Property of Area 51, return if found

— Written on the Alien Ship

Area 51 is a military base in Nevada, and a former testing ground for experimental government aircraft and extraterrestrial phenomena. Area 51 housed some alien technology, including a captured flying saucer which was later re-captured by aliens, but then crashed somewhere in California.

AppearancesEdit

Area 51 is mentioned in Fallout, as a print on a flying saucer in the Alien Ship special encounter. It was to appear as a location in Fallout 2 and be inhabited by a group of scientists, but was cut for the final version of the game.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

In one of the first versions of Fallout 2, Lynette's talking head was supposed to be used for a spokesperson for a group of scientists living in the ruins of Area 51.
