The Tetra Galaxy Scan Screen is accessed. The Celestial Archives and Alinos are detected.

The Tetra Galaxy Scan Screen[1] is an interface featured in Metroid Prime Hunters. Accessible only with the Hunter Gunship, it projects a celestial map of the Tetra Galaxy, specifically the Alimbic Cluster, and the five locations within it. These locations appear as Samus Aran continues her mission. The top screen of the Nintendo DS displays outer space, while the bottom screen features the map.

Coordinates for the Celestial Archives, Arcterra, Vesper Defense Outpost, Alinos and the Oubliette can be set here by sliding the DS stylus across an Ordinate and Abscissa Axis or by touching the screen using the stylus. When a location is highlighted, its name will be displayed. To land, the "Land Ship" button must be tapped. The Tetra Galaxy Scan Screen will warn Samus if any rival Bounty Hunters are present at the intended destination, and indicate whether they possess any Octoliths.

The Galaxy Map serves a similar purpose in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption.
