|Phendrana Drifts - Research Lab Hydra|
This single room is its own post, just because of how much lore and other details there are to cover.
One of them talks about how they completed building the security checkpoints on Tallon IV, but local creatures keep breaching it. They realized there must be small creatures coming in through these small tunnels, and they're trying to seal up all the tunnels they can, but have little faith in being able to block off all of them...
(so I guess that explains why some creatures are missable and can't be found again later in the game).
They detected Phazon that seems to have come from a meteor that leaked it into the environment.
Mining operations have begun near the crater where Phazon appears to be most concentrated. Daily Phazon yields have increased 44%, and our mining system becomes more streamlined as personnel and equipment flows increase. Several incidents of Phazon-induced madness have been reported, prompting augmented life-support regulations in the deeper chambers. Symptoms include loss of equilibrium, erratic respiration, muscle spasms, and in the most extreme cases, hallucinations. A timeline reassessment for the refinery operation is recommended, as the material proves more unstable than initial analysis indicated.
Woah... this plot is so good.
Got the 50% log book completion notice just now.
Most of these orange research note scans aren't very interesting, but one of them says:
Xenome 5-a is undergoing relocation to Lab Hydra. Subject's transfer ordered after a pronounced increase in aberrant behavior. Security Clearance ADR-13.This must be the specimen that became too powerful and was immobilized...
The orange research notes up at the top report about a virus contained in one of the Phazon-mutated batches, and that's why they needed to put certain sections under containment.
One last pirate logbook scan here...
Research outpost Glacier One in the Phendrana Drifts region of Tallon IV's mountains is operating at 85% capacity. Sub-zero temperatures have made the Metroids sluggish and easy to control, even those well into Phazon-infusion cycles. Cold-containment stasis tanks are sufficient for the juveniles, but some of the larger Metroids have been moved to quarantined caves for safety purposes. Security doors remain an issue, as malfunctions due to ice occur every day. Large predators in the wastes are also a concern, as they continue to kill personnel and breach secure areas. Unfortunately, it has become clear that our containment teams cannot neutralize all of them without a vast increase in munitions and soldiers.
Man... these pirates really got in over their heads with this phazon shit... they should be as spooked about it as the Chozo were, but they're not cuz they're dumb.
