 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                         === Space Pirate Frigate ===
-----------------------
Exterior Docking Hangar
-----------------------

See the four red circles around the force field blocking your path?  Shoot each
one, and the force field will drop.  Walk past it, then activate your Scan
Visor (left on your control pad) and scan the panel on the pillar thing to the
right.  Some additional red lights will be activated on the next force field,
so shoot all six of them to drop it.  Follow the path to the blue door, shoot
it, and head through.

There's nothing of much interest in this corridor, so simply run to the other
end and go through the next blue door.

--------
Air Lock
--------

Scan the panel to the left, then shoot the door in front of you and go through.

----------------------
Deck Alpha Access Hall
----------------------

Nothing going on here, just head through the next door.

-------------------------
Emergency Evacuation Area
-------------------------

LOG:  Parasite

Scan the small enemy on the floor in the lower area for a Log entry, then take
your time to scan everything else in the room if you'd like.  Eventually, you
will need to head to the other side of the room and go through the next blue
door.

-------------------------
Deck Alpha Umbilical Hall
-------------------------

Charge your Power Beam by holding the A button down for a while, then use the
charged shot to destroy the debris in the middle of the corridor.  Continue
through the door on the other side.

------------
Map Facility
------------

LOG:  Map Station

See where the parasites crawl through the tunnel?  Head there and use your X
button to enter morph ball mode.  Stand up when you've rolled through the
tunnel and scan the map station there for a Log entry.  Step into the hologram
to get the map, then roll back through the tunnel and go out the door on the
right.

--------------------------------
Connection Elevator to Deck Beta
--------------------------------

Scan the panel at the back of the room to activate the elevator hologram, then
step into the hologram to take the elevator down.  Head through the blue door
there.

----------------------
Deck Beta Conduit Hall
----------------------

Enter morph ball mode and roll under the blockage in the middle of the corridor
on your way to the blue door at the other end.

-----------------------
Biotech Research Area 1
-----------------------

LOG:  Small Energy

Some Space Pirates are stumbling around in here, so take them out (they may or
may not drop energy - scan it for a Log entry if they do, but you'll be able to
do it pretty much any time in the future).  Scan the stuff along the walls if
you'd like, then head out the next door.

-----------------------
Deck Beta Security Hall
-----------------------

LOG:  Auto Turret
LOG:  Missile Ammo

When you turn the corner to the left, scan the turret on the ceiling for a log
entry, then destroy it with a missile (use your Y button to fire one).  If the
turret drops some missile ammunition when you destroy it, scan it for a Log
entry.  If not, don't worry about it - you'll be able to get it pretty much any
time in the future.  Head through the door when you're ready.

---------------------
Biohazard Containment
---------------------

LOG:  Fall of Zebes

Scan the consoles near the entrance for a Log entry, then work your way over to
the elevator on the other side of the room.  Activate it by scanning the panel
on the nearby wall, then ride it to the upper level.  Work your way around here
to the door at the other end.

----------------------
Deck Beta Transit Hall
----------------------

Nothing much here, just head through to the other side.

--------------------------------
Cargo Freight Lift to Deck Gamma
--------------------------------

Take out the turret, then scan the panel on the outside of the lift to open the
door.  Step onto the hologram and ride the lift to the bottom, then take out
the Space Pirate.  Scan the panel on the right, then enter morph ball mode and
roll onto the spherical hologram to open the next door.

---------------------
Reactor Core Entrance
---------------------

LOG:  Save Station

Take out the turrets, then shoot the door on the left and go inside.  Scan the
save station here for a Log entry, then step into it to save your game.  Return
to the main part of the room and scan the red panel, then roll onto the
spherical hologram to open the next big door.

------------
Reactor Core
------------

LOG:  Parasite Queen

Scan the large creature for a log entry, then lock onto it with your L button.
Pound the creature with your power beam through the gaps in the blue force
field until it dies, then be ready to escape from the facility.  After the
Parasite Queen dies, you'll be facing the next blue door that you want to go
through.

-----------------------
Deck Gamma Monitor Hall
-----------------------

Nothing of interest in here, just work your way straight through to the door at
the other end.

--------------------------------
Connection Elevator to Deck Beta
--------------------------------

Scan the panel in front of you to activate the elevator, then step on the
hologram to ride it up.  Scan the panel in front of you when the elevator stops
to disable the defense turret, then head out the door.

-----------------------
Biotech Research Area 1
-----------------------

Take a left and head for the wall behind the giant specimen case.  Climb the
broken chunks of flooring to get to the upper area, eliminate the space pirates
up there, and take a right to the far end of this room.  A panel will blow off
of the wall, making an open spot for you to jump into.

------------------------------
Subventilation Shaft Section A
------------------------------

Not much going on here, you just have to work your way through the shafts to
the door on the opposite end.  The parasites aren't much of a threat, so just
walk right through them if you want.

------------------------------
Subventilation Shaft Section B
------------------------------

More of the same here, just run through the shafts until you pop through the
next set of doors.

--------------------------------
Cargo Freight Lift to Deck Gamma
--------------------------------

You'll barely even know you're in this room, all you have to do is walk up to
the door to make it blast free, then head through.

--------------------------------
Main Ventilation Shaft Section A
--------------------------------

Even more of the same...  just head through the shafts until you find the next
exit.

--------------------------------
Main Ventilation Shaft Section B
--------------------------------

Head up the shaft and take out the turrets by the door, then head through it.

--------------------------------
Main Ventilation Shaft Section C
--------------------------------

...more pointless shafts.  Just run through to the next door.

--------------------------------
Main Ventilation Shaft Section D
--------------------------------

Same thing, just head through until you reach the next door.

--------------------------------
Main Ventilation Shaft Section E
--------------------------------

Ooh, something different!  A giant piston thing is moving in here, but it can't
hurt you.  As it moves to the left, walk right behind it.  There's a tunnel to
the right near the end of the hallway with a door in it, so head through there.

--------------------------------
Main Ventilation Shaft Section F
--------------------------------

Nothing at all here, just run through the door to the other side.

-----------------------
Biotech Research Area 2
-----------------------

Wait for the cutscene to finish, then look up at the middle of the room to see
some grappling points.  Target the closest one, then use your L button to grab
it.  When you swing towards the next one, let go of the L button and quickly
repress it to target the second one.  Let go of the L button when you're
swinging towards the ledge, and Samus should land on it.  Scan the two nearby
terminals if you'd like, then head through the door.

---------------------------------
Connection Elevator to Deck Alpha
---------------------------------

Scan the terminal to disable the turret, then head for the elevator.  Scan the
panel in front of it to make the hologram appear, then step on the hologram to
ride the elevator up.

---------------------
Deck Alpha Mech Shaft
---------------------

Look for the narrow hallway when the elevator stops and move your way through
it until you reach the airlock.

-------
Airlock
-------

Take a left and get next to the door.  Once the room depressurizes, shoot the
door and head through.

-----------------------
Exterior Docking Hangar
-----------------------

Samus will take care of the rest once you walk through the door at the end of
the long hallway.

------------
Landing Site
------------

LOG:  Gunship
LOG:  Tangle Weed

Jump down from your ship and scan it for a Log entry, then check out the area
behind it to find some Tangle Weed, which you can scan for another Log entry.
There's not a whole lot else for you to do here right now, so head for the low
door near your ship.

-------------
Canyon Cavern
-------------

LOG:  Beetle

Scan one of the enemies that come out of the ground, then slaughter them.  Look
around for a small hallway and head through the door at the end of it.

-------------
Tallon Canyon
-------------

LOG:  Sap Sac
LOG:  Blastcap
LOG:  Zoomer
LOG:  Geemer
LOG:  Large Energy

Take a look to your left as soon as you enter the area and scan the orange
thing for a Log entry, then move into the middle of the room.  Scan various
other things to collect three more Log entries, then move towards the blue door
on the lowest level (you can reach a higher door, but it won't lead anywhere
useful yet).  If you manage to get an enemy to drop a Large Energy unit, you
can get a Log entry for it.  If you don't, don't worry about it - you'll have
plenty of other opportunities later.

------------------
Transport Tunnel A
------------------

Nothing much going on here.  You should've already scanned everything in here
already, so just head through the door at the other end of the room.

-----------------------------
Transport to Chozo Ruins West
-----------------------------

Scan the terminal to the right of the elevator platform to activate it, then
step onto the hologram to ride it up to the Chozo Ruins.

                              === Chozo Ruins ===
-----------------------------------
Transport to Tallon Overworld North
-----------------------------------

Nothing going on here...  scan the terminal to activate the elevator if you'd
like, but otherwise, just head out the door.

Take care of the beetles on the ground, then scan the weird distortion thing
above the next blue door for a Log entry before you head through it.

----------
Main Plaza
----------

LOG:  Missile Door Lock
LOG:  Hive

Scan the blast shield on the door to the left for a Log entry after you've
dealt with the beetles, then look higher up in the room to scan one of the
hives on the walls for another Log entry.  Head towards the far end of the room
and go through the lower blue door there when you're ready.

--------------
Nursery Access
--------------

LOG:  Scarab

Scan the small enemies for a Log entry, then head through the door on the other
side of the room.

-----------

carefully work your way through this hallway while dodging the beams from the
eye things.

--------------
Ruined Nursery
--------------

LOG:  Exodus
LOG:  War Wasp

Scan the distorted section of the wall for a new Log entry, then fend off the
beetles.  Climb the ledges on the long side of the room to get to the upper
area, then scan one of the wasps that come out of the hives for a Log entry.
Make your way to the second blue door up here.

--------------
Save Station 1
--------------

Step into the save station and save your game if you'd like, then return to the
previous room.

--------------
Ruined Nursery

reach the door on the other side.

the door on the other end of the room.

----------
Hive Totem
----------

LOG:  Ram War Wasp
LOG:  Hive Mecha

ITEM:  Missile Launcher

Head for the central platform to start your first "boss fight," or at least
what's supposed to be considered a boss fight at this point in the game...
basically, you just need to kill all of the wasps that are on your screen, then
focus your attack on the Chozo heads on the casing that's protecting your
Missile Launcher.  Don't forget to scan one of the wasps and the portion of the
machine that's underwater for two Log entries.

Once you've neutralized all of the heads, the casing will retract, and you'll
be able to grab the launcher.  Use a missile on the blast shield on the door in
front of you (press the Y button to fire a missile), then head through the
door.

 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

ENERGY TANK:  Just sitting in the middle of the room for you to grab.

Take the energy tank, then head back out the door.  You won't be able to go
through the tunnel in here yet, so ignore it for now.

----------

Nothing going on here, just head over the bridge and make your way to the other
door.

------------

Fight your way through here to the door on the other side.

--------------

MISSILE:  Use a missile to smash the weak wall in the lower area.

Take care of the War Wasps, then drop down to the lower level.  See the weak
spot in the wall below the door leading to Totem Access?  Hit it with a missile
to destroy it, then grab the missile expansion inside the alcove.  Head over to
the lower door on the other side now, destroy the blast shield with a missile,
and head through it.

-----------
Map Station
-----------

Step onto the map station platform to download a map of this area, then return
to the previous room.

through.

--------------------

--------------------

Nothing but Scarabs...  hose them down on your way to the other side.

-------------
Ruined Shrine
-------------

LOG:  Plated Beetle

ITEM:  Morph Ball

Jump up the ledges, then jump down into the main area to start another "boss"
fight.  You'll start by slaughtering a wave of Beetles, which really don't pose
much of a threat.  Once you've eliminated them all, a larger Plated Beetle will
appear.  Scan it for a log entry, then lock onto it with your L button.  The
beetle will approach you, juke right and left, and then dive at you.  Wait for
the two jukes, then press left (or right) along with your B button to quickly
side-step the dive.  Shoot the beetle in the red spot on the back side of it to
damage it, and repeat this process as necessary.

When the fight's over, grab the Morph Ball item from the alcove, then exit this
room by using the tunnel below the halfpipe to get back to the door.

 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
|                                                                             |

 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

--------------------
Ruined Shrine Access
--------------------

Simply head through the door on the other side.

----------
Main Plaza
----------

Fight the beetles, then take a left.  At the back of the area, you'll see a
series of ledges that can be used to jump up to the upper part of this area,
where you'll be able to cross the bridge.  Do so, and fight off the war wasps
in the process.  Head through the blue door up there when you get the chance.

----------------------
Ruined Fountain Access
----------------------

Yet another hallway filled with Scarabs...  what a shocker.  Fry them on your
way through, then use your X button to enter morph ball to roll underneath the
tree roots that have grown through the hallway.

---------------
Ruined Fountain
---------------

LOG:  Hatchling

Take a right and follow the path around the outside of the room, avoiding the
toxic water.  When you reach the fountain, scan the nearby wall for a Log
entry.  Head for the door closest to the one you used to enter this room.

----------------
Arboretum Access
----------------

LOG:  Shriekbat

Walk slowly through this hallway until you see the enemies hanging from the
ceiling, then quickly scan one for a log entry.  Use a missile on the blast
shield on the door on the other side of the room and head through it.

---------
Arboretum
---------

LOG:  Reaper Vine

Turn to the left and scan the Reaper Vine for a log entry, then shoot the spot
on it to make it retract.  Work your way over the platforms to reach the tree
in the middle of the room, then head up the outside of it until you reach the
bridge.  Head down the walkway on the outside of the room, tag the Reaper Vines
there, and use a missile on the blast shield door before going through it.

---------------------
Gathering Hall Access
---------------------

There's literally nothing of interest here, just head for the other side.

--------------
Gathering Hall
--------------

Take a right and watch out for the Shriekbats, then use a missile on the blast
shield door and head through it.

--------------
Save Station 2
--------------

Save your game if you'd like, then return to the Gathering Hall.

--------------
Gathering Hall
--------------

Follow the right wall of this room until you see the Blastcap pile on the
floor, then blast it and head through the door behind it.

------------------
Watery Hall Access
------------------

MISSILE:  Take out the fake wall near the toxic water with a missile.

Deal with the Shriekbats, then head for the lower area near the toxic water.
Turn to the left and hit the wall with a missile to reveal an alcove with a
missile expansion.  Head up the other ramp and blast the missile shield door
open.

-----------
Watery Hall
-----------

LOG:  Meteor Strike

ITEM:  Charge Beam

Jump up two platforms on the right side of the room, then stop and turn around.
Take a look to the right of the door you just came through and scan the runic
symbol on the wall, then turn around again and look down at the ground below
you.  See the group of Blastcaps on the platform?  Destroy them, then scan the
runic symbol that was under them.  Head up to higher platforms now, working
your way over to the other end of the room.  There're two platforms up here
with Reaper Vines - stop on the platform between those two and look at the wall
to the right with the metal thing on it.  Look down to scan a third runic
symbol, then continue moving up the platforms until you're close to the metal
thing.  Look to the right of the metal thing for the fourth runic symbol, then
scan the metal thing to remove it.

Jump down to the platform and grab the Charge Beam.  Scan the weird blurry
section of wall for a Log entry, then use your Charge Beam to eliminate the
Eyons on the walls (or just dodge them if you'd prefer).  Head all of the way
back to the door you used to enter this room.

 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

------------------
Watery Hall Access
------------------

Run through this room to the door on the other side.

--------------
Gathering Hall
--------------

Stop by the save room to save your game if you'd like, then check near the door
to Gathering Hall Access to find some platforms.  Take out the Blastcaps, then
move around the platforms along the outside of the room until you reach the
morph ball tunnel at the top of the room.  Roll through it, then stand up as
soon as you're out of it.  Deal with the Shriekbats, then take a running leap
over the gap to get to the door on the other side.

