Desolate Frigate Orpheon

The Emergency Evacuation Area is a room on the Frigate Orpheon. Samus first enters it through Deck Alpha Access Hall and later exits it into Deck Alpha Umbilical Hall.


The room is largely taken up by the carcass of a dead Parasite Queen, but Samus can still get around it. The dead Parasite Queen's mouth is on fire while she is in the room, and the flames can damage Samus if she contacts them directly. A number of normal Parasites can also be found here, feeding on the remains of two of the three dead Space Pirates, one of which is still impaled by the Queen's leg. There is one Pirate that is still alive, although gravely injured. It will attempt to fire at Samus, but she can defeat it with ease.

The room was used by Space Pirates as a point to rally and escape in the event of an evacuation. During the emergency on Frigate Orpheon that brought Samus to Tallon IV,[1] some Pirates managed to escape by entering escape pods and jettisoning them some 6 hours prior to her arrival. Three escape pods were reported as launched, with a Space Pirate base on Tallon IV as the destination.

This room is also the first place Samus encounters the mutagenic substance Phazon. There are several biohazard containers full of Phazon ready to be shipped to different areas of the frigate, the scans of which are the first mention of the substance by name.
