The Transmission console is an interface within Samus Aran's Gunship in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption that allows her to communicate with others. It is required to use in the beginning of the game to board the G.F.S. Olympus when a squadron of Stiletto-class fighters request Samus' security code. A number of notable brodcasts can be found that are actually from Japanese Nintendo developers. Several other frequencies can be listened to, although the voices are distorted and appear to be in an alien language. The transmission console is similar to radio due to these functions.
"Transmission console is used to send data and connect to active radio frequencies."

(Only when not prompted to enter security code. When prompted, it verifies a security code with the G.F.S. Olympus)
|“||Hello, this is Iwata from Nintendo. A president has to take things really seriously, even if it doesn't seem like it. It's understandable if you lose weight from stress... but I get fatter instead. Nobody thinks I'm taking it seriously.||„|

|“||Hello everybody, this is Tanabe from the Prime Series! So, although this time we’ve made the final episode of the Metroid Prime series, have you been enjoying it? So...I have been working together with the Metroid team for five years and, well, I think we are able to make pretty good things together. So...although work on the Metroid Prime series has finished for the moment, well...I think we’ll be making more after the Prime Series. Please, enjoy.||„|

|“||Well, hello all players of the Metroid Prime series! So, this is Kenji Yamamoto, the composer. Well, the Metroid series development began more than 20 years ago, and...well, if you listen well to Metroid Prime 1, Prime 2, and now Metroid Prime 3, and if you listen well, you might say, “Hey! This song is from back then!” And so, you might discover the nostalgic Metroid music that I included. So, listening to classic Metroid music might be one of the ways to enjoy playing the game. Anyway, please enjoy Metroid Prime 3!||„|
