The Cargo Hub is a very large room on Norion. It appears in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, and connects to multiple rooms, including the elevator to the Control Tower.

It has several dead Galactic Federation Marines in it. A small hatch can be opened by a Hand Scanner, which leads into a maze underneath the floor.

This one has finished bothering us. Go on ahead. I will stay here and protect the area.

Proceed quickly to Generator C and reactivate the defense systems before we're all vaporized!

Go on, get out of here!

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • After getting the Missile Expansion and leaving the ventilation shafts, Samus can become stuck in the opposite wall if she un-morphs at the correct time. Samus will be unable to move from the position and will be dealt continuous damage.
  • In the 2006 prototype of Corruption, the enemy composition in this room is radically different. Instead of facing Aeromines, Samus encounters Space Pirates.
  • The sequence where Ghor battles and kills a Berserker Knight was animated by Sonny Santa Maria.
  • The Tower Elevator will be blocked off by a Federation Marine if Samus were to revisit Norion, saying it is "blocked off due to repairs," similar to what the Marine in the path leading to Generator C says.
