BoS Archive: ARP Background
- Fort Defiance: The holotape is on a table inside the southern barracks room on the fourth floor with Senior Knight Wilson's Terminal, next to the Mission 099-01 Orders note.
Hailey Takano: Is the connection good?
Grant McNamara: Yeah. I'm reading you.
Takano: Excellent. I'm transmitting the program now. We'll send it multiple times. The static is playing hell with data integrity.
Grant: Three copies should be enough to deal with any corruption.
Takano: We've wracked our brains over here and we've come across a solution for where you can use this program. Vault-Tec University. Can you get there?
Grant: VTU? Shit. That's in the heart of Responder territory.
Takano: Who? That's not important. If the facility is still operational they have a fully Automated Research Lab. It's perfect.
Grant: Do you have any other options?
Takano: No. We don't. Keep transmitting any viable DNA sample you get of these... Scorchbeasts. We'll help as long as we can. But if we go dark, that lab can give you the information you need. Our preliminary research... Well, it's a possible mass extinction event if the threat isn't contained.
Takano: Listen, if we don't talk again... Know that our thoughts are with you, Grant.
Grant: Thanks. Appalachia out.
