Test Group A14-1[edit | edit source]

Week 1[edit | edit source]

Transcript.png

Week 1 Examination

Germination was fast. Seeds have sprouted and are healthy. Radicals and hypocotyls appear strong. Initial examination of cells appears normal.

Items of Note:
A14-1.5 and A14-1.9 both display three cotyledons.
A14-1.2 is displaying a purple striped pattern.

Week 2[edit | edit source]

Transcript.png

Week 2 Examination

Seedlings continue to grow normally and will be ready for transplant. Roots appear healthy and are steadily growing.

Items of Note:
A14-1.5 and A14-1.9, despite their differences, are thriving well alongside the others.
A14-1.2 has died. Dissection revealed little to differentiate it from the others. The discoloration does not appear to be infection or parasite related.

Week 3[edit | edit source]

Transcript.png

Week 3 Examination

All seedlings have been successfully transplanted. Growth continues to appear healthy. Water intake is normal.

Test Group B02-3[edit | edit source]

Week 1[edit | edit source]

Transcript.png

Week 1 Examination

Germination has been slow. Only 50% of the seeds have sprouted, the radical is barely showing. I have my doubts on the other half. This group does have a higher chance of failure due to radiation exposure.

Week 2[edit | edit source]

Transcript.png

Week 2 Examination

The initial 50% of seeds initially sprouting have continued to show signs of growth. An addition 25% have also started to sprout. I will continue to observe the remainder.

I lost B02-3.02, 3.05, 3.06 and 3.08 to overwatering. These seedlings utilize far less water than previous hybrids. A potential benefit, but I'll need to monitor them closely for proper hydration.

Week 3[edit | edit source]

Transcript.png

Week 3 Examination

I've transplanted B02-3.01, 3.08, 3.10 and 3.15. The others have not formed a strong enough root bed to safely move. No further seeds have sprouted since Week 2.

Maintenance Requests[edit | edit source]

2nd Floor Atrium Vent[edit | edit source]

Transcript.png

Vent has been leaking. Need to investigate shaft for integrity. May need to replace bad section, but hopefully can get by with a patch job.

Main Level Corridor[edit | edit source]

Transcript.png

Pipes are suffering from corrosion. Needs welding and sealant. Sections of flooring may need to be replaced. Will need to take a closer look behind the scenes to investigate the extent of the damage.

Entry[edit | edit source]

Transcript.png

Sealant must be giving way for concrete base as water is building up among wiring in the floor. Need to find a solution for resealing and water removal.

Logs[edit | edit source]

Repairs, Repairs, Repairs[edit | edit source]

Transcript.png

If one more thing in this vault breaks, I'm going to scream. And by "scream" I mean "angrily slam the keys to this terminal" as I enter in yet another frustrated log. No one told me when I took over for Overseer Baht that I was inheriting a sinking ship.

From what Calvin tells me, the damage isn't even coming from us and our everyday lives. It's something external. And, of course, since it's external it's harder for him to assess the overall damage. We can't very well just unbury the vault.

On the good side, the reactors continue to run without a hitch. Two centuries and not a single incident that Old Rusty couldn't handle. So while the walls around us crumble, at least we'll have good lighting to witness it.

The Anti-Commonwealth[edit | edit source]

Transcript.png

Once again, I overheard a citizen telling one of the traders how much we don't need them. What is wrong with these people? Holt? Miranda? Don't they realize that without these traders we'd be starving? We wouldn't have half the items we need to get repairs done around here.

I get the fear to allow outsiders in. I was terrified when we first opened the vault after two centuries of isolation. But you'd think after ten years people would be more accepting and trust the faces we've grown to know so well. Some people still don't accept Horatio and the man's lived with us for years now.

And sure, I don't know what could happen in the future. Maybe it's just a matter of time before we allow the wrong person in. But it's a chance we have to take and a change they need to accept if we're going to survive for another generation.

Bobby DeLuca[edit | edit source]

Transcript.png

How hard can it be to catch Bobby DeLuca doing drugs? The vault is only so big. There's only so many places he can hide, and yet here I am, getting another complaint about his little habit.

It's frustrating on so many levels. Everyone's working hard, almost 'round the clock, and here's Bobby. He sleeps on the job, a job that he can't even do by the way. He gets Old Rusty to do everything. If he's not high, he's drunk. His sister backs up every story he comes up with... The list goes on.

Part of me just wants to lock him up, post a guard, and be done with it. Let him suffer through the withdrawal as his punishment. We all know he deserves it.

