Metroid Prime Conquest was a mod for Forces of Corruption originally released on August 27, 2009. It replaced the Zann Consortium of the original game with the Space Pirates from our beloved Metroid series, which just turned 25 today. At the conception of Metroid: Federation at War, Admiral Ace requested to complete Metroid Prime Conquest by using its content in his new, altogether more ambitious Metroid mod. Metroid: Federation at War may not be completed yet, but in the meantime I invite those who haven't already to try out this smaller mod.
This is the original readme for the mod.
This modification for Star Wars:Empire at War:Forces of Corruption completely replaces the Zann Consortium with the Space Pirates of the Metroid franchise.
The Space Pirate/Phazon faction is somewhat similar to the Zann Consortium, but focuses on themes from the Metroid Prime series and replaces all of the units and heroes with characters from the Metroid franchise.

I'm glad I could make it to releasing a second version of this mod. I've added a few new heroes and units and enhanced the existing ones, adding detail to a lot of the reskins. I also redid the Space Pirate interface and added music. First I'd like to point out a few things. If I do make another version, I will not release it until the Galactic Federation is a faction and all the Star Wars planets are replaced by Metroid ones. While this mod is just a fun Zann Consortium replacement, I'd really like to make a full TC. I really need modelers though. Secondly, as awesome as Ridley is, he's kind of buggy. When using his hijacking in space, make sure you don't activate it until he's in range of the ships you want to take, otherwise it will kill him. I hope you enjoy this Star Wars:Empire at War mod and I am looking forward to seeing if it gets as much feedback as the first release.
