Planet Gradius Satellite Orbit is the first stage in Gradius V. It takes place partly within the Gradian Force's sub-orbital space station and partly within space.


The level starts off in a large hangar/spaceship and then exits into an area full of Zelos Forces, not dissimilar to stage 1 of both Gradius II and Gradius IV, or stage 4 of Gradius Galaxies (sans them spawning enemies).
