearby and get in it.  Use the spinner on the right to rotate
    the top section of the central pillar thing until two pieces of the morph ball
    tunnel go by.  The result should be a continuous morph ball tunnel from the
    bottom of the pillar to the upper-right of it.  Exit the spinner and get in the
    tunnel on the left, then move up it until you reach the missile expansion at
    the top.  Drop back down the tunnel when you're done.
    
    Get in the left spinner and rotate the bottom section of the tower until the
    next piece of spider ball track is showing, then get in the right spinner and
    rotate the upper part of the pillar until you have a complete spider ball track
    running from the bottom to the upper-left.  Exit the spinner and use the track
    to go upwards.  When you exit the tunnel, use the control panel to grab the
    Hazard Shield upgrade.
    
    OBJECTIVE COMPLETE:  Find the Acid Shield Unit
    
    Scan one of the Assault Aerotroopers for a log entry, then blast them and jump
    down to the floor to use the control panel that appears.  Commandos will attack
    as soon as you use it, so enter hyper mode and blast them quickly.  Jump up the
    platforms around the outside of the room to find your way back up to the doors,
    then take the one on the right to get to the Airshaft.

    MISSILE:  Use the morph ball tunnel to reach a spinner, then rotate the floor
              until you can reach the expansion.
    
    Turn to the left and use a bomb on the cover plate that's blocking the morph
    ball tunnel, then get inside.  Roll to the spinner, then rotate the floor so
    you can reach the missile expansion.  Go back through the floor to exit the
    tunnel, then head for the green grab ledge and look to the left for a wall with
    Phazon growths on it.  Enter hyper mode and destroy them with missiles, then
    exit hyper mode and scan the Lore entry on the wall near the door before going
    through it.

    ENERGY TANK:  Use the third spinner to reach the ceiling after beating the
                  Metroid Hatcher, then use the gap in the track to get to the
                  spider ball track on the ceiling.  Use your boost ability to jump
                  from track to track until you reach the energy tank.
    
    1 Gold Credit:  Metroid Hatcher Defeated
    
    Use the spinner at the back of the room to raise the containment thing, then
    activate the bomb slot when you get tossed to the ceiling.  Move to the next
    bomb slot and do the same thing, then take on the Metroid Hatcher.  If you've
    been following my guide up to this point, you've already seen one of these
    things.  If not, here's a refresher:
    
    You have to hit the four tentacles on the bottom to make them retract.  Once
    all four are retracted, the rest of the Hatcher will move around the room in a
    stunned state, and if you hit it in the mouth during this time, you'll be able
    to stun it even more, allowing you to use your grapple lasso to rip a tentacle
    off.  Ripping the tentacles off one by one is the only way to hurt the Hatcher.
    Seeker Missiles work wonderfully for hitting the tentacles, but standard Plasma
    shots will be all you need to stun the rest of it once the tentacles are
    retracted.
    
    With the Metroid Hatcher defeated, get in the third spinner and use the
    containment thing to reach the ceiling.  Let the game take control for a while,
    and when you stop rolling, look up nearby to find a gap in the pipe thing with
    some spider ball track above it.  Hop up to it and use the spider ball tracks
    to move through the area.  You'll have to make use of your boost ability to
    jump across tracks, but eventually you'll wind up at the energy tank in the
    ceiling area.
    
    Roll out the end of the track and get back in the spinner to launch yourself to
    the ceiling again.  This time, continue moving to the right instead of getting
    on the spider ball track.  Activate the bomb slot when you reach it, then use
    the wall jump walls to get up to the door.

    Use the bomb slot to rotate the gate, then get in the elevator and drop down to
    the lowest part of the area.  Deal with the turret, then use your grapple
    voltage to open the lift door to the left.  When you get inside, it'll drop
    down a little.  Get back out of it and shoot the cable above it with a charged
    shot to make it fall, then jump to the other side of the shaft to grab the

    stand up and follow the walkway all the way around the upper part of the room

    FRIEND VOUCHER:  20 Commandos Defeated
    
    Work your way around to the back side of the room (scan the green door for a
    log entry if you failed to do so earlier in the game) until you find the hand
    scanner, then use it to activate the elevator.  When you ride the elevator down
    to the lower area, a fight will start.
    
    Commandos will attack you in groups of three while the phazon collector
    alternates between its cycles.  When it kicks in, everything will be pulled
    towards the center of the room, so you'll want to make sure you stay on the
    outside of the room (be prepared to pull away from the center when it starts to
    suck you in).
    
    The Commandos will shred you quickly, so you'll want to enter hyper mode to
    wipe them out fast.  The tricky part is that you need to leave one of them
    alive until the collector activates, then finish him off so he gets sucked in.
    When a Commando gets sucked into the beam, look up and destroy one of the
    targets at the top of the room.  You'll have to repeat this process four times
    to destroy the collector and make the Nova Beam item drop down (if you stay in
    the room long enough, you'll be able to slaughter enough Commandos to earn a
    Friend Voucher).
    
    Activate your X-Ray Visor and look at the Phazite wall that's blocking the
    elevator.  You should see two small yellow circles, so hit each one of them
    with a shot from your Nova Beam.  that should cause a control panel to activate
    on the door, so walk up to it with your X-Ray Visor still activated and use it
    to make the Phazite slab go away.
    
    Ride the elevator up, then use your X-Ray Visor and Nova Beam to shoot the
    small yellow circle through the slab of Phazite up here.  Once you've activated
    the terminal, use your X-Ray Visor to interact with it and move the Phazite.
    Go through the door on the other side.

    Drill Shaft 2
    -------------
    
    Use your X-Ray Visor to look inside the jammed drill.  You should see a little
    glowing orb thing between the two moving shafts - hit it repeatedly until it
    frees the drill, then scan the leaches for a log entry if you failed to do so
    earlier in the game.  Jump down in the hole and go through the next door when
    you're ready.

    a small opening to appear in the force field, which will let you get back up

    back the way you came.

    Deal with the Crawlmines, then use your X-Ray Visor to look at the slab of
    Phazite to the right.  See the four small yellow circles?  Hit each one of them
    with a shot from your Nova Beam, and the wall will raise.  Grab the missile
    expansion from inside, then scan the pirate data thing on the wall for a Lore
    entry.  Walk around to the other blue door and leave when you're ready.

    Drop back down and put an energy cell in each station to activate the elevator
    higher in the room.
    
    Doing so will bring a Metroid Hatcher into the room.  You can fight this one
    the same way you fought the last two if you'd like, or you can make things very
    easy and just blast it a ton of times with the Nova Beam.  Even though it
    doesn't look like it hurts it, it does, and it'll explode fairly quickly if you
    hit it in the head enough.

    Berserker (by reflecting the big purple things it fires at you a few times,
    then shooting its head when it's damaged).
    
    When the Berserker is killed, more pirates will arrive.  This time, they'll be
    able to go invisible, but it really doesn't matter - you should still be able
    to slaughter them with hyper mode fairly quickly.  Once they're dead, the demo
    guys will detonate the giant locks on the security door.

    1 Gold Credit:  Omega Ridley Defeated
    
    Scan Omega Ridley as soon as the battle starts for a log entry, then start
    firing at his mouth.  Hit him enough, and he'll be stunned - run up to him and
    use your grapple lasso to pull his armor away, then enter hyper mode and blast
    the weak spot.  Repeat as necessary.
    
    He'll eventually materialize a different kind of armor, at which point your
    strategy will have to change slightly.  When you stun him now, you'll have to
    switch to your X-Ray Visor and hit the two weakspots on the right and left of
    his new armor until both parts have been shattered, and then you'll be able to
    damage his weak spot just like before.
    
    He'll fly around outside for a while at some point, but he's not much of a
    threat.  Wait until he lands inside again, then stun him one more time and
    finish him off.  Grab the pointless item he drops, then use it on the two
    things that drop from the ceiling just like you'd use your regular grapple
    voltage.  With enough Phazon energy sent to the tentacle things, they'll
    explode, giving you access to the seed.  Release your massive Phazon blast to
    destroy it.
    
    Samus will get back to her ship on her own, at which point you'll be given your
    next objective:

    Scan one of the small enemies on the walls for a log entry then head through to
    the other side of the room.  Some Phazon Hoppers will attack, so blast them
    quickly.  Use your hyper grapple to dump energy into the bio mass thing that's
    blocking your path, then fall down the shaft and go through the door.

    Scan some of the crystals on the wall for a log entry, then head through this

    the next door.

    Enter the morph ball tunnel and roll through it while holding down your A
    button to slaughter the little red things.  Destroying them all will destroy
    the larger growth things that're blocking your path.  When you reach the bottom
    area where you can stand up, do so, then immediately scan the nearby enemy for
    a log entry.  These Phazon Puffers will absorb the Phazon from you if you stand
    in front of them, so let one drain you until right before it fires, then
    destroy it.  Head through the door when you're ready.

    Deal with the Metroids and Jelsacs as you work your way through this room.

    1 Red Credit:  Scan for Tangle Weed
    
    Roll through the hole, then scan some of the weed around the outside of the
    room for a log entry.  Enter morph ball mode and work your way around the room
    while holding your A button down to destroy the red node things, which will
    eventually destroy the larger thing in the middle of the room.  You'll have to
    drop through the hole that appears in the middle, then repeat the process a few
    times.  Note that you can deplete your Phazon meter by staying on the blue
    section near a hole.
    
    When you drop down the final hole, keep holding your A button to destroy the
    enemy thing that tries to grab you at the bottom, then go through the door.
    
    --------------
    Metroid Cavern
    --------------
    
    Drop down to the floor and run forward until you see the weird door.  Shoot
    each of the little antena things around the outside of it as they appear, then
    shoot the main part of the door when the antena things start wiggling and going
    crazy.  Head through the hole that formed, then blast the hoppers and collect
    the anti-Phazon units from them until the wall explodes.  Deal with the other
    enemies, then head through the door.

    Hatcher Shaft

    Jump down the shaft, then hammer away at the mouth of the bizarre thing that
    grabs ahold of you.  Destroy the crystals at the bottom of the shaft to grab
    any anti-Phazon units they might have, then go through the door.

    then find the tiny Leviathan Infant swimming inside it and scan it for a log
    entry.  Destroy it once you've got it, then absorb as much anti-Phazon as you
    can before jumping down the hole.

     2 Red Credits:  Scans for Dark Samus and Aurora Unit 313
    
    2 Gold Credits:  Dark Samus Repusled and Aurora Unit 313 Defeated
    
    Scan Dark Samus right off the bat for a log entry, then start hammering her
    with regular shots.  This battle really isn't hard at all, but make sure you
    blast her out of the sky as quickly as you can when she starts absorbing Phazon
    from the area (or she'll heal her damage).
    
    When she summons an echo of herself, turn on your X-Ray Visor and focus on the
    one that's glowing red.  You can destroy the echo if you want, but they're not
    much of a threat to be honest.  You should be able to finish the real Dark
    Samus off in no time anyway.
    
    Scan the Aurora Unit when it appears for another log entry, then keep your eyes
    peeled for the tentacle things that pop out of the side of it.  If you're fast
    enough to tag them, you'll get a chance to stun the head by hitting the yellow
    ports.  Once it's stunned, it'll fall to the ground for a few seconds.  Run up
    to it and grapple the doors off of the top, then pound the hell out of the weak
    spot until the doors close.
    
    Repeat that same process until you sever the head from the ground.  When it's
    flying around, Aurora Unit 313 is much easier to hit.  It's got a giant weak
    spot on the back, so all you have to do is get behind it and pound on it until
    it's destroyed.

     -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    In the following sections, I've arranged all of the expansion items that you
    can collect in the game by type.  I've arranged them in the order that you
    would pick them up if you were following my guide all the way through the game,
    so some of them might be in a different order than what you would expect if
    you're just checking this as a quick reference.
    
    Farther down in this guide, you'll find "Quick Expansion Lists" that are
    basically just lists that give you the name of a room, the area it's in, and
    what type of expansion(s) you can find there.
    
     -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    |                                                                             |
    |                             2.01)  Energy Tanks                             |
    |                                                                             |
     -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    In addition to your original 99 units of energy, you can find 14 energy tanks
    in the game.
    
    ----------------------------------
    G.F.S. Olympus - Ventilation Shaft
    ----------------------------------
    
    Impossible to miss, you'll get this energy tank on your way through the room.
    
    ------------------------
    Norion - Substation East
    ------------------------
    
    You'll see this energy tank sitting in a little tunnel area that goes around
    the outside of the room.  You'll need to enter this tunnel to avoid the
    damaging floor anyway, so this energy tank is pretty hard to miss.
    
    --------------------
    Bryyo - Reliquary II
    --------------------
    
    Reliquary II is a small room attached to the Gateway.  The energy tank is just
    sitting in the middle of the room, so you won't need to do much to get it.
    
    ---------------------
    Bryyo - Ruined Shrine
    ---------------------
    
    It's sitting in a fragment of a golem at the bottom of the shaft.  Use a bomb
    on the weak spot and the energy tank will be yours for the taking.
    
    -------------
    Brryo - Vault
    -------------
    
    You'll have to destroy the fuel gel deposits on the walls in the Overgrown
    Ruins to find the door to this room, but once you do, the energy tank is just
    sitting there waiting for you to take it.
    
    -----------------------------------
    SkyTown, Elysia - Steambot Barracks
    -----------------------------------
    
    The Steamlord drops the energy tank when you destroy him.
    
    ---------------------------------
    SkyTown, Elysia - Arrival Station
    ---------------------------------
    
    Use the grab ledge in the outside area to reach an upper clearing that has an
    orb cannon.  Use the spinner to activate it, then launch yourself to the far
    platform that has the energy tank.
    
    ---------------------------------------------
    Eastern SkyTown, Elysia - Xenoresearch A Lift
    ---------------------------------------------
    
    Shatter the glass on the containment unit closest to the elevator on the upper
    level, and the energy tank is free for the taking.
    
