Elite Commando Unit Omicron is a special elite group of commandos who possess high levels of phazon enhancements in their weaponry and defenses.
This squad of commandos was considered one of the best of the best amongst the space pirate ranks. A large amount of what remained of the phazon that existed on the pirate homeworld once Phaaze was destroyed. Their nearly impenitrable armor, along with their powerful phazon-based weaponry, compliments their heavy training and high skill, making them a force to be reckoned with.
This group participated in the battle of Norion, disabling Generator B before Rundus arrived, forcing them to retreat momentarily before attempting a counteroffensive before their takeoff craft arrived. Their armor protected them from from the freezing attacks of Rundus, though they still suffered heavy injuries, though no casualties from within their own squad.
When the pirate homeworld was attacked, this unit was used to defend the High Commands chamber, and managed to hold off nearly several dozen Federation Marines and PED troopers before being ordered to aid the High Command in their relocation.
Their skills have been put to use many times by the space pirates since then, and through their actions on one mission deep into the Galactic Federation, the knowledge of the Metroid hatchling being held on the Ceres space colony. This knowledge would eventually result in the capturing of the Metroid hatchling by Ridley.
When the unit was sent to capture the massive phazon source detected on Lacarus Prime, however, all their training hadn't prepared them for the fury that was the reborn Metroid Prime. Though they managed to summon their support ATC's, they were annihilated, leaving only those who had remained to aid in the diversion alive.
This unit wears an advanced form of phazon-enhanced armor capable of defending them from even the most powerful of weapons fire, and wield powerful phazon-enhanced assault rifles. The dash jets placed into their backs give them enhanced movement, and their cloaking systems increase their ability to move through heavily defended areas with relative ease. They wield a duel energy blade built into their rifles, and an energy shield built into their other arm, provided adequate defense against energy and explosive fire. Finally, they have a thermal-targeting visor allowing them to track targets with ease.
Rynoth - Commander of the squad, he was once one of the personal guards of the Science Team Commander. Being promoted to the leader of unit Omicron, he led various missions, including the defense of the space pirate homeworld and the discovery of the location of the metroid hatchling. His career would come to an end on Lacarus Prime where he was annihilated by Metroid Prime, along with more than half of his unit.
