Okay.. recalled _why_ I hate Metroid... I am stuck.. with _no_ clue what so ever where to go.
Everywhere left to my ship has been explored... I am certain of it. Nothing on the map shows something _not_ explored. I have gone through _every_ door... and yes, I have tried missles on every wall that looks just slightly different (in some cases I was not even that discerning with my choices as to walls I shot, bombed and used missiles on). I have fifteen missiles (not certain if that is all I can get directly left of my ship, BTW). I have ball mode... I have ball bombs. I have gone to spots that I was previous, to see if I missed something. I cannot see any sign of something I was missing. I have even jumped into spots in the roof where there was a gap (this does nothing, BTW).
Directly right of my ship, there is a green... greenish door. Ever weapon I have, I have released a full barrage onto it. My plasma shots, my missiles (in fact my full fifteen missile capacity has been fired at this door at one point). I have bombed it completely and totally. I have even shot the cliff faces directly above it (at each spot where there was a ledge I fired a barrage of missiles into the cliff face).
I figured, there was a way to the top of the rock formation that blocks me to this door. So I got to the top... figured I would try running across the top of this rock formation, and leap--seeing if I can get somewhere on the _other_ side of the chasm.
And trust me.. this has occurred in _every_ other Metroid game I have played.
I will say this: the Space Pirates need to build armour out of the stuff the rock formations are made of--at that point, I think we could all agree we would be screwed
