[edit] Recording 1


What? Talk into this thing? Just... talk? I don't have to do anything else?

(Alien Noises)

Ow! All right! <Shocking Noise> Ow! I said all right! Just stop!

Hello. Um... hello. My name is Andrew Endicott.

On the night of May 17th, the year our Lord 1697, I was... I was taken. From my home in Salem Village.

I... I do not know where I am, exactly, or why I came to be here.

I have seen, through... windows... the stars, and sun, and beloved Earth. Down there, below me.

So it would seem I am aboard some vessel, suspended in the ether. Ironically, it would seem, so close to where I thought Heaven must surely lie.

But this is not Heaven. And my captors are not angels. I am not entirely unconvinced that the scripture is wrong. That Heaven and Hell are reversed.

For my captives are devils. Demons from my nightmares. Even now they watch me, make me talk.

They seem to want me to tell my story. I know not why. A record of their deeds, perhaps? Or am I just a pawn in some... some evil game.

And there are others. Other... captives, I mean. From whence they came I cannot say.

Some wear strange dress, as if they are from... a different time. And some are... frozen! As in ice! Unmoving! But, I think... alive.

I believe they plan the same fate for me. Will I be frozen, too? Will I... (Alien Noises and Hitting Noise) Ow! Stop it!

I did what you said! You wanted me to talk, so I talked! Just leave me! Leave me be!

[edit] Recording 2

(Alien Noises)

What? What the fuck is this thing? Ya got some kind of Martian sex machine, you sick fuck? Uh uh. No way.

(Alien Noises and Hitting Noises)

Ahh! God DAMNIT! Fuckin' crazy-ass Moon Man! Go ahead! Do your worst!

(Alien Noises)

Gaaaaahh!! Jesus H! Do you not get it, space cadet? I. Do. Not. Fucking. Understand. What. You. Want. Me. To. Do!

This thing? This? What? Talk? I AM talking! What do you want me to say?!

(Alien Noises)

Blah blah blah, yakkety yakkety! That all you assholes can say?! Space men with all this science, and you can't even speak fuckin' English?

Okay, how's about this. My name is Vin. I am on a fucking UFO. I'm from Flatbush, and I want to get home. Can I get a taxi, please?

How's that? Huh? That work for ya, starstruck?

What? Don't you raise that fuckin' thing to me again... Oh, you gonna hit me again? Is that...

(Alien Noises and Hitting Noises)

Agggghhhhh!! Sonofa... Why don't you go back to Uranus, huh? Ha ha ha <Shocking Noise> Agggh!

[edit] Recording 3

(Alien Noises)

Yes, yes, I understand! I've seen the others. I'll do what you want.

This is Doctor Morrison Rand, Professor of Anthropological Archaeology at Banfield College, Humboldt, Oregon.

Shortly after 10:00 p.m., on August 16, 2041, as I was leaving the college campus, headed to my car, I saw a blinding light.

It just... appeared. In the sky, directly over me. I was blinded. I also found my body completely immobilized. I couldn't move, not at all.

What happened next is... hazy. I don't remember much. But what became clear later - what is certainly clear now - is that I was abducted.

I am now the captive of an alien race, one of many people held here, against our will. And, like those others, I am recording who I am.

Why? Because the aliens want us to, for some reason. They have us do it right before they put us into some kind of... suspended animation.

These recordings... It's almost as if we're creating our own library catalog entries, before we get put into a giant collection.

The entire experience would be fascinating if I weren't so completely terrified.

(Alien Noises)

What? Stop? You want me to stop now. All right! All right, see? I'm stopping...

[edit] Recording 4

(Alien Noises)

Oh! I see! Like a tape recorder, right? You just want me to talk? I can do that, certainly.

Hello there! I'm Madeline Wallace. Of the Cincinatti Wallaces?

Well, I... I'm here, on this rocket ship. I'm with the strange men, the space men. The ones who brought me here.

My entire family is on board, actually. My husband, Roy, daughter Margaret, and my son Arthur, as well.

Oh, you should see Arthur! He's so excited. He says this is much better than the things they show on Captain Cosmos.

And I have to say - I agree! Everything is just so... fantastical! I can only hope our hosts have been talking with Uncle Sam. Because with these doohickeys, we'd have the Reds beat in no time! He he he he.

(Alien Noises)

Hmmm? I'm terribly sorry, sir. I'm doing my best. I really don't know what you want me to say.

Whomever will listen to this recording, I would just like to state that if you find yourself in the same boat as the Wallaces, don't be afraid.

I'm not entirely sure what our hosts want, but the situation has been entirely acceptable. We have been treated fairly.

Anyway, the space man is waving his little electrical stick thingy, so I think I'm done. Goodbye!

[edit] Recording 5 - Paulson's Recording

(Alien Noises)

Where's my wife? Where's my boy? What have you done with them?

When I get free, so help me God I'm going to kill every last one of you!

(Alien Noises and Hitting Noises)

Arrgh! What are you doing? What the hell do you want with us? LET ME GO!

[edit] Recording 6 - Elliot Tercorien's Recording

Oh shit, oh shit, oh shit, oh shit...

(Alien Noises)

Gah! Just let me go, okay?! This is crazy, this is like batshit unbelievable crazy. I didn't do anything, I don't know what you want with me.

Is this because of Anchorage? I swear I didn't even want to be there, man. You gotta believe me.

I didn't even WANT to be out in the field! I was looking for a job in Washington, you know?