    ----------------------------
    Pirate Research - Scrapworks
    ----------------------------
    
    You'll have to do a double bomb jump in the upper part of the morph ball system
    shortly after the two moving platforms.
    
    -----------------------------------------
    SkyTown, Elysia - Zipline Station Charlie
    -----------------------------------------
    
    When you're using Spider Ball to get back over the huge system of tracks, you
    will have a chance to double bomb jump up to an energy tank in the middle of
    the track system.
    
    ---------------------------
    Bryyo - Machineworks Bridge
    ---------------------------
    
    You can use the two moving wall jump slabs in the middle of the room to wall
    jump your way up to the energy tank near the ceiling.
    
    --------------------------------
    Pirate Research - Metroid Creche
    --------------------------------
    
    After defeating the Metroid Hatcher, use the spinner it came out of to launch
    yourself to the ceiling.  Inside the morph ball track, look for a gap in the
    top right below some spider ball tracks.  Follow this series of tracks using
    your spider ball and boost ball, and the energy tank will be yours.
    
    -----------------
    Bryyo Ice - Tower
    -----------------
    
    There's a spider ball track near the door, so go ahead and start working your
    way up it.  You'll have to use your boost ball, bombs, and quick release and
    re-attaches to make your way to the far side, where you'll find the energy
    tank.  Keep in mind that you can boost right through chunks of ice that're
    hanging from the ceiling, and you can also bomb some chunks on the ground.
    There's also a spot where you'll have to use a small half-pipe with your boost
    ball.
    
    ----------------------------------
    G.F.S. Valhalla - Munitions Locker
    ----------------------------------
    
    It's sitting in the middle of the room just waiting for you to take it.
    
     -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

     -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    You can find 50 Missile Expansions in the game, which will bring your total
    missile count up to 255 (the missile launcher you find in the G.F.S. Olympus
    gives you five, but I don't really consider it to be an expansion).
    
    ------------------
    Norion - Cargo Hub
    ------------------
    
    As soon as you enter this room, you should be able to hear the classic noise
    that indicates there's an item nearby.  The hinges on the cover to the panel on
    the right shortly after you enter the room are weak - use your grapple lasso to
    rip the cover right off of it.  Activate the controls behind it to gain access
    to a morph ball hole directly to your left.  Enter it, then work your way
    through the area with your bombs, morph ball jumps, and the gusts of air.
    
    ------------------------
    Bryyo - Grand Court Path
    ------------------------
    
    Blast the statue high on one of the walls, then jump up to the ledge where it
    used to be.  From here, you can jump to a path that leads to the expansion.
    
    ----------------------
    Bryyo - Hillside Vista
    ----------------------
    
    Head back up towards the ramp where you first entred the room and use your scan
    visor to find a cracked section of rock, then bomb it to enter a morph ball
    hole.  The little worm things here will collect on your morph ball until the
    start to move you towards the Korba up above, but you can still control which
    way you move with your analog stick.  As soon as enough Snatchers are on you
    and you start moving, hold left on the analog stick until you make it all the
    way up the far left path.
    
    ----------------------
    Bryyo Fire - Main Lift
    ----------------------
    
    Once you're inside the morph ball area, gather enough Snatchers on yourself to
    start floating upwards, then pull to the left right before you reach the Korba
    at the top.  Drop a bomb to free yourself from the Snatchers, then roll
    yourself through the morph ball tunnel until you reach the missile expansion.
    
    ---------------------
    Bryyo Fire - Gel Hall
    ---------------------
    
    Hit the dragon sculpture thing's mouth with charged shots, and it'll spit
    flames for a few seconds.  Time it so that the flames hit the vine to the left,
    and it'll break, dropping a platform with some missiles on it.
    
    ---------------------
    Bryyo Fire - Gel Hall
    ---------------------
    
    Use ice missiles on the fuel gel to create platforms, which you can use to
    work your way over to the missile expansion (which is down the hallway to the
    right when you enter this area from Save Station A).
    
    ------------------------------
    Bryyo Fire - Gel Refinery Site
    ------------------------------
    
    When entering the room from Gel Purification Site, use your Grapple Lasso to
    remove the loose pipes to the right.
    
    ------------------
    Bryyo - Crash Site
    ------------------
    
    Grapple your way to the Theseus, then enter the morph ball tunnel.  Work your
    way to the left, then head up as far as you can (you'll have to do a double
    bomb jump where you see the moving piston thing in the upper-left).  When you
    roll out on the top of the ship, you can grab a missile expansion above the
    grappling point.
    
    ------------------------
    Bryyo - Jungle Generator
    ------------------------
    
    When you use the sonic locking mechanism to uncover the Lore entry, you'll also
    find a missile expansion behind it.
    
    ----------------------------
    Bryyo - Generator Hall North
    ----------------------------
    
    Use the morph ball tunnel to the right of the controls on the upper area to
    grab the expansion.
    
    -----------------------------
    SkyTown, Elysia - Transit Hub
    -----------------------------
    
    You'll see this expansion in a little morph ball passage on your way through
    this area the first time.  You'll need to perform a double bomb jump to reach
    it.
    
    ---------------------------------
    SkyTown, Elysia - Barracks Access
    ---------------------------------
    
    When you're rolling under the lasers, look around for a small alcove at one end
    to find the expansion.
    
    --------------------------------
    SkyTown, Elysia - Skybridge Hera
    --------------------------------
    
    When you get on the bridge for the first time, the first pillar you see will be
    hollow - get inside it with your morph ball and hop to find the expansion.
    
    ----------------------------------
    SkyTown, Elysia - Main Docking Bay
    ----------------------------------
    
    Use the Plasma Beam to melt the metal across from the door to Main Docking
    Access, then enter morph ball mode and hop into the hole.
    
    --------------------------
    Bryyo Fire - Imperial Hall
    --------------------------
    
    When entering from Refinery Access, walk down the hallway, then stop when you
    reach the ledge that drops down to the main area.  Look to the right and find
    the morph ball tunnel, then roll through it and stand up on the other side.
    Use your grapple lasso to yank the two platforms off of the wall, then jump
    from them to the missile expansion.
    
    -----------------------------------
    Eastern SkyTown, Elysia - Gearworks
    -----------------------------------
    
    On your way back through this area, a pirate ship will destroy the gears, which
    will give you a clear path to the missile expansion.  You'll have to grab it as
    you Screw Attack your way over to the other door.  It's a long way to go, so
    you'll need to space out each jump as far as you can.  If you press the button
    too quickly each time, you'll fall short of the platform on the other end.
    
    ----------------------------------
    Eastern SkyTown, Elysia - Botanica
    ----------------------------------
    
    From the ledge near the ice missile door leading to the Broken Lift, Screw
    Attack over to a small indentation in the wall, then Screw Attack over to the
    missiles from there.
    
    -----------------------------------
    Eastern SkyTown, Elysia - Concourse
    -----------------------------------
    
    Roll through the morph ball tunnel to the left of the door when you first enter
    this room from Concourse Access B.
    
    ----------------------------------
    Pirate Command - Command Courtyard
    ----------------------------------
    
    Head for the right side of the room towards the energy shield and find the big
    fans.  Face them, then look up to the right to find a green grab ledge.  Jump
    up to it, then get in the morph ball tunnel to the right of it.  Follow the
    tunnel until you have a split.  Take the left side to find a missile expansion.
    
    --------------------------------
    Pirate Command - Command Station
    --------------------------------
    
    When entering from the tunnel in Flux Control, roll to the right and work your
    way over to the other side of the room to find the expansion.
    
    ----------------------------------
    Pirate Command - Security Air Lock
    ----------------------------------
    
    When you enter from Defense Access for the first time, the expansion will just
    be right there in plain sight.
    
    ----------------------------
    Pirate Research - Scrapvault
    ----------------------------
    
    When you get to the first green grab ledge, turn to the right to see another
    ledge in the distance.  Jump over there with your Screw Attack, then look
    around for another green grab ledge.  Use it to reach the expansion.
    
    ------------------------------------
    Pirate Research - Metroid Processing
    ------------------------------------
    
    After you remove the energy cell from the lower area, you can find a missile
    expansion in one of the shattered Metroid containment units.
    
    ----------------------------
    SkyTown, Elysia - Powerworks
    ----------------------------
    
    Once you have the Spider Ball item, drop all the way down the hole where the
    statue used to be, then scan down at an angle towards the morph ball hole to
    get the Spider Ball Track log entry (or just wait and get it somewhere else).
    Enter the tunnel and hold down your Z button to stick to the tracks, then work
    your way towards the other side.  Make sure you don't accidentally touch one of
    the flames, or you'll fall off of the pod and have to start over.
    
    When you finally make it back inside, grab onto the track next to the one you
    came off of to go back outside.  Eventually, you'll run out of track, so charge
    your boost ball and let go of it to jump over to the track on the other side.
    Continue moving your way over until you run out of track, and you should find a
    missile expansion.
    
    ----------------------------------
    SkyTown, Elysia - Construction Bay
    ----------------------------------
    
    From the upper area near the top of the morph ball lift, use Screw Attack to
    get over to the far side of the area and grab the expansion.
    
    -----------------------------------
    SkyTown, Elysia - Steambot Barracks
    -----------------------------------
    
    Work your way through the morph ball area just like you did the first time you
    were in this room, only this time, activate your Spider Ball when you go by the
    Spider Ball tracks.
    
    -----------------------------------------------
    Eastern SkyTown, Elysia - Concourse Ventilation
    -----------------------------------------------
    
    Use the Spider Ball tracks on the outside area of the lowest part of the room
    to reach the expansion.
    
    --------------------------
    Norion - Docking Hub Alpha
    --------------------------
    
    Walk behind your ship and look for the small walkway path thing with the
    grapple point above it, then either grapple or Screw Attack your way to the
    other side for a missile expansion.
    
    ------------------------
    Norion - Substation West
    ------------------------
    
    Roll along the small indentation in the wall with the moving parts to reach the
    expansion by the door to Conduit B.
    
    ----------------------------
    Norion - Maintenance Station
    ----------------------------
    
    Sitting in plain sight behind the ice missile door.
    
    ---------------------
    Norion - Cargo Dock A
    ---------------------
    
    Use the spider ball track to your right on the outside of the structure after
    entering this room from Conduit A.
    
    ---------------
    Bryyo - Gateway
    ---------------
    
    Make your way to the central pillar and look towards the door to the Gateway
    Hall.  Look to the left of there for a platform to Screw Attack to.  Hit the
    frozen spot on the wall to reveal a morph ball tunnel, then roll through it to
    grab a missile expansion.
    
    ---------------------
    Bryyo - Reliquary III
    ---------------------
    
    The expansion is just sitting in the room for you.  You can access this room
    via the grappling points on the ceiling in the Grand Court.
    
    ---------------------
    Bryyo - Falls of Fire
    ---------------------
    
    When you take the golem to the lower level, look above him for some wall jump
    walls.  Use them to jump up to the missile expansion.
    
    --------------------------
    Bryyo - Hall of the Golems
    --------------------------
    
    Activate the golem closest to the spider ball track generator.  Use the tracks
    to reach a missile expansion high up in the room (you'll have to avoid the
    electricity, and you'll have to make good use of bombs, boost ball, and falling
    when appropriate).
    
    --------------
    Bryyo - Burrow
    --------------
    
    Enter the morph ball tunnel and head all the way to the first crystalized fuel
    gel deposit all the way to the right.  Bombing it will destroy some of the
    stuff that's blocking your path, so go ahead and drop down once you've bombed
    it.  Work your way to the left, then head up when you reach the plant things
    that you have to hop onto.  Bombing the next section of crystalized fuel gel
    will destroy some of the floor farther to the left, so hop out of this part of
    the maze and head over there.
    
    Drop down, then bomb another section of crystalized fuel gel and head down.
    To the left, you'll see a small ledge with an enemy on it.  Hop up there, bomb
    the enemy, and then double bomb jump up to grab the missile expansion.
    
    --------------------
    Bryyo - Hidden Court
    --------------------
    
    When entering this room from the Burrow, you'll be able to Screw Attack your
    way to a halfpipe, which you can use to boost yourself up to the expansion.
    
    ---------------------
    Bryyo - Fuel Gel Pool
    ---------------------
    
    Activate your Command Visor and look at the top of the golem head to find a
    spot for you to lock onto it.  Have your ship pick it up, then use your ice
    missiles to freeze the fuel gel spouts as you climb your way up to the ledge
    behind where the golem head was, where you'll find the missile expansion.
    
    ---------------------
    Bryyo - Fuel Gel Pool
    ---------------------
    
    Drop down and look at the middle fuel gel spout.  Close to the bottom, you
    should be able to see a small path.  Freeze the spout, then drop down into the
    fuel gel and work your way through the path quickly to grab the expansion.
    
    Alternatively, if you don't feel like getting a little scorched, you can wait
    until you have the Hazard Shield.  Fuel Gel won't hurt you anymore once you
    have it.
    
    -------------------------
    Bryyo - Ancient Courtyard
    -------------------------
    
    Use the halfpipe in the middle of the room to reach the expansion.
    
    ---------------------------
    Pirate Research - Craneyard
    ---------------------------
    
    When you reach the area with two spinners, use the spinner on the right to
    rotate the top section of the central pillar thing until two pieces of the
    morph ball tunnel go by.  The result should be a continuous morph ball tunnel
    from the bottom of the pillar to the upper-right of it.  Exit the spinner and
    get in the tunnel on the left, then move up it until you reach the missile
    expansion at the top.
    
    --------------------------------
    Pirate Research - Creche Transit
    --------------------------------
    
    Enter the morph ball tunnel near the door to Metroid Processing, then use the
    spinner to rotate the floor and reach the expansion.
    
    -------------------------
    Pirate Command - Lift Hub
    -------------------------
    
    Use your grapple voltage to open the door to the second lift on the lower level
    of the area.  When you get inside, it'll drop down a little.  Get back out of
    it and shoot the cable above it with a charged shot to make it fall, then jump
    to the other side of the shaft to grab the missile expansion.
    
