Samus Aran sits in an almost empty room in an office building on the planet Anadyr V. A glowlamp provides the only light in the room, a small aurora near the northwest side of the room. She stares into a HoloVision, watching the recent news. A Galactic Federation cruiser, Nova Lord, has gone missing in the Tetra Galaxy, near the outskirts of the planet Arcterra in the Alimbic Cluster. The last known contact was three days ago, with Federation Commando Ron Wyatt issuing a distress signal, indicating the mysterious faction known as Crimson Hunters was responsible. However, even though the faction is well known, the leader is unknown to anyone but Crimson Hunters members, as prisoners captured by the faction have never made it out alive to date.
Tired, the veteran shuts off the HoloVision and staggers over to a desk, where she sits down on a metal hoverchiar. She rotates the chair and stares out into the Anadyr V skyline. The city is like a machine; never ceasing at any time, constantly moving, and can only be truly disrupted if the planet were to be invaded by an enemy faction.

The skilled pilot was hired by Samus Aran shortly after the end of the Gorea Crisis and the destruction of Oubliette. Preston exits the gunship and notices Aran incapacitated. He lifts her up and into the gunship, but not before noticing a data card on the spacepad. He picks up the card and slides it in his pocket before carrying the incapacitated bounty hunter on to the gunship on his shoulder. The ship lifts off, away from the metropolitan Petroplask and out of Anadyr V’s atmosphere. The ship jumps into hyperspace, en route to the planet Daiban, capital planet of the Galactic Federation.