LOG:  Locked Door
LOG:  Stone Toad

Scan the door in the distance for a log entry, then take a left and head down
the path.  Take out the Shriekbats, then head for the morph ball tunnel at the
end of the hallway.  Before you get in it, look around for the giant toad thing
and scan it for a new Log entry.

----------------
Burn Dome Access
----------------

Not much going on here, but you'll note that the tunnels are in pieces that
will make it impossible for you to get back through them without a way to boost
yourself up in the air while in morph ball mode...  hmmm, I wonder what item
we're about to find?

---------
Burn Dome
---------

LOG:  Incinerator Drone
LOG:  Barbed War Wasp

ITEM:  Morph Ball Bomb

MISSILE:  Use a bomb to destroy the small section of wall on the opposite side
          of the room from the door to find an alcove with the expansion in it.

Scan the machine as soon as you can for a Log entry, then dodge the flames as
it spins around the room.  When the thing comes out of the top, hammer the red
parts until the flames point up towards the hives on the ceiling.  Barbed War
Wasps will come out of the hives, so make sure you scan one for a Log entry
before you slaughter them.

Repeat the process until the hive is destroyed.  The Morph Ball Bomb item will
be yours for the taking once the machine is gone.  Once you have the bombs,
look on the wall on the opposite side of the room from the door to find a small
weak spot.  Blow it up with a bomb, then roll through it to find a missile
expansion.  Exit the room through the door when you're done.

Now that you have bombs, you can use them to boost yourself upwards.  Simply
set one while in morph ball mode, then wait for it to blow up underneath you.
Use this method to reach the entrances to the pipes that lead out of this room.

-----------
Energy Core

LOG:  Morph Ball Slot

Remember the toad thing I had you scan earlier?  Get into morph ball and roll
near it, then drop a bomb when it sucks you in.  Enter the chamber behind where
it used to be and scan the thing on the wall for the Morph Ball Slot log entry,
then enter morph ball mode and get in it.  Drop a bomb while you're inside,
then roll through the nearby morph ball hole as soon as you're free from the
moprh ball slot.

When you hit the ground, stand up and jump to the next section of the room
where you can see another morph ball slot near the big blue machine.  Drop a
bomb in the slot, then stand up when you're free.  Run towards the nearby exit,
then sprint up the ramps until you're in the upper area by the entry door.  The
platforms in this area will only be raised for a short time, so quickly jump
over then to the path below and to the left of the locked door.  There's yet
another bomb slot at the end of this path - if you can get a bomb into it
before the timer runs out, the locked door in the main area will be unlocked.
Use the platforms by it to get up there.

--------------
Gathering Hall
--------------

MISSILE:  As soon as you come out of the door from East Atrium, use a double
          bomb jump on one of the red lights to get to the platform above the
          door.  Use a bomb to break the wall and grab the expansion.

As soon as you come out of the door, jump onto one of the red light things
nearby.  Enter morph ball mode, then do a double bomb jump to reach the
platform above the door.  There's a missile expansion up here that you can grab
by using a bomb to destroy a section of the wall.

(To do a double bomb jump, lay one bomb, then time it so that you lay another
 one right before the first one blows up.  You'll then need to lay a third one
 when Samus reaches the highest point from the first bomb's explosion.  The
 result should be that after falling from the first blast, the second bomb will
 automatically boost Samus up to the third bomb, which will then boost her up
 some more.  Take some time to practice if necessary, you're going to need this
 skill a few times in the game.)

Once you have the missiles, drop down and use the save room if you'd like, then
head through the door to Gathering Hall Access.

Arboretum
---------

LOG:  Venom Weed

Make your way to the other blue door on the opposite side of this room, then
turn around and face the tree.  Look straight up above the War Wasp Hive that's
up there and scan the runic symbol, then look on the far right side of the tree
to find another runic symbol to scan.  There's a third one on the right on a
platform with some crates and some red tentacle grass stuff.  Head over there,
stun the grass, then scan the symbol.

Work your way up the tree now, then take a right when you reach the bridge.
Deal with the War Wasps, then roll into a ball and continue moving along the
outside of the room when you can.  When you can stand up again, look around for
another runic symbol to scan.  This will be your fourth one, so scan it to open
the metal thing that's blocking the upper exit of this room.  Scan the red weed
stuff while you're at it to get a new Log entry, then stunn it and roll past
it.  Look around for the higher ledges when you're past the weeds and jump up
to where the metal thing was.  Use a bomb to destroy the weak plating on the
wall then roll through the tunnel.  Blast the shield on the door with a missile
and head through it.

LOG:  Flaahgra
LOG:  Flaahgra Tentacle

ITEM:  Varia Suit

Start off by scanning one of the tentacles low on the ground for a Log entry,
then scan the main body of the enemy for a second Log entry.  Lock onto the
main body with your L button, then pound it with regular shots until it's
visibly stunned.

To damage this thing, you'll need to knock the lense things so that they're not
shining light on it.  Head for whichever one's currently active, then shoot the
colored spot on the under side of it repeatedly to lock it back into its up
position.  This will further stun the enemy, and you'll have to find the tunnel
where the tentacle used to be so you can roll up and drop a bomb in the slot
right underneath Flaahgra.

You'll have to repeat this process several times, and each time, the number of
active lenses will increase by one.  You'll have to lock them all into their
up positions before you get a chance to drop another bomb.  As long as you
remember to continuously stun Flaahgra with regular shots, this isn't that hard
to do.

Grab the Varia Suit upgrade when the fight's over, then exit this room through
the door right next to where the Varia Suit was sitting.

farther down the hallway and scan the floating energy ball for another Log
entry, then run past it and go out the next door.

---------

LOG:  Oculus
LOG:  Contain

Jump straight out towards the opposite wall of the giant hole in front of you,
and you should land on a ledge.  Turn around and scan an Oculus for a Log
entry, then drop all the way down to the floor (you can also scan an Oculus
from down here if you look back up the tower).  Take out the wasps and the
hives, then scan the Log entry on the wall.  Don't worry about the runic
symbols and stuff, they can't help you right now.

LOG:  Beginnings

MISSILE:  Use your bombs to activate the three bomb slot things on the metal
          grate to raise it, then grab the expansion.

Take a right and scan the Chozo Log entry on the wall, then continue on towards
the other door.  See the three blue circle things on the metal grate?  Use
bombs to break the casing off of the lowest one, then drop a bomb in it.
Repeat the process for the second slot, and then use a double bomb jump to
reach the third.  The grate will retract, allowing you to take the missile
expansion from the center of the room.  Exit out the door opposite of the one
you used to enter this room.

          the upper area by the door to North Atrium next, and get into the
          other part of the morph ball area to the right of the door.  Follow
          it to the missile expansion, using bombs when necessary.

Take out the two War Wasp Hives high up in the room before you do anything
else, then take care of the beetles.  Take a look at the wall to the left of
the door you just came out of and enter the morph ball area there.  Destroy the
weak block, then get out and head up to the upper area.  To the right of the
door to the North Atrium, there's another entrance to the morph ball area.

When you're inside, use bombs to move your way towards the missile expansion.
Grab it, then get out and stop by the save room if you'd like.  Otherwise, just
head through the other upper door to get to the North Atrium.

in the lake for a Log entry, then hit it in the head until it's dead.  Scan one
of the floating enemies for another Log entry, then move across the platforms
as you slaughter the Puffers.

When you reach the other side of the room, destroy the crates and use a bomb on
the weak section of wall behind them.  You'll come out in another section of
the lake, so take out the Puffers and work your way around the platforms until
you find the next door.

----------
Pit Tunnel
----------

LOG:  Triclops

Scan one of the enemies under the metal floor grating for a Log entry, then
enter morph ball mode and enter the gap in the floor.  If one of the Triclops
enemies grabs you, it'll carry you back to the gap and spit you out, so make
sure you drop bombs in front of them to take care of them.  Your eventual goal
is to roll your way over to the gap in the floor on the other side of the room,
so you can get out and head through the next door.

------------
Triclops Pit
------------

Take a jump off of the cliff when you're in the main part of the room, then
turn around and enter the alcove there.  There's a morph ball tunnel entrance
here that will let you get under the floor grating, so roll in there.  Move
to the right, dodging the Triclops enemies along the way, until you find the
entrance to the next morph ball tunnel.  Go through it, then go through the

Take out the turrets on the central platform thing, then take a left and work
your way over the platforms until you reach the bridge leading to the middle of
the room.  Continue moving towards the back left of this area, and you'll see a
series of ledges that you can use to jump up the outside of the room to get to
the upper part of the Monitor Station.  Use the next bridge up here to go out
the blue door.

------------------
Transport Tunnel A
------------------

ENERGY TANK:  You'll have to use a series of double bomb jumps to move your way
              to the upper-left part of this tunnel.

These gray metal things can take two bomb hits before they break.  The first
one you come to has a path above it, which you can use to move towards the
upper-left part of the room.  You'll have to use a series of double bomb jumps
here to grab an energy tank on the other side, and if you fail, you'll have to
start over.

Leave the room through the door on the other side when you're ready.

a double bomb jump to get up to the ledge by the Chozo Log entry (which you
should scan), then carefully jump from this ledge to the tiny broken pillar in
the middle of the room.  You can use it to reach the next ledge, where you'll
need to do another double bomb jump to reach yet another higher ledge.

Up here, you'll see a hole in the wall with a big stalactite hanging down from
the ceiling outside.  Scan it for a Log entry, then hit it with a missile to
send it down to the ground below.  This will give you a platform that you'll
need to use later, but for now, head for the missile door in the back of the

Drop down to the bridge and turn around to find a Log entry, then drop all the
way down to the lower area.  Deal with the Sheegoth, then head up the ramp on
the right.  Scan the terminal thing here to realign the floating platforms,
then jump across them to reach the Boost Ball item.

Drop down to the smooth icy area below.  This is a halfpipe, which you'll find
all over the place on this planet.  You can use the Boost Ball with a halfpipe
to boost your way up to higher locations.  Charge the Boost Ball with your B
button while in morph ball, then move towards one wall of the halfpipe and let
go of the B button.  Immediately start charging another boost, then use it on
your way back down as you approach the other side of the halfpipe.  Using this
method, you can continue boosting yourself higher and higher until you reach
whatever it is you're trying to reach, which is a series of upper ledges right
now.  Once you're up there, walk your way back to the blue door and leave.

MISSILE:  Check behind your ship for a small morph ball path.

Save at your ship if you'd like, then look behind your ship for a small morph
ball path with a missile expansion in it.  Head out the door to Canyon Cavern
once you've got it - you have to head all the way back to Phendrana Drifts.

-------------
Canyon Cavern

------------------

Enter morph ball mode and roll up the ramp to the right, then quickly boost
your way over the rails past the Magmoor before it can fry you.

------------
Fiery Shores
------------

Dodge the flames on your way to the main part of the room.  If you really care
enough to avoid a few points of damage from the lava, you can use the path to
the left to reach the upper platforms on the ceiling to roll down to a small
patch of ground so you can jump to the next platform, but it's really not worth
the time.  Just jump into the lava and quickly jump out to get to the next
platform, then gather some energy from the crates and exit through the door.

------------
Shore Tunnel
------------

Nothing of interest here, just run to the other side.

Head for the back left corner of the room and use the platforms along the
outside until you reach the highest one, then turn around and find the floating
platform nearby.  Use your new Space Jump ability to get to it, then Space Jump
down to the next floating platform.  From that one, you can jump to the ground
in front of the large building.  Head through the blue door on it.

---------------

LOG:  Ice Parasite

Deal with the Sheegoth, then scan one of the Ice Parasites for a new Log entry.
Climb up the platforms around the outside of the room until you reach the upper
area, then hit the second Chozo bust on the right with a missile to reveal a
bomb slot.  Drop a bomb in it to raise the gate, then head through the door.

-------------
Chapel Tunnel
-------------

Enter the morph ball tunnel and use some bombs on the destructible block you
come to shortly after you enter the area to get to the lower part of the room.
Destroy the two weak sections of the pillar, then head back up to the upper
area and move to the left.  Destroy the next block in the floor so you can get
to the weak sections of the second pillar, then head back to the upper area and
exit the room to the left.

--------------------
Chapel of the Elders
--------------------

LOG:  Sheegoth

ITEM:  Wave Beam

Approach the Wave Beam item to start a fight with some Baby Sheegoths.  Kill
them, then scan the large one that appears for a Log entry.  There're many ways
to fight the big Sheegoth, perhaps the easiest method being to simply enter
morph ball mode and drop bombs underneath it a few times until it dies.  You
can also hit it in the mouth by getting close enough to make it use its ice
breath, which will leave the mouth vulnerable for a while.

Take the Wave Beam item once the fight is finished, then activate it by pushing
right on the C Stick so you can get out of the purple door in this room.

LOG:  Ice Shriekbat

Deal with the Sheegoths, then head for the fallen spike I had you knock off of
the ceiling earlier (or if you haven't done it yet, climb up the inside of the
small structure nearby and use a missile on the spike to knock it down).  Jump
on the top of the spike, then look for the nearby alcove and take out the two
enemies there.  Jump up there, then scan the Ice Shriekbats for a Log entry
before they swoop down at you.  Head for the purple Wave Beam door when you're
ready.

ENERGY TANK:  Activate both spinners in the lower part of the room, then use
              the bomb slot to fill the room with water.  Head to the tunnel in
              the wall on the opposite side of the room via the floating
              platforms, then enter it and grab the energy tank.

Scan one of the Spinner devices for a new Log entry, then activate both of them
to release the cover plates from the Chozo statues high in the room.  Use the
platforms to reach the bomb slot, then activate it to fill the room with water.
Quickly move across the platforms (that are now floating) to the morph ball
tunnel on the opposite wall, then grab the energy tank in there and exit the
small area through the hole in the corner.

You'll have to repeat the process to fill the room with water again, only this
time, use the floating platforms to reach the platforms on the pillar in the
middle of the room, where you'll be able to continue jumping to other platforms
until you're on the very top of the pillar.  From up there, use a missile on
the far door and head over there.

a bomb slot will activate on one of the walls nearby.  Use it, then use the
second one that appears on another wall.  Activate the spinners at the very
bottom of the room, and the observatory will become fully functional.

Scan the various pieces of the projection to get two more Log entries, then
make your way to the top of the projector via the platforms along the outside
of the observatory (some of them will require some very close jumps, so make
sure you don't fail to attempt a jump just because it looks like it's too far
away).  Grab the Super Missile item from the top of the projector, then go
through the missile door nearby.

ENERGY TANK:  Shatter one of the containment units in the main part of the room
              and grab it from inside.

Scan the walls for two Space Pirate Log entries, then scan the Metroid in the
containment unit for another Log entry.  It'll break free, so be ready to nail
it with charged shots until it explodes.  Deal with the pirate that attacks,
then jump through the hole that forms in the glass to reach the platform on the
other side.

Scan the terminals here to find one that has a new Log entry on it, then
continue down the ramp.  On the final stretch before the elevator, look for a
small platform up on the wall.  Jump up to it, then roll along the narrow path
there to reach a missile expansion.

Drop down to the lowest level now, look around for the containment unit with
the energy tank in it, shatter it, and grab the tank.  Scan the terminals

then drop down to the bottom and deal with the turrets before scanning the
third force field terminal.  Grab the Thermal Visor item once all of the force
fields are down.

Activate the Thermal Visor by pressing down on your control pad.  Deal with the
Shadow Pirates, then head back up to the upper part of the room.  Metroids will
escape from their containment units on the way up, so be ready to deal with
them.  When you reach the door at the top, use your Thermal Visor to find the

LOG:  Thardus
LOG:  Spider Ball Track

ITEM:  Spider Ball

Begin by using your Thermal Visor to find the weak spot, then nail it with a
super missile at close range.  The protective casing will break off, but the
resulting brightness will render your Thermal Visor useless.  Switch it off and
target the exposed area normally until it explodes.  If Thardus turns into a
ball and starts rolling around, enter morph ball mode and boost out of the way.