    ----------------------------
    Pirate Mines - Phazon Quarry
    ----------------------------
    
    Use the mining controls in the back of the area to cut a huge path in the wall,
    then use it to reach the expansion.
    
    --------------------------------
    Pirate Mines - Phazon Mine Entry
    --------------------------------
    
    Use your X-Ray Visor and Nova Beam to activate four small yellow circles behind
    the Phazite wall near the Main Cavern door.
    
    ----------------------------
    Bryyo Fire - Temple of Bryyo
    ----------------------------
    
    Use your X-Ray Visor and Nova Beam to activate the panel in the back of the
    temple, then roll through the fuel gel in the floor to find the expansion.
    
    ------------------------------
    G.F.S. Valhalla - MedLab Alpha
    ------------------------------
    
    After destroying the three sections of weak wall and ripping the panel off with
    your grapple lasso, roll into the hole in the floor to find the expansion.
    
    --------------------------------
    G.F.S. Valhalla - Auxiliary Lift
    --------------------------------
    
    Enter the morph ball track from the back of the elevator when it's on the upper
    floor, then head to the left after the first piston thing drops to the lower
    area.
    
    -------------------------------
    G.F.S. Valhalla - Weapons Cache
    -------------------------------
    
    Sitting in plain sight.
    
    -----------------------------
    Pirate Command - Flux Control
    -----------------------------
    
    Use your grapple lasso to flip the cover on the morph ball tunnels, then roll
    through the tunnel on the right.  Use your bombs and Spider Ball to climb the
    shaft to the missile expansion.
    
     -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

     -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    There are 8 additiona Ship Missile Expansions to find in the game, though your
    total will actually be 11 since the original issue you receive will give you 3
    right off the bat.
    
    ------------------------
    Bryyo - Auxiliary Dynamo
    ------------------------
    
    Use your grapple lasso to lower the piston thing on the wall in the middle of
    the room, then enter the morph ball track from the South Jungle Hall side to
    get the expansion.
    
    ----------------------------------
    SkyTown, Elysia - Security Station
    ----------------------------------
    
    Melt some metal with your Plasma Beam in the corner to the right of the control
    panel in the upper area.  Go through the morph ball tunnel behind the melted
    metal to grab the expansion at the other end of the room.
    
    -------------------------------
    Bryyo Ice - Hall of Remembrance
    -------------------------------
    
    When entering from the door at the top of the Tower, hit the blue spot on the
    Chozo statue's hand, then jump to it and look on top of the platform to the
    left.
    
    ----------------------------------------
    SkyTown, Elysia - Hoverplat Docking Site
    ----------------------------------------
    
    Screw Attack your way to the platforms in the middle of the area, then make use
    of your Spider Ball to climb the tracks and grab the expansion.
    
    ----------------------
    Bryyo - Colossus Vista
    ----------------------
    
    When you put the head back on the massive golem, it'll smash the gate that was
    blocking your access to the expansion.
    
    ------------------------------
    G.F.S. Valhalla - MedLab Alpha
    ------------------------------
    
    You'll have to start by activating the generator in the Xenoresearch Lab, then
    enter the morph ball tunnel in the floor there.  It'll lead you through a
    series of tunnels until you eventually grab the expansion in the ceiling of
    MedLab Alpha.
    
    ----------------------------
    Pirate Research - Scrapworks
    ----------------------------
    
    Work your way to the halfpipe inside the morph ball area, then use it to launch
    yourself up to the Spider Ball tracks.  You'll have to carefully bomb your way
    up to the expansion from the ledges below it.
    
    -----------------------------------
    Pirate Research - Processing Access
    -----------------------------------
    
    Use your X-Ray Visor to see behind the two thin Phazite slabs, then shoot the
    targets behind them to open up a passage in the ceiling.  Wall jump your way to
    the top, then hit the force field thing with some missiles to grab the
    expansion.
    
     -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

     -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    There are 9 energy cells to collect in the game.  You'll need some of them to
    finish the game, and you'll need the rest if you want to have 100% completion.
    
    ------------------
    Bryyo - Hanger Bay
    ------------------
    
    Use the hand panel next to the elevator shaft near the room's entrance to
    activate the elevator, then step into the hologram to go up a level.  Blast the
    grate off of the right ventilation duct, then morph into a ball and head in
    there.  Stand up and interact with the energy cell on the wall to take it
    (which will drop the energy shield guarding the orange door down below).
    
    ----------------------------------------
    Eastern SkyTown, Elysia - Xenoresearch B
    ----------------------------------------
    
    You'll have to remove this from the wall in order to grab the Seeker Missile
    item, so you can't really miss it.
    
    ----------------------------------
    Pirate Command - Command Courtyard
    ----------------------------------
    
    You'll have to take this one from the wall when you deactivate the ventilation
    fans, so you can't really miss it.
    
    ------------------------------------
    Pirate Research - Metroid Processing
    ------------------------------------
    
    You have to remove this one from the wall in the lower part of the room to
    access the central lift, so you can't really miss it.
    
    ----------------------------------
    SkyTown, Elysia - Ballista Storage
    ----------------------------------
    
    Use your Grapple Lasso to pump extra energy into the two fans on the wall to
    fry them, then take the energy cell that used to be powering them from the wall
    between them.
    
    --------------------
    Norion - Generator B
    --------------------
    
    After you've beaten the Metroid Hatcher, a morph ball tunnel will open near the
    door.  Enter it, then stand up when you come out of it and take the energy cell
    from the wall there.
    
    --------------------
    Bryyo - Hidden Court
    --------------------
    
    This one's complicated, mostly because you have to grab the generator from
    North Jungle Court before you can access it.  I suggest checking the main
    walkthrough of this guide for detailed room-by-room instructions if you're
    having trouble figuring out what to do for this one.
    
    ----------------------------
    Pirate Mines - Phazon Quarry
    ----------------------------
    
    When entering this area from Drill Shaft 2, you'll be able to simply grab the
    energy cell from the wall.
    
    -------------------------------
    G.F.S. Valhalla - Docking Bay 5
    -------------------------------
    
    This one is just sitting on the ground near the wreckage of a fighter on the
    docking bay where your ship is docked.

    Locations and full text entries for each Logbook item are included below.  The
    game arranges Creature and Research entries alphabetically, but not the Lore
    entries.  I've left them in their original order, just like the game lists
    them.
    
    Please note that I've only listed the location that you will first encounter
    each scan if you're playing the game using my guide.  Many entries can be found
    in multiple locations, or may be first encountered in a different location if
    you are not using my guide.
    
    If you're just interested in a simple list of entries, the section after this
    one has simple lists for each type of scan.
    
    Please note that I do not take credit for the full text entries included in
    this document;  I copied them directly out of the game by hand.  It's a tedious
    task that I wouldn't want anyone else to have to do, so by all means, if you'd
    like to use them for some other purpose, feel free to take them from my guide.
    It'd be absurd to expect you to copy them on your own when you'd just wind up
    with the same final product anyway (plus or minus a few typos, anyway).

    Aurora Unit 217
    ---------------
    
    Found:  SkyTown, Elysia - Aurora Chamber
    
    Aurora Unit 217 was originally built to support GF Naval Base Demeter, but was
    assigned to SkyTown base shortly after the Treaty of Elysia was signed 14 years
    ago.  217 has served admirably in its role as SkyTown administrator.  Vast
    amounts of tactical intel have been delivered from SkyTown under AU 217, along
    with valuable stellar and interstellar research data.  It has interfaced well
    with the Elysian mechanoids, and enjoys a productive working arrangement with
    them.
    
    ------------------
    Demolition Trooper
    ------------------
    
    Found:  Pirate Command - Skyway Access
    
    Demolition Troopers are not especially combat savvy and often rely on others to
    cover them in battle.  They are outfitted with explosive weaponry for special
    missions.  When the only way to the objective is straight through everything,
    the troopers in this unit are called upon to make it happen.  While capable of
    destroying the strongest of barriers, these troopers are not as capable in
    combat as traditional marines.
    
    -----------------
    Federation Marine
    -----------------
    
    Found:  G.F.S. Olympus - Docking Bay 5
    
    Federation Marines wear advanced suits of powered armor, allowing them to use
    potent weapons and resist heavy damage in battle.  Few can match them in
    combat.
    
    ---------------------
    Federation PED Marine
    ---------------------
    
    Found:  Norion - Cargo Dock A
    
    The Federation has created a system that utilizes Phazon to increase the power
    of the armor worn by GF Marines.  While active, the Phazon unit enhances the
    attack and defense systems of the armorsuit.
    
    --------------------
    Female Fleet Trooper
    --------------------
    
    Found:  G.F.S. Olympus - Docking Bay Access
    
    Fleet Troopers are the backbone of the navy, often ignored in favor of the
    gallant Federation Marines.  Their work isn't always dangerous, and is rarely
    glamorous.  Most are specialists, and possess a great deal of knowledge.
    
    ------------------
    Fleet Admiral Dane
    ------------------
    
    Found:  G.F.S. Olympus - Flag Bridge
    
    Fleet Admiral Castor Dane is known for his utmost dedication to protecting the
    Federation from its enemies.  He is stern and aggressive, and has a strong
    dislike for the Space Pirates.  Rumor has it they orphaned him at an early age,
    an act he still seeks to avenge.
    
    --------------
    Fleet Mechanic
    --------------
    
    Found:  G.F.S. Olympus - Docking Bay 5
    
    Fleet Mechanics are responsible for maintaining and repairing all Federation
    equipment.  Because of the vast amount of devices and vehicles the Federation
    utilizes, skilled mechanics are highly sought after and often overpaid.
    
    --------------------
    Halberd-Class Turret
    --------------------
    
    Found:  G.F.S. Olympus - Docking Bay 5
    
    The GMX-04 Halberd-class turret replaces the dated "Growler" turret.  It is an
    effective point-defense system for most security zones.  It is lightly armored,
    and nimble targets can evade its tracking system.
    
    ----------------
    Hunter Gandrayda
    ----------------
    
    Found:  Norion - Tower Elevator
    
    Gandrayda possesses the metamorphic ability to assume the form and abilities of
    other creatures.  This talent has led many to seek her out for stealth and
    reconnaissance missions, despite her powerful combat capabilities.  Details on
    the subject's origins and age are unknown, but her unique traits have made her
    a sought-after Hunter for missions.
    
    -----------
    Hunter Ghor
    -----------
    
    Found:  G.F.S. Olympus - Security Station
    
    Ghor is a cybernetic Bounty Hunter, capable of merging his body into larger
    mechanisms.  The most common of these is his armorsuit, which doubles as a
    gunship and provides him with a formidable combat arsenal.  The merges are
    often accompanied by a shift in personality, replacing his normally calm
    demeanor with an aggressive attitude.  He demonstrates a high proficiency with
    all things mechanical and is often called upon for missions requiring computer
    infiltration or manipulation.
    
    -------------
    Hunter Rundas
    -------------
    
    Found:  Norion - Tower Elevator
    
    Rundas is capable of generating and manipulating ice.  This trait is common
    among inhabitants of the moon Phrygis, but Rundas is one of the few who have
    used this ability for bounty hunting.  Subject is known for getting results,
    but considers himself without peer.  His arrogant demeanor has led him to
    mainly seek solo missions, and rarely works with others.

    Training Drone
    --------------
    
    Found:  G.F.S. Olympus - Docking Bay 5
    
    The Training Drone is used in all branches of the GF military.  They are
    designed to improve hand-eye coordination and accuracy.  One popular training
    exercise is to score as many consecutive hits on a drone as possible.  Gambling
    on shooting contests involving Training Drones is frowned upon, but fairly
    popular throughout the GF armed forces.

    Alpha Hopper
    ------------
    
    Found:  Bryyo - Gateway Hall
    
    Alpha Hoppers are characterized by their unique color and durable hide.  They
    are highly territorial and will attack any creature who wanders too close to
    their nests.  When hunting in packs, they will often keep their distance while
    others move in to attack at close range.  Like all Hoppers, their legs end in
    sharp talons and can be used to shred through any prey that gets close enough.
    
    ------
    Atomic
    ------
    
    Found:  Bryyo - G.F.S. Theseus
    
    Atomics are creatures composed entirely of energy.  A strong energy blast is
    adequate to destabilize the Atomic and cause it to explode.  They are sustained
    by their core, which generates a constant supply of electricity.  When an
    abundance of energy has been produced, the Atomic will discharge a section of
    its body in the form of an explosive projectile.  When near sources of energy
    of an opposite polarization, the Atomic will respond aggressively.
    
    -------------------
    Bryyonian Shriekbat
    -------------------
    
    Found:  Bryyo - Gateway
    
    One of the many types of Shriekbats found across the solar system, the
    Bryyonian Shriekbat behaves similar to all of its cousins.  Shriekbats will
    nest in small groups and make their home in a sheltered environment.  Dwelling
    on the top of caverns and ruins, the Shriekbat will hunt nearby insects and
    small creatures for food.  Once a nesting area has been found, it will be
    fiercely protected from any intruder.  The territorial Shriekbat will dive-bomb
    any creature that wanders too close, no matter what the size.
    
    --------------
    Fargul Hatcher
    --------------
    
    Found:  Bryyo - Hall of the Golems
    
    Within the Fargul Hatcher's maw is an organ cluster that is vulnerable to
    attack, but only when exposed.  Fargul Hatchers are capable of giving birth to
    dozens of young in a matter of moments.  These offspring will immediately swarm
    in on any nearby attacker.  Their skin is incredibly resilient and will deflect
    most weapon fire.
    
    -----------
    Fargul Wasp
    -----------
    
    Found:  Bryyo - Hall of the Golems
    
    Fargul Wasps are highly protective of their parent Hatcher.  Even moments after
    birth, they will swarm together and attack any nearby organism.  They are often
    used as a defense mechanism by the Fargul Hatcher, and as a result, few live to
    adulthood.
    
