Docking Bay 5 is a docking bay aboard the G.F.S. Olympus where Samus Aran lands her Gunship in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. It is the first room in the game.


Docking Bay 5 contains a holographic weapons calibration system and two Training Drone dispensers. Shields activate around the landing pad after a ship lands for safety purposes, though they can be overloaded through short-circuiting. The landing pad connects to the rest of the room via a bridge, which is blocked by a weapon calibration test at first.

Across the bridge is the main bulk of this room. There is a hatch for deploying Stiletto-class fighters on a conveyor belt, a GF Heavy Cargo Truck, and large cargo-bay doors that cannot be opened from this side. There is also a doorway on the wall to the port side with a Blast Shield that closes over it during combat. There is a room above it, presumably a control room similar to the one above Docking Bay 4, but it is not explored.

To the right of the ramp leading into the Olympus is a pad that launches the Drone Juggling mini-game. Achieving certain scores in this will reward Friend Vouchers.


After being cleared to land aboard the Olympus, Samus lands her Gunship here. Two Federation Marines greet her and subject her to a weapon calibration test (a tutorial for the new Wii Remote and Nunchuk controls). Once it is complete, one of the Marines uploads the location of the Ready Room to Samus's map, and they stand aside so she can proceed. Before moving further into the ship, Samus has the opportunity to take part in the Drone Juggling mini-game.

When returning to her Gunship after the Space Pirates attack Norion, Samus re-enters the room through Repair Bay A. The first boss of the game, the Berserker Lord, is faced here upon Samus's return, where it throws a Federation Marine out of the observation window. Its defeat triggers a shield failure as noted above. Following the battle, Samus can play the Training Drone mini-game again if she wishes, but this will be her last chance to do so.

One month after the invasion, after Samus has awoken from her coma aboard the Olympus, she returns to Docking Bay 5 in a cutscene and boards her Gunship to begin her mission proper. The room is not seen again after this point; however, the Docking Bay 5 on the G.F.S. Valhalla is virtually identical aside from the destruction.

Federation Marine dialogue[]

Please calibrate your weapon by shooting these targets.

Calibration complete.

(if approached) Admiral Dane is waiting for you in the briefing room.

—Left Marine when Samus approaches

Samus, welcome to the flagship G.F.S. Olympus. Admiral Dane is waiting for you in the briefing room. I will upload the location to you now.

(if approached) You should probably get going. Admiral Dane does not like to be kept waiting.

—Right Marine

Note: G.F.S. is present in the subtitles, but excluded in the voice file of the Marine.

The Fleet Mechanic will dismiss Samus if spoken to, citing his work.
