Reid Underwood's terminal is found in the lower west section of the cargo hold of Mothership Zeta in the Fallout 3 add-on Mothership Zeta. It details Reid Underwood's acquisition of the MPLX Novasurge (plasma pistol prototype), as a goal of exposing "The Conspiracy", and how the pistol ended up in Underwood's safe.

They think we're stupid; that we have no idea what they're up to. But we know. Barbed wire topped fences and security cameras be damned! We'll get the truth to come out if it's the last thing we do! The conspiracy has to end, and we will be the ones who drag it from the shadows and cast it into the spotlight for all to see. They deny everything. They deny the place even exists! But here we are, faced with armed guards who patrol the dunes and robotic sentries calculating our every move. They're careful, but not careful enough. I've found a loophole, a way in, and I mean to exploit it soon.

We've done it! We have it in our hands! The smoking gun... the evidence we need to prove that everything they've told the world is a lie! Now let's try to see them weasel their way out of this one and make petty excuses. The only reason they've been so successful this long is because of the lack of proof on our part. Now that's all over. As soon as the coast is clear, we're bringing this thing to the press. But for now, we need to lay low. No telling how long it'll take before they discover how we did it.

They're closing in! How did they find out? What did we miss? I thought we'd covered our tracks, but there must be something we'd forgotten. The security logs were completely erased, the inventory files were rewritten... that only leaves Doctor Morley! That bastard! He approached us saying he wanted to crack The Conspiracy wide open, and all the while he was playing us like fools! He just wanted to expose us, to bring us out into the open so they could eliminate us! Well, it's not going to work! They'll never find us and they'll never get their hands on the item!

Banks is dead. Combs is dead. I'm the only member of Quaere Verum left. I'm not certain how much longer I'll be safe here. I'm placing the item inside a specially constructed safe with a remote lock trigger. It'll take a damn genius hacker to get into this terminal and the safe can withstand anything they throw at it. Tomorrow I take the terminal and the safe, and I'm going to bury it out in the desert where they'll never find it. Hopefully, one day, someone else will discover the item and realize that they hold the key to unlocking the truth. All they need to do is succeed where we have failed. Good luck to us all.
"The Conspiracy" appears to have been a supposed government coverup that alien technology was being used to create things such as the MPLX Novasurge.
- ↑ Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition: "Once thought to be covered up by a government conspiracy and believed only by "crackpot" groups such as the Quaere Verum, evidence of extraterrestrial life can be traced back throughout human history, but became nationally recognized after the mysterious disappearance of the Clarabella 7 space pod during the 1960s Space Race. It is said that Alien technology was the basis of many of the Enclave’s more exotic and impressive weaponry and robotics, and even toy manufacturers such as Wilson Automatoys weren’t immune to these accusations. Recently, after the discovery of an Alien body in Fort Bannister, the shocking truth was revealed. The Aliens are not only real and alive, but they’re back. And they're pissed."
