Once you go into the ship, the game will switch to a cutscene where the BSL
research station crashes into SR-388 (and, presumably, blows the planet up.)
Samus' ship will narrowly escape the explosion, as always. After that, it'll
switch to a view of Samus in her brand-spankin' new Omega Suit. She will then
talk to herself:
"That perfect military mind...
The wisdom of Adam Malkovich continued to serve even after death. Until today,
I had no idea that the minds of leaders and scientists were frequently uploaded
to computers. My incredible reunion with Adam may have saved the universe...
But how will the beings of the universe view our resolve? I doubt they will
understand what we did...the danger we barely averted. They will hold tribunals
and investigations. They will hold us responsible. Adam understood this, and
spoke to me in my anger...
'Do not worry. One of them will understand. One of them must.'
I've reflected upon his words, and I see the wisdom in them. We are all bound
by our experiences. They are the limits of our consciousness.
But in the end, the human soul will ever reach for the truth...
This is what Adam taught me.
Just one detail still bothers me. This ship can only be started manually. Yet,
before I faced the Omega Metroid, the ship moved on its own, guided by
someone's hands. Is it possible? Adam...?"
Then it switches to the ship's computer, and Adam speaks...
"Lady, what's troubling you?
You wonder how I started the ship? Just think about it.
They lent me a hand..."
Then it switches to a shot of the Etecoons and Dachoras, sleeping on the floor
of Samus' ship...aww...
Then the credits scroll by, and then we get to the good stuff...
Depending on certain factors, you will see one of five different poses of Samus
after the credits, each one revealing more and more of her body...kinda like
strip poker, no?
Over 4 hours: You see a picture of Samus, completely in her suit, triumphantly
shaking her fist.
Under 4 hours w/o 100%: You see a picture of Samus without her helmet on,
looking back at you and giving you a thumbs-up.
Under 2 hours w/o 100%: Samus takes off her entirely and is left with nothing
but a blue bikini-like outfit. She's leaning on something, and her head is
tilted back...a somewhat suggestive pose, to be sure.
Over 2 hours w/100%: The bikini outfit again, but this time, you see much more
of her body, and the side view of this picture reveals a lot...
Under 2 hours w/100%: THE best ending. Samus is in the bikini outfit, but the
picture's zoomed out so you can see her whole body. Additionally, a blue, faint
image of Samus is on the left side of the screen. Quality stuff.
