Developed by Doctor Aldwin Morley 14 years before the Great War, as a secretive prototype to the Enclave’s Plasma Pistol, this prototype plasma pistol also proves a conspiracy theory suspected long before the War. At the time, concern was focused on energy cell drain and weight problems caused by the coolant coils, but resulted in the frame being approved and used for the final design. Shortly after, it was stolen from the conspiracy by an organization called Quaere Verum, but was buried in a safe in a desert after being revealed to the Enclave by Morley, who had been posing as a double-agent and allowing the group to steal the Novasurge prototype before prompting Enclave agents to exterminate the group. The pistol was later taken by aliens who, most likely unknowingly brought up both the safe that contained the gun and the computer terminal required to remotely unlock the safe.