Each time you destroy one of the blue weakened areas, you'll have to find the
next weak spot with your Thermal Visor and destroy the casing around it before
you can destroy it.  Repeat the process as many times as it takes you, then
grab the Spider Ball item that Thardus leaves behind.  Scan one of the magnetic
rails in the room for a Log entry, then find the one closest to the second Wave
Beam door and bomb jump your way to it.  Grab ahold of it with your R button,
then move to the top and drop a bomb.  It'll boost you to the track on the
ceiling, and you'll be able to roll to a ledge right in front of the door.

          panel behind it.  Use the halfpipe to get up to the Spider Ball track
          that's activated, drop a bomb in the bomb slot, and repeat the
          process on the Spider Ball track and bomb slot on the other side of
          the halfpipe.  Use the piston thing that's activated to reach the
          expansion in the corner.

Use the huge halfpipe to get to the other side of the room, where you'll find
three Chozo Lore entries on the wall that you can scan for three Log entries.
Once you have them, use a super missile on the nearby statue thing, then scan
the panel behind it to activate a chunk of Spider Ball track high on the wall.
Use the halfpipe to boost your way up to it, then drop a bomb in the bomb slot
up there.

A new section of Spider Ball track will be activated on the other side of the
room, so move over there and use the halfpipe to get up there.  Drop a bomb in
the bomb slot, then drop to the floor and use the nearby piston thing to move
up.  Grab the missile expansion, then roll out of the hole behind it to get
back down.  Use the halfpipe again to get back to the other side of the room
and head through the missile door.

Move forward until you see the morph ball tunnel to the left, then roll through
it and scan the missile station inside for a Log entry.  Head down to the main
part of the room, and a battle will start with a Chozo Ghost.  Scan it for a
Log entry, then keep your eyes peeled and nail it with super missiles or
whatever you want until it dies.

Scan the Chozo Lore on the wall behind the giant statue for a Log entry, then
get on the statue's hands and enter morph ball mode.  Hold your R button down
so you stick to the Spider Ball track on the ceiling, then make use of the bomb
slot at the end of the track.  The covers will pop off of the three bomb slots
above the giant statue, so use the platforms around the outside of the room to
get up there.

Hit the purple slot with a Wave Beam shot, then get in it and drop a bomb to
rotate the tube in the floor.  Get back in the giant statue's hands, then
follow the morph ball area to the door behind the force field.  Scan the nearby
terminal to deactivate the shield, then go through the door.

the main part of the temple, then grab the Artifact of Truth from the center.
Many of the pillars will have things for you to scan once you take the Artifact
of Truth, so take a thorough look around and scan them all.  They have hints to
the locations of the remaining Chozo Artifacts, which will help you hunt them
down (of course, you won't exactly need hints if you're using this guide...
but they'll come in handy if you'd prefer to find them on your own).

Hydro Access Tunnel
-------------------

ENERGY TANK:  Use the water jets in the middle of the morph ball area to
              perform really high bomb jumps to reach the uppermost area.  The
              timing will take a little bit of practice, but basically, you
              just have to lay a new bomb when you're almost at the top of your
              boost from the previous bomb, then continue the process until you
              reach the energy tank at the top.

Roll through the morph ball tunnel, then use the water jet to get a good boost
from a bomb that will send you high enough to make it over the passage to the
right.  You'll find more water jets here, and you'll note that the path
continues upwards for a while.  If you time some bomb jumps perfectly here, you
can boost yourself really high up and grab an energy tank.

Once you have the energy tank, drop down and move to the right until you reach
the door.

---------------

MISSILE:  Climb all the way to the top of the room via the walkways and ledges
          along the outside, then look for the power conduit that activates the
          crane controls using your Thermal Visor.  Once you've charged the
          conduit, enter the crane control room with the force fields around it
          and scan the controls to move the crane.  Use the Spider Ball track
          on the crane's arm to move towards the alcove with the missile
          expansion in it.

Head down and take care of the two turrets above the force field first, then
scan the two terminals down here to drop that force field.  Look around the
area for a ramp leading up and follow it, then fend off the pirates that attack
you.  Head for the far end of this upper area and use the ledges there to get
to the top platform, then activate your Thermal Visor and look for a power
conduit to activate with your Wave Beam.

With the conduit activated, enter the control room area inside the force field
pod and scan the control terminal to move the crane.  Use the Spider Ball track
on the crane's arm once it's moved to reach the missile expansion in the alcove
high up on the wall, then drop down and use the other small Spider Ball track
to reach the wave beam door.

          to destroy the weak sections of wall along the outside of the room.

Deal with the pirates, then scan the terminals down here to get a Log entry and
make the platforms align for you.  Use them to get to the next level of the
room, then deal with the Wave Pirates.  Scan the terminals up here to align a
new group of platforms leading to the top of the room, and make sure you scan
the yellow pirate for a Log entry.

The spinner near where the yellow pirate was standing can be used to rotate the
laser cannon on the ceiling.  Rotate the cannon to point at the weak sections
of the walls, then scan the nearby terminal to initiate a blast.  Repeat this
as many times as necessary  to find the missile expansion and the Ice Beam
door, then head through it.

Deal with the pirates, then use the bomb slot in the back of the room to rotate
the central pillar in the room.  It has several sections of Spider Ball track
attached to it - rotate it until the blue section is pointing to the left,
where it will complete a path to the next level.  Roll up it and work your way
around the catwalk to the next bomb slot, where you should rotate the pillar
until the red section is pointing to the left, just like the blue section was
earlier when you used it.

Drop down to the floor now and rotate the lower section again until the red
part is on the opposite side of the pillar from you to line up with the other
red sections.  Roll up the red section to get to the next level, then head out

of the room to start a fight with the Elite Pirate when you're ready.  It's not
much of a match for you, but don't hit it with beam weapons while its cannon is
active if you can avoid it.

When it's dead, scan one of the new pirates for yet another Log entry, then
eliminate them and look around the room for more Log entries via the terminals
around the room on both levels.  One of them will also drop the force field
that's blocking the next Ice Beam door in the ceiling.

ITEM:  X-Ray Visor

ARTIFACT:  Artifact of Chozo

Drop down and grab the X-Ray Visor, then drop a power bomb in the middle of the
room to shatter the weak walls (the Seedling enemies that spawn from the
ceiling will give you power bomb ammo if you need it).  Walk into the main area
until the Chozo Ghosts attack.  You can track them down with your new X-Ray
Visor, so nail them with super missiles until they're all dead.

When the room's cleared out, look around in the water for a small circular
hatch with a Chozo icon on it.  Use a bomb on it, and a pillar will come out of
the ground.  Use the spinner on the bottom of it, then grab the Chozo Artifact
that shows up.

To get out of this room, you'll have to find the platforms necessary to work
your way to the upper parts of the room.  When you reach the top of the dome
thing, look for the small hole underneath the Chozo statue and roll down it
carefully.  Continue out of the room through the morph ball tunnel.

MISSILE:  Use a power bomb on the large weak spot on the floor, then use the
          halfpipe to boost your way to the magnetic rails on the ceiling.  Use
          these rails to work your way over to the missile expansion.  You'll
          have to make use of your bombs as well as some tricky falls to reach
          it, and you'll have to roll across some non-magnetic sections.

Take out the Chozo Ghosts, then use a power bomb on the large weak spot on the
floor to reveal a halfpipe.  Use it to latch onto the spider ball tracks on the
ceiling, which you can follow all the way to the other side of the room to grab
a missile expansion (though you'll have to do some bomb jumps, do some careful
falling, and roll across some non-magnetic sections to get there).

Once you have the missile expansion, head out the morph ball tunnel that you
have to bomb jump to reach.

MISSILE:  In the back part of the room by the huge roots coming out of the
          water, you can find a hidden passage underneath the water.  Jump down
          there and find it, then space jump out of the water at the end of the
          path and grab the expansion.

Walk into the water and head for the far side of the room, where the huge roots
are sticking out of the water.  Find the low spot where you can go underwater,
then jump out of the water at the end of the path to find a missile expansion.

Work your way up the platforms around the outside (and in the middle of) this
room.  See the weak parts of the pillars around the outside?  Destroy all four
of them, and part of the tower will collapse on itself, allowing you access to
a higher level of it.  Move up the new platforms, then destroy the next set of
weakened pillar supports.  Continue this process until the third set is
destroyed, then jump up the final platforms and grab the Wavebuster item.

---------------

Head towards the door on the other side of the room, but instead of going
through it, use the platforms to the right of it to get a clear shot at the
grappling point higher up in the room.  Swing over to the circular platform
attached to the pillar, then look around on it for a spinner.  Use the spinner
to lock the upper part of the platform into a higher position.

Jump to the next closest platform now and use the spinner there to move the
upper piece higher up, then continue moving up to higher platforms.  When you
reach the one with the spider ball track, raise the upper part with its spinner
before getting on the spider ball track.  Use the bomb slot on the final
platform to raise the entire ceiling.

Use a bomb jump to reach the magnetic portion of the piston thing that's
sticking out of the wall.  From here, you'll have to work your way around the
various spider ball tracks around the outside of the room until you reach the
upper Ice Beam door.  It's fairly straight-forward, so just watch out for the
Plated Parasites along the way.

Drop all the way down and head through the blue door to the right.

(I know it sucks, but there're two items in the Root Cave in the Tallon
 Overworld that you need to go back for, and this is pretty much the closest
 you'll be to the Root Cave for the rest of the game.  If you don't backtrack
 now, you'll just have to do it later.)

MISSILE:  Climb up towards the Plasma Beam door using your X-Ray Visor to see
          invisible platforms when necessary, then examine the wall closest to
          the final platform before the Plasma Beam door to see a hidden alcove
          with the missile expansion in it.

Head up to the blue door in the middle of the room, then use the nearby
grappling point in front of you to reach the far platform.  Work your way up
the room, and when it seems like you can't get any higher, activate your X-Ray
Visor and look for the invisible platforms.  Continue working your way up, and
when you reach the last platform before the Plasma Beam door, check the closest
wall with your X-Ray Visor to see a hidden alcove.  Grab the missile expansion
from it, then jump over to the Plasma Beam door and go through it.

MISSILE:  Use the Glider high up in the room to grapple over to the ledge near
          where the pile of crates is, then look up to the ceiling to find a
          weak spike hanging down.  Hit it with a missile, then drop into the
          water and grab the expansion.

Deal with the pirates, then work your way over to the other side of the room
where you can grapple the Glider high up in the room.  Swing over to the
platform near the pile of crates, then look up to the ceiling and hit the weak
spot with a missile.  Jump into the resulting hole in the ice and grab the

--------------------

MISSILE:  You'll have to melt some ice on the back side of a pillar near the
          edge of the room by the tunnel area with the panel at the back.

MISSILE:  Smash the cordite covering on the front of the Chozo fort entrance
          with a super missile, then scan what's under it.  Enter the morph
          ball hole that's revealed and use the spider ball track there to get
          the expansion.

Take a right and drop down to the ground, then look around on the backside of
the pillar to find some ice that you can melt with your Plasma Beam.  Grab the
missile expansion there, then climb back up the ledges around the outside of
the room.  Your goal is the Chozo fort on the other side of the area, which you
can only reach by jumping across the floating platforms.

When you reach it, look for the cordite panel on the wall and destroy it with a
super missile.  Scan what's under it, then use the spider ball track that's
revealed and grab the missile expansion.  Roll back down the track and go
through the nearby door when you're done.

MISSILE:  Use a Plasma Beam shot to melt the ice on the wall below the door
          leading to Plaza Walkway.

MISSILE:  Head up the platforms along the room, cross the broken bridge thing,
          and examine the roof area to find some spider ball tracks on the part
          by the corner.  Use them to reach the expansion.

Deal with the Sheegoth or just ignore it as you work your way around the room.
There's some ice on a wall below the door to Plaza Walkway that you can melt
with your Plasma Beam, so go ahead and do it.  Grab the missile expansion from
behind it, then jump up on the nearby ledges and make your way over the broken
bridge.  The little roof thing that you pass under has a spider ball track
attached to the side near the corner, so find it and follow it to the end,
where you'll find another missile expansion.

Exit the room through the upper door when you've grabbed both expansions.

LOG:  Plasma Trooper

MISSILE:  As you're looking directly away from the Ice Beam door in the middle
          of the room, you'll see two paths branching out in front of you to
          the left and right.  Head down the right one until you reach the
          wall, then carefully drop off the side of it to land on the platform
          directly below it.  Drop a power bomb and grab the missile expansion
          from behind the wall.  Alternatively, you can reach the platform by
          the missile expansion using some invisible platforms that you can see
          with the X-Ray Visor.

Deal with the turret, then jump on the mobile platform.  Look down towards the
Ice Beam door and drop onto the platform in front of it.  There's a new kind of
Space Pirate in here, so look down and scan one of them for a Log entry.  As
you're looking directly away from the Ice Beam door, you'll see two paths
branching out in front of you to the left and right.  Head down the right one
until you reach the wall, then carefully drop off the side of it to land on the
platform directly below it.  Drop a power bomb and grab the missile expansion
from behind the wall, then head out the Ice Beam door you were standing by
earlier.  (Alternatively, you can reach the platform by the missile expansion
using some invisible platforms that you can see with the X-Ray Visor.)

Don't be tempted by the Plasma Beam door at the bottom of the room - it's a
dead end from this direction for now.

------------------

--------------

Take care of the pirates here and stop at the nearby save point if you'd like,
then use a power bomb to clear the debris away from the other Ice Beam door.

-------------------
Quarantine Access A
-------------------

You can use the tunnel in the floor to get to the other side of this room if
you'd like, or just hit one of the inner turrets with a super missile to knock
them all out.

--------------------
Metroid Quarantine A
--------------------

MISSILE:  Use power bombs on the rocks by the diagonal spider ball tracks to
          open a path to the spider ball bridge, then use the nearby invisible
          platform (which you can see with your X-Ray Visor) to reach the
          missile expansion on a high ledge.

Scan the terminals up here, and one of them will lower the force field that's
blocking the Metroid area.  Jump down and fight off the pirates and Metroids,
then head into the Phazon-filled area.  Deal with any remaining Metroids, then
jump over to the other side using the invisible platforms above the Phazon pit
(you can see the platforms with your X-Ray Visor).

Take care of the Metroids on this side of the room, then jump on the big
mushroom like thing to reach a platform with some crates on it.  Use your X-Ray
Visor again to see a floating platform that you can use to get to the spider
ball tracks, but instead of using them, use a power bomb on the rocks next to
them.  Use another one on the other side of the cave, then use the spider ball
bridge to reach the other side of the room.  Find one more invisible platform
with your X-Ray Visor, then jump up to the ledge with the missile expansion on
it.

Once you have it, return to the diagonal spider ball tracks and use them to
reach the upper Ice Beam door.

-----------------
Elevator Access B

it down.  Head out the Plasma Beam door at the bottom.

------------------
Fungal Hall Access
------------------

MISSILE:  Underneath one of the big mushroom things at the bottom of the room.

Deal with the pirate, then drop down to the floor and quickly check underneath
the big mushroom thing for a missile expansion.  Grab it, then get out of the
Phazon and head out the Plasma Beam door.

-------------
Fungal Hall A
-------------

There're some Hunter Metroids in here, so be prepared to deal with them from a
distance whenever possible.  You'll have to work your way through this room by
jumping over the mushroom things sticking out of the walls, then use the Glider
at the far end to grapple your way to the upper door.

