Why, we were in the movie business in New Reno. We made hundreds of films, many of them classics, like "Top Bun," "Frisky Bizness," and "Days of Rubber". That's what makes us celebrities.

Vikki Goldman is a notorious New Reno film star that endorses the Hubologists in 2241.

Background

Described as blonde and extremely attractive, Vikki Goldman and her dark-haired partner Juan Cruz make for a very eerily wholesome pair.[1] The two are well known for their long film careers, including such timeless classics like Top Bun, Frisky Bizness and Days of Rubber.[2]

The pair is thoroughly invested into the workings of the cult and help write their doctrines. In particular, they focus on Dick Hubbell's scrapbooks, notes and aborted manuscripts, as well as grocery lists.[3]

Their personal belief is that free will is important, if one's free will involves choosing Hubology and submitting to the Great Wheel.[4] When in doubt, Cruz and Goldman are there to guide potential initiates to the path of an AHS-1.[5] They thoroughly enjoy their work, with Vikki concurring with Juan upon his remarks that it makes them sexually stimulated.[6] Despite their religious practices, they're easily offended by anyone doubting the veracity of their teachings.[7]

Her attractiveness has caused Dave Handy to become quite infatuated with her. Vikki remarks that he is a "cutie," but otherwise can't do anything while Juan is present.[8]

Appearances

Vikki Goldman appears only in Fallout 2.

Behind the scenes

Just like how Juan Cruz is a reference to Tom Cruise, Vikki's name is a reference to Nicole Kidman. They were a couple at the time of the game's release and were both outspoken about Scientology. The characters lampshade this in a tongue-in-cheek way in multiple lines. The movies Vikki mentions refer to Top Gun, Risky Business, and Days of Thunder, correspondingly, in which Tom Cruise starred.
