ZDR is a planet and the location of the game Metroid Dread. Seven Extraplanetary Multiform Mobile Identifiers (or E.M.M.I.) were sent to investigate a mysterious transmission sent to the Galactic Federation showing a living X Parasite.
History[edit | edit source]
After receiving a video transmission of a living X Parasite, 7 E.M.M.I. were sent to the planet. Soon, all communication was lost with the E.M.M.I. so the Galactic Federation sent Samus Aran to ZDR. Samus landed on the surface in her Gunship. After fighting Raven Beak and losing, Samus traveled throughout ZDR to get back to the surface. After fighting Raven Beak once again, Samus defeated him. She then escaped to her Gunship and flew away from the planet as it exploded, seemingly wiping out the X. After that she then gets a unknown signal that shows a unknown creature that has damaged a space station orbiting a planet. Samus is once again sent to investigate this unknown creature.