Food, Glorious Food[edit | edit source]

Transcript.png

Priscilla informed me that she lost the latest carrot crop. I wish we had the space to do more consistent rotations. On the bright side, while we'll miss the carrots now, we'll be even happier once they're back.

I will never forget the day when Maria made her first brahmin meat pie. I thought I was in heaven and that I'd never eat another steak in a box again (against Dr. Forsythe's wishes, I might add). Wasn't long before I'd had my fill and found myself enjoying that same old salisbury steak.

On the bright side, Maria's mutfruit pies are consistently good. Although, it's hard to go wrong when it comes to dessert! It helps that she likes to save them for special occassions. Probably smart on her part. She's been our chef long enough to know how easily our tastebuds give out on us.

OVERSEER EYES ONLY

Welcome To Vault 81[edit | edit source]

Transcript.png

Overseer Olivette -

We'd like to thank you for accepting your new role as Overseer of Vault 81. This program, as you know, represents a critical research opportunity. The work we do together will lead to a better future for humanity- not only in these times of uncertainty, but far into the future, whatever it holds.

Your background in academic and applied medical research will make you a capable leader to Vault 81 science staff, and your administrative background gives you the unique ability to lead and manage the general population as well.

Thank you again for reconsidering this offer of employment, and good luck.
Vault-Tec Human Resources

Prime Directive[edit | edit source]

Transcript.png

The mission of Vault 81 is to research infectious disease s and antibodies, with particular attention paid to potential mutations in a climate of heavy radiation.

Clinical trials are a vital part of Vault 81's mission. Trials will be performed in three stages. Stage I trials are to be conducted in petri dish cultures. Stage II trials are to be performed on the colony of heterocephalus glaber specimens, furnished by Vault-Tec. Stage III trials may be performed on the residential population of Vault 81.

Scientific staff will be restricted to the hermetically-sealed research area. This measure reduces the chance of cross-contamination between residential and scientific staff populations. The Overseer will have communication capabilities, but no other members of the residential population are to be made aware of the prime directive.

Admission Protocol[edit | edit source]

Transcript.png

As outlined in the Vault-Tec Operations Handbook, all staff members of Vault 81 will be required to participate in mandatory drills, held on-site at the discretion of the Overseer and Vault-Tec Administration. Admission drills are a requirement on all Beta Alert days, as indicated by the Vault-Tec early warning system.

In the event of an actual Alpha Alert, Vault 81 residents will be admitted into the Vault by Overseer's staff. All scientific staff should report to their workstations immediately, avoiding contact with general population, especially those whom they may know personally. (If necessary, Overseer should remind staff of their confidentiality status.)

All residents should be admitted in an orderly fashion, and given the approved welcome address in the common area atrium by the Overseer. The Overseer should then use this terminal to confer privately with the head of Science staff, by now safely sealed in the research area.

Evacuation Protocol[edit | edit source]

Transcript.png

Vault 81 is not to be evacuated under any circumstances except a direct all-clear command from Vault-Tec central HQ.

Research reports should be archived on the primary mainframe. Chemical compounds and other physical materials may be deposited in the marked receptacle, only by the Overseer, and only after a successful Stage III trial phase.

In the event of a Vault-Tec ordered evacuation, Overseer must be prepared to dispose of residential population by incineration (propellant nozzles are pre-installed in all residential living quarters) to avoid contamination with outside population. This disposal is at the discretion of the Overseer unless specifically mandated as part of the Vault-Tec evacuation order.

Overseer's Private Logs[edit | edit source]

A Job's a Job?[edit | edit source]

Transcript.png

I can't believe it. Vault-Tec must have really been desperate for an Overseer candidate after Duncan fell ill. I'm certainly qualified for this job, but with my politics, how could they think I'm a good candidate for this kind of program?

Maybe there's more to this than I'm seeing. They still haven't given me a full briefing on the work we'll be doing here, but I'm not stupid. I'm pretty sure it's going to involve human trials.

I won't jump to any conclusions, though. Let's see how this plays out. If they're crossing any ethical lines with me they'll be in a Congressional hearing before they know what's hit them.

Drills, Drills, Drills[edit | edit source]

Transcript.png

These researchers are willing to put up with a lot. Today is our fifth drill of the week, and this time I had to make the calls in the middle of the night. Half of these "scientists" are just kids - between cramming for finals and sleeping off Friday hangovers I'm shocked as many of them staggered in as did.

I guess the pay is worth it. I know I wasn't earning that kind of money as a grad student.

What to do?[edit | edit source]

Transcript.png

It's much worse than I thought. I was finally given my full briefing today. Not only is Vault-Tec asking us to do clinical trials on humans; they've got some serious backers in government. I can't just blow the whistle on this.

