Aurora Unit 486
Aurora Unit 486 is a Galactic Federation Aurora Unit that shares similarities with another of its kind, 242. The Unit is never seen in-game, but is mentioned in Galactic Federation Data. 486 helped bring Planet Norion from an inhabitable wasteland to a thriving forest world.
- "Though located on the fringe of the Federation, the planet Norion is of great importance. The military maintains a strong presence in this sector, and the base on Norion is often the first line of defense against enemies that operate outside of GF space.
Originally a barren orb incapable of sustaining life, a sophisticated terraforming project designed by Aurora Unit 486 has turned Norion into a hardy forest world." —Metroid Prime 3: Corruption Logbook "Planet Norion" (Metroid Prime 3: Corruption)
