Main Ventilation Shaft Section E is part of a network of ventilation shafts in the Frigate Orpheon in Metroid Prime that Samus travels through after the Parasite Queen battle in order to escape the frigate. This section opens into a humid section with a large metal cylinder that repeatedly retracts and returns, though it does not harm Samus. Waiting for it to retract far enough reveals the door to the next part of the shaft.

  • Main Ventilation Shaft Section E, along with Main Ventilation Shaft Sections D and F, did not survive the crash into Tallon IV, unlike the other half of the Main Ventilation Shaft.