I've seen the admission roster. There are good people planning to live in Vault 81, and I've little doubt the Vaults will come into use eventually. I won't reward the trust of these people by treating them like guinea pigs.

I feel trapped. I don't know what to do.

The Day[edit | edit source]

Transcript.png

It's done. I got the call early this morning - another beta drill. It's always Rosario who has to call. Her voice was trembling, and she couldn't get off the phone soon enough. She knew. Sure enough, the warning was upgraded within a few hours, and the news was reporting confirmed launches soon after that.

I made a decision. I deliberately sabotaged the phone list. Such a simple thing, but it meant that none of the science staff received a notification about the drill.
The residents are beginning to show up, and we'll have our hands busy admitting everyone.

Science Staff[edit | edit source]

Transcript.png

I'm no criminal mastermind. Clearing the phone list prevented most of the science staff from showing up, but three still made it in. Flint and Collins are both my age, and live in the Fens. They had time to get here with the general population. Burrow is just an overachiever, and came by in the morning just to see if there would be a drill today. Figures.

They've reported to the research area. The Vault protocols engaged automatically and sealed them in. They're already busy with their work, especially since there are only three of them.

They Suspect[edit | edit source]

Transcript.png

Burrow and Flint are getting restless in there. Collins and that robot - he's calling her Curie now - are keeping the mood relatively steady, but I think they already suspect that I have no intention of allowing them to implement a Stage III trial.

Not sure what to do. They've got access to the delivery nozzles. If they choose to, they'll be able to infect the population with whatever they want. Need to keep them calm.

Forgiveness[edit | edit source]

Transcript.png

I've made a grim choice. I sabotaged the delivery nozzles in all the resident quarters as soon as I was able. I didn't expect Burrow to notice so soon. Hell, I didn't expect Collins to get so close to a Phase III trial so quickly. I didn't expect half of what's happened in the past few months.

Cutting off communication is a cowardly thing to do, but what options do I have? They'll have food and water in there as long as they need. I just can't let them go through with human trials for God-knows-what Vault-Tec plans to do with their research.

I only hope that somehow they can forgive me, and live out their years in peace over there.

Testing 123[edit | edit source]

Transcript.png

<K.Collins> Testing. Dr. Olivette, do you copy?
<O.Olivette> I do, Kenneth. Everything good over there?
<K.Collins> Just another drill day, right, Overseer?
<O.Olivette> It is, and thank God for that.

Where is everyone?[edit | edit source]

Transcript.png

<K.Collins> Overseer, there are just three of us over here. What's going on?
<K.Collins> Olivette, are you getting this?
<O.Olivette> Sorry, Kevin, it's been a madhouse on this side. Only three?
<K.Collins> Myself, Jim Flint, and that kid, Burrow. Where is everyone else?
<O.Olivette> Not over here. Residents are being admitted. They started showing up in droves once the news started broadcasting.
<K.Collins> That's the same way I heard. You'd think Vault-Tec would have had enough warning to call at least a beta drill for staff this morning.
<O.Olivette> Something must have gone wrong.

Phase I Trial[edit | edit source]

Transcript.png

<K.Collins> We've been pretty limited down here, but we've been focused on antibiotics and have our first petri trials underway.
<O.Olivette> I saw the data last night. It's promising, but do you think it's ready?
<K.Collins> The trials just started, and the virus we're going after has a few days of inoculation. But I'm optimistic that later this week we'll see positive results.
<O.Olivette> Okay. Keep me posted, and don't begin Phase II trials until I have an opportunity to go through the new data.
<K.Collins> Of course. Have a good afternoon, Overseer.

Food Extruder Issue[edit | edit source]

Transcript.png

<M.Burrow> Overseer, do you have a minute?
<O.Olivette> This system isn't instantaneous, Burrow. I hope you haven't been waiting for a reply all morning.
<M.Burrow> Sorry, Overseer. I wanted to notify you about an issue with our food extruder.
<O.Olivette> Okay, I see it now. Looks like a clog in the protein tank. You weren't able to address it on your end?
<M.Burrow> No, Overseer. Hardware failures on the residential side must be addressed over there. We can't get to the tanks or nozzles to repair them.
<O.Olivette> Okay, Burrow. I'll have maintenance down there immediately. Go stand by and have Collins contact me if there are still issues in about ten minutes, okay?
<M.Burrow> Thank you, Overseer. I'll go there now.