--------------------
Phazon Mining Tunnel
--------------------

Use a power bomb to break the rocks blocking the path, then roll through the
morph ball hole.  If your ears have gotten good at picking up the sound the
game makes when an item is nearby, you'll probably hear it while you're in
here.  Unfortunately, it's down in the Phazon, and it's impossible for you to
survive getting it without an item you don't have yet.

Instead, simply boost your way over the disappearing platforms, then head in
the other direction when you encounter a block that you can bomb.  Head out the
Plasma Beam door.

-------------
Fungal Hall B
-------------

This room is very similar to the other Fungal Hall room, except there're
regular Metroids here instead of Hunter Metroids.  Work your way over the
fungal growths until you reach the Glider, then grapple it to reach the Plasma
Beam door on the left.

---------------------
Missile Station Mines
---------------------

Use the missile station to stock up on missiles, then return to the previous
room.

-------------
Fungal Hall B
-------------

MISSILE:  You can bomb a hole in the floor at the very bottom of the room under
          the Plasma Beam door that leads to Quarantine Access B.  The missile
          expansion is just there waiting for you once you make the hole.

I know it'll be frustrating, but you're going to have to jump down to the floor
to grab a missile expansion before continuing to the next room.  Head for the
dead-end section of floor directly underneath the next door you want to go
through, then bomb the floor to find the expansion.

Head back and use the fungus things to reach the Glider again, then grapple
over towards the next door.  Be careful not to fall into the gap right before
the door, or you'll have to go through the process again.

-------------------
Quarantine Access B
-------------------

There're some invisible Bombus in this room, so use your X-Ray Visor to see
them.  Blast them with Wave Beam shots to get rid of them, then head out the
next door.

--------------------
Metroid Quarantine B
--------------------

LOG:  Special Forces

MISSILE:  The container thing next to the terminal with the Space Pirate Data
          entry on it can be broken with a super missile to reveal a missile
          expansion.

Deal with the pirates here, then head for the chasm in the middle of the room.
Take out those pirates from a distance using charged shots, then use the spider
ball tracks on the pillar thing to reach the upper part of the room.  Jump and
latch onto the grappling point to swing over the chasm, then scan the terminal
there to drop the force field.

Take out these pirates as well, then scan the nearby terminals for a Log entry.
The nearby container thing can be smashed with a super missile, so hit it with
one and grab the missile expansion from it.  Head through the lower Plasma Beam
door when you're done.

LOG:  Omega Pirate

ITEM:  Phazon Suit

Slowly approach the stasis chamber until you can scan the pirate inside for a
Log entry, then get closer to the chamber until the Omega Pirate attacks.  Wait
for him to do his ground pound attack, then smash one of his four weak spots on
his limbs with a super missile.  Once all four are destroyed, he'll summon some
pirates and turn invisible.  Try to eliminate some of the pirates as quickly as
you can, then use your X-Ray Visor to find the Omega Pirate as he tries to
absorb Phazon along the outside of the room.  Hit him with a super missile
while he's doing it to cause some serious damage.

Repeat the process a few times until he's destroyed, at which time you'll earn
your shiny new Phazon Suit.  Use the nearby elevator to reach the upper area
and head out the Plasma Beam door there.

ARTIFACT:  Artifact of Warrior

Head for the stasis chamber in the center of the room and drop a power bomb in
front of it to release the Phazon Elite, which you should scan for a Log entry.
The pirate's really not hard to beat, just jump over his energy waves and blast
him in the head with charged Plasma shots or whatever else you'd like.  When he

---------------
Artifact Temple
---------------

LOG:  Meta Ridley

Head to the left and follow the path until you're standing on the main area of
the temple.  Meta Ridley will approach, so be prepared to scan him for a Log
entry.  Dodge his attacks when necessary, but keep your eyes open for when he
hovers in a stationary position.  Hit him with super missiles as fast as you
can, and eventually, he'll start flying around the temple.

Continue dodging his attacks until he holds still again, then hit him with some
more super missiles.  When you get him down to about a quarter of his health,
his wings will be destroyed and he'll be forced to finish the rest of the fight
on the main temple area.  He'll do a lot of lunge attacks at you, so be ready
to quickly sidestep out of his way.  To damage him now, you'll have to stun him
in the mouth to make him stumble, then hit the spot on his chest.  I suggest
super missiles if you have the time.

Once he's dealt with, the path to the Impact Crater will be open.  You might
want to backtrack to your ship to resupply your missiles if you used too many
of them, but otherwise, just step into the blue light to proceed.

                             === Impact Crater ===
------------------
Crater Entry Point
------------------

Use the nearby save point if you'd like, then continue out the Plasma Beam door
on the side of the room.

---------------
Crater Tunnel A
---------------

LOG:  Lumigek

Scan the small enemies crawling around for a Log entry, then head out the door
on the other side of the room.

-----------
Phazon Core
-----------

LOG:  Fission Metroid


Scan one of the Metroids in here for a new Log entry, then blast it until it
splits in half.  The halves will be one of four colors (yellow, white, purple,
or red), and depending on what color it is, you'll only be able to use that
specific beam to destroy it.  Luckilly, power bombs also work wonders.  Work
your way up the platforms around the outside of the room, and when Metroids
threaten to knock you off, make good use of your power bombs to get rid of them
quickly.

If you move quickly, you'll reach the Plasma Beam door to the missile station
well before you run out of power bombs.

----------------------
Crater Missile Station
----------------------

Resupply your missiles, then return to the previous room.

-----------
Phazon Core
-----------

Take a left and follow the ledge until you run into some more Metroids.  Two
will attack from the front, but another will also attack from the rear, so be
ready to slaughter them all with a power bomb.  Head up the next series of
floating platforms until you reach the central pillar, then follow the path to
the second Plasma Beam door.

---------------
Crater Tunnel B
---------------

You can use the spider ball tracks here to get to the door on the other side if
you really want, but the stuff on the floor really won't hurt you much if you
want to just jump over there quickly.

-----------------------
Phazon Infusion Chamber
-----------------------

Simply walk into this room until Metroid Prime leaves, then follow it.

--------------
Subchamber One
--------------

LOG:  Metroid Prime

Scan Metroid Prime for a new Log entry, then observe what color it is and
switch your beam to match it.  You'll only be able to damage it by hitting it
in the head with weapons based off of the correct beam, so continue watching
for color changes throughout the battle and switch your beam accordingly.  Ice
Spreader works wonderfully whenever Metroid Prime turns white, so make sure you
remember to use it when you get the chance.

After enough damage, Metroid Prime will dive through a hole in the floor, and
Samus will follow it.

--------------
Subchamber Two
--------------

Continue the fight in this chamber using the same methods as before.  Metroid
Prime will dive through the floor again once you've caused enough damage.

----------------
Subchamber Three
----------------

Same thing here, too.  Continue fighting using the same tactics you were using
before, but you'll also have to watch out for airborne attacks now.  Metroid
Prime will occasionally launch spherical objects that will very slowly lock
onto you, but you can destroy them before they reach you if you're quick.  You
can lock onto them, too, which will help make things easier.

Once enough damage is done, Metroid Prime will dive through the floor again.

---------------
Subchamber Four
---------------

Metroid Prime will be much more aggressive now, but the same strategies you've
been using will still work.  Once you've completely drained its energy, it'll
dive through one last wall.  Follow it down.

---------------
Subchamber Five
---------------

You don't actually do anything here, it's just an empty room on the map that
you fall through on your way to the next room.

------------------
Metroid Prime Lair
------------------

LOG:  Metroid Prime

Scan Metroid Prime again for a new Log entry, which should be your final one to
reach 100%.

To fight Metroid Prime this time, you'll have to stand in the puddles of Phazon
it leaves on the ground.  When you're standing in the puddle, your beam will
channel the Phazon into a Phazon Beam, which you can use to damage Metroid
Prime.

Aside from jumping over the energy waves it sends at you, you just need to keep
track of it when there's no Phazon for you to use.  Depending on its attack
phase, Metroid Prime might be visible with your normal visor, your X-Ray Visor,
or your Thermal Visor, so you might have to switch back and forth if you don't
see it right away.

When it summons a new pool of Phazon, some Metroids will usually accompany it.
Be ready to smash them with super missiles right away, or use a power bomb if
you can spare one (though you should save those for the Fission Metroids it'll
summon late in the fight).

When you finally destroy it, the game will end on its own.  If you've been
following this guide completely, you should end with 100% item completion and
100% scan completion.

 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

You'll need to collect all twelve of the Chozo Artifacts to gain entrance to
the Impact Crater near the end of the game.  Scanning the various statues in
the Artifact Temple (near your ship's landing site) will give you clues about
the locations of many of the artifacts, but who needs clues when you can just
read about them in a guide, right?

-----------------
Artifact of Truth
-----------------

FOUND:  Artifact Temple (Tallon Overworld)

You'll find this one just sitting in the middle of the Artifact Temple waiting
for you to take it.

-----------------
Artifact of Chozo
-----------------

FOUND:  Life Grove (Tallon Overworld)

Once you've gotten the X-Ray Visor from this room, you can use it to smash some
of the walls to work your way out of the room.  After fending off some Chozo
Ghosts, roll into the water and look around for a small circular panel with a
Chozo icon on it.  Bomb the panel, then use the spinner on the bottom of the
pillar that shows up.  The artifact will appear once you've used the spinner.

---------------------
Artifact of Lifegiver
---------------------

FOUND:  Tower Chamber (Chozo Ruins)

Once you've got the Gravity Suit, you can reach the Tower Chamber through a
door in the water at the bottom of the Tower of Light.  The artifact is just
sitting in the Tower Chamber waiting for you to take it.

----------------
Artifact of Wild
----------------

FOUND:  Sunchamber (Chozo Ruins)

The front entrance of this room will be sealed after you get your Gravity Suit
from it early in the game, but you'll be able to revisit it later.  Once you
slaughter the Chozo Ghosts inside, you'll be able to take the artifact from the
top of the huge flower in the middle of the room.

------------------
Artifact of Nature
------------------

FOUND:  Lava Lake (Magmoor Caverns)

One of the pillars in this room can be destroyed with a super missile, and the

--------------------

FOUND:  Warrior Shrine (Magmoor Caverns)

You can reach this room through a door high up in Monitor Station.  The
artifact is just sitting on a statue waiting for you to take it.

------------------
Artifact of Spirit
------------------

FOUND:  Storage Cave (Phendrana Drifts)

The Storage Cave can be accessed through a Plasma Beam door high up in
Phendrana's Edge.  You'll have to use a power bomb to destroy a wall in front
of the door, so use your X-Ray Visor to see it if necessary.  The artifact is
just sitting in the Storage Cave waiting for you to grab it.

-----------------
Artifact of Elder
-----------------

FOUND:  Control Tower (Phendrana Drifts)

You can melt some ice in the small room above the door to the East Tower, and
when you look out the window where the ice was, you should see some explosive
canisters attached to a tall structure.  Hit them with a missile, and the tower
will fall, giving you access to a morph ball tunnel that will lead to the
artifact.

---------------
Artifact of Sun
---------------

FOUND:  Chozo Ice Temple (Phendrana Drifts)

Once you have the Plasma Beam, you'll be able to melt the ice on the huge Chozo
statue's hands high up in this room.  Stand on the hands and enter morph ball
mode, then roll into the passage that opens up to grab the artifact.

-------------------
Artifact of Newborn
-------------------

FOUND:  Phazon Mining Tunnel (Phazon Mines)

When you have your Phazon Suit, you'll be able to survive in the Phazon at the
bottom of this room.  Roll down there and bomb your way through the blocks
until you reach the artifact.

-------------------
Artifact of Warrior
-------------------

FOUND:  Elite Research (Phazon Mines)

Use a power bomb on the huge stasis chamber to free the Phazon Elite, then grab
the artifact from where the stasis chamber used to be once the Phazon Elite has
been eliminated.

-----------------
Artifact of World
-----------------

FOUND:  Elder Chamber (Chozo Ruins)

In the Hall of Elders, use the bomb slot with the Plasma Beam shield on it,
then go through the door that's revealed to enter the Elder Chamber.  The
artifact is just waiting for you to take it in there.

 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

For the sake of simplicity, I've listed the expansions in the following three
sections in the same order that you'd get them in if you were playing the game
along the same path that I took when I wrote this guide.

The quick list sections farther down in this guide have the expansions sorted
by area if you'd prefer to look at them that way.

 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
|                                                                             |

 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

There're 49 missile expansions in the game, and the original missile launcher
gives you five missiles as well.  Therefore, when you've found all of the
expansions in the game, you should have a total of 250 missiles.

room by the tunnel area with the panel at the back.

--------------------
Phendrana Shorelines (Phendrana Drifts)
--------------------

Smash the cordite covering on the front of the Chozo fort entrance with a super
missile, then scan what's under it.  Enter the morph ball hole that's revealed
and use the spider ball track there to get the expansion.

--------------
Ice Ruins East (Phendrana Drifts)
--------------

Use a Plasma Beam shot to melt the ice on the wall below the door leading to
Plaza Walkway.

--------------
Ice Ruins East (Phendrana Drifts)
--------------

Head up the platforms along the room, cross the broken bridge thing, and
examine the roof area to find some spider ball tracks on the part by the
corner.  Use them to reach the expansion.

------------------
Quarantine Monitor (Phendrana Drifts)
------------------

It's just sitting there for you to grab it.  Quarantine Monitor can only be
accessed through a morph ball tunnel high up on a ledge in the Quarantine Cave,
which you'll have to use your grappling beam to reach.

------------------------
Phazon Processing Center (Phazon Mines)
------------------------

As you're looking directly away from the Ice Beam door in the middle of the
room, you'll see two paths branching out in front of you to the left and right.
Head down the right one until you reach the wall, then carefully drop off the
side of it to land on the platform directly below it.  Drop a power bomb and
grab the missile expansion from behind the wall.  Alternatively, you can reach
the platform by the missile expansion using some invisible platforms that you
can see with the X-Ray Visor.

--------------------
Metroid Quarantine A (Phazon Mines)
--------------------

Use power bombs on the rocks by the diagonal spider ball tracks to open a path
to the spider ball bridge, then use the nearby invisible platform (which you
can see with your X-Ray Visor) to reach the missile expansion on a high ledge.

------------------
Fungal Hall Access (Phazon Mines)
------------------

Underneath one of the big mushroom things at the bottom of the room.

-------------
Fungal Hall B (Phazon Mines)
-------------

You can bomb a hole in the floor at the very bottom of the room under the
Plasma Beam door that leads to Quarantine Access B.  The missile expansion is
just there waiting for you once you make the hole.

--------------------
Metroid Quarantine B (Phazon Mines)
--------------------

The container thing next to the terminal with the Space Pirate Data entry on it
can be broken with a super missile to reveal a missile expansion.

-----------------
Security Access A (Phazon Mines)
-----------------

Use a power bomb on the weak wall near the door to the Main Quarry and grab the
expansion from the small alcove behind it.

 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

There're 14 energy tanks in the game.

----------------------
Transport Access North (Chozo Ruins)
----------------------

It's just sitting in the middle of the room for you to grab it.

-------
Furnace (Chozo Ruins)
-------

Roll through the lower tunnels until you reach the main empty area, where
you'll find the energy tank just sitting there for you.

----------
Main Plaza (Chozo Ruins)
----------

You can just grab it from the ledge if you enter the Main Plaza from Plaza
Access.

------------------
Transport Tunnel A (Magmoor Caverns)
------------------

You'll have to use a series of double bomb jumps to move your way to the
upper-left part of this tunnel.

