The Frigate Crash Site is a room in the Tallon Overworld. It appears in Metroid Prime.

Description[]

Obviously, the Frigate Crash Site is where the Frigate Orpheon crashed. The room consists of the exterior of the crashed ship, next to a large pond. Opposite the frigate is a door leading to the Waterfall Cavern. When Samus first enters the room from the Waterfall Cavern she sees a group of Flying Pirates who, upon spotting her, flee. They leave behind two crates leaking Phazon, which is Samus's first encounter with the mutagenic substance.

To reach the opposite shore of the pond, Samus must enter the water, and cross to the other side. Underneath the pool on a ledge is a Morph Ball tunnel that leads to a small cave from which Samus can reach the shore. There are 2 Grapple Points above the water that act as a shortcut across the room.

After Gravity Suit

Items[]

Missile Expansion
This Expansion can only be reached if Samus has the Gravity Suit. It is found underwater, to the left of where Samus entered. The Expansion lies in a small cave in the rock face, near the submerged roots.

Scans[]

Samus crossing the pool with the Grapple Beam.

Flora
"This lichen seems to be giving off low levels of radiation. No matches found in flora and fauna databank."
Hole
"There is a small crevice detected at the base of this wall."
Frigate Orpheon
"Derelict Space Pirate ship that self-destructed in low orbit above Tallon IV. Faint life signs detected in interior."
Phazon crate
"This crate appears to be the same type of container found on the Space Pirate research frigate. The material seeping out from the ruptured metal is highly toxic. Analysis indicates this may be the 'Phazon' compound the Space Pirates were using in their biological experiments."
Injured Space Pirate 1
"Morphology: Space Pirate. Creature is critically injured. Cranial trauma indicates likelihood of brain damage."
Injured Space Pirate 2
"Morphology: Space Pirate. Irregular life signs detected. Massive internal injuries due to concussive trauma."

Trivia[]

  • It is possible to completely skip the crashed Frigate by Sequence Breaking.
    • If so and this room is first entered with the Phazon Suit, the canister of Phazon will not harm Samus despite her suit telling her she is in danger or receiving damage.
  • It appears that the Frigate is crashed in a nose up vertical position. The view of the Frigate from this room is actually the front of the ship placed upward and the entrance is in reality the Exterior Docking Hangar.
  • The White door leading to Frigate Access Tunnel can be opened with the Phazon Beam (via hacking) and only from this side.
