Collision Course

Episode #356
She stared at the display in disbelief. It red in large letters "EMERGENCY! EMERGENCY!"

"What?" Samus had installed this alarm not only to keep her informed of any problems with the suit, but with her ship as well. "Adam! What's going on here?"

"There's another ship approaching ours!" Adam replied. "It appeared out of nowhere and is on a direct collision course! We need to alter our course now!"
