The Emergency Evacuation Area (緊急避難エリア Kinkyū Hinan Eria ) is a room aboard the Frigate Orpheon in Metroid Prime. It serves as an evacuation area for the Space Pirates, as there are several escape pods. Six hours prior to Samus' arrival, two Parasite Queens broke out of the containment area, one of which is seen in this room as a rotting corpse. The room also contains a few Parasites feeding on dead Space Pirates and two dying Space Pirates that die with a few shots from the Power Beam.
The Frigate Orpheon theme begins playing when Samus enters the Emergency Evacuation Area.
