This track is an arrangement of two music pieces featured in Metroid Prime. The first song plays on the title screen, while the second track is a slightly remixed version of the theme that plays during the ending credits. It also includes narration, which is based upon an unused monologue found in the files of Metroid Prime itself. This song was rearranged by its original composer, Kenji Yamamoto. The narration at the beginning says, "In the reaches of space, beneath the surface of Planet Zebes, Samus Aran faced the Space Pirates. She destroyed their operation, wiped out the parasites called Metroids, and defeated Mother Brain. But the pirates were far from finished..."
