Not to be confused with the Frigate Orpheon.

The Space Pirate starship (called the Space Pirate frigate in Captain A.C. Exeter's report and the Space Pirate vessel in a scan) was an unspecified Space Pirate frigate containing many Space Pirates that crash-landed on planet Aether eight days before Metroid Prime 2: Echoes. The frigate had been dispatched by High Command to provide reinforcements and replacement machinery to the existing Pirate base on the planet. The Frigate was engaged by the Galactic Federation ship G.F.S. Tyr, an Anhur-class Patrol Ship running a routine scout in the Dasha region. The Pirate frigate sustained heavy damage from the Tyr and crashed near the Pirate base in the Agon Wastes. The survivors from the crash made their way inside the Pirate complex. The frigate had contained a new generator for the damaged Stealth Shield Generator, but it was destroyed in the crash. Without the ship's replacement generator to protect them, the Pirates feared they would be exposed to the scanning systems of the pursuing Tyr's crew; the GFMC Task Force Herakles, which followed the Pirates and also made planet fall.

Samus Aran discovered the still burning wreckage of the Frigate at the entrance to the Pirate base in Agon. The Pirates seemed to be using it as makeshift wall to protect their fortress. Interestingly, it is only scannable in Wii versions of Echoes.

Given that this is a Pirate frigate, it may represent Frigate Siriacus or Frigate Vol Paragom. The overall design of the frigate resembled that of the Space Pirate Mother Ship.
