First visit[edit]

Go through the double doors into the main dining hall. At the far end of the hall, directly opposite the travel tube, is a canteen. Jump onto the counter, smash one of the windows with your pistol or fist, and jump into the waste disposal shaft, which leads to Trash Bay and ensures you are adequately armed for the upcoming fight.

Second visit[edit]

In the main dining hall, there is a staircase on the south wall. Follow this downstairs to the kitchen, and downstairs again to the meat store. Outside the door, you will hear a pitched battle taking place, and the door will open. Kill the monsters inside. The Hell knight will drop an engineering security pass, which you will need to gain access to Engine Room. Be warned that the Hell knight will reappear (apparently not dead, just incapacitated) once you take the card.

Return to the main dining hall, and observe that a switch has now appeared on the officers' table in the north-west corner of the room, next to the red-lit double doors on the north wall. Press the switch and this unlocks the doors, revealing a lift behind. Ride the lift down to the private dining room, and activate the command console, which unlocks another command code. An alarm will sound, and you will be summoned to the engine room. Ride the lift back up to the dining hall, and return to Engineering.

Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the main dining hall, one of the chairs of the long tables with circular cutouts is set at a crooked angle. Open the wall behind it for two medikits and a security armor. (sector 212)


  • The security pass held by the Hell knight in the freezer room may not drop when it is killed. This makes the engine room inaccessible by any means other than the noclip cheat. It is unknown if this is due to source port conflicts. (Tested on GZDoom 4.3.3 and 4.4.2)
