The Death Ray Control is a location on board Mothership Zeta.



Death Ray Control is a one large room which serves as a Death Ray control center. There are four power generators in the corners of the room player has to destroy as a part of quest This Galaxy Ain't Big Enough.... The Death Ray itself is visible beneath the glass floor. The room has two teleporters leading to the Living Quarters and the Death Ray Hub area.

The Death Ray can be fired from this room by using the buttons on the two consoles. The Death Ray can be re-aimed at an unspecified target on Earth and fired multiple times, producing a spectacular mushroom cloud (approximately the size of Texas). Firing the Death Ray at Earth has no effect on Karma.


  • This is one of many areas of the ship that will not be accessible after the player has completed the main (This Galaxy Ain't Big Enough...) quest.
  • After destroying the 2nd generator in this room approx. 5 aliens wielding Atomizers and Disintegrators will teleport in using the open teleport pad, it is suggested that if the player had taken any of the plasma/frag mines from the weapons lab to use them to repel the assault.
  • If you fire the death ray while the reactor cores are up and in the process of overheating they will instead descend back into the floor. (Xbox 360, PC, PS3) Also, when you raise the generator again, it will start overheating straight away. (Confirmed on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3)
  • When fired the death ray initially strikes the Northeastern Great Lakes region, though as the resulting dust cloud expands it enventually covers the general region of South Eastern Ontario, Western New York, and most of Michigan. The major cities of Buffalo and Toronto as well the natural landmark of Niagara Falls would be the closest to the devistation, asuming they still exist.


Death Ray Control only appears in the Fallout 3 add-on Mothership Zeta.
