USSA Captain Richard Wade was an astronaut before the Great War.

BackgroundEdit

Along with Captain Mark Garris and Captain Michael Hagen, Wade was part of the crew of the Virgo II Lunar Lander. It was the first lunar landing, making contact with the lunar surface on July 16, 1969. The astronauts became the first humans to walk on a celestial body other than Earth.

The lander later ended up on display in the Museum of Technology in Washington, D.C.

NotesEdit

The landing happened four days before the real-world landing, on the same day that the real-world landing was launched. The mission is the Fallout world's counterpart to the real world's Apollo 11, whose crew consisted of Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins and Edwin 'Buzz' Aldrin.

AppearancesEdit

Richard Wade is mentioned only in Fallout 3.