    ------
    Geemer
    ------
    
    Found:  Bryyo - Reliquary III
    
    The spiked shell of a Geemer is rather durable and can only be destroyed by an
    explosive blast.  While menacing in appearance, they are nonaggressive
    scavengers that feed on the waste of other creatures.  This food source has led
    to them being spreaders of many types of diseases.
    
    ------
    Gelbug
    ------
    
    Found:  Bryyo Fire - Temple Access
    
    Gelbugs are roaming insects encased in organic Phazite.  These cavern-dwelling
    bugs have come to rely on Fuel Gel as a source of sustenance.  Over time their
    shells have become saturated and crystallized with Fuel Gel.  As a result,
    their bodies have become highly unstable.  Weapon fire will disrupt the gel and
    cause the creature to detonate.
    
    ----------
    Gel Puffer
    ----------
    
    Found:  Bryyo - Gateway
    
    The exposure to Fuel Gel has left the shell of the Gel Puffer highly
    susceptible to weapon fire.  Gel Puffers have come to rely on the toxic vapors
    given off by Fuel Gel for sustenance.  They process these gasses and then expel
    the excess to stay afloat.  The brittle shell of the Puffer, while durable in
    appearance, is rather thin and easily damaged.
    
    -------
    Gel Ray
    -------
    
    Found:  Bryyo Fire - Gel Hall
    
    Gel Rays are nonaggressive bioforms native to Bryyo.  They are one of the few
    creatures who make their home within the caustic pools of Fuel Gel.  The unique
    exterior and shape of the Gel Ray allow it to withstand and glide through
    rivers of gel.  Their main source of sustenance is small organisms that exist
    within Fuel Gel, but they are known to occassionally leap out to feed on
    insects that fly near the gel's surface.
    
    -------
    Gragnol
    -------
    
    Found:  Bryyo - Gateway Hall
    
    Gragnols are vulnerable to most weapons, as they have not developed the durable
    exoskeleton found on adult members of the species.  They often travel and
    attack in groups.  If they sense a nearby threat to their hives, they will not
    hesitate to advance.  Their offensive capabilities are underdeveloped, leaving
    the ability to fire pulses of Phazon energy their only form of attack.
    
    -------------
    Gragnol Adult
    -------------
    
    Found:  Bryyo Fire - Gel Processing Site
    
    The large tail that characterizes Gragnol Adults is also their weakness:  if
    pulled with enough force, it will tear them apart.  An explosive blast will
    temporarily incapacitate them, making them easier to target.  They possess the
    ability to generate an energy shield around their bodies, preventing Beam shots
    from damaging them.  They are cunning predators, flying through their turf in
    search of unwary prey.  They use bursts of Phazon energy to overwhelm their
    targets, and then swoop down to finish them.  Maturity has provided them with a
    very durable exoskeleton.
    
    ------
    Hopper
    ------
    
    Found:  Bryyo - Gateway
    
    These aggressive insectoids use small hops to get within striking distance and
    then pounce, using their talons to tear away at their prey.  From a distance
    they will fire bursts of venom at their target.  Despite their aggressive
    nature, they are somewhat fragile and can be easily dispatched.  Because of
    this they will commonly hunt in packs.
    
    -----
    Korba
    -----
    
    Found:  Bryyo - Hillside Vista
    
    The Korba is a vicious, resilient bioform.  It prefers to lurk above its
    hunting grounds, waiting for prey.  The Korba relies on the smaller Snatchers
    to levitate victims to a point where the Korba can devour them.  What the Korba
    cannnot digest, it expels to feed the Snatchers.  This symbiotic relationship
    works well for both Korba and Snatchers.
    
    -------
    Mogenar
    -------
    
    Found:  Bryyo Seed - Bryyo Leviathan Core
    
    Corrupted War Golem reanimated and energized with Phazon.  Relies on socketed
    energy orbs as a source of power.  The orbs themselves have a fragile exterior
    but contain pure Phazon energy within.  This energy must be completely
    overloaded before it will be destroyed.  Eliminating all power sources is the
    only way to bring Mogenar offline.
    
    ---------
    Nightbarb
    ---------
    
    Found:  Bryyo - Cliffside Airdock
    
    Nightbarbs are predators, traveling in packs to search for prey.  They have the
    ability to generate a protective field of energy around their bodies.  The
    ability is unstable, however.  If the field makes contact with another life
    force, it will overload.  This also consumes the life force of the Nightbarb,
    much like a bee's sting ends its life.
    
    ----------
    Reptilicus
    ----------
    
    Found:  Bryyo - Grand Court Path
    
    Scans indicate a mutation that allows the Reptilicus to teleport over short
    distances.  Commonly used as a combat tactic to corner and trap their prey.
    The Reptilicus appear to suffer from Phazon corruption, and all higher thought
    processes have been replaced by savage bloodlust.  This corruption has also
    increased their resistance to heat-based attacks and Fuel Gel.
    
    -----------------
    Reptilicus Hunter
    -----------------
    
    Found:  Bryyo - Grand Court
    
    Phazon corruption has granted Reptilicus Hunters the ability of cloaking
    themselves.  They use this to their advantage and will hide or move positions
    while cloaked to gain the upper hand in combat.  Reptilicus Hunters are fairly
    organized despite their primitive nature.  Usually attacking in small groups,
    they patiently wait for their prey to become isolated in a locked area before
    attacking.  Their weaponry consists of an energy whip for close-range assaults
    and a throwing chakram for long-range attacks.  They have adapted to the harsh
    climates of Bryyo, and are quite resistant to Fuel Gel and heat-based attacks.
    
    ---------
    Scorchbug
    ---------
    
    Found:  Bryyo Fire - Temple Reservoir
    
    Scorchbugs are exclusively found on Fuel Gel-producing planets such as Bryyo.
    the tiny insects subsist entirely on the volatile gel.  Like many creatures
    with this diet, they have taken on the ignitable characteristics of their food
    source.  When shot with any type of weaponry, they burst into a small
    explosion, leaving behind only a scorch mark.  It is from this trait that they
    have earned their name.
    
    -------
    Shelbug
    -------
    
    Found:  Bryyo - Grand Court Path
    
    Shelbugs are slow-moving, roaming insects whose soft bodies are easily damaged.
    Until they reach maturity they will not develop their Phazite shell.  Unable to
    retract into a shell to avoid damage, they must aggressively attack any
    potential threat.  They will extend sharp spines to fend off attackers or
    propel these spines at enemies.
    
    --------
    Snatcher
    --------
    
    Found:  Bryyo - Hillside Vista
    
    Snatchers are cunning, albeit weak, bioforms.  Unable to kill most prey on
    their own, they rely on the stronger Korba to do the work for them.  Snatchers
    will swarm onto a target until it is overwhelmed.  Once they have their prey,
    they use their power to levitate, lifting the victim to a point where the Korba
    can devour them.  What the Korba cannot digest, it expels to feed the
    Snatchers.  This symbiotic relationship works well for both Snatchers and the
    Korba.

    Warp Hound
    ----------
    
    Found:  Bryyo Fire - Gel Processing Site
    
    Warp Hounds are susceptible to low-temperature attacks, due to the nature of
    their thermal-energy-driven biosystem.  They are often used by Reptilicus as
    guards and hunt beasts.  They consume Fuel Gel to survive, and can expel blasts
    of converted thermal energy to attack and defend.  The creatures can teleport
    over short distances, disrupting many forms of electronic targeting in the
    process.

    Aerial Repair Drone
    -------------------
    
    Found:  SkyTown, Elysia - Main Docking Bay
    
    An evolved version of the ground units, these drones were designed to perform
    basic maintenance and repair tasks.  Their small size and flight capabilities
    allow them access to the hardest-to-reach areas of SkyTown.  Repair drones are
    manufactured and activated every 200 years, with the previous units being
    recycled for construction materials.
    
    -------
    Databot
    -------
    
    Found:  SkyTown, Elysia - Main Docking Bay
    
    Databots were designed by the Elysians as a means to record and pass on
    historical data.  They patrol along their set area until disrupted, and then
    project a holographic datafile.  However, only those equipped with Chozo-based
    visor technology can access this information.
    
    -------------
    Defense Drone
    -------------
    
    Found:  SkyTown, Elysia - Ballista Storage
    
    The Defense Drone is used to secure key areas within SkyTown.  The externally
    mounted antennas are tied into the unit's optic array.  By destroying all of
    the antennas, the optic array will overload and be vulnerable for a short
    period.  The machine's Control Unit is also vulnerable, but must be exposed to
    be targeted.  Its armor is immune to small-arms fire.
    
    ----------------------
    "Dragoon" Battle Drone
    ----------------------
    
    Found:  SkyTown, Elysia - Skybridge Hera
    
    The "Dragoon" Battle Drone is a resilient foe, but the thruster controls of the
    unit are vulnerable and can be easily ripped off.  Originally designed to keep
    local aerial bioforms away from delicate instruments, the "Dragoon" is now used
    in a combat role.  It carries twin Rocket Pods for offense.  Durable armor and
    a Missile-jamming system help keep the unit safe.
    
    -----------------
    Elysian Shriekbat
    -----------------
    
    Found:  SkyTown, Elysia - Construction Bay
    
    Like all Shriekbats, the Elysian Shriekbat will dive-bomb any creature that
    wanders too close and detonate on cantact.  However, these are not actual
    creatures, but machines made to mimic their real-life counterparts.  Designed
    centuries ago, their original purpose is unknown.  They now roam the hovering
    facilities over Elysia, often in small flocks.
    
    ------
    Helios
    ------
    
    Found:  Elysia Seed - Elysian Leviathan Core
    
    Helio's exterior armor is well shielded, but still vulnerable to Beam weaponry.
    Inflicting enough damage will cause him to overheat and expose his
    Phazon-enhanced core.  This core can be overloaded with Phazon-based energy.
    Destruction of the core unit should prove fatal, but is difficult to achieve.
    Target is the prime bot of a large group of Swarmbots, all of which are
    energized by Phazon.  Helios will use the Swarmbots for both offensive and
    defensive measures.  Assuming different formations will allow for various forms
    of attack.
    
    ------------
    Repair Drone
    ------------
    
    Found:  SkyTown, Elysia - Aurora Lift
    
    The original version of the Elysian Repair Drone.  Because of their limited
    movement systems, these units quickly proved to be insufficient in performing
    the necessary maintenance duties.  Used as a base design, the aerial mode was
    created to address all flaws with the original version.  Made obsolete by the
    aerial model, all production and manufacturing was halted over 150 years ago.
    Only a handful of these units remain active.
    
    ----------
    Sky Puffer
    ----------
    
    Found:  SkyTown, Elysia - Maintenance Shaft AU
    
    The external shell of a Sky Puffer is incredibly fragile, susceptible to most
    small-arms fire.  Only a few shots from basic weapons can damage it.  Sky
    Puffers are native to the planet Elysia.  They feed on the various noxious
    gasses in the atmosphere.  They are especially fond of Phazon gas.
    
    --------
    Steambot
    --------
    
    Found:  SkyTown, Elysia - Steambot Barracks
    
    The Steambot's lightly armored exterior can be damaged by any weapon.
    High-temperature weapons are particularly effective, and can render them inert
    and beyond repair.  Unlike their lightweight cousins, they are made of durable
    metals and cannot be tossed around.  Steambots serve as combat units for
    Steamlords.  They are armed with kinetic-beam pistols, Missile racks, and can
    use their tool-arms in close combat.  Damaged units can be restored by
    Steamlords.
    
    ---------
    Steamlord
    ---------
    
    Found:  SkyTown, Elysia - Hub Access
    
    Steamlords command the worker drones of SkyTown.  They also repair them when
    they malfunction or break down.  Lightly armored, they rely on their cloaking
    field to evade their enemies.  They can generate localized EMP fields to hinder
    enemy visor systems.
    
    -----------
    Steamspider
    -----------
    
    Found:  Eastern SkyTown, Elysia - Xenoresearch B
    
    Steamspiders were created by the Steamlords as basic light laborers.  They have
    since went rogue, and now run wild in SkyTown.  Though of minimal threat alone,
    a swarm of them can be a nuisance.
    
    --------
    Swarmbot
    --------
    
    Found:  Eastern SkyTown, Elysia - Gearworks
    
    Swarmbots tend to travel in groups.  They can evade many inbound attacks, and
    can perform aerial maneuvers that make them nearly impossible to damage.  They
    can generate pulses of energy to damage or disrupt enemy targets.  As a
    desperate measure, they will perform suicide runs on an enemy.
    
    ------
    Tinbot
    ------
    
    Found:  SkyTown, Elysia - Arrival Station
    
    Tinbots are made from a lightweight metal and can easily be knocked around from
    explosions or high-speed impacts.  This metal is also quite vulnerable to heat
    and can be melted by high-temperature weapons.  Converted for security duty,
    the Tinbots now patrol SkyTown tirelessly.  They are armed with kinetic-beam
    pistols and can use their tool-arms in close combat.
    
    --------------------
    Transportation Drone
    --------------------
    
    Found:  SkyTown, Elysia - Main Docking Bay
    
    Class D Transportation Drones are used for the distribution of supplies and
    materials across all of SkyTown.  Upon activation each unit is assigned a set
    position along a transit route that it will use exclusively.  The constant
    upkeep of the facility requires that they continuously deliver their shipments
    to their destinations at a steady pace.

    Advanced Aerotrooper
    --------------------
    
    Found:  Eastern SkyTown, Elysia - Chozo Observatory
    
    When the going gets tough, the tough put on armor.  Advanced Aerotroopers wear
    an extra layer of ablative armor that is susceptible to explosive blasts.  Like
    regular Aerotroopers, they wield two Remote Attack Pods in combat.  These are
    outfitted with a Particle Cannon and a Gel Bomb Rack.  Gel Bombs stick to their
    targets until detonation.  High-velocity movement can remove Gel Bombs.
    
