The Data Chip is a small disc containing the locations of the four main generators needed to shut Dorn's supposed secret weapon. Handed to Samus during Dorn's invasion on the X-nelian Mine. After fending off Dorn's first wave of his army, Samus escapes with J-Yel to a secret hanger location where her ship had docked. The disc was designed for Adam Malkovich to analyze and interpret the information. The disc also contains the location of Dal-G's relocated secret base, but cannot access that information until the four generators are shut down. After Samus's suit malfunction, speculating Dorn's affiliation with Space Pirates, and Ridley's rebirth, Samus questions Dal-G motives and is eager to speak to him immediately.
