Left in orbit after the nuclear holocaust, orbital decay and lack of thrust maintenance led the space station to fall back to Earth and crash in the former state of West Virginia.
Valiant-1 is a circular space station designed like an orbiting wheel. At the center was the command core (which was later converted into a raider encampment), where the main base of controlling the station was present. The module is then connected via connection tubes towards the rotating ring. These rings, such as Airlock C7, contained cargo and pressurized doors to allow spacecraft to dock on Valiant-1.
The Valiant-1 space station appears only in Fallout 76.
Behind the scenesEdit
|The following is based on unverified behind the scenes information and has not been confirmed by canon sources.|
- The design of Valiant-1 mirrors many contemporary and Cold War references towards the idea of artificial gravity. The usage of centrifugal force to create pseudo gravity could only be possible via an even rotating frame to prevent gravitational disturbances and ripping the spacecraft apart.
- It could also be a reference to Space Station 5 in 2001: A Space Odyssey.
- The appearance and design of Valiant-1 also resembles the planned design of Ballistic Orbital Missile Base 001 and Ballistic Orbital Missile Base 002 which would have been locations in the cancelled Van Buren game. B.O.M.B.-002 would even have been crashed into the Earth similarly to Valiant-1, and would be located in the Grand Canyon; while B.O.M.B.-001 would have still been in orbit and have been the location of the game's climax.
