The defense system generator is a large device that controls the shields defending the Space Pirate Homeworld. Samus is tasked by Fleet Admiral Castor Dane to deactivate this device in order to allow the Federation Armada to invade the planet.
This device is powered by nine energy cores in three separate parts. The generator is located in the Command Station.
Samus begins the deactivation sequence by using the terminal at the top of the shaft. This caused three Phazite panels to be uncovered along the core's shaft. The Space Pirates were alerted to this action, and send in endless waves of Commando Pirates to stop Samus. She had to drop down three levels to find the first Phazite panel on the northeast side of the shaft. After using the X-Ray Visor to detect and fire at the three bouncing points within the panel, she repeated the same action with two other Energy Cores.
With all three destroyed, a Bomb Slot activated at the top of the shaft, near the terminal that Samus had previously used. A bomb was needed to finally deactivate the System, allowing the Galactic Federation ships to invade.