    -----------------------
    Advanced Pirate Trooper
    -----------------------
    
    Found:  Bryyo - Ancient Courtyard
    
    Advanced Pirate Troopers wear an additional layer of ablative armor.  Explosive
    attacks are recommended to break the armor away.  Basic armament includes an
    assault rifle and energy scythe, both powered by Phazon.  EMP grenades are
    often employed against power-armored foes.  A new Dash Jet system provides
    increased mobility.
    
    -----------------------
    Advanced Shield Trooper
    -----------------------
    
    Found:  Bryyo Fire - Temple of Bryyo
    
    Advanced Shield Troopers wear an extra layer of ablative armor:  it is
    susceptible to explosive attacks.  In addition to their armor, they wield a
    portable battle shield.  While the shield provides excellent protection against
    incoming fire, it can also be easily ripped off.  Phazon-based attacks are
    capable of destroying the shield.
    
    --------
    Aeromine
    --------
    
    Found:  G.F.S. Olympus - Repair Bay Shaft
    
    Aeromines suffer from a design flaw -- their shield- and beam-weapon units use
    the same power source, allowing only one to function at a time.  This exposes
    the unit to damage when it fires at enemies.  Aeromines were originally
    designed to take the role of sentry for Space Pirates, but have since been put
    to use in combat as well.  Because of the initial design flaw, these units do
    not pose much of a threat.  After the executions of the first design team, the
    new pirate designers swore to correct this flaw with great haste.
    
    -----------
    Aerotrooper
    -----------
    
    Found:  Norion - Cargo Dock A
    
    Aerotroopers are dangerous foes, but their lack of armor leaves them vulnerable
    to explosive blasts.  A weakness also lies in the jet pack:  igniting it will
    allow the pack to be separated from the pilot.  They use twin Remote Attack
    Pods to engage targets.  The Attack Pods are capable of using a Particle Cannon
    or a Helix Missile Pod.  They can tap their Phazon power unit to warp from
    point to point.
    
    -------------------
    Armored Aerotrooper
    -------------------
    
    Found:  Bryyo Fire - Temple of Bryyo
    
    Armored Aerotroopers are deployed in harsh combat zones.  Their armor is
    resilient, but susceptible to explosive blasts.  In battle they use twin Remote
    Attack Pods to engage targets.  They are equipped with a Particle Cannon and a
    Helix Missile Pod.  They can tap their Phazon power unit to warp from point to
    point.  A weakness lies in the jet pack:  ignite and separate it from the pilot
    to neutralize the target.
    
    ----------------------
    Armored Pirate Militia
    ----------------------
    
    Found:  G.F.S. Olympus - Xenoresearch Lab
    
    Members of the Armored Pirate Militia have been granted lightweight armorsuits
    for combat use.  While this provides some additional resistance to Beam
    weapons, they are still vulnerable to explosive attacks.  Members of the
    Armored Pirate Militia are mostly inept soldiers who have yet to die in combat.
    
    ----------------------
    Armored Pirate Trooper
    ----------------------
    
    Found:  Bryyo Fire - Temple of Bryyo
    
    Armored Pirate Troopers are equipped with a standard armorsuit.  It provides
    adequate protection against Beam attacks but is vulnerable to explosive blasts.
    They are outfitted with all the basic pirate armaments.  This includes an
    assault rifle and energy scythe, both powered by Phazon.  EMP grenades are
    often employed against power-armored foes.  A new Dash Jet system provides
    increased mobility.
    
    ----------------------
    Armored Shield Trooper
    ----------------------
    
    Found:  SkyTown, Elysia - Spire
    
    Armored Shield Troopers are equipped with a standard armorsuit.  It is
    resilient, but still vulnerable to explosive attacks.  In addition to their
    armor, they wield a portable shield.  Removing the shield leaves them open to
    all attacks.  The shield is also vulnerable to Phazon-based attacks.
    
    -------------------
    Assault Aerotrooper
    -------------------
    
    Found:  Pirate Research - Craneyard
    
    Only the best can join the ranks of the Assault Aerotroopers.  Heavily armored,
    they are resistant to most weapon systems.  Their unique armor is able to
    deflect all Missile attacks, but can still be damaged by Beam weapons.  Like
    regular Aerotroopers, they wield two Remote Attack Pods in combat.  One is
    equipped with a Particle Cannon, the other with a Gel Bomb Rack.  Gel Bombs
    stick to their targets until detonation.  High-velocity movement can remove Gel
    Bombs.
    
    ----------------------
    Assault Pirate Trooper
    ----------------------
    
    Found:  Bryyo - Ancient Courtyard
    
    The Assault Pirate Troopers are some of the best the pirate military has to
    offer.  They are heavily armed and are resistant to most attacks.  Their unique
    armor will deflect all Missile fire, but is still damaged by Beam attacks.
    Basic armament includes an assault rifle and energy scythe, both powered by
    Phazon.  EMP grenades are often employed against power-armored foes.  A new
    Dash Jet system provides increased mobility.
    
    ----------------------
    Assault Shield Trooper
    ----------------------
    
    Found:  Pirate Research - Metroid Processing
    
    Assault Shield Troopers are heavily armored and resistant to most weapon
    systems.  Their unique armor will deflect Missile attacks, but not Beam fire.
    In addition to their armor, they wield a portable battle shield.  Their battle
    shield provides protection against all standard weapon fire, but can be easily
    torn off.  Phazon-based weapons are capable of destroying the shield.
    
    ---------------
    Aurora Unit 313
    ---------------
    
    Found:  Phaaze - Sanctum
    
    Aurora 313 has somehow been fused with the bioessence of Dark Samus.  While
    combat shields protect most of the unit, a weak spot has been detected at the
    cable junction.  Damaging the unit's core will expose this point, but the core
    itself is protected by an armored hatch.  Tentacle ports can be damaged to
    initiate stunning cerebral-feedback pulses within the target.  While
    incapacitated, the hatch will be unprotected and able to be pulled open.  This
    unit has been heavily mutated by Phazon exposure.  It appears to be
    symbiotically connected to the planet Phaaze as well.
    
    ----------------
    Berserker Knight
    ----------------
    
    Found:  Bryyo - Ancient Courtyard
    
    A Berserker Knight's Phazite armor must be removed before unit can be damaged:
    only the Phazon-based projectile attacks the creature fires can destroy it.
    The Berserker Knight serves as a shocking example of the lengths the Space
    Pirates will go to in their quest for dominance.  Heavily mutated by Phazon
    exposure, the unit is nearly mindless, driven by battle lust.
    
    --------------
    Berserker Lord
    --------------
    
    Found:  G.F.S. Olympus - Docking Bay 5
    
    Berserker Lords are highly resistant to damage.  Their shoulders are the only
    unprotected area vulnerable to standard weapon fire.  Their main defense lies
    in their head-mounted Phazite plating, which can only be destroyed by the
    projectiles it fires.  Berskerker Lords are a desperate measure, designed to
    exploit Phazon as much as possible.  The few Berserker Knights that survive the
    highest level of corruption are promoted to Lord status.  Lords are
    distinguished by their ornate Phazite plating and the Phazon reserves they
    carry on their backs.
    
    ---------------
    Commando Pirate
    ---------------
    
    Found:  Pirate Research - Scrapvault
    
    Commando Pirates use the best gear available:  only Beams of the highest
    temperature can penetrate the layer of Phazite in the armorsuit.  All of the
    weaponry is powered by Phazon.  Each commando has a combat cloaking field,
    along with boost thrusters and a personal teleporter.  The Phazite armor they
    wear makes them extremely resistant to damage in combat.
    
    ---------
    Crawlmine
    ---------
    
    Found:  G.F.S. Olympus - Xenoresearch Lab
    
    Crawlmines are not terribly bright and rely on suicide strikes as their main
    form of attack.  They were designed to patrol small areas such as ventilation
    shafts and maintenance tunnels.  Though relatively harmless alone, they can be
    dangerous in large numbers.
    
    ---------
    Crawltank
    ---------
    
    Found:  G.F.S. Olympus - Xenoresearch Lab
    
    Crawltanks are mobile, ground-based defense drones, but are easily destroyed by
    standard weapon fire.  They can be equipped with different cannons, including a
    Phazon Beam system.  They are not built for sustained combat, and are better
    suited for light patrol and security roles.
    
    ----------
    Dark Samus
    ----------
    
    Found:  Phaaze - Sanctum
    
    Target is composed of pure Phazon energy and is highly unstable.  Scans
    indicate that Hypermode attacks are capable of disrupting her, likely a result
    of Hypermode being energized by Samus's body.  Dark Samus is capable of
    generating "echoes" of herself to aid her in battle.  These units will be used
    as increased firepower and act as distractions while she replenishes her
    energy:  they should be destroyed immediately.  She is capable of absorbing
    energy from Phaaze to replenish her own.
    
    ---------
    Gandrayda
    ---------
    
    Found:  Pirate Research - Proving Grounds
    
    Gandrayda's ability to shape-shift has been greatly enhanced by Phazon
    exposure, allowing her to assume a number of deadly forms at will.  These new
    forms come with a cost, as she also inherits their weaknesses.  A mistress of
    stealth, she will employ her personal cloaking field often, setting up her next
    deadly attack.  An advanced visor system may be able to detect her location.
    
    ----
    Ghor
    ----
    
    Found:  SkyTown, Elysia - Main Docking Bay
    
    Ghor's energy shield is capable of repelling all weapon fire, but the
    back-mounted generator is exposed to attack.  Overloading the generator could
    expose the well-protected critical systems behind his battle armor.  Ghor's
    arsenal is considerable.  Plasma-based beam weapons, attack claws, and a
    multimissile system are at the cyborg's disposal in battle.  These battle
    systems can be combined and fired at once as a devastating alpha strike.
    Target is also capable of high-speed ramming attack, although this is
    potentially dangerous if performed over a slippery surface.
    
    -------------------
    "Jolly Roger" Drone
    -------------------
    
    Found:  Norion - Generator A
    
    The "Jolly Roger" Drone is designed for quick aerial maneuvers, but this comes
    at the cost of survivability.  The fragile armor of the unit is vulnerable to
    weapon fire of any type.  The Jolly Roger is based on Federation tech, but has
    been considerably upgraded.  Powered by Phazon, the mechanoid can be a serious
    threat in battle, especially in groups.
    
    --------
    Jumpmine
    --------
    
    Found:  Norion - Conduit A
    
    The Jumpmine was developed by the Space Pirates as a cheap alternative to an
    armed trooper.  The Jumpmine scans its surroundings until it detects an enemy
    target.  It then triggers a small thruster, "jumping" a set distance in the
    air.  Once launched, its weapon pod is engaged, saturating the local area with
    fire.  It explodes afterward to prevent use by enemy forces.
    
    ------------
    Korakk Beast
    ------------
    
    Found:  Bryyo - Jousting Field
    
    Korakks are prized by the Space Pirates, who use them as cavalry mounts.  Their
    belly is occasionally vulnerable, but guarded from all sides.  Finding a way to
    get underneath it and attacking would be effective.  Nerve endings in the tail
    can be stressed through grappling, but only when the tail is extended.  The
    interior of a Korakk's mouth, as well as the tip of their tongue, contains
    sensitive nerve clusters.  Attacking these points could temporarily
    incapacitate the creature.  They can emit Phazon energy through their feet and
    tongue.  The Phazite armor they wear will repel most damage.
    
    -----------
    Meta Ridley
    -----------
    
    Found:  Norion - Generator C
    
    Target's body is covered with incredibly durable armorskin, making it difficult
    to damage.  All parts of the body are protected except for the mouth, where
    Meta Ridley fires his plasma-powered weaponry.  Observing target may reveal
    additional target points.  Target will use powerful plasma-based ranged
    attacks, along with potent melee strikes.
    
    ------------
    Omega Ridley
    ------------
    
    Found:  Pirate Seed - Pirate Homeworld Leviathan Core
    
    Revived and regenerated through Phazon exposure, Omega Ridley has been
    energized to a new combat threat level.  Target retains extremely durable,
    Phazon-enhanced armorskin, as well as protective armored plating.  Scans
    indicate that a recent injury has not fully healed:  expose and target wound to
    inflict damage.  Target will act to protect this vulnerability:  seek ways to
    stun the enemy and leave it open for deadly attacks.
    
    ----------------------
    Phazon Harvester Drone
    ----------------------
    
    Found:  Pirate Mines - Phazon Harvesting
    
    Man-portable weaponry cannot penetrate the thick hull of the Phazon Harvester.
    The anti-air weapon system is vulnerable, but overloading it with weapon fire
    will only disable the drone temporarily.  The pirates converted several
    Goliath-class heavy assault drones into Phazon-collecting units.  The drone can
    use its Harvesting Beam Cannon for defense, and is equipped with an
    anti-aircraft missile defense system.
    
    ------------------
    Pirate Cargo Drone
    ------------------
    
    Found:  Pirate Command - Landing Site Bravo
    
    Pirate Cargo Drones were designed to assist with the transporting of supplies
    throughout the Pirate Homeworld.  Their aerial capabilities allow them to
    navigate the underground catacombs with relative ease.  Cargo often consists of
    items too dangerous or volatile to be moved by hand.
    
    ----------------
    Pirate Commander
    ----------------
    
    Found:  Pirate Command - Transit Station Leviathan
    
    Commanders make heavy use of their personal teleporter, moving to favorable
    positions and across the battlefield, giving orders and support as needed.
    They carry all of the weaponry and gear used by commandos, with the exception
    of their armor, which is forged out of ultrarare Red Phazite.  A rare breed,
    Pirate Commanders have lived to rise to the ruling caste on the Pirate
    Homeworld.  Each has been a commando for at least ten years.
    
    -------------
    Pirate Hussar
    -------------
    
    Found:  Bryyo - Jousting Field
    
    Hussars are unusually brave for Space Pirates, willing to ride the deadly
    Korakk beast into combat.  Their Phazon Energy Lances are deadly at any range.
    Hussars and their mounts have a strange bond.  If a Hussar is slain, his
    Korrakk will fight to avenge his death.
    
