Sometime before the Great War, a prototype plasma pistol was stolen from the federal government by an organization called Quaere Verum, who believed in a government cover-up called "The Conspiracy". Quaere Verum attempted to expose this cover-up by using the prototype pistol, which they believed was clearly inspired by alien technology. However, the group was swiftly eradicated by the government, and the pistol buried in the desert to keep it hidden. The pistol was later taken by aliens who brought up both the safe that contained the gun and the computer terminal required to remotely unlock the safe.
