Connected Rooms


The Biotech Research Area 2 is a room on the Frigate Orpheon. It was used for experimentation by Space Pirates on geoform 187. When Samus enters the room while evacuating the damaged frigate, Meta Ridley escapes his restraints and flees the area.

Samus must use the Grapple Beam to get across the room, as the exit is on a raised ledge that cannot be reached from the ground level.