    --------------
    Pirate Militia
    --------------
    
    Found:  G.F.S. Olympus - Flag Bridge Access
    
    The pirates have not enhanced all of their fighting forces.  They continue to
    use militia units in battle.  These groups are made up of slaves and criminals,
    and do not receive the Phazon enhancements given to the regular army troopers.
    They are surprisingly obedient to the upper castes within the pirate military.
    Rumor has it that disobedient militia members often find themselves as dinner
    for regular army troopers.
    
    --------------
    Pirate Trooper
    --------------
    
    Found:  Norion - Cargo Dock A
    
    The Space Pirate military forces continue to use Phazon, including a new Phazon
    enhancement system.  Basic armament includes an assault rifle and energy
    scythe, both powered by Phazon.  EMP grenades are often employed against
    power-armored foes.  A new Dash Jet system provides increased mobility.
    
    -----------
    Puffer Mine
    -----------
    
    Found:  Pirate Research - Airshaft
    
    Avoid contact with the Puffer Mine.  These creatures are a cybernetically
    enhanced version of the Puffers native to the Pirate Homeworld.  Engineered by
    Space Pirates, they are now used as patrol animals.  Their bodies have been
    filled with Phazon gas to be used as a defensive measure.  If their shell is
    broken, their bodies explode and send a cloud of toxic gas out all around them.
    Nearby attackers rarely escape the volatile fumes.
    
    --------------------
    Remorse-Class Turret
    --------------------
    
    Found:  Bryyo - Generator Hall South
    
    Fast targets can evade the limited targeting system of the "Remorse" turret.
    The Space Pirates have replaced their dated "Humility" turrets with a new unit
    designed by top engineers.  Powered by Phazon, the "Remorse" unit is capable of
    withstanding more damage than the earlier model.
    
    ------
    Rundas
    ------
    
    Found:  Bryyo Fire - Temple of Bryyo
    
    Phazon exposure has greatly enhanced Rundas and his ability to generate ice,
    making him deadly at any range.  His durable ice armor has one weak point --
    the neck.  Serious physical stress can weaken and remove it, exposing Rundas to
    attack.  This weak point cannot be seized as long as Rundas is active.  He can
    create frozen objects at will, and can freeze Missiles in midflight.  Smaller
    ice-based projectiles can be shot down, but it is recommended to evade larger
    attacks.  Be advised:  Rundas can trigger a Hypermode state, elevating his
    threat level to match your own.

    Scritter
    --------
    
    Found:  Pirate Command - Lift Hub
    
    Scritters are common vermin that are usually found underground.  They tend to
    nest in dark places and come out only to feed.  Their main source of sustenance
    is Phazon, a weakness pirate slaves use against them.  Scritters will often be
    caught in simple traps set out by the starving pirate slaves who then feed on
    the small creatures.  But the pirates rarely have the last laugh, as some
    internal organs of the Scritter will release a toxic fluid when bitten.  Those
    who become violently ill because of this are often said to have a case of "the
    scritters."

    Shield Pirate Militia
    ---------------------
    
    Found:  Norion - Cargo Dock A
    
    Some members of the Pirate Militia have been granted use of regular
    army-trooper equipment.  This unit has been given the portable battle shield.
    Its portability is its weakness, however.  Remove it from the pirate's grip to
    eliminate its primary defense system.  The shield is also susceptible to
    Phazon-based attacks.
    
    ---------------------
    Shield Pirate Trooper
    ---------------------
    
    Found:  Norion - Conduit A
    
    The Space Pirates have developed a man-portable battle shield that is resistant
    to most small-arms fire.  Its portability is its weakness, however.  Remove it
    from the pirate's grip to eliminate its primary defense system.  Phazon-based
    attacks are capable of destroying the shield.
    
    --------------------------
    Space Pirate Assault Skiff
    --------------------------
    
    Found:  Bryyo - Field Access
    
    The fast-moving Space Pirate Assault Skiff is used to support troops in combat.
    The skiff is mounted with a tribeam cannon, which is capable of firing powerful
    charged shots.  However, the cannon itself is unprotected and can be easily
    overloaded.  This modified version of the ATC has sacrificed durability for
    speed, and often employs hit-and-run tactics.
    
    ----------------
    Space Pirate ATC
    ----------------
    
    Found:  Norion - Cargo Dock A
    
    The Space Pirate Armored Tactical Carrier (ATC) is surprisingly well built and
    armored.  A forward-mounted heat vent is its only vulnerable spot.  Tribeam
    cannons help the unit deal out damage while on missions as well.  Designed for
    rapid transit to and from hot zones, the unit is not designed for long-term
    engagements.  It has a relatively small fuel supply, a sacrifice made for
    heavier armament and armor.
    
    -------------------------
    Space Pirate Boarding Pod
    -------------------------
    
    Found:  G.F.S. Olympus - Port Observation Deck
    
    Pirate boarding pods are crude, even by their standards.  They are composed of
    an aged propulsion drive, a cramped crew-transport module, and a nose cone
    packed with high explosives.  The pilot guides the pod toward the target ship,
    then rams it, detonating the explosives upon impact in an attempt to breach the
    hull.  If a breach is created, the crew within exits the pod.
    
    Of course, mishaps occur.  Sometimes the explosives go off prematurely,
    exposing the crew to vacuum.  Other times the detonation fails to occur,
    leaving the pod to bounce off the target's hull.  The shielding between
    explosives and crew is substandard, and often fails to protect the crew from
    the explosion.  The pod's nickname of "Space Coffin" is well earned.
    
    -------------------
    Urtragian Shriekbat
    -------------------
    
    Found:  Pirate Research - Scrapvault
    
    Urtragian Shriekbats are fiercely territorial insectoids and will dive-bomb
    anything that wanders near.  This attack is fatal for the Shriekbat, as the
    impact sets off a discharge of thermal energy.  Because of their high internal
    temperatures, they tend to seek cool climates to dwell in.  They have come to
    seek shelter inside the many pirate facilities located on the Pirate Homeworld.

    Hopping Metroid
    ---------------
    
    Found:  Norion - Cargo Dock B
    
    Radical mutation has removed the ability to fly from this strain of Metroid,
    but its vulnerability to cold remains.  Subject now uses its powerful legs for
    locomotion.  Legs contain sharp formations of Phazite, which the creature uses
    to slice through enemy defenses.
    
    ------
    Jelsac
    ------
    
    Found:  Phaaze - Entry Canyon
    
    Jelsacs are aggressive creatures, roaming their territory and defending it from
    all comers.  When provoked, a Jelsac will begin to expand its body, quickly
    filling it with a caustic, Phazon-based venom.  This continues until the Jelsac
    explodes, sending a spray of deadly fluid in all directions.
    
    ----------------
    Leviathan Infant
    ----------------
    
    Found:  Phaaze - Genesis Chamber
    
    Leviathans are the children of Phaaze.  They are bioforms that begin life deep
    within the planet, inside the base of a serpentine organ that serves as a womb.
    The Leviathan will remain in here, feeding on an endless supply of Phazon,
    until it has developed its Phazon core.
    
    The developed core marks the Leviathan's transition into adolescence and its
    departure from the womb.  The serpentine organ moves the adolescent from deep
    inside Phaaze and releases it closer to the planet's surface.  Here the bioform
    will continue to grow and mature beneath its older siblings.  As time passes
    and the older ones are launched into space, the Leviathan will slowly make its
    way to the planet's surface.  It is here the Leviathan will reach full
    maturity.  Once Phaaze has located a planetary target to corrupt, it will
    launch the Leviathan into space.
    
    The Leviathan is capable of interstellar travel, creating wormholes in space to
    expedite the journey.  Instinctively, it homes in on its planetary target.
    Shortly after impact, the bioform dies, leaving its armored shell to protect
    the Phazon core.  Before it dies, the bioform often attracts and entralls a
    large local predator.  After mutating it through intense Phazon exposure, it
    compels the creature to protect the core.  The core then begins to seep into
    the planet, replacing the local ecosystem with one based on Phazon.
    
    -------------
    Liquid Phazon
    -------------
    
    Found:  Norion - Conduit B
    
    Liquid Phazon appears to be a semisentient blob of Phazon.  Their young are
    known as Phazon Grubs, and eventually metamorph into their adult, or "puddle"
    form.  They exude a toxic chemical to protect themselves from predators.
    Contact with the substance can be deadly.  They can alter their shape in a 
    limited fashion, usually to avoid incoming attacks.
    
    ---------------
    Metroid Hatcher
    ---------------
    
    Found:  Norion - Generator B
    
    Mutation has robbed the Metroid Hatcher of its ability to phase, but has
    provided it a hardened outer shell which has identical attributes as Phazite.
    This shell protects the creature's heart, located at the core of its head.  The
    Hatcher's tentacles are quite dangerous, and can leech energy from any targets
    they connect to.  However, the tentacles are also the creature's weak point.
    If all its tentacles are ripped from its body, it will perish.  As such, it
    will attempt to recover energy by retracting them into its shell when they take
    damage.  While the Hatcher's tentacles are retracted, it is unable to attack,
    relying on the Phazon Metroids it spawns from its mouth for protection.  If the
    interior of the creature is hit while its mouth is open, it loses its strength.
    The Hatcher's tentacles can be ripped off if they are pulled at this time.
    
    --------
    Miniroid
    --------
    
    Found:  G.F.S. Valhalla - Hangar A Access
    
    Miniroids, tiny and weak, will travel in a flock for protection.  They float
    and fly about in seach of sustenance.  Those that suvive will grow quickly,
    becoming the feared parasites known throughout the cosmos as Phazon Metroids.
    
    --------
    Phaazoid
    --------
    
    Found:  SkyTown, Elysia - Construction Bay
    
    Phaazoids are masses of Phazon energy that form after a Leviathan has been
    destroyed.  They still retain a small bit of sentience and are mindlessly
    aggressive.  The only way to damage a Phaazoid is by attacking it with
    Phazon-based attacks.  However, this has a side effect of causing the creature
    to split into two smaller forms.  Once the Phaazoid has split small enough, it
    will simply fly at a target and detonate on contact.  It is said that some
    Phaazoids may split into a rare, crimson-colored form.
    
    --------
    Phaz-Ing
    --------
    
    Found:  G.F.S. Valhalla - Security Station
    
    Phaz-Ing bodies are weak to physical stress and can be easily pulled apart.
    These morphing blobs of Phazon often prefer to stay in puddle form and will
    only shift out to attack.  Their ability to move over all types of terrain
    allows them to position themselves at a distance before assaulting with bursts
    of Phazon energy.
    
    -----------
    Phazon Grub
    -----------
    
    Found:  Pirate Research - Scrapvault
    
    Phazon Grubs are drawn to bioenergy in all forms, especially Phazon.  They are
    immune to its mutagenic effects, and carry it in their bodies as they roam.
    Their bite can infect the victim with Phazon corruption, making them plague
    bearers of a sort.
    
    -------------
    Phazon Hopper
    -------------
    
    Found:  G.F.S. Valhalla - MedLab Alpha
    
    Phazon Hoppers are more resilient than other Hoppers, but can still be damaged
    by standard weaponry.  The crystallized Phazon covering their bodies provides
    additional protection from attack.  Like other Hoppers, these are capable of
    long-range assaults.  They will spit bursts of Phazon venom at prey from a
    distance.
    
    ------------
    Phazon Leech
    ------------
    
    Found:  Elysia Seed - Landing Site Charlie [Elysia Seed landing site]
    
    Phazon Leeches thrive on the bioenergy drained from weakened and dead prey.
    They often roam in groups, leaving behind toxic trails as they slide across
    terrain in search of sustenance.  Their bodies are soft and unprotected, making
    them easy targets to dispatch.
    
    --------------
    Phazon Metroid
    --------------
    
    Found:  Eastern SkyTown, Elysia - Xenoresearch B
    
    Like all Metroids, great cold can immobilize the Phazon Metroid and leave it
    vulnerable to attacks.  If the creature begins to feed, a concussive blast
    should be able to knock it away.  Heavy exposure to Phazon energy has mutated
    this strain of Tallon Metroid.  Subject can shift its body into a phased state,
    allowing it to ignore solid matter.  The creature can emit bursts of Phazon
    energy, and will drain the life energy from its prey.
    
    ----------------
    Phazon Nightbarb
    ----------------
    
    Found:  Bryyo - Gateway
    
    Phazon Nightbarbs have enhanced aerial mobility that makes them all but
    impossible to hit with normal shots.  The group will work together to create a
    powerful energy burst that they will fire at their prey.  Detonating the energy
    charge with normal attacks before it fires should destroy them.  Phazon
    Nightbarbs are the result of Nightbarbs being exposed to Phazon radiation.
    These mutations look similar to their uncorrupted counterparts, but are
    characterized by their greatly increased offensive and defensive capabilities.
    
    --------------
    Phazon Pillbug
    --------------
    
    Found:  Bryyo Fire - Gel Processing Site
    
    Pillbugs are commonly found in small spaces, often making traveling through
    tunnels troublesome.  Bombs are effective against them, however.  They are
    underground vermin, able to energize their hard-shelled bodies with Phazon.
    Once charged, they will roll into a defensive shape and charge their enemies.
    
    -------------
    Phazon Puffer
    -------------
    
    Found:  Phaaze - Cavern Beta Access
    
    This particular breed of Puffer has been heavily mutated by exposure to Phazon,
    giving it strange new abilities.  As it flies, it searches the area for Phazon
    energy to consume.  The Puffer will absorb this energy out of any nearby
    bioform and energize itself.  The Puffer will then use the energy to fire a
    powerful attack back at their target.  This ability comes with a price -- the
    Phazon energy comprising their body is rather unstable and easily disrupted by
    any type of weapon fire.
    
    ----------------
    Phazon Shriekbat
    ----------------
    
    Found:  G.F.S. Valhalla - Hangar A Access
    
    Even more aggressive than normal species, Phazon Shriekbats will not hesitate
    to attack any creature that wanders too close.  Their dive-bomb attack erupts
    in a burst of Phazon energy, which usually proves fatal to weaker organisms.
    These Shriekbats are mainly found in areas with high amounts of Phazon.
    Instead of the usual insects and small creatures Shriekbats usually feed on,
    these have come to rely on Phazon as a food source.
    
