Dasha Region

The Dasha region or Dasha system is a region of space located in the periphery of Galactic Federation space. [1] The region houses the rogue planet Aether, where the events of Metroid Prime 2: Echoes take place.

Despite being a rogue planet, Aether is mentioned being a part of the "Dasha System" in the Space Pirate Logs [1] as well as in the logs left by GFMC Task Force Herakles. [2] It is unclear whether this is a mistake in the game's script or not. The game offers no further evidence of a planetary system and also refers to Aether as a rogue planet.[3]. Rogue planets are planets located outside solar systems.


  1. 1.0 1.1 "Science teams have discovered the presence of Phazon in the Dasha system four cycles ago. High command authorized the deployment of our team shortly thereafter. Our orders are to establish a base on planet Aether and evaluate local Phazon resources. Because this world lies on the periphery of Galactic Federation territory, we are following stealth protocols at the highest level. A cadre of elite commandos has been dispatched to provide security for our force as well. This operation is now under way." —Space Pirate Logs: Log 04.468.1 (Metroid Prime 2: Echoes)
