Samus was getting a new assignment from the Intergalactic Space Police, but she was assigned to go investigate K-2L, her Home Planet that was attacked by Ridley's Army. Since them, it has been a vacant ruined earth settlement in the middle of space. The reason she has to go there is because there have been reports of lights flashing on the surface and Spaceships coming in and out. Once she gets to K-2L, she starts having terrible memories of the attack and of when her parents were killed by Ridley. She is then awakened from here daydreaming when the ground starts rumbling. A spaceship lands on the surface. Out of the spaceship come Ridley and and Space Pirates. K-2L is their Secret Hideout. She over hears them saying hey are going to launch a Phoenix into space to blow up half of the Universe (the one Samus and the good guys live on). Samus must gain access to Ridley's Hideout, hijack their plans, and kill Ridley once and for all; the fate of the Universe is in her hands!
