I used to serve with the Enclave. Then I realized it wasn't the USA I was fighting for; it was for the rich old bastards who didn't want to give up their power. I deserted and now I live here with more honest people.

A. Ron Meyers is the self-styled captain of the PMV Valdez, anchored in the San Francisco harbor around 2241.

Background

Captain Meyers is a punk who wears tattered clothes a captain's hat.[1] Prior to his captaincy, Meyers was an Enclave technician at Camp Navarro; however, he deserted to San Francisco once he realized the organization he was serving was not a continuation of the United States of America but instead remnants of pre-War wealth-holders.[2][3][4] Meyers values the honesty of the tanker vagrants, seeing them as good people, in contrast to the treachery found in the Enclave.[5][6]

Behind the scenes

Bugs

As an alternative to having completed the quests, his scripting checks for good reaction to be willing to talk to the Chosen One. But reaction level is not (re)calculated at dialogue init, so this check never passes.

  2. Chosen One: "I see. What else is going on out there on the rig?"
    A. Ron Meyers: "Beats me. I was a Navarro tech, not a rig operator. We talked to them over the comm lines, and that was about the extent of it."

  4. Chosen One: "How did you hook up with them?"
    A. Ron Meyers: "Easy enough. I just left the Navarro base one day and headed down here. I figured it was the last place anyone would look. Besides, I'm not important enough for the Enclave to look for me - I'm just a loose end."
    (A. Ron Meyers's dialogue)
  5. Chosen One: "More honest people? These guys?"
    A. Ron Meyers: "Yes. With these people, you know exactly where you stand. They don't play games. The Enclave was like a pack of hyenas - they'd turn on you in a second."
    (A. Ron Meyers's dialogue)
  6. A. Ron Meyers: "What the hell do you want? I don't speak to anyone unless they're friends or good people. Do something for one of my buddies and then come talk to me."

Non-canon

  1. Fallout Bible p.163: "AVALANCHE!"
    "3. The Captain (the head of the punks) tells the player that he was a tech in Navarro. How did he run away from there? And where was the fob located before he was reclaimed by the Enclave?"
    "3. The Navarro Base has had plenty of deserters (including Dr. Henry in NCR); once exposed to the mainland (even in all its trashiness and monster-ridden wastes), some people prefer a life there to the steel bunker walls of Navarro and the lifelessness, sterility, and closed-in oil and stale smells of the Enclave (reminding you of The Amtrak Wars yet?). And that electric maze at the bottom, which was used extensively for hazing purposes."
