About this creation
I shouldn't have to tell you that this is the Areetsa Edition, but I will anyway:
it's the Areetsa Edition.

LADIES AND GENTLETHINGS OF THE
GALACTIC FEDERATION,
THIS IS YOUR TAX MONIES AT WORK!



Contrary to popular belief, the Federation is not the good guys in the Metroid series: let's have a few examples, shall we?

1: Space Pirates aboard the BSL space station: either they were raiding it, they were prisoners or they were negotiating with the Federation.
Seeing as they were all through Sector 1, no prison cells are visible and no boarding pods and dead Feddies are about, which do you think is most likely?

2: Metroid research aboard the Biologic Space Labs station in orbit around SR-388: 'peaceful purposes only, of course' my foot: what peaceful use can the rearing of an Omega Metroid in a matter of days have?
They wanted living weapons.

3: Nightmare. Need I say more? That computer specifically says that the Nightmare was a biological weapon; what was it doing there, aboard a peaceful research station?
They were building the dang things to kill.
And I'd be willing to bet that the Nightmare wasn't the only nasty little bioweapon floating around the station, either: gases and diseases, viruses and contagions?
Almost certainly.

4: Serris. The thing had a breeding tank; where were the offspring?
Probably off subjugating the populations of aquatic worlds.
They would have been perfectly suited; the whole shape of the beast screams 'predator'.

5: That 'BOX' robot; what's the bet it was a war machine, much like the Nightmare?
There's only one so it's no security drone.

6: Also admitted was that the Federation intended to capture a SA-X; no peaceful uses for THAT beastie, what use except as a self-replicating superweapon, with all the power and none of the morals of one 'Samus Aran'.


It is certain that at least some of the higher ranking echelons of the Federation were corrupt, whether that corruption permeates through the ranks is unknown.



'Die, CRIMINAL SCUM!'



'Oh look, you're FILTHY ALIEN SCUM too, that just makes this more fun!'

'Drop dead!'
'Oh, you don't want to, eh? Well, I'll just have to ENCOURAGE you then, won't I?'



'GYAHAHAHAHA! DIEDIEDIEDIEDIE!!'

Oh, and another thing. Multiple B.O.X drones? More than likely, our little friend that we encounter in-game is more than likely a "last survivor" type. Perhaps it was the last one that had not been infected or had self-destructed. Maybe it went rouge because it's central command computer was destroyed. There is a whole plethora of explanations to this issue. And just to clear things up: B.O.X=Biological Onix-class Xenophoid.

PLUS, humans are weak. Why would the X mimic guards that couldn't even put up a decent fight? As for those zombie researchers, they remained in that form to access and utilize the knowledge obtainable only by doing so. Need an example? Flashback to the emergency in Sector 3 level. That researcher-x will stay in it's current form to keep the coolant system offline. HOWEVER, when you attack it, it morphs in to something more resistant to your weapons. Doesn't that make sense? As a last note, I'm not bucking for the GF here. No doubt that some people in their ranks more than likely have their own interests set above those of the commonwealth. But I simply couldn't let such arguments go on with out a deep probing! No offense, but people who take such a position without solid reasoning drive me nuts.

Well, that only makes sense! If you want to hide a tree, use a forest. In other words, if you want to hide something that you want absolutely no one to find, then stick it in a uninteresting place. As for no defensive turrets, didn't you see all the wreckage in the walls? I'd be willing to bet that most of those holes one housed security drone launchers, defensive rail guns, ect. No doubt they were privy to the differences and threat levels between the X and a normal creature, so the X took care of them. I know I would.

Quoting Ryan Young I also strongly disagree with the above "fact" that there was only one B.O.X security robot on-board for two reasons. #1. The Ship's Computer said "I see you've encountered a rogue security robot..." He said "a", not "the"! #2. Why would such a vital facility be left with just one guard? You think that the GF would have learned from their war with the Space Pirates(a.k.a Zebesians).
'A', yes. Probably implying that security 'bots going rogue isn't unheard of. As for guards.. well, during the game, you're trotting all over the station, and not once do you see a turret, a security barricade or any form of.. anything defensive, really, including other B.O.X. drones. So my opinion is that the station's defences are A, the wildlife aboard, B: the fact that the simulated environments aren't exactly hospitable, C: the fact that there's probably vents that let them flood compromised decks with water or magma or acid or any of those other lovely things you find in Metroid's death pits, and D: obscurity. I'm pretty sure the only thing that makes SR-388 notable is the Metroids. It isn't even named, and IIRC none of the planets on the little map showed during the intro were either. So, it's a small, unobtrusive wildlife research base orbiting a completely uninteresting planet in a completely uninteresting star system.

Quoting Julian Acosta I'm assuming you have the collector's edition Metroid Prime Trilogy right? also what do you think of Other M?
Nnnope. Haven't played either. Own Prime, Prime 2, Prime 3, but not Trilogy and not Other M.

Yea I know, the vaccine metroid.

ALSO, so no further arguments appear over this issue, once something is infected by the X parasites it DIES. That is why you can't find real Space Pirates aboard the B.S.L. station. Samus was an exception. Pretty obvious how she survived.

Nobody seems to be thinking right here. The X mimicked PRESERVED Space Pirates, just like that one Core-X did to frozen Ridley. As for the B.O.X. security robot, you gotta have some kind of heavy security for such a important facility(but I DO agree on the Metroid thing. PEACEFUL reasons?! Ha!).

Quoting Commander Spencer The reason there were space pirates on the BSL station is because THE X WERE MIMICKING THEM! They weren't the real space pirates! They were just x parasites. Also with nightmare, it's the same. A core x was mimicking nightmare.
You didn't actually think that through, did you? An X colony can't replicate a form without possessing the original. To possess the 'Nightmare', a colony had to infect the original; since the samples were all shipped to the BSL station, that means the original was already there. Same for the pirates; without the original pirates, there could be no X duplicates. Summed up: to mimic pirates, the X first had to infect one. For them to infect one, there first had to be at least one on the station.

Good, I almost beat Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. Couldn't beat the final boss before I had to return it to GameFly. I remember these guys.

Quoting Ben Sandfelder Good job. About the GF being bad guys.... That honestly depends on point of view. You are probably right, there are a bunch of corrupt guys running it, but as seen in Prime 3, they aren't entirely corrupt, or at least not the individual soldiers.... They do waste far too much cash on their military, though.
If you ask me, they don't waste nearly enough of it on guns. Buut no, this is referring to the post-Fusion era.

Quoting LEGO 19 Isn't supposed to be the GF Marine like light grey/blue?
Silver/lightblue, actually: this is a mix of the GFed troops from the prime games and concepts of my own; sort of a rendition of what the enemy in Fusion 2 might look like.

Quoting John Moffat What's the yellow star piece from?
Not really sure; it's supposed to be a starfish, but I think it's second hand, bought online. It's lego though, no doubt about it.

Quoting Clan Father Erik Ackroyd Sounds like our little friend is having a great day; how cute. Overall, this has a pretty nice space look to it and the effects are great too. So, this a nice piece of work you have here.
Thanks; the 'gyahahaha' thing is a reference to a sprite comic I like, actually. The general shape is about right, I think, as for the effect: well, that's a starfish part. My little brother uses it in his pub for what we in my house know of as a 'splurkie'. I'll let you figure out what a splurkie is, but I'll give a hint: stick your finger down your throat. THAT's a splurkie.