Phase II Trial[edit | edit source]

Transcript.png

<K.Collins> Good news, Dr. Olivette - We've tweaked our formula based on Phase I trial results, and I think we're ready to go with Phase II.
<O.Olivette> How's the mole rat population doing?
<K.Collins> Very well. The specimens Vault-Tec provided are remarkably hardy. Flint has been doing some radiation testing on them.
<O.Olivette> Is that in the protocols?
<K.Collins> Not technically, but we noticed some weird stuff with the kibble provided for them. (Burrow got pretty sick for a day or two - don't ask) Flint's been looking into it. These suckers are big to begin with, and we're thinking it's genetic.
<O.Olivette> Tampered with?
<K.Collins> Something like that. I think Vault-Tec must have been running some experiments with them. They're all unusually large. A few demonstrate bioluminescence. At least one appears more intelligent than normal.
<O.Olivette> Do you think they're still a useful control?
<K.Collins> We've divided the colonies, separated the most unusual specimens, and put the control colony on a new diet taken from our own food supply. It's not ideal, but I think we're okay.
<O.Olivette> Very well. Give me the evening to go over your data again, but I think you're clear to begin Phase II unless I find anything I don't expect.

Delivery Mech. Failure[edit | edit source]

Transcript.png

<M.Burrow> Overseer?
<O.Olivette> Yes, Burrow, what is it?
<M.Burrow> I've noticed an issue with our delivery mechanisms. Do you know if anyone has tampered with the nozzles in the residential quarters on your side?
<O.Olivette> I don't know. What are you doing with the delivery system, anyway? The Phase II trial just began.
<M.Burrow> I know, Overseer. I just thought it would be a good idea to run tests on the delivery system before we reached Phase III.
<O.Olivette> If we reach Phase III. Human trials are not to be undertaken lightly. What kind of tests were you hoping to run, anyway?
<M.Burrow> Just a placebo vapor, to make sure the nozzles are dispensing mist properly. The residents wouldn't even know we had done anything. I guess that's the idea, though.
<O.Olivette> I'll look into the nozzle issue on my end, Burrow. In the meantime please do not use the delivery system without my direct approval.

Please Answer[edit | edit source]

Transcript.png

<K.Collins> Doctor, please get in touch. I know what you've done. Honestly, I don't blame you. Performing the Phase III trial on non-consenting humans is a breach of ethics, at least according to the world we used to live in.
<K.Collins> I can keep Burrow together for a while, but Flint's already suspicious. What are we supposed to do over here? I can only lie to them for so long without some actual response from you.
<K.Collins> Damn it, Olivette. You can't be such a hypocrite that you'd condemn us to die in the name of your personal sense of morality. I know your politics, but I never thought you'd actually leave men for dead. Please reconsider this.

Breeding Program Update[edit | edit source]

Transcript.png

Mole rat breeders: We finally got the breeding program stabilized. As earlier reports indicated, the mole rats show unusual degrees of aggression in captivity. This may be due to growth hormones. Recent generations seem more docile. Although some of the keepers are complaining that the lab animals are watching them, which is preposterous.

Serum production[edit | edit source]

Transcript.png

We have created 197 distinct serums that can treat 36% of known viruses. This is a modest improvement from last year's 33% treatment rate. However 11 of the serums account for 61% of the treatment results, which is encouraging.

At this time, only 19% of serums have the potential to be mass produced. We have tasked out latest robot lab assistant to find ways to synthesize more of them efficiently.

The crop rotation implemented by the hydroponics manager has proven successful for supplying the vault with adequate food. We have not had to intervene, which has eliminated the risk that the vault inhabitants would discover the secret part of the vault. So far they do not appear to suspect the true nature of their vault.

The greenhouse would be a perfect place to introduce class C4 and D1 viruses into the population, as well as potential cures should a disease get to virulent. I'm recommending installing hidden sprayers in the ceiling.

The vault inhabitants have unexpectedly repurposed this room to be a kind of store for selling and repairing their possessions. It has allowed this observation port to record interactions between many of the vault citizens.

This shop will become an important disease vector for spreading airborne, class B2 viruses. It will also be valuable for observing the effects of disease on social and economic relationships.

This room will become a backup treatment location, along with the commissary. The primary will still be the clinic under the assumption that severely ill patients will all be taken there.

Vault 81 Mission Statement[edit | edit source]

Transcript.png

From: Vault-Tec Board of Directors
To: Chief Scientist, Vault 81, Medical Lab Partition

We are entrusting you with a mission that is critical to all humanity. Vault 81 will be used to wipe out disease as we know it in the human race.

Your partition of the vault has been equipped with state of the art medical research equipment, including the new Contagions Vulnerability Robotic Infirmary Engineer, aka Curie. There is a centuries worth of biological and chemical supplies. There are the genetically adapted morerats. And most important, a vault full of test subjects.

