Generator A is a room on Norion. It appears in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption.


Generator A contains the first Fedtech Plasma Generator that Samus Aran must activate to re-power the Defense Cannon, brought down by the Space Pirate attack. When Samus enters the Generator for the first time, two Pirate Aerotroopers are seen departing, but not before detonating several charges placed on the generator, heavily damaging it. When she reaches the central platform, several "Jolly Roger" Drones surround her. They engage her in a similar battle to the Hive Mecha that Samus encountered on Tallon IV. Samus then has to activate a security lever to deactivate the security panels and return the generator to a down position. She then has to activate the generator itself.

Once Generator A is back online, Samus receives a transmission from Fleet Admiral Castor Dane about the Leviathan. Oddly, Samus can shoot the Aerotroopers, but they are immune to her attacks. After Samus prevents the Leviathan's impact, the room becomes off limits due to repairs.

  • Generator A contains the only usage of the Gel Bomb Rack model in the NTSC version of Corruption. However, it is not actually used by the Aerotroopers against Samus since they flee immediately upon seeing her.
