Quick pitch

Samus receives a Chozo distress signal that lures her back to planet Zebes where she became the fierce warrior she is today under the operations and tutelage of Old Bird. There she discovers her old nemesis Ridley has reconstructed a Space Pirate base of operations, killed the remaining Chozo that had inhabited the planet, and abducted a unit of GF soldiers and scientists for experimentation. After his many defeats at the hands of the Chozo Warrior and bounty hunter, Ridley seeks to augment his Space Pirates using metroid DNA in order to match Samus' power.

I figure in this we can explore the whole Chozo enlightenment/transcendentalism thing, introduce Armstrong Houston, and do something new and interesting with the Space Pirates via metroid dna augmentations. Maybe address the issue Jonah was talking about where other races (perhaps humans) are/were trying to steal Chozo technology/information because they're dicks like that.

I like the idea that Samus arrives and thinks all the Chozo are dead, but later discovers Old Bird was the one that sent out the distress signal but maybe Ridley took credit for it because he couldn't find Old Bird and didn't want to seem incompetent in front of his men or Samus.

I have no problem re-writing that, it was just a spur of the moment thing I was playing with. I have no attachment to the A.I.'s personality or gender at all.

Might be way too nit-picky for this early but... not sure about the "Lady" part... In my mind, I imagine the AI as less "personable" and more simply an I/O for an OS... Thoughts?
