E2M1: Station Alpha is the first map in episode The Road to Eternity of 2002 A Doom Odyssey. It was designed by Paul Corfiatis and uses his music track "Banjo lovers delight". In the 10th anniversary edition some geometry modifications were applied but the things population was left unchanged.

Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the starting room, climb the crates to the shotgun and jump to the northernmost crate. Jump through the fake wall to the north from the crate to reach a secret passage leading to a green armor. (sector 13)
  2. Exit the starting room and use the lift to see a satyr face in front of you (southwest from the entrance). Press on the right half of the satyr face to open up a room to the north, containing a chaingun, a box of ammo, and a box of shotgun shells. (sector 38)
  3. At the entrance to the maze area at the west end of the map, go a bit west and press on the northwest wall. Take the lift down to find a light amplification visor, a medikit, and some ammo. (sector 59)
  4. In the area mentioned in Secret #3 you can see a soul sphere behind two windows at the western end of the area. Open the wall between the windows to reach it. (sector 53)
  5. Approach the switch near Secret #4 (northeast from it), then go to the east end of the maze area to find a berserk pack. (sector 58)
  6. Look at the lion faces outside of the exit door. One of them (the one to the south to be more precise) has three candles instead of two. Press on this face to find a computer area map. (sector 109)