----------------
Ruined Courtyard (Phendrana Drifts)
----------------

Activate both spinners in the lower part of the room, then use the bomb slot to
fill the room with water.  Head to the tunnel in the wall on the opposite side
of the room via the floating platforms, then enter it and grab the energy tank.

-------------------
Research Lab Aether (Phendrana Drifts)
-------------------

Shatter one of the containment units in the main part of the room and grab it
from inside.

-------------------
Magmoor Workstation (Magmoor Caverns)
-------------------

Activate the three Wave Beam targets along the outer walls using your Thermal
Visor, then get under the grated floor area and head for the light colored
gate.  Scan the thing on the wall back there, then quickly roll out to the
green gate.  Scan the thing on the wall here as well, then quickly roll out and
head through the purple gate to find the energy tank.

--------------------------------
Cargo Freight Lift to Deck Gamma (Tallon Overworld)
--------------------------------

Smash the grate on the lift at the bottom of this room with a missile, and the
energy tank will be yours.

-------------------
Hydro Access Tunnel (Tallon Overworld)
-------------------

Use the water jets in the middle of the morph ball area to perform really high
bomb jumps to reach the uppermost area.  The timing will take a little bit of
practice, but basically, you just have to lay a new bomb when you're almost at
the top of your boost from the previous bomb, then continue the process until
you reach the energy tank at the top.

-----------------
Ventilation Shaft (Phazon Mines)
-----------------

Use a power bomb on the weak spot in the floor, then roll through the tunnel
and scan the terminal on the other side to activate the fan.  Exit the tunnel
and grab the energy tank from where the grate used to be.

------------------
Hall of the Elders (Chozo Ruins)
------------------

Use your Ice Beam to gain access to the white bomb slot above and behind the
large Chozo statue, then turn into a ball on the Chozo statue's hands to get to
the alcove with the energy tank.

----------------
Training Chamber (Chozo Ruins)
----------------

Use the halfpipe in the middle of the room to reach the bomb slot that
activates the piston thing on the wall, then quickly use the piston to reach
the spider ball tracks on the ceiling.  Follow them to the energy tank.

----------------
Transport Access (Phendrana Drifts)
----------------

Use the Plasma Beam to break the ice off of the morph ball path on the wall,
then just grab the energy tank.

------------------------
Processing Center Access (Phazon Mines)
------------------------

It's just sitting there waiting for you to take it if you enter the room from
Elite Quarters.

----------
Magma Pool (Chozo Ruins)
----------

Use a power bomb to destroy the large section of weak wall by the Wave Beam
door and grab the expansion.

------------
Fiery Shores (Magmoor Caverns)
------------

Use a power bomb on the weak spot on the floor in front of the Chozo statue in
the Warrior Shrine, then roll through the tunnel into Fiery Shores.  The
expansion is just sitting there for you.

The previous sections listed the expansions in the order you'd encounter them
if you were playing the game along a path close to the one I used when I wrote
the guide, and information was included with each entry to tell you how to get
the expansion.

In the following sections, I'll simply break down each type of expansion by
area, with the names of each room in each area listed alphabetically (numbers
after a room's name mean that the room contains more than one of a specific
type of expansion).

 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

There're 49 missile expansions in the game, and the original missile launcher
gives you five missiles as well.  Therefore, when you've found all of the
expansions in the game, you should have a total of 250 missiles.

fill all the spots in your Log Book.  Some things can always be found and
scanned, but other things can only be scanned during a certain period during
the game.  It is therefore very important that you're always on the lookout for
things to scan.

Metroid Prime  [Elite Control - Phazon Mines]
=============

Space Pirate encrypted data decoded.

 - Log 11.156.9

Test subject Z-d, hereafter referred to as Metroid Prime, was recently
discovered in a cavern by mining crews.  It quickly dispatched the miners, but
was eventually contained by security units and drones.  Once contained, we were
able to begin studies upon Metroid Prime.  The results have been astonishing.
It is genetically similar to Metroids, albeit on a highly evolved level.  It
displays a limitless capacity for Phazon infusion and shows no Phazon-based
degeneration whatsoever.  It continues to grow in size, and while it has
manifested some psychotic behavior, the cold fields we use to pacify remain
effective.  Authorization for advanced studies on Metroid Prime have been
approved.

=============
Mining Status  [Research Lab Hydra - Phendrana Drifts]
=============

Space Pirate encrypted data decoded.

 - Log 10.587.7

Mining operations have begun near the crater where Phazon appears to be most
concentrated.  Daily Phazon yields have increased 44%, and our mining system
becomes more streamlined as personnel and equipment flows increase.  Several
incidents of Phazon-induced madness have been reported, prompting augmented
life-support regulations in the deeper chambers.  Symptoms include loss of
equilibrium, erratic respiration, muscle spasms, and in the most extreme cases,
hallucinations.  A timeline reassessment for the refinery operation is
recommended, as the material proves more unstable than initial analysis
indicated.

=============
Artifact Site  [Temple Security Station - Tallon Overworld]
=============

Space Pirate encrypted data decoded.

 - Log 10.308.0

Field team reports are in on an aged structure of alien design built on the
surface of Tallon IV.  Studies show this structure projects a containment
field.  This field bars access to a prime source of energy within a deep
crater.  Science Team believes the field is powered by a number of strange
Chozo Artifacts.  We have found some of these relics and studies on them have
begun.  As this field could hinder future energy production operations on
Tallon IV, we must dismantle it as soon as possible.  If this means the
destruction of the Chozo Artifacts, it will be done.

==============
Special Forces  [Metroid Quarantine B - Phazon Mines]
==============

Space Pirate encrypted data decoded.

 - Log 11.369.4

As we continue to observe the development of Project Helix's Elite Pirates, it
becomes increasingly obvious that these warriors will usher in a new era of
Space Pirate dominance.  They are incredibly resistant to damage, and their
ability to transport and wield so many weapons at once makes them the ideal
mainstays of our ground forces.  Though they are not as quick as typical
Pirates, it makes little difference.  With a platoon of Elite Pirates in the
vanguard of an army of normal and Flying Pirates, we will have a
near-indestructible backbone that should turn the tide in any engagement.

==============
Metroid Forces  [Research Lab Aether - Phendrana Drifts]
==============

Space Pirate encrypted data decoded.

 - Log 11.550.6

Studies of Metroid biology continue, though with limited progress.  It seems
likely that we will be much more successful using the Metroids for our means
rather than trying to reproduce their powers.  If they could be adequately
tamed, we would have no need of a proper understanding of their metabolism.  A
small force of disciplined Metroids could wipe out entire armies, and once we
find a way to shield them from cold-containment weapons, they will be
invincible.  Furthermore, if we could then harvest the energy they'd consumed,
we would have a near-limitless source of power at our disposal.

=============
Chozo Studies  [Elite Control - Phazon Mines]
=============

Space Pirate encrypted data decoded.

 - Log 11.440.4

Results are in from field studies on extinct bioform group Chozo.  We believe
that Tallon IV was once a stronghold in a great Chozo empire, brought low by
the meteor strike.  Planetary devastation brought an end to the Chozo, yet
remnants of their society remain.  We are studying these relics in an attempt
to harness their power.  What is of no use to us, we destroy.  In time, we
shall have all we need from this dead race, and shall wipe this planet clean
of their ugly Ruins.  The dead should serve the living, not hinder them.

Fall of Zebes  [Biohazard Containment - Space Pirate Frigate]
=============

Space Pirate encrypted data decoded.

 - Log 09.992.3

Zebes has fallen.  All ground personnel are presumed dead, either killed by the
Hunter clad in metal or in the subsequent destruction of the underground
facilities.  Our research frigates Orpheon, Siriacus and Vol Paragom were in
orbit at zero hour and managed to retreat.  Frigate Orpheon is now docked at
Vortex Outpost.  Orpheon's cargo appears to have a 100% survival rate:
Metroids are healthy but on restricted feeding schedules due to uncertain
supply status.  We are ready to begin research on the Metroids and other
promising life-forms.  Security status remains at Code Blue:  no signs of
pursuit from the Hunter.

===============
Prime Mutations  [Elite Control - Phazon Mines]
===============

Space Pirate encrypted data decoded.

 - Log 11.402.5

Metroid Prime continues to feed and grow ever larger in the impact crater
caves.  Its hunger knows no bounds, and it has begun to manifest unusual
mutations since its breach.  These include armor plating on its epidermis and
mechanical outgrowths that generate defense screens.  These screens render it
invulnerable to most weapon systems, but a flaw in the mutation leads to
increased vulnerability to certain weapons.  It compensates for this by
shifting the screens quickly.  This latest development concerns Security units
greatly:  they feel it's a matter of time before Prime corrects this defect and
renders itself invulnerable to all weaponry.  Containment would be nigh
impossible if this were to occur.

=================
Security Breaches  [Research Lab Hydra - Phendrana Drifts]
=================

Space Pirate encrypted data decoded.

 - Log 10.712.1

Most terraforming and retrofitting of security checkpoints on Tallon IV is
complete, but we continue to research the alarming epidemic of breaches by
local creatures.  Door records show no unauthorized entries, so we must presume
the creatures are either slipping in undetected during daily personnel moves or
else finding their way in through subterranean tunnels.  We have found many
small breaches of this latter sort and plug them whenever we can, but it is
unlikely that we will ever achieve full extermination within our current
timetable.

===============
Phazon Analysis  [Research Lab Hydra - Phendrana Drifts]
===============

Space Pirate encrypted data decoded.

 - Log 10.344.8

We have codified the newfound energy source as Phazon, a V-index mutagen of
which we have very little reliable data.  Indications point to a meteor of
unknown origin impacting approximately 20 years ago, expelling Phazon into the
environment.  This material appears to possess lifelike characteristics,
mutating organic life-forms strong enough to withstand its poison.  These
mutations appear promising, with abrupt evolutionary leaps appearing in
single-generation reproduction.  Plans to establish a full Science Team on
Tallon IV are being finalized.

============
Omega Pirate  [Omega Research - Phazon Mines]
============

Space Pirate encrypted data decoded.

 - Log 11.232.8

Elite Pirate Upsilon's propensity for Phazon has enabled our research team to
infuse it far beyond our safety restrictions, and the results have been
extremely encouraging.  Its constant Phazon diet has increased its mass
exponentially, but it has retained all mental faculties and shows dexterity
with all Elite weaponry, including Plasma Incendiary Launchers and the
Chameleon Manta issued for cloaking purposes.  Elite Pirate Upsilon exhibits
miraculous healing abilities:  when injured, it seeks out Phazon deposits and
coats itself in the substance, which instantly mends the creature's wounds.
The subject, which we are code-naming Omega Pirate based on these developments,
shows potential to be a new standard for our armies.  Our only concern at this
point is its potential overdependence on Phazon.

Scans of the Spiral Sector detected a massive energy spike emanating from a
Wanderer-class planet identified as Tallon IV.  Scout reconnaissance was
immediately dispatched to the center of the spike, a land mass at heading mark
40.08.02, returning with planetary samples and atmospheric imaging.  Analysis
shows the energy source to be an unstable radioactive material of enormous
potential.  We are unable to form an accurate risk-assessment at this time, but
we are unlikely to find an energy source this powerful again.  Analysis will
continue, but currently Tallon IV appears to be a viable secondary
headquarters.

============
Chozo Ghosts  [Elite Control - Phazon Mines]
============

Space Pirate encrypted data decoded.

 - Log 11.664.2

There have been numerous incidents involving spectral entities at Chozo Ruins
sites.  Several personnel have been assaulted by these Chozo Ghosts:  few have
survived.  Survivors speak of swift attacks from nowhere, brief sightings of
the enemy, then nothing, only to be followed by another attack.  Science Team
believes these attacks are in response to our efforts to recover Chozo relics
and Artifacts.  Somehow, these entities are able to interact with the physical
world, and it appears they wish to keep their Artifacts to themselves.  We will
make them pay for such arrogance, for even ghosts can be destroyed.

============
Prime Breach  [Elite Control - Phazon Mines]
============

Space Pirate encrypted data decoded.

 - Log 11.377.1

Subject Metroid Prime's breach has been contained.  Reports indicate that it
sensed a large batch of raw Phazon in the lab from with its stasis tank and
broke through the glass, using previously unsuspected strength.  Besides
consuming all of the Phazon, Metroid Prime assimilated several weapons and
defense systems from fallen security units.  It has suffered no ill effects
from said assimilation:  indeed, it began to use its newly acquired weapons
against us.  Once we pacified it, we were unable to remove the assimilated gear
without threat to Metroid Prime -- the gear is now an integral part of its
body.  Command is intrigued by this newfound ability, and has ordered further
study to commence at once.

 - Log 10.515.8

Our initial tests exposing Tallon IVs indigenous parasites to Phazon appear to
be successful.  Increases in strength, size, and aggressiveness are common in
all test subjects, as well as unforeseen evolutions like additional poison
sacks within the abdomen and the appearance of a second ring of mandibles in
several subjects.  These creatures were chosen because of their resilience, and
it appears possible that, given enough exposure to Phazon, they may one day be
able to survive on any planet we transport them to.  Our methods will have to
be refined:  we currently have a 100% extinction rate after the fourth infusion
period, and most survivors of the third infusion stage are so violent and
uncontrollable that they have to be euthanized.  Even still, we remain hopeful
that further experimentation will result in success.

 - Log 10.891.0

The reconstruction of geoform 187, code-named Ridley, was recently completed.
After his defeat on Zebes, Command ordered a number of metagenetic improvements
for him.  Though aggressive, we were able to implement these changes in a
cycle.  The metamorphosis was painful, but quite successful in the end.  Early
tests indicate a drastic increase in strength, mobility, and offensive
capability.  Cybernetic modules and armor plating have been added as well.  We
believe our creation, now called Meta Ridley, will become the mainstay of our
security force, a job he will certainly relish.

Phazon mining is under way.  Several garrisons have been established, and
terraforming of the Chozo Ruins is under way.  Security systems are
operational, and Science Team continues to make progress in their biotech
research.  The Phendrana Drifts have proven to be an optimal location for
Research Headquarters, and soon it will be joined by a fully operational Combat

Metroid dissection continues to provide more questions than answers.  Our
research teams have isolated the energy conduits that run from the invasive
twin mandibles to the energy core in the creature's quadripartite nucleus, but
the manner in which a Metroid actually extracts the life force from its prey
remains an utter mystery.  The victim does not lose blood or any other vital
fluids, and yet the Metroid extracts energy:  identifying this energy is our
central problem.  It takes no physical form, and yet without it, the victim
dies.  We will continue to research this matter, as the isolation of this
life-giving essence could be the key to our ascendance.

Chozo Artifacts  [Elite Control - Phazon Mines]
===============

Space Pirate encrypted data decoded.

 - Log 11.452.8

We are particularly interested in a number of curious Chozo Artifacts we have
been able to recover from a number of religious sites on Tallon IV.  These
relics resonate with power, and yet we are unable to harness them in any way.
Science Team is attempting to fuse them together with Phazon, believing that a
link might exist between them.  We know that these Artifacts are linked to the
Chozo Temple that blocks full access to the Impact Crater.  We have yet to
crack this enigma, however.  Command grows impatient regarding this matter:
results must be produced soon.

===============
Phazon Infusion  [Research Lab Aether - Phendrana Drifts]
===============

Space Pirate encrypted data decoded.

 - Log 10.957.2

Confidence is high regarding Phazon applications.  We know enough about Phazon
now to begin combining it with Space Pirate DNA.  The code name for this
venture will be 'Project Helix'.  Preliminary studies indicate that Phazon
infusion could produce radical new Pirate genomes.  Benevolent mutation levels
are high in current test subjects.  Phazon madness is a concern, but
refinements in the infusion process should reduce or neutralize the odds of
mental degeneration.

