  1. Pass the saucer on the far western section of the map and jump to the teleporter behind it. You can walk up the neon walkway to claim rockets and a soul sphere. (sector 1480)
  2. At the area to the south that requires three keys, from the saucer on the west side (which you can access with either the red key or via the saucer on the east side from the yellow key area), drop down to the north to get medikits and an energy cell pack. (sector 1732)
