The room's main feature is a red laser security grid that pans between a small lower level in the room. It was installed to prevent intruders from moving further into the SkyTown facility. The four small laser beams that are stacked on top of each other are projected out of slotted grooves in the wall. The eight beams move forwards and backwards through the room in parallel to each other, and the lasers cast a red hue over the whole room. Contact with the lasers will severely damage life forms.
The north ledge of the lower level has a small alcove inside, containing a Missile Expansion. Small circular panels that glow a bright green are placed decorativley around the room to contrast with the red of the security lasers Some of these panels rotate in the walls. Also placed at the Transit Hub entrance are holographic projectors that can receive transmissions. When Samus first enters, an image of Ghor is displayed. After restoring Aurora Unit 217, its image is displayed instead. Odd gear and wheel designs and patterns are also situated on the walls and ceiling.
- Missile Expansion
- A single Missile Expansion lies beneath the ledge out of the pit in the centre of the room. It can be accessed by Morph Ball. No obstructions protect the expansion.
- Energy beams
- "Security systems engaged. Contact with activated energy beams will result in injury".
- Due to the situation of the Missile Expansion, many players often miss it upon their first entry of the room, but discover it later upon return.