Metroid Studies  [Research Lab Aether - Phendrana Drifts]
===============

Space Pirate encrypted data decoded.

 - Log 10.444.4

Initial transfer of Metroids to Tallon IV research facilities has been
completed.  Three were terminated in an incident at the landing site, but the
others were pacified and transported safely.  Initial Phazon-infusion testing
is under way.  We are eager to observe the effects of Phazon on Metroids,
especially their ability to absorb and process the energy given off by Phazon
sources.  Early research suggests a considerable growth in power and size.
Whether the creatures stay stable thereafter remains to be seen.

==========
The Hunter  [Elite Control - Phazon Mines]
==========

Space Pirate encrypted data decoded.

 - Log 10.023.7

Security Command issued an all-points alert after the fall of Zebes.  The alert
concerns bioform Samus Aran, also known as the Hunter.  Subject is a female
hominid, and is heavily armed and extremely dangerous.  Subject uses a powered
armorsuit of unknown design in battle, along with a number of potent Beam and
concussive weapons.  All combat units are instructed to terminate Aran on
sight, preferably in a fashion that will allow salvage of her powered armorsuit
and weapons.  A considerable bounty will go to the unit who delivers Aran to
Command.  Dead or alive, it matters not.

=============
Elite Pirates  [Elite Research - Phazon Mines]
=============

Space Pirate encrypted data decoded.

 - Log 11.001.9

Initial Project Helix experiments with Space Pirate embryos were disastrous.
The Phazon-infusion process degenerated brain tissue even as it augmented
muscle mass.  None of what we have termed 'Elite Pirates' lived to maturity:
the few that survived their infanthood suffered severe psychotic breakdowns as
juveniles, killing anything within their zone of perception.  Research team
Sciera made a recent breakthrough, in which parasite studies with a Phazon
strain code-named 'Vertigo' were highly successful.  Since then, we have fused
Vertigo Phazon with Space Pirate DNA with great success.  The latest batch of
Elite Pirates have reached maturity successfully and are ready for field
testing and training.

==============
Glacial Wastes  [Research Lab Hydra - Phendrana Drifts]
==============

Space Pirate encrypted data decoded.

 - Log 10.664.2

Research outpost Glacier One in the Phendrana Drifts region of Tallon IV's
mountains is operating at 85% capacity.  Sub-zero temperatures have made the
Metroids sluggish and easy to control, even those well into Phazon-infusion
cycles.  Cold-containment stasis tanks are sufficient for the juveniles, but
some of the larger Metroids have been moved to quarantined caves for safety
purposes.  Security doors remain an issue, as malfunctions due to ice occur
every day.  Large predators in the wastes are also a concern, as they continue
to kill personnel and breach secure areas.  Unfortunately, it has become clear
that our containment teams cannot neutralize all of them without a vast
increase in munitions and soldiers.

==============
Hunter Weapons  [Elite Control - Phazon Mines]
==============

Space Pirate encrypted data decoded.

 - Log 11.222.8

Science Team is attempting to reverse-engineer Samus Aran's arsenal, based off
of data acquired from her assaults on our forces.  Progress is slow, but
steady.  Command would dearly enjoy turning Aran's weapons against her.  We
believe we can implement Beam weapon prototypes in three cycles.  Aran's Power
Suit technology remains a mystery, especially the curious Morph Ball function.
All attempts at duplicating it have ended in disaster:  four test subjects were
horribly broken and twisted when they engaged our Morph Ball prototypes.
Science Team wisely decided to move on afterward.

===========
Infestation  [Crossway - Chozo Ruins]
===========

Chozo script translated.

A second plague has come upon the land, dousing the last flickering hopes of
our race.  Drawn by the very force we Chozo hoped to contain, a host of
marauding creatures descended from space and invaded our temple, the Cradle.
They try in vain to destroy it, but its power remains beyond them for now.
They possess some of the twelve Artifacts we call the Cipher, yet do not
comprehend their function.  Ignorant creatures, they are blinded by delusions
of harnessing the Great Poison for their own designs.  They walk about as
masters of the planet, assimilating the ruins of our sanctuary into their
experiments.  We can but watch and wait for our doom.

=======
Binding  [Artifact Temple - Chozo Ruins]
=======

Chozo script translated.

The congregation of Artifacts that hold the Great Poison at bay still hold
strong.  Fearful of the potential within the Artifact Temple, the invaders
known as Space Pirates tried to destroy it, only to fail in every attempt.  We
scattered the Artifacts across the planet for their protection, and only a few
have fallen into invader hands.  Failing to understand them, they now seek to
unmake them.  Again, they fail.  They are right to fear these things.  Great
power sleeps inside them.  Prophecy calls for their union, come the day that
the unholy Worm is met by the great Defender.  We can only hope the Artifacts
are not destroyed by the invader, for then all will be lost.  So, we do what we
can to preserve the Artifacts, and to guide the Newborn to them.  Time wanes
with our soules, yet hope remains.

======
Cradle  [Furnace - Chozo Ruins]
======

Chozo script translated.

The cries of this dying land pulled us from our dreaming state, and now we
Chozo walk as ghosts while the Great Poison sinks into the trees and waters,
devouring all life.  Some creatures survive, but their forms grow as twisted
and evil as the force that fell from the sky.  The heart of the planet will
succumb soon, and so will we, even in our ghostly states.  Already many Chozo
have faded and passed into the unknown.  The Great Poison is unlike anything we
have glimpsed in this or any dimension.  It eats relentlessly, worming out life
wherever it blooms and corrupting what it cannot kill.  It will be our undoing.
Our last hope lies in the Cradle, the temple we hope might contain this
abomination.  It is almost complete, hovering over the impact site, the dark
heart of the spreading evil.  If we can finish before the last of our kind
drifts into madness or death, there is a chance for this world.  If we fail, we
are doomed with it.

==========
Beginnings  [Vault - Chozo Ruins]
==========

Chozo script translated.

Our sanctuary grows by the day.  We Chozo know much of technology, but we have
chosen to leave it behind on this journey.  Our home here on Tallon IV will be
a place of simplicity:  structures hewn from the stone, bridges woven with
branches, hallways caressed by pure waters.  We build around the ancient and
noble trees, drawing from their strength and giving them our own in return.
All that is wild will flow around us here:  our race will be just one more
group of creatures in the knit of nature.  It is our hope that such a state
will bring with it great wisdom, a greater understanding of the nature of the
universe.  Once our city here is complete, we will peer inward and discover the
truth.

======
Cipher  [Ice Ruins West - Phendrana Drifts]
======

Chozo script translated.

None know if our temple, the Cradle, will prove powerful enough to contain this
evil forever.  How can we Chozo hope for it to remain intact when that which it
guards writhes in the darkness, growing always stronger?  The fate of this
world rests with the gathering of Artifacts we call the Cipher, but even it is
not all-powerful.  It is strong, yes:  an enchanted whole made of twelve links.
Still, it is finite in its reach, and we who guard it are slowly succumbing.
When our vigilance crumbles away into madness, the Cipher will be exposed and
the fate of Tallon IV will be beyond our influence.

====
Worm  [Crossway - Chozo Ruins]
====

Chozo script translated.

The prophecies tell of the coming of the Worm.  Born from parasites, nurtured
in a poisoned womb, the Worm grows, devouring from within, until the world
begins to rot.  The words of the seers have come to pass, for there, in the
depths of the world, the ravenous Worm lurks and feeds.  From the stars it
came, blighting Tallon with its Great Poison.  We can but watch as the Worm
grows, watch and wait.  For the prophecies also speak of a great Defender, the
one who delivers the world from evil.  The final days draw near.  Is the
Newborn the Defender of which the seers spoke?  We shall do all that we can to
aid her, for she bears our legacy as she bears the ancient armor and weapons of
our people.

========
Fountain  [Ruins Entrance - Chozo Ruins]
========

Chozo script translated.

At the highest point of our city lies the fountain, a wellspring of pure water
that flows throughout our civilization.  It is the jewel of the Chozo, the
life-giver, and yet its waters speak of a clouded future.  As we come to
understand the paths of time and space more clearly, we have begun to glimpse
rough tatters of past and future, glittering behind reality like soft lights
behind a curtain.  We have seen the fountain in these glimpses, pouring
darkness instead of water, and we cannot guess what the visions mean.

======
Exodus  [Ruined Nursery - Chozo Ruins]
======

Chozo script translated.

We Chozo are departing now, after so many years in peaceful seclusion here on
Tallon IV.  When we came, this place was a refuge for our spirits, a
civilization built from native materials, bereft of the trappings of our
technology.  We were linked to the land here, kindred to the plants and
animals, far away from the machines we had become so dependent on.  And so we
leave it now, pristine, a testament to the mortal forms we no longer need.  We
have drawn the veils of time and space aside, and are withdrawing beyond the
illusion.  But we will never forget this, the most sacred of our homes.  And we
will remain ever watchful.

=================
Hatchling's Shell  [Crossway - Chozo Ruins]
=================

Chozo script translated.

The Hatchling walks among us.  Are these dreams?  Memories?  Foretellings?
Time and reality swirl together like estuary waters, and we Chozo know not what
to believe.  She appears as ghostlike as the Chozo, but at times the mists
clear.  We see her wounded eyes, and remember the child we found so long ago.
What has she become, this Newborn?  Clad in Chozo armor, wielding weapons our
hands once held, does she dream of the Chozo as we once were?  Does she long
for her parents, lost to the same creatures that even now defile our sacred
home?  Does she still live?

=========
Hatchling  [Ruined Fountain - Chozo Ruins]
=========

Chozo script translated.

As we struggle with the Great Poison, something stirs at the edges of our
vision.  It is the Hatchling Samus.  We feel her, across the void, as she hunts
the corrupted.  Will our fates again be one?  As our pride shatters, will
prophecy become real?  When all strength wanes from the Chozo, will it be the
Hatchling who fulfills our legacy?  True sight eludes us, for the Poison gnaws
at all vision, leaving seers blind and filled with despair.  Truth's blessing
may come too late.

=============
Meteor Strike  [Watery Hall - Chozo Ruins]
=============

Chozo script translated.

We have returned to Tallon IV, borne here against our will by a great cataclysm
from the reaches of space.  A meteor came, casting a dark shadow of debris over
the land with the violence of its impact.  Through we perceived this from
beyond space and time, it was but a curiosity:  a brief flare in the infinite
march of the universe.  But the meteor brought with it corruption.  A Great
Poison burst forth into the land, clawing at life with such violence that we
were ripped from our peaceful state and find ourselves wandering as shadows of
the mortal forms we left behind, searching for why we are here.

=======
Contain  [Sun Tower - Chozo Ruins]
=======

Chozo script translated.

The world of living things feels strange to us, we who have existed so long on
the edges of time and space.  It is clear now that we Chozo can never return to
our dimension, not while the Great Poison reaches ever further into the planet.
It is so powerful, this creeping evil, that our wills are crumbling and our
minds beginning to fail.  And so, before it is too late, we now make our last
stand.  We have begun to build a temple to contain this darkness:  at its heart
we will place a Cipher, a mystical lock powered by twelve Artifacts and filled
with as much power as we Chozo can harness in our ethereal states.  Even when
we are done, it may be too late.

==========
The Turned  [Phendrana Canyon - Phendrana Drifts]
==========

Chozo script translated.

Many Chozo have gone beyond now, and this is a mercy.  Those of us who remain
suffer in dimensional flux, drifting helplessly across time and space, guided
by unseen and inexorable currents.  The Chozo who cling to sanity fight the
tide, but our minds are weakening.  Soon we will all be like the Turned, Chozo
who have been utterly corrupted by the Great Poison.  The Turned still hold to
their Chozo forms, but their minds are black with fell intentions.  Gone is
their respect for life.  They honor only destruction, and seek to disrupt the
Artifacts holding the Great Poison at bay.  All life taunts them, and they do
not rest.  Before long, they will be all that remain of the Chozo here.

====
Hope  [Hall of the Elders - Chozo Ruins]
====

Chozo script translated.

More and more, our tormented minds turn to the Newborn.  As the world continues
to shift into brutal, disconnected images, she remains inarguably real:  a
fearless figure delving deeper into this blighted world, unmindful of the
terrors that await her.  Was she this way before?  When we Chozo found her, a
fledgling orphaned on a savaged planet, did a warriors [sic] pulse already beat
in her veins, filling her with righteous fury?  Our hopes lie with her.  We
leave these messages for her, that she may find our Artifacts and deliver the
world from its evils.  Wraiths we may be, but our reach is still long indeed.
We shall fight the invaders, and the Poison they would master, until the end.

========
Statuary  [Artifact Temple - Chozo Ruins]
========

Chozo script translated.

As we have done for millennia, we Chozo work constantly on our statuary.  The
statues are our sentinels:  blind but ever watchful, they are, and have always
been, repositories for our most precious secrets and strongest powers.  The
crafting of each is a long and sacred process, performed only by those Chozo
who have lifetimes of experience in such things.  We have left these relics on
planets across the solar system.  Some are merely reminders:  silent emblems of
the Chozo that serve as icons of peace in lands that know only war.  Others
wield subtle strength, exerting their influence in ways beyond the
understanding of mortal creatures.  Still others are guardians of our secret
ways, and these can be as terrible as they are beautiful.  Those who respect
and honor these relics will know the friendship of the Chozo.  Those who deface
or destroy them will know our wrath, unfettered and raw.

=======
Newborn  [Magma Pool - Chozo Ruins]
=======

Chozo script translated.

The power of our temple has been enough to halt the spread of the poison on
Tallon IV, but that which remains thrives and grows more concentrated, gnawing
on itself in the dark passages beneath the planet's surface.  Whether it can
ever be truly destroyed is not for our eyes to see.  But there is something
else.  We Chozo are drifting, tumbling through space and time as the Great
Poison eats away at our sanity.  We wake in dreams.  As the veil of lunacy
descends, as past and future blend and shuffle, one image appears and flickers
through the landscape, wraithlike.  It is the Hatchling, the Newborn, walking
the path of corruption, a lone figure shining in the toxic shadows.  She comes
dressed for war, and her wrath is terrible.  Do our eyes look backward, seeing
the Hatchling as she once was?  Or does she approach even now, arriving in our
race's last hour, a savior clothed in machines crafted long ago by Chozo hands?
Poisonous clouds drift across our vision.

Some creatures are unique and can only be found in one location, but others can
be found in several places.  The locations I've listed next to each entry are
just one possible spot where each entry can definitely be found (or in the case
of unique entries, the only place they can be found).

===========
Mega Turret  [Security Access A - Phazon Mines]
===========

Mechanism:  Mega Turret

Perimeter defense turret reinforced with energy shielding.

Frustrated with inferior armor plating on standard defense turrets, the Space
Pirates added energy shielding to a modified heavy Cannon.  The new shielding
and increased Beam strength makes the Mega Turret an efficient point defense
weapon.

======
Grizby  [Burning Trail - Magmoor Caverns]
======

Morphology:  Grizby

Subvolcanic carrion feeder.  Carapace can be breached by Missiles.

The Grizby's carapace has been fused together by superheated air.  This barrier
stands up to everything but concussive blasts.  Its intelligence is limited to
instinctive scavenging patterns.

======
Zoomer  [Tallon Canyon - Tallon Overworld]
======

Morphology:  Zoomer

Anchors itself to walls and other surfaces.  Avoid contact with spikes.

A basic nerve center located directly above the Zoomer's mandibles detects
nutrients.  Sharp spines protect it from casual predators, but the lack of a
reinforced carapace makes the Zoomer vulnerable to any indirect attacks.

