The Galactic Federation Reconnaissance Drone was deployed on the investigation of the attacked G.F.S. Valhalla. It discovered the dead Federation Marines (Ryan Powell, Scott Petersen, Luis Ramirez, and Michael Kelbaugh) as well as the missing Aurora Unit 313 before being attacked by a swarm of Metroids with 1 minute and 5 seconds of recorded footage. The drone is never seen, only the recorded first-person video footage and the HUD of the drone. Aurora 242 later references the drone when contacting Samus about the discovery of the Valhalla.
