Excelcion is an arctic planet in the Bermuda System. Originally a warm planet with a wealth of natural liquid and mineral resources, a meteor impact 20 years prior to the events of Metroid Prime: Federation Force caused extreme climate change and plunged the planet into an ice age. it was the location of a Galactic Federation mining outpost that was abandoned after the environmental shift.
In M04: Containment, the Federation Force is tasked with trapping four Ice Titans on the planet to be transported for study. Other bioforms on this planet include Ice Shriekbats, Eyeflyers, Ice Geemers, Ice Hoppers and their Nest, in addition to Space Pirates who have taken over the abandoned base.
Note: A portion of this text is also the in-game briefing for M01: Outpost.
"Excelcion is the first planet in the Bermuda System. It's abundant with natural resources, which is why the Federation established mining facilities here. However, a giant meteor impacted the planet around 20 years ago. The force of the collision caused extreme environmental changes and plunged Excelcion into an ice age. According to our records, savage wild xenoforms from the polar regions migrated to every corner of the planet and made it too dangerous to continue mining operations safely.
Your first mission: Eliminate all wild xenoforms within the outpost, clearing the way to reestablish the base."