===============
Plated Parasite  [Furnace - Chozo Ruins]
===============

Morphology:  Plated Parasite

Hardy member of the Parasite family.  Invulnerable to most weaponry.

A cousin to the Parasite, these creatures are known for their amazing
resilience.  Field studies suggest a weakness to Morph Ball-delivered weapon
systems.

===========
Pulse Bombu  [Sun Tower Access - Chozo Ruins]
===========

Morphology:  Pulse Bombu

Life-form of raw energy.  Periodically releases explosive segments from its
body.

Pulse Bombus are energy beings, invulnerable to most known weapons.  Electrical
energy can harm them, however.  They lack any intelligence beyond an
instinctive attraction to other charged energy sources.  Pulse Bombus produce
energy constantly.  All excess energy is shed, regardless of who or what may be
nearby.

=============
Ice Shriekbat  [Ice Ruins West - Phendrana Drifts]
=============

Morphology:  Ise Shriekbats

Ice-encased ceiling-dweller.

Like standard Shriekbats, these creatures are easily spotted with Thermal
Imaging.  They roost on cave ceilings, subsisting on insects, reptiles and
small mammals.  Fiercely territorial, they will dive-bomb anything that wanders
near.

==============
Parasite Queen  [Reactor Core - Space Pirate Frigate]
==============

Morphology:  Parasite Queen

Parasite female, genetically enhanced by unknown means.

A weak spot has been detected in this creature's mouth.  Use your
auto-targeting to acquire this new target!

Scans indicate the presence of a potent mutagen, origins unknown.  Creature
exhibits the ability to fire weapon-grade blasts of energy from its mouth, a
trait not present in the standard parasite genome.  It appears the Pirates have
begun a bioengineering program, with considerable results.

======
Scarab  [Nursery Access - Chozo Ruins]
======

Morphology:  Scarab

Exploding parasites that can embed their bodies in solid rock.

Scarabs think nothing of sacrificing themselves for the safety of their swarm.
When a hostile life-form is sighted, they block its progress by embedding
themselves in floors and walls.  Embedded Scarabs violently self-destruct when
threatened.

===========
Aqua Reaper  [Gravity Chamber - Phendrana Drifts]
===========

Morphology:  Aqua Reaper

Powerful aquatic tentacle, part of a submerged organism.

Similar in nature to the surface-based Reaper Vine, the Aqua Reaper has
adapted to a liquid environment.  It shares the poor vision of its
rock-dwelling 'cousin,' relying on a crude sonar sense to seek prey.
Unhindered by water, the Aqua Reaper has considerable speed and strength.

========
Triclops  [Pit Tunnel - Magmoor Cavern]
========

Morphology:  Triclops

Hard-shelled creature with powerful jaws.

The Triclops is a hunter-gatherer.  It collects small creatures and bits of
floodstuff, then deposits them elsewhere for later consumption.  The hard
tripartite mandibles it uses to move earth and rock are quite strong and
difficult to escape once ensnared.

======
Puffer  [Lava Lake - Magmoor Cavern]
======

Morphology:  Puffer

Unstable gas-filled organism.  Will rupture on contact.

Puffers fill their bodies with lethal meta-viprium gas and float about in
search of food.  If ruptured, the gas within the Puffer is violently released.
Despite their fragile bodies, Puffers are aggressive hunters.  The gas cloud
they release upon their death is often fatal to the creature that brings them
down as well.

======
Glider  [Frost Cave - Phendrana Drifts]
======

Morphology:  Glider

Docile, airborne creatures with unusual magnetic properties.

Gliders live a relatively peaceful existence.  They have a magnetic signature
attuned to common Grapple Beam technology:  the sport of 'glider riding'
involves using a Grapple to attach to a Glider, then staying on it as long as
possible.

===========
Auto Turret  [Deck Beta Security Hall - Space Pirate Frigate]
===========

Subject >> Auto Defense Turret

Use Missiles to break outer casing.

======
Jelzap  [Phendrana's Edge - Phendrana Drifts]
======

Morphology:  Jelzap

Aquatic predator made of electrically bound skeletal halves.

The Jelzap's brain is located in the upper half of its body, while the heart
and digestive tract occupy the lower half.  Linked only by electrical impulses,
the two halves somehow function effectively enough to launch the Jelzap to the
top of Tallon IV's aquatic food chain.

======
Beetle  [Canyon Cavern - Tallon Overworld]
======

Morphology:  Beetle

Burrowing insect with a resilient carapace.  Extremely aggressive.

Insect's massive mouth enables it to tunnel through solid rock at high speeds.
Above ground, Beetles can cover short distances rapidly.  They attack anything
that moves near their lair.

===========
Tangle Weed  [Landing Site - Tallon Overworld]
===========

Morphology:  Tangle Weed

Plant lifewith basic sentience.  Retracts into ground if threatened.

Tangle Weeds are only dangerous to small organisms.  They are covered in tiny
barbs designed to trap potential meals.  Tangle Weeds lack the strength to do
anything more than hinder larger life-forms.

=============
Flying Pirate  [Control Tower - Phendrana Drifts]
=============

Morphology:  Flying Pirate

Pirates trained and equipped for airborne assault.

Flying Pirates are extremely agile in the air, but the heat signatures of
their jet packs can be tracked with Thermal Imaging.  While their Missiles are
extremely potent, their jet packs can be even more so.  If the pack fails, they
will make a suicide strike.

==========
Hive Mecha  [Hive Totem - Chozo Ruins]
==========

Mechanoid:  Hive Mecha

Security unit programmed to work with predatory hive dwellers.

A design flaw makes the shielding on Hive Mecha weak around their access ports.
These units are second-generation combat drones, able to interface with
organic units at a higher level.  They train, shelter, and work with
hive-dwelling predators.  Unarmed, they rely on their hive beasts to handle any
threats.

========
War Wasp  [Ruined Nursery - Chozo Ruins]
========

Morphology:  War Wasp

Airborne insect equipped with a venomous stinger capable of shearing steel.

The War Wasp rarely strays far from its hive unless it is pursuing an
immediate threat.  It attacks with no regard for its own survival, dive-bombing
its enemy with stinger extended.  Fast-working toxins from the stinger can
incapacitate most small organisms.

===========
Bloodflower  [Root Cave - Tallon Overworld]
===========

Morphology:  Bloodflower

Able to eject toxic spores.  Toxins are poisonous even to the Bloodflower
itself.

Three mouth-nodules protrude from the stalk beneath the flower, each with a
rudimentary brain cluster and the ability to spew toxic fumes at anything
within a five-meter radius.  The spores ejected from the stigma at the center
of the flower are sufficient to kill this creature if they explode in its
vicinity.

==========
Ice Beetle  [Research Core Access - Phendrana Overworld]
==========

Morphology:  Ice Beetle

Burrowing insect with an ice-reinforced carapace.  Averse to heat.

This member of the Beetle family has adapted to life in the subzero
temperatures in the Phendrana Drifts, growing a thick ice shell over its entire
body.  The ice is extremely resilient, providing the Ice Beetle with extra
protection and augmented digging abilities.

===========
Reaper Vine  [Arboretum - Chozo Ruins]
===========

Morphology:  Reaper Vine

Powerful rock-dwelling tentacle.

A single eye upon the Reaper Vine keeps a constant vigil, but its vision is
limited to 10 meters.  A scythe-like appendage on its tip is honed to lethal
sharpness.  The Reaper Vine will swing this blade wildly at anything that
enters its zone of perception.

==========
Aqua Drone  [Biohazard Containment - Tallon Overworld]
==========

Mechanoid:  Aqua Drone

Security mecha adapted for use in underwater areas.

The Space Pirates have adapted a number of Sentry Drones for use in liquid
environments.  These Aqua Drones utilize an arsenal and artificial intelligence
suit similar to their 'cousins.'  The Pirates have been unable to properly
shield these Drones from electrical attack, making them vulnerable to the Wave
Beam.

===========
Ice Trooper  [Elite Control - Phazon Mines]
===========

Morphology:  Ice Trooper

Space Pirate armed with Ice Beam technology.

Space Pirates have reverse-engineered several of your weapons, including the
Ice Beam.  A flaw in the design makes these Pirates vulnerable to their own
Beam weapon system.  These weapons are inferior to your Chozo-designed
originals, but still quite potent.

=======
Sap Sac  [Tallon Canyon - Tallon Overworld]
=======

Species:  Sap Sac

Chemical reaction within sac produces violent explosion when agitated.

Because of its irresistible odor and sweet nectar, the Sap Sac was nearly eaten
out of existence.  The evolution of an explosive chemical sac saved it:  now
only brave or ingenious creatures dare to devour it.

==========
Flickerbat  [Phendrana Shorelines - Phendrana Drifts]
==========

Morphology:  Flickerbat

Scavenger with optical camouflaging that renders it invisible to the naked eye.

Flickerbats are deceptive creatures.  The only way to track them reliably is
with x-ray imaging.  They fly ceaselessly, hunting insects and other small prey
that float on the air currents.  Flickerbats tend to fly in cyclical hunting
patterns, using primitive sonar to navigate.

============
Wave Trooper  [Mine Security Station - Phazon Mines]
============

Morphology:  Wave Trooper

Space Pirate armed with Wave Beam technology.

Space Pirates have reverse-engineered several of your weapons, including the
Wave Beam.  A flaw in the design makes these Pirates vulnerable to their own
Beam weapon system.  These weapons are inferior to your Chozo-designed
originals, but still quite potent.

============
Sentry Drone  [Research Core Access - Phendrana Drifts]
============

Mechanoid:  Sentry Drone

Well-armed and armored security mecha.

Sentry Drones have limited intelligence, but do their assigned tasks well.
Being machines, they are susceptible to electrical attacks.  When alerted,
Drones initiate a security lockdown, then attempt to neutralize the intruder.
Their electronic warfare suit can scramble Visor technology as well.

========
Burrower  [Lake Tunnel - Magmoor Caverns]
========

Morphology:  Burrower

Tunneling insect predator.

The Burrower is similar to the Beetle, though it prefers to spend more time
underground.  It seeks seismic disturbances, then surfaces to attack.  It has
enough cunning to realize when something is too large for it to handle:  beyond
that, it is fairly ignorant.  What it lacks in brains, it makes up for with
aggression.

========
Plazmite  [Totem Access - Chozo Ruins]
========

Morphology:  Plazmite

Small insect capable of storing and releasing thermal energy.

Plazmites are attracted to sources of heat, thriving on the energy present
there.  They emit light when hunting, and will expel small bursts of thermal
energy when threatened.

===============
Barbed War Wasp  [Burn Dome - Chozo Ruins]
===============

Morphology:  Barbed War Wasp

Airborne insect with the ability to launch its stinger at prey.

A highly aggressive member of the War Wasp family, this insect can propel the
tip of its stinger up to 20 meters.  The stinger tips regrow seconds after
launch and contain an acidic compound designed to predigest prey.

========
Flaahgra  [Sunchamber - Chozo Ruins]
========

Morphology:  Flaahgra

This mutant plant is the source of toxic water in the Ruins.

Flaahgra's growth cycle has been radically accelerated.  As a result, it
requires near-constant exposure to colar energy to remain active.  This
exposure has made Flaagra's outer shell thick and durable.  Its lower root
system is unprotected and vulnerable, however.  Exploit this flaw when
possible.  Concentrated weapon fire can daze it for short periods.

=============
Scatter Bombu  [Ice Ruins Access - Phendrana Drifts]
=============

Morphology:  Scatter Bombu

Pulsing tendrils of energy extend from creature's body.

Like all Bombus, these creatures can only be harmed by electrical energy.
Proximity to these life-forms may result in electrical Visor interference.  It
is possible to avoid engaging Scatter Bombus by rolling into the Morph Ball
and slipping between the rotating energy streams.

============
Space Pirate  [Research Entrance - Phendrana Drifts]
============

Morphology:  Space Pirate

Sentient aggressor species well trained in weapon and melee combat.

Space Pirates wield Galvanic Accelerator Cannons and forearm-mounted Scythes in
combat.  This species seeks to become the dominant force in the galaxy, and
their technology may help them realize this goal.  Ruthless and amoral, the
Pirates care little for the cost of their ambition.  Only the results matter,
and they take these very seriously.

========
Parasite  [Emergency Evacuation Area - Space Pirate Frigate]
========

Morphology:  Parasite

Interstellar vermin.  Travel in swarms.

Indigenous to Tallon IV, a single Parasite is harmless to larger life-forms.
However, they tend to travel in large groups, swarming over potential prey.
Such swarms can be dangerous.

===========
Tallon Crab  [Main Ventilation Shaft Section A - Tallon Overworld]
===========

Morphology:  Tallon Crab

Crustacean native of Tallon IV.

Hard-shelled swarm life-form.  Once harvested for food, exposure to Phazon has
seen this practice diminish.  Creatures are timid and harmless alone, but can
be a problem when traveling in swarms.

========
Blastcap  [Tallon Canyon - Tallon Overworld]
========

Species:  Blastcap

Volatile chemicals within this weed's toxic fungal cap may explode if agitated.

The poisonous flesh of the Blastcap helps keep it from being eaten.  It also
detonates its fungal cap when it senses even slight contact.

========
Aqua Sac  [Connection Elevator to Deck Beta - Tallon Overworld]
========

Species:  Aqua Sac

Will burst when subjected to impact or trauma.

Believed to be in the same family as the Sap Sac, this plant has similar
features.  It will burst when exposed to force.  This protective response keeps
most creatures from feeding on it.

=======
Lumigek  [Crater Tunnel A - Impact Crater]
=======

Morphology:  Lumigek

Phazon-charged reptiles.

Natives of Tallon IV, the Lumigeks travel in swarms to increase their odds of
survival.  They absorb and radiate Phazon energy, making these swarms a threat.

==================
Incinterator Drone  [Burn Dome - Chozo Ruins]
==================

Mechanoid:  Incinerator Drone

Programmed for high temperature waste disposal.

Device schematics indicate a high risk of malfunction when internal power core
is damaged.  Unit has minimal combat programming, but can defend itself if
necessary.  This drone's intense heat blasts compensate for its lack of battle
prowess.

====
Eyon  [Eyon Tunnel - Chozo Ruins]
====

Morphology:  Eyon

Immobile organisms entirely composed of ocular tissue.

Capable of launching sustained energy beams when active, the Eyon is sensitive
to light and will close shut if a bright flash ignites nearby.

===============
Fission Metroid  [Phazon Core - Impact Crater]
===============

Morphology:  Fission Metroid

Metroid with the ability to split into two forms.

The Fission Metroid is a mutant, capable of splitting in two.  This split
endows the new creatures with invulnerability to most weaponry.  This effect is
unstable, resulting in weakness to a type of weapon fire.  The vulnerability
appears to be random, due to the chaotic nature of Phazon mutations.

======
Oculus  [Sun Tower - Chozo Ruins]
======

Morphology:  Oculus

Wall-crawler that generates electric pulses.

The Oculus exposes its single eye when active.  The electrical field that
covers it is enough to deter most predators.  If the Oculus detects anything
capable of presenting a real threat, it retracts into its impermeable shell.

===========
Meta Ridley  [Artifact Temple - Tallon Overworld]
===========

Morphology:  Meta Ridley

Genetically enhanced Ridley metaform.

Reborn and evolved through Pirate technology, Meta Ridley is a fearsome
enforcer.  Its armored hide is extremely resilient, save for chest, which has
thinner plating.  The Pirates have fused a number of potent weapons to the
creature, including a Multi-Missile System, a Kinetic Breath Weapon, a Meson
Bomb Launcher, and an Ultrathermal Flamestrike Projector.  Meta Ridley is also
a formidable melee combatant, making any sort of engagement a risky
proposition.