As with all great progress, the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. You will be infecting the people of the vault with diseases in an attempt to have them develop antibodies. Some may not survive, but you must ensure that a breeding population is always maintained. It will take many generations, but with proper procedures you should be able to develop a disease resistant group of humans.

Your work will be the work of generations. Each generation of scientists must select a chief scientist. Curie will make sure that each reads this mission statement to keep the vault focused over the centuries. We wish you the best of luck.

Curie's Terminal[edit | edit source]

Do not read! Yes, this means even you, Doctor Collins!

INITIALIZING GREETINGS, LABORATORY[edit | edit source]

Transcript.png

I have been ordered by Doctor Collins to add an entry to this terminal. Doctor Collins was most insistent that this is my terminal. I explained several times that robots cannot own property as per RobCo policy, but his orders were most clear and insistent. I will comply with Doctor Collins' wishes and maintain a log when ordered to.

COLLEAGUES[edit | edit source]

Transcript.png

I have completed my analysis and integration of the data to make me a capable research assistant. I have been commanded to provide an assessment of my colleagues.

Doctor Flint is objectively brilliant. Although Doctor Collins repeatedly calls him "brusque." But I find Doctor Flint's commands and speech patterns easier to parse. His observations are always very astute, and I am learning much about working with cell cultures from him.

Monsieur Burrow is perfectly acceptable to work with. He performs menial tasks which my programming is perfectly suited for, such as carrying heavy lab equipment. This is strange, because my capabilities for such a task are far beyond those of a human male. I am told by Doctor Collins that this is a sign of respect that Monsieur Burrow is making. This does not compute.

EULOGY[edit | edit source]

Transcript.png

Doctor Burrow is deceased. Post-mortem indicates he expired from a severe cardiac arrest, brought on by advanced age. He died at 5:01am shortly after waking. In accordance with the doctor's pre-existing orders, the body was cremated and placed in the specified urn, alongside Doctors Collins and Flint.
Doctor Burrow was of great assistance in continuing the work left to us by the others. My last order was to continue working on our projects alone, "so that our deaths will not be in vain."
My processors are fully committed to furthering the study of pathogens and viruses for the betterment of mankind to honor this last request. Message ends.

Boot Up[edit | edit source]

Transcript.png

We're hamstrung with only three researchers. Decided to make a few modifications to this Mr. Handy robot. Should be really useful for speeding up some of our labwork.

I've been pretty anxious since admittance day. As if the world ending wasn't enough, I'm very concerned about Olivette's motives. Dusting off some of my old robotics chops has been just the distraction I've needed.

Personality Profile[edit | edit source]

Transcript.png

I've decided to write a suite of custom personality settings for the robot. She's a little bit of Liza (I really hope she got into her Vault down in DC.) and a little bit my grad school fling from Versailles back in '46.

I'm loading her databanks with every great body of work I have access to here. Kant, Einstein, Born, Darwin, Curie, Faraday, Turing, Braun. She'll have so much to learn.

It's already made her feel so much more like a peer in the lab, as opposed to an appliance. I'm calling her "Curie". I know, I know. I was never a subtle man.

Therapeutic[edit | edit source]

Transcript.png

Curie's been doing great. Flint's finally stopped treating me like a crazy person for insisting we address her as a human, and I swear Burrow is deferential to her in a way that reminds me of seeing him around Rebecca, back during the drills. It's actually endearing to see.

Most importantly, and perhaps more surprisingly, she's bringing a sense of normalcy to the lab, keeping us all a bit more grounded. Anything to keep our minds off the situation we're in is all too welcome.

I've tuned her personality matrix a lot, but it's beginning to feel wrong to manipulate her. I'm going to leave her programming alone for now, and just see how she evolves as she keeps learning more.

Ongoing Directive[edit | edit source]

Transcript.png

Haven't touched this terminal in years - not since I "gave" it to Curie as her own. Seeing her reaction to having something of her own was transformational. It just seemed wrong to violate that, and so it's truly been for her eyes only ever since.

This final entry is an exception, and I suppose it's being written out of habit, as a man used to a lifetime of recording his experiments. We lost Flint today, and Burrow has to spend more time helping me around the lab than actually performing research these days.

So, if only to report my findings - Curie has been a remarkable success. She transcended my expectations of robotic programming. Her personality feels as genuine as my own. Her interest in scientific research is insatiable, and seeing her struggle with concepts like mortality has been completely moving.

Truly, she is my greatest work. I only hope that one day she can see more of the world. If only I could be there to witness her reaction to the blue skies and butterflies she's only heard me sing about.