    ------------
    Red Phaazoid
    ------------
    
    Found:  SkyTown, Elysia - Construction Bay
    
    Red Phaazoids, like their more common siblings, can only be damaged by
    Phazon-based weaponry.  They are wildly aggressive and will split into smaller
    forms when attacked.  Their reddish appearance is the result of an unstable
    energy core, an uncommon mutation that occurs when a Phaazoid is formed.
    Overloading their core with Phazon energy will destroy them, causing them to
    yield a rare item.
    
    -----------
    Tangle Weed
    -----------
    
    Found:  Phaaze - Drop Shaft
    
    A simple form of plant life of which there are many species across many worlds.
    While each breed may have characteristics native to their respective ecology,
    they all possess identical behavior.  Tangle Weeds constantly sway their
    brightly colored leaves to attract potential prey to land on them.  The
    thousands of microscopic barbs lining the Tangle Weed's body will snare and
    inject a paralyzing toxin into their victim.  While small organisms are unable
    to escape, Tangle Weeds lack the strength to do anything more than hinder the
    movement of larger life-forms.  When attacked, they will retract into the
    ground until they no longer sense a threat.

    Phazon
    ------
    
    Found:  G.F.S. Olympus - MedLab Delta
    
    Phazon is a substance of extragalactic origin.  It is a highly radioactive ore
    with extreme mutagenic properties.  It has certain biological qualities,
    including the ability to reproduce itself.  Exposure to Phazon often affects
    the brains of sentient beings, causing erratic, destructive behavior.  It is
    also a potent source of energy, surpassing even Fuel Gel in pure output
    potential.  It must be handled carefully, as it can cause "Phazon sickness" if
    used incorrectly.
    
    -------------------------
    Phazon Enhancement Device
    -------------------------
    
    Found:  G.F.S. Olympus - MedLab Delta
    
    The Phazon Enhancement Device is designed to harness the energy of Phazon
    minerals, originally discovered on Aether, for a new Federation weapon system.
    It is being tested by a GF Marine battalion stationed in the Norion system.
    Marines can initiate an energy siphon from a supply of Phazon carried in a
    backpack into their armorsuits.  This allows them to temporarily enhance the
    exoskeletal and weapon systems of their armorsuits.  To date, no marines have
    displayed signs of "Phazon sickness."

    Planet Norion
    -------------
    
    Found:  Norion - Cargo Dock B
    
    Though located on the fringe of the Federation, the planet Norion is of great
    importance.  The military maintains a strong presence in the sector, and the
    base on Norion is often the first line of defense against enemies that operate
    outside of GF space.

    Planet Bryyo
    ------------
    
    Found:  Norion - Data Storage
    
    Federation scouts discovered the planet Bryyo ten years ago.  The planet's
    alignment makes most of its surface uninhabitable:  48% of the world is always
    exposed to the sun, with another 48% shrouded in permanent night.  The
    remaining 4% lies in an equatorial ring of fertile jungle, where the bulk of
    Bryyo's bioforms dwell.
    
    Fuel Gel is common on Bryyo, which makes it extremely important to the
    Federation.  The local bioforms are quite primitive, though there are ruins
    that indicate an advanced culture thrived on Bryyo in centuries past.

    SkyTown
    -------
    
    Found:  Norion - Data Storage
    
    SkyTown is a network of advanced structures floating in the atmosphere of
    planet Elysia.  Most of the base is dedicated to research, from a local to
    interstellar level.  The powerful sensors of SkyTown provide useful military
    intelligence data along with research information.  An Aurora Unit analyzes the
    vast amount of data collected by the station:  it is supported by the Elysians,
    a group of sentient mechanoids that live within the base.

    Hunter Rundas
    -------------
    
    Found:  Norion - Docking Hub Alpha
    
    Subject is a native of Phrygis, a moon of planet Bes III known primarily for
    ice mining.  The Phrygisian ability to manipulate and generate ice has come in
    handy in subject's career as a Bounty Hunter.  Intel suggests he enjoys
    hunting, to the point where he keeps trophies from all of the targets he's
    successfully captured or killed in his career.  Subject is proud, cocky, and
    arrogant, and considers himself without rivals in his field.
    
    -----------
    Hunter Ghor
    -----------
    
    Found:  Norion - Munitions Storage
    
    Subject is a veteran of the liberation war of Wotan VII.  Only 6% of subject's
    birth-body remains:  the rest is state-of-the-art cyberware.  Despite his
    career and heavy cybernetic modification, subject is known for his high level
    of empathy and compassion.  Ghor is rather gentle and approaches situations
    logically, but is not the most skilled of fighters.  Intel suggests he even has
    a sense of humor.  Subject has often championed the weak, poor, and
    downtrodden, working for free or giving bounty money earned to the victims of
    his targets.
    
    Subject can merge his cybernetic body into larger mechanisms, including
    gunships and fightercraft.  This merging will alter Ghor's personality, and he
    will become incredibly aggressive and violent.  Data indicates a high
    proficiency with computer infiltration and manipulation.  High level of
    mechanical empathy with artificial intelligence.
    
    ----------------
    Hunter Gandrayda
    ----------------
    
    Found:  Norion - Munitions Storage
    
    Subject homeworld unknown.  Possesses metamorphic ability similar to the
    biomorphs of Jovia XII.  Can assume the form and abilities of most living
    things, including bioforms considerably larger than the subject.
    
    Scans are unable to determine subject's age, but psych eval suggests a high
    degree of youthfulness. Intel suggests that bounty hunting is akin to a sport
    for her, one she enjoys considerably.  Subject perceives the veteran Hunter
    Samus Aran as her chief rival, a rival she intends to surpass as soon as
    possible.
    
    ------------------------
    Olympus-Class Battleship
    ------------------------
    
    Found:  G.F.S. Olympus - Security Station
    
    The Olympus-class battleship is the first Federation capital ship designed to
    use an onboard Aurora Unit.  They are the flagships of the fleets they serve
    in, usually commanded by an officer of flag rank.  Battleships of this class
    have smaller crews than most ships of a similar size due to the presence of the
    Aurora Unit.  The space saved in crew support is used for more battle systems.
    The enormous vessels are powered by Fuel Gel, making the scarce commodity of
    extreme value to the Federation military.

    Tallon IV Incident
    ------------------
    
    Found:  G.F.S. Valhalla - Stairwell
    
    Planet Tallon IV, formerly a Chozo colony, was struck by a stellar object 50
    years ago.  Object was later determined to contain large quantities of Phazon.
    The Chozo were able to stave off the spread of Phazon, at the cost of many
    Chozo lives.  The survivors abandoned the planet, fleeing to an unknown
    location.  Decades later, Hunter Samus Aran responded to a distress call in the
    sector and discovered a Space Pirate Phazon mining station there.  Aran
    eliminated both the pirate and Phazon threat from the planet, though not
    without cost.
    
    -----------------
    Valhalla Incident
    -----------------
    
    Found:  Norion - Munitions Storage
    
    The G.F.S. Valhalla was on a training mission after receiving new crew at
    Tivus.  We believe the Valhalla was ambushed en route to the training base by a
    fleet of pirate vessels.  Data suggests the pirates were using upgraded
    starships powered by Phazon:  that plus superior numbers were more than the
    Valhalla could handle.  Current whereabouts of the Valhalla are unknown:  she
    is presumed destroyed in action.
    
    --------------
    Anhur Incident
    --------------
    
    Found:  G.F.S. Valhalla - Control Room
    
    Planet Aether, home of the Luminoth, was struck by a "Phazon Meteor" five
    decades ago.  The impact had catastrophic effects on the already unstable
    planet, creating a "dark twin" of the planet and a dire race known as the Ing.
    A brutal war between the twin planets took place, with the Ing gaining the
    upper hand.  The G.F.S. Tyr went to the sector to investigate pirate activity,
    but were forced to make an emergency landing on Aether.  Shortly after, the
    entire crew of Tyr was attacked and annihilated by the Ing.  Hunter Samus Aran
    was sent to investigate, and wound up entangled in the local conflict.  Aran
    fought against both Space Pirates and Ing, and arose victorious.  Aether's
    "dark twin" vanished, taking with it the Ing horde, and the planet's peace was
    finally restored.
    
    After the Aether Incident, the Federation sent the G.F.S. Anhur back to Aether
    to deal with the pirate base.  Upon arrival, the crew and marines of the Anhur
    assisted the native Luminoth in dismantling an abandoned Space Pirate mining
    facility.  During the operation, the crew detected the presence of Phazon.  The
    ship's crew investigated and collected several kilograms of ore, which would
    later lead to the development of the PED.

    Look now to the past, and to the time of peace on Bryyo.  See the age of gold,
    when our world was a paradise unrivaled.  Hear the songs of joy fill the
    streets of the Royal City, as the people honor the coming of Bryyus the First,
    the Liberator.  Behold the launch of our first ship to the stars on that day,

    The ships of Bryyo sped to the stars, in all directions, bearing the banner of
    peace.  Soon we found stellar brethren in the Chozo, the Luminoth, and the
    Ylla.  Starborne knowledge came to Bryyo, and we gladly sent our wisdom to our
    new friends in return.  The hearts of Bryyo were filled with pride, and they
    honored the Lords of Science for all the wonders we provided.  As the time of
    New Bryyo came to be, the old ways faded.  The cries of joy from those who
    honored Science covered the angry shouts of those who mourned the old ways, the
    Primal Traditions.

    In time, the wonders of Science were not enough for those who held the Primal
    Traditions in their hearts.  The warnings of the Chozo -- to seek balance
    between old and new ways -- were not heeded by the Lords of Science, myself
    included.  We forged on, ignorant of the rage in the hearts of the Primals.
    The time came when Sfimas, First Lord of Science, denounced the Primals and
    their Traditions in the center of the Royal City.  It was as flame to a dry
    forest.  The Age of Science ended, and the Age of Schism was born.

    In the beginning, the conflicts were small, out of sight for most on Bryyo.
    But they grew, slowly but as steady as the coming of the sun.  Diplomacy gave
    way to brutality, and war came to our world.  The Lords of Science turned their
    minds from exploration to destruction, and unleashed horrors unknown upon their
    Primal enemies.  In retaliation, the Primals turned to the darkest of ancient
    powers, cursing us, the Science Lords, and all who served our cause.  Friends
    from the stars tried desperately to end the conflict, all in vain.  The people
    of war would not be denied.

    Look now to the time of battle, tribe against tribe.  See fertile land swept
    clean of all living things by arcane nightmares or the hellish blasts of
    Science.  See the giant stone Mogenars do battle, destroying the land with
    their titanic blows.  And hear the undying scream of a planet wracked by
    darkest war.  The battles waged endlessly, and the resources needed to sustain
    our war machines were great.  Bryyo too had become a casualty of the war:  the
    air was filled with the smoke of battle and the soil soaked with the toxins of
    pollution.  Calamity after calamity visited the folk of Bryyo, until a world
    once known for wonders became a scarred husk under the stars.  Only a small
    region remained habitable, and to it the survivors went, bringing the war with
    them.

    We, the Lords of Science, mishandled the use of our knowledge.  The devastation
    of the war robbed us of the rare resources necessary to fuel our war engines.
    Without our machines we were unable to stand up to the Primal armies, and they
    overran the enclaves of many Science Lords.  What few remained fled into dark
    places, polluted wastelands even the bravest of Primal warriors would not dare
    enter.  Whatever joy there may have been amongst the victorious was quickly
    stamped out by the grim reality surrounding them.  Bryyo, their cradle, their
    sacred home...  was on the verge of death.

    Found:  Bryyo - Burrow
    
    As the followers of the Primal Traditions celebrated their victory, a number of
    surviving Science Lords gathered in a hidden sanctuary.  It was there that our
    foolishness became obvious, and we regretted ignoring the Chozo's warning.  We
    realized the folly of following the ways of Science with blind faith -- and the
    peril of all Bryyo.  The contamination left from the battles was spreading, and
    would soon scour the remaining fertile lands, leaving naught but ash.  It left
    unaided, Bryyo would lose what few safe lands and water remained.  Once more,
    our great minds turned to a grand task...  planetary salvation.  As our enemies
    searched the lands for us, the last Lords of Science, we created our final
    machines and launched them into the heavens.

    The great machines of the Science Lords performed flawlessly.  They absorbed
    the toxins and pollution in the air and soil, preserving the remaining fertile
    land of Bryyo.  Yet the planet's climate was forever changed, leaving one side
    eternally scorched by the sun, the other forever in the icy grasp of darkness.
    
    The launch of the machines revealed the hidden enclave of the Science Lords to
    their former enemies.  The bright lights in the skies caused by the
    decontamination equipment stirred old hatred in the hearts of the Primals.
    Fearing a new attack, the Primals sent their warriors forth to hunt their hated
    foes.  We were now marked for death.

    The Primals crafted new magics to protect their warriors, and sent them into
    the burning wastelands to hunt the Lords of Science hiding there.  Though we
    tried to avoid conflict, many Science Lords were found and ended by Primal war
    bands.
    
    I was but the sole survivor, the last remaining Lord of Science.  In order to
    protect myself, I adopted the wisdom once shared by the Chozo.  I merged the
    ways of the new -- Science -- with the ways of the old -- Magic.  I built
    mighty Mogenars out of stone, and placed them outside the walls of my home,
    there to silently protect me from all enemies.

    Forgotten in exile, a creature of myth, I, the last Lord of Science, worked
    tirelessly to protect myself and this world.  I crafted magics and machines to
    bring life back to the wastelands.  I found a new source of natural energy in
    the land and called it Fuel Gel.  I vowed to atone for the devastation
    inflicted upon Bryyo, caused by both science and war.
    
    Yet, while I toiled, the Primals slipped slowly into barbarism.  With no
    Science Lords to hunt, they turned on each other, tribe against tribe.  Magic
    was lost to them, and they became as savage as the predator beasts of the wild.