==============
Plasma Trooper  [Phazon Processing Center - Phazon Mines]
==============

Morphology:  Plasma Trooper

Space Pirate armed with Plasma Beam technology.

Space Pirates have reverse-engineered several of your weapons, including the
Plasma Beam.  A flaw in the design makes these Pirates vulnerable to their own
Beam weapon system.  These weapons are inferior to your Chozo-designed
originals, but still quite potent.

===========
Aqua Pirate  [Reactor Core - Tallon Overworld]
===========

Morphology:  Aqua Pirate

Space Pirates with exoskeletons modified for underwater use.

Using modified thruster-packs and Gravity Suit technology, the Space Pirates
have armorsuits for use in liquid environments.  Thermal tracking is still very
useful against these units, as the Pirate engineers have yet to eliminate the
thruster-pack's high heat signature.

=============
Baby Sheegoth  [Ice Ruins East - Phendrana Drifts]
=============

Morphology:  Baby Sheegoth

Glacial predator.  Ice shell protects vulnerable dorsal area.

Young Sheegoths grow a resilient shell of ice on their backs which serves to
protect a layer of vulnerable flesh.  With this being their only weak point,
Baby Sheegoths will turn quickly in order to not allow predators the
opportunity to strike at their backs.  Powerful hunters, they fire bursts of
ultracold gas at potential prey, then feast on their frozen victim.

========
Seedling  [Temple Hall - Tallon Overworld]
========

Morphology:  Seedling

Plant-based ground feeder.

Dorsal spines can be ejected in self-defense.

=============
Plated Beetle  [Chozo Ruins - Ruined Shrine]
=============

Morphology:  Plated Beetle

Well-armored burrowing insect.  Vulnerable only in the rear abdomen.

Creature's thick cranial plating can repel frontal attacks.  This gives it an
advantage in combat, allowing it to make ramming attacks.  Only surfacing when
it detects vibrations above, it then maneuvers itself so as to always face its
rival, keeping its exposed abdomen protected.

========
Sheegoth  [Chapel of the Elders - Phendrana Drifts]
========

Morphology:  Sheegoth

Supreme predator of the Phendrana Drifts.

Sheegoths are invulnerable to most Beam weapons.  The crystals on their back
absorb energy, which they can fire at prey.  Sheegoths have poor stamina.  They
hyperventilate after using their breath attack, making their mouth area
vulnerable.  The soft underbelly of a Sheegoth is susceptible to concussive
blasts.  In battle, they expel blasts of frigid gas to ensnare their targets.
They are also fond of ramming and trampling their hapless prey.

==========
Stone Toad  [Energy Core - Chozo Ruins]
==========

Morphology:  Stone Toad

Preys on creatures smaller than itself.  Vulnerable only from within.

A Stone Toad is able to remain still for days.  It preys upon creatures smaller
than itself, inhaling them whole.  Anything it finds undigestible, it
regurgitates.  Stone Toads use their tusks as a last resort in combat.

=======
Metroid  [Research Lab Aether - Phendrana Drifts]
=======

Morphology:  Metroid

Energy-based parasitic predator.

The dominant species of planet SR388, Metroids can suck the life force out of
living things.  A Metroid will latch onto its prey and drain energy, growing
larger as it does.  The only way to shake an attached Metroid is to enter Morph
Ball mode and lay a Bomb.

==========
Venom Weed  [Arboretum - Chozo Ruins]
==========

Species:  Venom Weed

Poisonous plant that retracts into the ground if threatened.

Venom Weeds evolved to thrive in the habitats of large organisms.  They lure
prey with brightly colored leaves, then detain it with tiny barbs that deliver
a powerful toxin.  Venom Weeds rapidly decompose anything that succumbs in
their midst.

============
Phazon Elite  [Elite Research - Phazon Mines]
============

Morphology:  Phazon Elite

Elite Pirate infused with energized Phazon.

The Phazon-charged Elite Pirates rely more on their Wave Quake Generators,
opting not to carry the vulnerable Plasma Artillery Cannons normally used by
Elites.  The direct fusing of Phazon into their bodies provides a tremendous
level of energy.  The drastically lower life span that comes with this process
is of little concern to the Pirate Research team.

=============
Metroid Prime   [Subchamber One - Impact Crater]
=============

Morphology:  Metroid Prime

The core essence of Metroid Prime

Scan indicates that the Phazon energy form of Metroid Prime is invulnerable to
all conventional weapons:  only attacks from a Phazon-fuzed Arm Cannon will
damage it.  It generates pools of Phazon when it attacks:  use these to fuel
your Suit's Phazon weapon system.  The entity can also spawn Metroids to assist
it in battle, rendering itself invisible when it does so.

============
Ice Burrower  [Plaza Walkway - Phendrana Drifts]
============

Morphology:  Ice Burrower

Burrower adapted to subfreezing climates.

A hardy life-form, the Ice Burrower has adapted to the frigid climate of
Phendrana.  It spends most of its time tunneling through the frozen soil, but
will occasionally surface to attack passersby.

=================
Flaahgra Tentacle  [Sunchamber - Chozo Ruins]
=================

One of Flaahgra's tentacles fills this narrow drainage channel.

Analysis indicates that Flaaghra's central nervous system is located at the
base of this structure.

============
Elite Pirate  [Elite Control - Phazon Mines]
============

Morphology:  Elite Pirate

Phazon-enhanced Space Pirate.  Incredibly strong, armored, and well armed.

Elite Pirates are potent foes.  Their energy-siphon system absorbs Beam weapon
shots, which they use to fuel a massive Plasma Artillery Cannon.  The nature of
this system makes them vulnerable to concussion-based weapons.  Well armed, the
Elite Pirate is effective in close combat and at a distance.  Their massive
size can be a weakness, and their sluggish speed allows for evasion and quick
attacks.

============
Omega Pirate  [Omega Research - Phazon Mines]
============

Morphology:  Omega Pirate

Most powerful of the Elite Pirate Forces.

Omega Pirate can become invisible to normal sight.  It is vulnerable when
cloaked, as all energy is drawn from defense systems.  By exposing itself to
Phazon, it can regenerate damaged tissue and organs.  Considered the pinnacle
of the Elite Pirate program, this enemy should be handled with extreme caution
and maximum firepower.

============
Puddle Spore  [South Core Tunnel - Magmoor Caverns]
============

Morphology:  Puddle Spore

Sentient floating lava mollusk protected by an impenetrable shell.

A Puddle Spore opens when approached, attempting to intimidate with its size.
When opened, direct fire to its mantle causes it to flip into a defensive
position.  If it can slam shut, it ejects a spread of harmful energy globules.

===========
Chozo Ghost  [Hall of the Elders - Chozo Ruins]
===========

Aberration:  Chozo Ghost

Spectral entity.  Bioelectric field invulnerable to natural energies.

As these entities phase in and out of existence, the only way to track them
accurately is with x-ray scanning.  This partially phased nature makes them
invulnerable to natural energy types, such as fire, ice, and electricity.
Their aggressive and erratic behavior is most likely due to the corrupting
effects of Phazon in the Tallon IV environment.  They appear to be drawn to
Chozo religious sites, where they wreak havoc upon anything that dares enter
the area.

=======
Thardus  [Quarantine Cave - Phendrana Drifts]
=======

Morphology:  Thardus

An animated, sentient creature of stone charged with Phazon radiation.

The Phazon radiation given off by Thardus negates auto-targeting systems,
preventing lock-on.  It may be possible to acquire alternate targets with a
different Visor.  The chaotic nature of Phazon irradiation leads to instability
in its structural integrity.  Thardus can encase targets in ice, and its
colossal size and strength make it a formidable opponent.

=========
Shriekbat  [Arboretum Access - Chozo Ruins]
=========

Morphology:  Shriekbat

Territorial ceiling-dweller.  Body temperature peaks at 121 centigrade.

Shriekbats have high internal temperature, making them easy to spot with
thermal imaging.  They roost on cave ceilings while hunting for small prey.
Fiercely territorial, they dive-bomb anything that wanders near.

==============
Hunter Metroid  [Frost Cave - Phendrana Drifts]
==============

Morphology:  Hunter Metroid

Adolescent Metroid.  Energy-siphon tentacle increases its threat level.

As Metroids develop, they become more efficient predators.  An energy-draining
tentacle allows them to attack at a distance.  Quick to anger, a Hunter Metroid
will charge troublesome prey and attempt to ram them into submission.
Cold-based attacks are still quite effective against these creatures.

=======
Magmoor  [Lava Lake - Magmoor Caverns]
=======

Morphology:  Magmoor

Fire-breathing serpent that dwells in lava.

Magmoors prefer extreme heat zones, and are susceptible to frigid attack forms.
Sightless, they navigate the lava currents using their sonar receptors.
Magmoors have a keen sense of small, enabling them to pinpoint targets with
startling accuracy.

====
Hive  [Main Plaza - Chozo Ruins]
====

Structure:  War Wasp Hive

Primary War Wasp dwelling.  Only vulnerable to heavy weaponry.

War Wasps build their homes over existing crevices, using whatever materials
are close at hand.  They carry building fragments back to the construction site
with their forelegs and glue them into place with adhesives secreted from their
abdomens.

=============
Metroid Prime  [Metroid Prime Lair - Impact Crater]
=============

Morphology:  Metroid Prime

Highly evolved, Phazon-producing life-form.

The aberration known as Metroid Prime is the source of Phazon, making it
immensely powerful.  A genetic flaw makes it susceptible to certain weapons for
brief periods.  Only its head is truly vulernable:  other attacks are a
nuisance.  Offensively, Metroid Prime has a number of natural and mechanical
weapons at its disposal.  These include Ultrafrigid Breath, Multi-Missiles,
Snare Beams, and Particle Wave Projectors.  Its massive strength and barbed
carapace make it lethal in melee combat.  Recommend maximum firepower when
engaging this enemy.

=============
Shadow Pirate  [Specimen Storage - Phendrana Drifts]
=============

Morphology:  Shadow Pirate

Pirate forces trained and equipped for stealth operations.

A select group of Space Pirates have access to sophisticated cloaking
technology.  This gear drains high levels of power, however, forcing them to
rely solely on melee weapons in battle.  Use enhanced detection gear when
fighting these units.

============
Ram War Wasp  [Hive Totem - Chozo Ruins]
============

Morphology:  Ram War Wasp

Airborne predator.  Circles its prey and then strikes.

The War Wasps are the only species on Tallon IV to evolve a true hive mind.
Nesting in damp, dark places, Ram War Wasps emerge in small groups when
threatened and circle their enemy at high speeds, disorienting it.  Striking
from all sides as a single intelligence, they can fell huge organisms.

============
Ice Parasite  [Chozo Ice Temple - Phendrana Drifts]
============

Morphology:  Ice Parasite

Scavenger with a crystalline outer shell.

Parasites are hardy creatures, able to adapt to any environment within three
generations.  The Ice Parasite is a prime example.  Having adjusted to a frigid
climate, this vermin now thrives in it.  Omnivorous, it can exist in areas
hostile to most life-forms.

======
Geemer  [Tallon Canyon - Tallon Overworld]
======

Morphology:  Geemer

Wall-crawling mollusk with retractable spikes.

The Geemer is an evolutionary offshoot of the Zoomer family.  When threatened,
it extends lethal spikes and retracts its head deep into its armored carapace.

===========
Crystallite  [Phendrana Shorelines - Phendrana Drifts]
===========

Morphology:  Crystallite

Territorial cold-weather scavenger.

The shell of a Crystallite reflects Beam weapons, and can only be cracked by a
concussive blast.  They hang upside down in an ice cave during their larval
stage.  Moisture runs off its body and forms the hard ice shell, which the
Crystallite retains for the rest of its life.

=============
Plated Puffer  [Tower of Light - Chozo Ruins]
=============

Morphology:  Plated Puffer

Mutated Puffer with reinforced epidermis.

Phazon exposure has created a mutant strain of Puffers on Tallon IV.  They have
developed plated skin, making them harder to burst.  Concussive weapons can
still do the job, however.  The gas within the Plated Puffer is just as deadly
as that within their 'cousins.'

=============
Power Trooper  [Elite Research - Phazon Mines]
=============

Morphology:  Power Trooper

Space Pirate armed with Power Beam technology.

Space Pirates have reverse-engineered several of your weapons, including the
Power Beam.  A flaw in the design makes these Pirates vulnerable to their own
Beam weapon system.  These weapons are inferior to your Chozo-designed
originals, but still quite potent.

============

Small Energy.  Replenishes 10 units of energy.

==========
Stalactite  [Ice Ruins West - Phendrana Drifts]
==========

This hanging rock structure appears to have a weak spot near its base.

Some stalactites can be dislodged from ceilings, allowing them to be used as
platforms to cross otherwise unreachable areas.

===============
Missile Station  [Hall of the Elders - Chozo Ruins]
===============

Missile Station

Step into these stations to fully reload your Missile Launcher.

=================
Spider Ball Track  [Quarantine Cave - Phendrana Drifts]
=================

Magnetic rail system track.

In Morph Ball mode, press and hold R when close to this type of surface.  Use
D-Stick to move the Ball along the track.  Release R to disengage from the
surface.

CAUTION:  A Morph Ball Bomb will briefly disengage the Ball from the track.

===============
Power Bomb Ammo  [Transport Tunnel E - Tallon Overworld]
===============

Power Bomb Ammunition.  Resupplies Power Bomb with 1 round of ammo.

=============
Grapple Point  [Ore Processing - Phazon Mines]
=============

Analysis indicates a viable attach point for the Grapple Beam.

To use the Grapple Beam, use L when the [grapple] icon appears.

=====
Zebes  [Observatory - Phendrana Drifts]
=====

Planet Zebes

Mass:  4.8 trillion teratons.

Profile:  Planet's crust is primarily Urthic ore, making it ideal for
subterranean construction.  A class XIX planet, Zebes is inhospitable to most
bioforms.  The world was considered unremarkable until it became a base for
Space Pirate forces.

============
Ultra Energy  [Sun Tower Access - Chozo Ruins]
============

Ultra Energy.  Replenishes 100 units of energy.

===============
Morph Ball Slot  [Energy Core - Chozo Ruins]
===============

Standard Morph Ball slot.  This slot is active.

Inserting the Morph Ball and detonating a Bomb will usually cause these slots
to send electrical impulses that can activate different types of devices.

=========
Tallon IV  [Observatory - Phendrana Drifts]
=========

Planet Tallon IV

Mass:  5.1 trillion teratons.

Profile:  Ecosystem studies indicate that Tallon IV was a biological paradise
prior to the impact of an extraterrestrial object.  What remains of the
biosphere is slowly fading due to exposure to Phazon radiation.  At current
rate of decay, Tallon IV will be a barren Class XIII wasteland in approximately
25 years.

===========
Locked Door  [Energy Core - Chozo Ruins]
===========

Lock system engaged.  Secure area to unlock door.

=======
Gunship  [Landing Site - Tallon Overworld]
=======

Hunter-class Gunship registered to Samus Aran.

 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

For a "complete" game, you'll have to scan all sorts of things as you play to
fill all the spots in your Log Book.  Some things can always be found and
scanned, but other things can only be scanned during a certain period during
the game.  It is therefore very important that you're always on the lookout for
things to scan.

The following sections have simple lists of each entry as well as the location
where you can find them.  If you're interested in reading the text blurbs for
each entry, refer to section 5 of this guide.

Please note that these entries are listed in the same order that they appear
inside your log book, which is not necessarily the order you'll find them as
you progress through the game.

be found in several places.  The locations I've listed next to each entry are
just one possible spot where each entry can definitely be found (or in the case
of unique entries, the only place they can be found).
