Research Lab

inside: Mothership Zeta
connects to: Cargo Hold

The Research Lab is a location on board Mothership Zeta.



The vaguely-named Research Lab is an area of Mothership Zeta accessible via the Cargo Hold. It is unnecessary to visit the Research Lab to gain access to the Bridge and further the main questline. However, the area becomes inaccessible after leaving the Engineering Core and all chance of retrieving Captive Recordings towards the Alien Archivist goal will be permanently lost if not explored before the Space Walk.

At first glance, the Research Lab appears to be where the aliens analyze Earth's vehicular technology. Displays of cars, motorcycles, and a named command module from a USSA spacecraft (possibly associated with Colonel Hartigan) appear to confirm this speculation.

Deeper in the labs however, one discovers a warehouse-scale collection of Giddyup Buttercups and related memorabilia in various states of storage. It appears that the aliens are unhealthily fascinated with the pre-war toy and may be trying to turn them into weapons; one room houses a lone Giddyup Buttercup surrounded by dead bodies with observation rooms on either side, and a workbench can be found with a disassembled Buttercup and some grenades.

Notable loot

In the first section (vehicular study) you will find:

  • Alien Archivist Log 13 (across from the warehouse door)

In the second section (Buttercup warehouse):

In the larger Buttercup warehouse, South West corner:

  • Buttercup Toy (across from a work table, second level -- requires jumping to get)


  • 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.
  • If you tour this area with Elliot Tercorien, he makes observations about Giddyup Buttercup, posters, etc. (He also makes an observation about the Nuka Cola machine in the cargo hold).
  • Paulson mentions that 'he would lose all respect if he was to ride into town on one of them.' Inside the slaughter room he will mention that his horse will never do something like that.
  • If you look at the Buttercup in the slaughter room, head-on, its eyes will flash red at you three times.

Behind the scenes

The USSA spacecraft found in this area resembles the Mercury capsules built by NASA for the first American spaceflights and it even follows the same naming conventions as the real-world spaceships. It can be presumed that the ship and Colonel Hartigan were abducted during one of the flights and the incident covered up by the government.


Research Lab only appears in the Fallout 3 add-on Mothership Zeta.
