Welcome to REPCONN Headquarters, Rocketeer! Come all this way to see our little facility, have you?

The tour guide is a REPCONN Mister Handy programmed to take any "Rocketeers" on a tour of the REPCONN headquarters still active in 2281.

Background

The tour guide was programmed to take people on a tour of the REPCONN headquarters before the Great War. It remains in 2281, still wandering the halls and looking for any "Rocketeers" to educate them about REPCONN Aerospace, its developments, and RobCo Industries.[1][2][3]

Characteristics

Specifications

Physically it is a Mister Handy that has been reprogrammed to be a tour guide. It is very friendly and branded with the REPCONN logo. Compared to other Mister Handies, it is slightly green in appearance, much like the maintenance robots found in the facility. The tour guide also lacks any tools other than graspers, likely to seem less threatening to visitors.

Gameplay attributes

The Tour guide helps anyone who visits the REPCONN headquarters with a guide of the building, as long as asked during the appropriate hours. It will explain about radioactive waste, missiles, spaceships, plasma, and of course, robots. It will also unlock the Planetarium for the Courier.

The tour guide appears to have taken out several Fiends before the building is entered, but it will not attack unless provoked.

Notes

  • Like many other robots, the tour guide is completely unaware of the occurrence of the Great War, and it continues to follow its programming normally.
  • Like all other robots in the facility, destroying the tour guide does not alert security.
  • The tour guide is larger than the other Mister Handy-type robots in the facility.
  • The tour guide isn't disabled when using the Disable Robots protocol on the terminal on the third floor.

Notable quotes

  • "Welcome to REPCONN Headquarters, Rocketeer! Come all this way to see our little facility, have you? I'm here to answer any and all questions you may have - within specified parameters - and if you'd like, I can provide a tour of our museum."
  • "Welcome back! Interested in a tour of the REPCONN museum? Or did you have a question about the company I could answer?"
  • "Ready for the REPCONN tour, Rocketeers? Courtesy of the fine folks at RobCo, I'll be your guide today on the path of... Scientific. Discovery. In the lead-lined case behind me is a spent radioactive rod from of our old reactors. No need to stand too close, let's move along, shall we? Look here - a row of multi-colored plasma fuels! Careful, they may look safe to drink, but your stomach is the last place they should be. Why the difference in cylinder size? Refining our production methods has resulted in higher yields of fuel over time, that's why! To my right you can see a sample of some old "safety barrels" REPCONN once used to store radioactive waste. Perfectly safe. On my left is an example of a mountain of REPCONN safety barrels some legislators claim are poisoning our environment. Ridiculous. Behind me is our most recent rocket project, which we're keeping under our hats... until "launch," if you'll pardon the expression. And in front of me is a model - not actual size - of the launch dome we are using to send our rockets screeeeaming into orbit. Now these colorful fellows behind me are REPCONN's earliest... experiments in flight. Feel free to read the plaques and learn, Rocketeers! Now for the highlight of our tour! Due to a generous donation from RobCo, this next exhibit showcases the wondrous world of - robots! Around you are the incredible Eyebot, the fearsome Sentry Bot, and the always-helpful Mr. Handy. That helpfulness runs through our whole line! This is the final stop on our tour. This model of our solar system is a small example of where the partnership between RobCo and REPCONN hopes to go. See those little rockets zipping about? They are manned by robots, tirelessly looking for resources to mine on planets beyond our own. And that's it for our tour today, Rocketeers - RobCo and its tiny partner REPCONN thank you! Any further questions, please, feel free to ask."