    As time slowly passed, I grew old:  even the combined power of magic and
    science couldn't cheat death forever.  In order to preserve Bryyo's
    environment, I would need a successor.  Finding one was a daunting task, for
    most of the folk saw me as a monster.  Time passed quickly as I searched, and
    my efforts appeared to be in vain.  Seemingly by chance, I found a young Primal
    wandering the wastelands and rescued her.  But this was not a chance encounter.
    She was a prophetess, tirelessly searching for the last Lord of Science to
    speak to about her visions.  In her dreams she saw a starborne death coming to
    Bryyo, and with her vision came a plea to save her world.  Based on her
    information, I began work on improving the existing decontamination equipment
    to help prepare a defense for Bryyo against the eventual catastrophe.

    Sadly, disaster came to use before we could finish our work.  An accident
    caused our supply of Fuel Gel to explode, sending fire to the sky and exposing
    our position.  It was not long before a Primal war band saw the great fire, and
    rushed to attack.  Without a way to power my great Mogenars, I had no way to
    defend myself from their assault.
    
    Fleeing would only drive them to pursue us to no end, and they would show no
    mercy to either one of us once caught.  I had no other choice except to stand
    my ground while the prophetess fled to safety.  With her I sent my records of
    the past, in hopes they would both find sanctuary.
    
    You now read my last words, etched in stone and placed by the prophetess.  We
    speak to you from beyond the grave, to plead with you...  Save our world from
    the starborne plague.  Lift the veil of hate from the eyes of our people.  May
    our remaining relics serve you well in this struggle.

    I am Elysian, descendent of both the Chozo and the First.  I am facing the last
    moments of my life and transferring my memory to the data pod.
    
    In a way, our chronicle begins nearly 1500 years ago.  That was when our noble
    creators, the Chozo, began to build that which would become our home.  A place
    of exploration and knowledge, floating in the clouds of planet Elysia, a
    fitting home for its great Chozo builders.  They built many linked, hovering
    pods:  in time they formed a net in the skies across the globe, instruments
    peering out in all directions, studying the cosmos.
    
    We did not exist then:  only the Chozo walked these hallowed halls.  To the
    distant stars they looked, and a great many things they discovered -- including
    that which would later spell grim disaster for all.

    Several decades passed for the Chozo here at Elysia.  The harsh winds and
    storms began to take their toll on the station, and upkeep began to take up
    more and more of their precious time.  Seeing a need for assistance, they
    created us.  The first Elysian, built by Chozo hands, stepped out of the
    mechanicreche 1,450.82 years ago.  Crude by our current standards, the First
    was soon given the greatest gift of all by the Chozo.  To better assist the
    creators, the First was given self-awareness.  To all other Elysians, the First
    shared the Chozo gift.  This event marks year One of the Elysian reckoning.

    Found:  SkyTown, Elysia - Barracks Lift
    
    The Chozo were watchers, studying the depths of space tirelessly to quench
    their thirst for knowledge.  From this facility they launched observation
    satellites, firing them into the heavens toward distant worlds.  These
    satellites returned information that allowed them to analyze the various
    phenomenon occurring across the cosmos.  Through this process they were able to
    satisfy their intellectual appetite, one planet at a time.
    
    One day, a Chozo Searcher happened upon a very rare discovery.  A
    once-thought-lost satellite delivered information on a distant world.  It was
    incredibly far away, even by Chozo reckoning.  Study of the stellar object
    revealed that it was, in may ways, a planet -- and yet also sentient.  Alive.
    This chance event was brief, and the information being collected was lost
    before the true identity of the planet was revealed.

    In the year 400 of Elysian reckoning, the time for our Chozo creators to leave
    had arrived.  To us they entrusted the station and its purpose.  We were to
    stand vigil and watch over the station until the time when others seeking
    knowledge and enlightenment arrived.  With their departure came one last
    request from the Chozo Searcher -- to continue exploring the skies for the
    answers to the mysterious planet.  We gave her our word and resumed her
    tireless search.  Day after day we hunted for the answers she desperately
    sought, but our efforts yielded nothing.  We failed.

    By the year 600, we of Elysia were low on critical supplies and fuel.  We
    created smaller mechanoids to process fuel from the atmosphere of Elysia, but
    they proved unable to produce a sufficient supply.  Unable to secure the
    necessary resources to sustain ourselves, we entered a state of hibernation to
    preserve our remaining stores of energy and parts.  While we slumbered, the
    data collected by the station's equipment was fed to us in dreams.
    
    During this long period of sleep, we had many dreams.  Countless great events
    came to us, including a reuninion with our creators, who had come to call a new
    planet their home.  It was not long before disaster struck.  A stellar object
    hit planet Tallon IV, bringing with it a catastrophic corruption that sent the
    Chozo world into chaos.  We watched helplessly as our creators perished, the
    few survivors fleeing to an unknown location.  Powerless, we slept, and in our
    dreams we lamented the deaths of our creators.  This was our final vision,
    after which we were never able to see our creators again.

    Time passed slowly as we suffered through our bad dreams.  We endured their
    visions until finally, in year 1435, our automated defense systems were
    triggered.  A number of aliens, well armed and armored, had penetrated our
    battle screens and entered Elysia Station.  Per protocol, we were revived from
    stasis to defend our home.  As we mustered for battle, the aliens communicated
    with us and declared themselves to be under the banner of peace.  A truce was
    called, and soon we began negotiations with the Galactic Federation.  The
    Treaty of Elysia began a new era of prosperity for us.

    The treaty brought us new supplies, fuel, and parts from the Federation.  In
    return, we allowed them to use Elysia Station as they saw fit.  They were glad
    to use the station's powerful scientific systems, and gleaned a great deal of
    knowledge from our data banks.  Unfortunately, the harsh atmosphere of our
    world was dangerous for the Federation researchers.  They propsed to replace
    the humanoids with a single artificial intelligence unit, which they called
    Aurora.

    Aurora was placed within one of our floating pods and connected into the
    station's network.  This connection allowed Aurora to control not only the
    facility, but us as well.  Our link allowed us to reap the benefits of the
    Aurora's own connection to the Federation's Aurora network.  The units were
    capable of communicating with one another regardless of the distance, and vast
    amounts of information were passed down to us.
    
    As the years went by we aided the Aurora and our Federation allies in their
    research.  We studied potential enemy threats and collected data on their
    activities.  It was, in some small way, a means to atone for our inability to
    help our creators years ago.  Through our alliance with the Federation we were
    able to prevent many disasters, and bring an end to numerous threats in the
    cosmos.  We are not certain if that was what our creators would have wished to
    happen, but it was certainly a peaceful life.

    It was approximately five months ago that our systems detected a meteor-like
    object collide with a planet in a nearby galaxy.  The impact was followed by a
    spreading corruption, identical to the one we saw devour our creators' planet.
    More so than ever, we were determined to aid the Aurora and discover the source
    of these objects.  Months passed before we could uncover its origin -- it had
    come through a wormhole from an incredibly distant planet.  We studied this
    link between the tear in space and the location it was connected to.  As we
    delved deeper it became clear to us that this was the mysterious planet the
    Chozo Searcher had been seeking.  The living planet was aggressively attacking
    other worlds, hurtling parts of itself across the cosmos like missiles.  We had
    finally discovered the source of these corrupted meteors.
    
    It was about one month ago that we made our revelation, but all attempts at
    transmitting the critical data to the Federation were unsuccessful.  It
    appeared that the Aurora Unit had become disabled.  We tried desperately to
    restore the Aurora, but it had been corrupted by an unknown virus.  Our only
    means of communication with the Federation were severed.

    One week after we had lost communication with the Aurora Unit, we witnessed the
    living planet strike again.  It sent forth several stellar objects, one aimed
    directly for us.  It streaked through the clouds of Elysia, destroying a large
    portion of our home, ultimately striking the distant core below.  Soon our
    sensors detected the presence of strange energy.  Our readings matched with the
    Federation's data -- this was the same toxin that corrupted countless other
    planets and our creators' world -- the galactic scourge called Phazon.

    We watched as Elysia fell victim to the meteor's corruption, its Phazon
    beginning to consume her.  High above the noxious surface, we continued to
    collect data on the object.  It was not long before we met a new enemy.  Space
    Pirates, hostile alien life-forms and sworn enemies of the Federation, entered
    the station and attacked.
    
    The pirate forces struck swiftly, their numbers and weapons dwarfing our own.
    After their initial assault, they began construction of a massive energy shield
    around the meteor.  They referred to the fallen object as a "Seed" and quickly
    built the protective barrier.  Any resistance they met from us was crushed, and
    the massive shield was built without interruption.
    
    Our attention then turned to the pirates themselves.  If we could not stop them
    through combat, perhaps there was another way.  Our studies quickly yielded
    unexpected results.  All of the Space Pirates were corrupted with Phazon, but
    unlike other life-forms, they were actually being sustained by it.  This Phazon
    kept them alive, and it appeared to control their minds with a will of its own.

    The two weeks following the Seed's impact were disastrous.  Like the Aurora
    Unit, we too were infected with a Phazon-based virus.  The spreading corruption
    consumed many of us, putting us under Space Pirate control.  It was not long
    before only a handful of us remained.
    
    During this time there was but a moment that we received aid.  Ghor, the Hunter
    dispatched by the Federation, arrived here to restore the Aurora Unit.  Our
    hope quickly vanished as he too was corrupted by Phazon and lost his own will.
    He now leads the assault on the remaining survivors, taking more and more of
    the station over with each passing day.
    
    There is no hope left for us.  Soon, we too will be among the enemy forces.
    The last of us now stand before the brink of our history's end, silently
    waiting out our final hours.

    When she returned, it was on the back of a titanic starborne beast!  As we

    Dark Samus required a mighty flagship, one to strike terror in the hearts of
    her enemies.  The might of Colossus was not enough.  She demanded more!  Her
    solution was unique and most excellent.

    Bribes led us to the location of our prize:  the battleship Valhalla.  Crewed
    with green recruits on a training mission, she was ours for the taking.  One of
    the mightiest ships in the cosmos was no match for the Phazon-powered weapons
    of the Colossus.  We rendered Valhalla helpless, then sent raiders to claim our
    prize.  The Aurora was ours!
    
    There was to be no mercy for the Federation dogs.  At the command of Dark

    allies in battle.  If they aren't dead, they'll soon wish they were.  Each of
    them bears her mark of corruption.  Soon they, like we disciples, will bow to
    her will.

    Bryyo Falls
    -----------
    
    Found:  Pirate Mines - Phazon Mine Entry
    
    Command has received disturbing reports from Bryyo.  Contact with our outpost
    there has been terminated.  A coded brook bliptrans showing Commander Rundas
    falling in battle to Samus has arrived.  Worst of all, the Bryyonian Seed has
    been demolished.  The Hunter's might is great, and she is as efficient as ever
    when it comes to distrupting our operations.
    
    Our spies within the Federation tell us she travels to Elysia soon.  We plan on
    having an appropriate welcoming party in place for her when she arrives.
    Commander Ghor is a very...  accommodating host.
    
    ------------------
    Disaster at Elysia
    ------------------
    
    Found:  Pirate Command - Command Courtyard
    
    The march of the Hunter continues, much to our dismay.  She has smashed our
    line at Elysia, taking down Commander Ghor in the process.  The accursed
    Elysian machines were no match for Aran's guns, and now the Federation has
    control of their spy station once again.
    
    It is only a matter of time before they find the location of the Phazon source
    and send their fleets to lay siege.  Our great leader does not seem to mind
    these set backs.  If samus comes to our Homeworld, she will find us ready.
    
    ------------------
    Mistress Gandrayda
    ------------------
    
    Found:  Pirate Command - Transit Tunnel P70
    
    Mistress Gandrayda is the last of our leader's field commanders.  We hope that
    she will succeed where the others have not.  We hope that she will slay the
    wretched Hunter!
    
    Gandrayda tests our mettle often.  She moves among us in our form, watching us,
    looking for signs of weakness.  Several unfaithful disciples have been ended...
    violently.  Those who survive will be stronger, ready for the Hunter that comes
    for them from the void.  Gandrayda has vowed to present Aran's bloody helmet to
    Dark Samus as tribute.  We hope she fulfills that vow!

    Their high power-to-energy ratio makes them ideal for powering a wide variety
    of equipment.
    
    Throughout the environment you may encounter stations that contain an Energy
    Cell.  Removing the cell will leave these stations permanently offline.  You
    will then be able to place the collected Energy Cell into a new station that is
    empty.
    
    Your collected and used Energy Cells are recorded in your Logbook.

    Fuel Gel
    --------
    
    Found:  Bryyo Fire - Fiery Airdock
    
    Fuel Gel is used to power most modern starships in the cosmos.  It is extremely
    rare, and worlds that produce it tend to be quite prosperous.  The exception to
    this is planet Bryyo, a Federation protectorate -- and the largest supplier of
    Fuel Gel.  Proceeds from Bryyonian gel sales go directly to the Federation
    military forces protecting that sector of space.
    
    The sheer value of Fuel Gel is very attractive, and has led to an uprise in
    piracy over the last 20 years.  Today, raids on gel transport convoys are
    common, especially in frontier regions of space.  The Galactic Federation has
    increased antipiracy operations, and planets with Fuel Gel resources are
    protected by Federation fleets and ground forces.

    Mounted Blast Shield
    --------------------
    
    Found:  Norion - Hub Access
    
    Mounted Blast Shields are unique in that they often have a primary locking
    system.  These systems commonly come in the form of multiple release locks that
    must be hit in a sequential order.  Once this locking system is disengaged the
    shield can be removed.  Weapon fire is insufficent to damage the shield, but it
    can easily be torn off with a strong pull.

    origin.  Tallon IV's scar, the result of a celestial body impacting the
    planet's surface decades ago, is still visible.  Satellite scans are unable to
    determine the extent of the original damage, but the planet appears to have
    recovered from any negative effects of the object's impact.
