other: aurora chamber energy cell skip
Head up the stairs with the data terminal, then turn to face the top door. You should see the raised walkway that lowers when you put in the energy cells. Just left of it are some bars sticking out; space jump off the ledge and try to screw attack into them, aiming for the left edge. If you hit the right spot, you'll be placed at the door and can get the pirate code with three energy cells.
- If you're having trouble with this, try it from the center of the room, with the destroyed stasis tank and debris. There are higher places to stand here, and the debris can also be used to do a ghetto jump.
- The three energy cells fastest to get are #5 (Xenoresearch B), #6 (Command Courtyard), and the one in Phazon Quarry. #5 and #6 are required just to get past those rooms, and #1 is right there when you land on the Valhalla.
