Ok, so Aliens have a bit of a...Troubling history within the Fallout Community, on the few instances I witnessed discussions it was either a love or a hate relationship, I was on the love side, but I do understand the reason behind the hate, so I decided to create this topic to discuss Fallout Alien Lore and, also, what possibilities we could expect from such concept.


Also, a little bit of context, why did I decide to post this topic now? So a long time ago I stumbled upon this weird mod:


https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/mods/35302?tab=description

So, apparently there was a Project called Mount Zeta AKA Fallout New Hampshire, which was suppose to follow the aftermath of the crashed Alien Mothership that was shot down by the Lone Wanderer during the Mothership Zeta DLC. The plot concept was immediately enticing to me, the ship crashed into the New Hampshire area, which is ironic but not a coincidence, and the surviving Aliens established a colony there and they developed a technology to manipulate the weather.

So the whole premisse was to find out what was happening and, during the way, encounter some weird alien experiments. I really liked the concept, unfortunately the development stopped, the old Discord server was ditched and the new one was supposed to be organized so they could continue development, but it never happend, the server is still online, with the logo and everything, It's just...Dead, I visited the server yesterday with the hope of finding something, but alas, I found nothing. So to honor the memory of the project, I decided to stir up this discussion.

I don't know man, I'm not really into aliens as part of the fallout universe. It just doesn't really fit for me. If they had technology that would allow them to travel between galaxies with ease then in my mind they would have some form of technology that would allow them to monitor different planets and they would be aware of the disaster that is on earth, so what would the benefit be for them to make the effort and take the risk of travelling to earth? Unless they just really curious

To be honest, It's hinted that they were partially responsible for the disaster on Earth, also, who knows, since they're a different species, they might have a completely distinct way of viewing things, some things might seem silly to us and important to then or vice-versa.

It works as a good novelty. Easter eggs and DLCs and such. But when it comes to the serious lore and motivations of factions and characters; just leave it to men and not to aliens.

Ayy lmao

Why? It is possible to incorporate it in a lore friendly way, is there a specific reason you don't like? For example, Area-51 would be such a cool place to explore, and we have even a mod for FNV that gives us a taste, It was quite an atmospheric mod as well.

Here it is in case you want to experience it for yourself:

My point is, it is possible to make an interesting story with this concept.

Honesty I'm unsure about the aliens on one end I think they are stupid but on the other it was a cool dlc to play in fallout 3 so I'm neutral.

I don't think they're stupid, it all depends on how it is implemented, even if I really like Mothership Zeta, I do realize the way it was designed makes the whole thing seem like a joke. But, in contrast, we have the Cabot questline on FO4 and it was very well executed, imo of course.
