There seems to be some trouble with the date of Sgt Allen's misadventure. The man does not sign his holotape as a paladin, elder, or any brotherhood title... nor does he self-identify as a member of the Brotherhood. Neither does he refer to Roger Maxson with such a title. He refers to Captain Maxson, and he identifies himself as a Sergeant of the United States Army. Even if we assume he was a fresh, green recruit of 18 when he joined the army- unlikely, as he had attained the rank of sergeant- by the time he supposedly undertakes this mission, he would be 75 years old. I don't think a member of the BoS- even a former member- would refer to Maxson as Captain or fail to identify himself with them. I don't remember there being a specific reference to the time these men died in FO, so what's the cannonicity of this reference? If it's because people are assuming that Allen lead the group of deserters from the BoS in 2134... I think this is a false assumption. For one, the men who left traveled southwest from the Lost Hills bunker, and West-Tek is north-northwest. For another, this guy would have been an ancient dinosaur by the time the exodus occurred, likely not welcome at Lost Hills (as he never bought in to the pseudo-religion of the BoS). Thoughts? It seems more likely these are people Maxson sent out from Mariposa to see what could be salvaged from the ruins of West-Tek, sent in to a dangerous place very well prepared, who fell victim to their own lack of caution.
