—Aurora Unit 242

242 declares Condition Red.

Condition red is a state of alertness observed on the G.F.S. Olympus at the beginning of Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. In the middle of a mission briefing attended by Samus Aran, Rundas, Ghor and Gandrayda, a tremor strikes the Olympus as the Space Pirates are initiating a full-scale invasion of the planet Norion. Aurora Unit 242 declares condition red from its Aurora Chamber, and the Bounty Hunters are dispatched to Norion to repel the attack. During condition red, the words "EMERGENCY CONDITION RED" are displayed, encircling the hologram of 242.
