AM I the only one who sees a Flaw in this plan? I mean, The enclave must not have too many members. I'd assume a little above 4000? Is not that too little a genepool to re-populate the human race? 02:11, February 6, 2010 (UTC)

Vaults (at least, control Vaults) will also be unaffected. If about 30 cavemen and women could produce a 6 billion strong population now, I don't see how 4000+ couldn't. Nitty Tok. 02:14, February 6, 2010 (UTC)
They will be affected. One had to be vaccinated not to be affected, actually. The thing about "pure humans" not being affected was only propaganda. Ausir(talk) 02:41, February 6, 2010 (UTC)
Play Fallout 2 and release the FEV into the airducts. Most of the symptoms in the article are taken directly from the effect the toxin has on Enclave citizens. Personal_Sig_Image.gif Tagaziel (call!) 07:32, February 6, 2010 (UTC)

Well then, I guess from this, we can say The Enclave is Racist/Purist to the point of self-destructive stupidity.Revolverman 07:44, March 17, 2010 (UTC)
Not really. The Enclave was sealed tight and it was deliberate sabotage that unleashed the virus. Prolly it was designed to neutralize after a few months or years. Personal_Sig_Image.gif Tagaziel (call!) 11:21, March 17, 2010 (UTC)
The Vaults were airtight too, guys. Nitty Tok. 12:19, March 17, 2010 (UTC)
How can you seal a oil platform? Did it have Life support capabilities so they wouldn't run out of breathable air? Never mind the fact that they assumed the FEV wouldn't mutate and stick around, or kill other lifeforms. I mean it is called the Forced Evolutionary Virus for a reason.Revolverman 20:45, March 17, 2010 (UTC)
It's a man-made, tailored virus. The Enclave has enough manpower and research ability to design a virus that doesn't mutate. And yes, the oil rig is a self-contained unit with air scrubbers and filters all around. Why do you think all Enclave citizens were described as pale but healthy? Personal_Sig_Image.gif Tagaziel (call!) 10:53, March 18, 2010 (UTC)

Granted, my Biology isn't as sharp as it can, but isn't a non-mutating virus impossible? Granted, with Fallout science, it's all a moot point. I still feel it proves the Enclave suffers from stupid evil. 08:50, March 25, 2010 (UTC)

Why stupid evil? Their plan is very sound, actually. They have the means to release the virus worldwide, engineered it to near perfection and are protected from it (they even have an inoculation programme prepared). Personal_Sig_Image.gif Tagaziel (call!) 10:21, March 25, 2010 (UTC)

Well, one of a million non-FEV things could hit the Enclave oil rig. Earthquakes, Tsnamis, other sicknesses. To pin everything on a single base, in the middle of the sea, for how ever long it takes the FEV to do its thing is, if you ask me, REALLY stupid. The only reason to infect the world with FEV Curiling-13, is to be cartoonishly evil. Just like Fallout 3's choice of infecting Project Purity. There is no reason to do it, beside just being evil for the sake of it. Revolverman 00:17, March 26, 2010 (UTC)

Do you honestly think Poseidon Oil did not take those factors into consideration? If the Oil Rig was chosen as the HQ of the Enclave, then it's propably the safest place in the world. Including from natural disasters (by the way, tsunami in the open sea?). Personal_Sig_Image.gif Tagaziel (call!) 08:43, March 26, 2010 (UTC)
Tsunamis can hit oil rigs in the open sea due to them being big enough to cause enough pressure in the water movement to trigger them. Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't built in its location because it was the final oil patch on earth, and not for its geological safety? If I recall, it was abandoned, THEN taken over by the Enclave as its Headquarters after the fact. Even if it was the safest patch of sea before the Great war, the massive plate shifts and damage caused by the war would have most certainly changed that. : Revolverman 08:55, March 26, 2010 (UTC)
You're not alone in thinking this is pretty a damn stupid plan. Especially the whole killing pureblood humans thing. But the bit I love most about it? Using the Master's FEV to cure the land of mutants. The FEV that does jack/shit to ghouls and supermutants. Essentially, they're ONLY killing the near baseline humans. The major mutations, Deathclaws, Trogs, and the other critter that make the wasteland so nasty, even for the well prepared? They'll be fine. It's a recipe for human extinction. Funny, funny stuff. 04:02, December 21, 2011 (UTC)

There was no assumption, there was however testing. The curling strain would not mutate things, it would simply kill. Also I don't think its said that FEV does nothing to Ghouls, just that it doesn't create viable Supermutants - you need a human with little to no radiation (prime normals) for that, and a lot of the wastelanders don't meet this grade, much less ghouls Agent c 04:07, December 21, 2011 (UTC)
