The self destruct sequence on Ceres Space Colony

A Self-Destruct System[1] (also known as a self destruct sequence[2], self-destruct mechanism[3], and self-destruction protocol[4]) is a mechanism, protocol or device that can cause an area, facility or even an entire planet to destroy itself within a set period of time. The purpose for this mechanism's inclusion in various places is unknown. It is possible that the mechanism is intended to be activated in cases of emergency, or to prevent dangerous technology from falling into enemy hands.

Self-destruction mechanisms or protocols are what trigger many countdowns in the Metroid series.
