Connection Elevator to Deck Alpha is a room on the Frigate Orpheon in Metroid Prime. The elevator can be activated by scanning an Interface Module; upon completing this, an explosion causes damage to Samus Aran's Power Suit, which causes her Varia Suit, Grapple Beam, Charge Beam and Morph Ball capabilities to malfunction, and she is forced to track down her abilities again later. At the top of the elevator shaft, there is an Auto Defense Turret that can be deactivated via scanning another Interface Module that is found just before it.

- There is a glitch that can be used so that Samus can temporarily retain her abilities, although they are still lost after landing on Tallon IV.
- There is also another glitch that can happen where Samus mysteriously recovers all of her energy after the cutscene where she loses her abilities.
- A hallway at the top of the elevator is blocked by debris, presumably leading to an unseen deck of the Orpheon.
