A dedicated terminal is an interactive terminal featured in Metroid Prime: Federation Force. As an alternative to the Scan Visor in other Metroid Prime games, these terminals provide small amounts of lore and information from the inhabitants of Excelcion, Bion, Talvania, and the Doomseye. The terminals frequently contain Galactic Federation, Bion, Space Pirate or Daedalus Logs or other messages. Most missions contain up to three terminals in various parts of the area, but some feature less than three. M12: Last Stand, M16: Slipstream and M18: Hightower do not have any terminals, ostensibly due to the setting, situation and time-sensitive nature of these missions.