(Alien Noises)

What? What do you want? I don't understand! Why is this happening to me?

[edit] Recording 7 - Toshiro Kago's Recording


Nanda kono arisama ha? Youkaihenge ka?

Hanase, imasagu!

Kikoenuka, hanase, ima...<Shocking Noise>

[edit] Recording 8 - Colonel Hartigan's Recording

This is... this is incredible! I'm... I'm Colonel Hartigan, of the United States Air Force.

(Alien Noises)

I'm sorry, what? I don't understa... Oh, speak into this? Yes, I was saying, I'm Colonel Hartigan, United States Air Force.

Our nation has been conducting manned spaceflight tests... I'm sorry, you'll have to forgive me. Frankly we never expect to meet you all!

I'm sure there's a great deal that our two species can learn from <Shocking Noise>

Oww! What the Hell? What is this, what are you doing?

(Alien Noises and Hitting Noise)

[edit] Recording 9

(Alien Noises)

Oh god, what are you doing to me? What's that thing? Get it out of me!

Ahhh.... that hurts... oh, please... stop... no.... <Grunting>


(Alien Noises)

[edit] Recording 10

I can't feel my legs... what did you do to my legs...

...Frank? I can't see you...


Frank? Frank! What did they do to you?!



[edit] Recording 11 - Private Mears' Recording

Private Lawrence Mears, U.S. Army Medic, Serial Number 3476511.

(Alien Noises)

Private Lawrence Mears, U.S. Army Medic, Serial Number 3476511.

(Alien Noises and Hitting Noises)

AGH! Fuck! You... can do what...ever you want to me... I'm not saying jack sh...Stick it where the... sun don't shine...

(Alien Noises and Hitting Noises)

AGGGH! Oh my g... P-priv.. ate Law-lawrence U.S. M-m-m...edic...

(Alien Noises and Hitting Noises)

[edit] Recording 12 - Sally's First Recording

Where am I? Where's my sister?

(Alien Noises)

I can hear some weird noises, but I can't see you. Why is it so dark in here? What's this machine? Please... someone talk to me!

(Alien Noises)

I want to go home! Please! Where's my mommy and daddy?! I just want to go home!

(Alien Noises)

<Light turning on>

OW! That's bright! Ugh... wait... what... OH MY GOD! NOOOOOOO! Stay away from me! GET AWAY!

[edit] Recording 13

(Alien Noises)

Hey now. No reason to get yourselves worked up. Whatever you need, I'm going to tell it to you.

(Alien Noises)

Well, I'm pretty sure you want me to talk into this thing, so here goes.

My name is Giles Wolstencroft... I'm the current Assistant Chief Executive Officer of the Vault-Tec Corporation.

I was inspecting the construction site of Vault 76 when I was captured by what I can only assume are alien beings from another world.

I'm not sure what they want from me, or what they will do to me, but whatever they need, I will readily provide.

Perhaps if I can bridge our communication gap and establish a rapport with them, we can enter into an exclusive trade agreement.

In fact, instead of talking to this damn machine, I'm going to attempt to address them directly.

On behalf of the Vault-Tec Corporation, I'd like to extend a heartfelt welcome to you. Wait... you don't need that... wait! WAIT! <Shocking Noise>

[edit] Recording 14

<Female voice:> What are we gonna do? They just threw me in this cell with you after they poked and prodded me and now I just hope they won't kill us.

<Male voice:> Just take it easy. If they wanted us dead, we'd be dead. They must need something from us.

<Female voice:? Yeah! They need us for FOOD or something! You saw that guy! He was all... cut open... like he'd been butchered! Oh my god! We're gonna be next!

<Male voice:> Hey! I said, calm down! If they hear you they may come for us. Try and take it easy!

<Female voice:> NO! GET US THE HELL OUT OF HERE! <pounding noise> SOMEONE! GET US OUT! PLEASE! <pounding noise>

<Male voice:> I said to SHUT UP! <Slapping Noise>... I'm... I'm sorry I did that. Please, forgive me. But we need to keep our heads on straight if we're going to survive.

<Female voice:> (crying) Please, please. I just want to go home... I just want to go home...

[edit] Recording 15

Well this is just ridiculous! I demand to see whomever's in charge!

(Alien Noises and Hitting Noises)

AGGHH! What the? Do you have any idea who your dealing with?

(Alien Noises and Hitting Noises)

AGGHH! Stop it! I am a U.S. Senator and I warn you. If any harm comes to me, you'll bring the full wrath of the U.S. Military upon yourselves.

(Alien Noises)

What? Where are you taking me? Get your god damn hands off me! You'll all pay for this. The U.S. doesn't bargain with aliens...

[edit] Recording 16

I'm Holly Barrisford, a linguistics specialist for the U.S.S.A. I think I'm beginning to understand you, but you need to stop shocking me!

(Alien Noises)

Damn. I wish you could understand me. <Alien Noises>. Do you understand?

(Alien Noises)

That's it. You get it. I mean you no harm, I just want to learn how to speak with you. Then perhaps we can discuss what you need from us.

(Alien Noises)

What are you doing with that needle? No! Get it away from me! NO! PLEASE! We can be friends! You don't need to... ahhhhh.

[edit] Recording 17

Our defenses consist of 3 battalions of light infantry, 34

pieces of field artillery, 108 armored vehicles and 42 aerial vehicles.

(Alien Nosies)

We have 38 ICBM's always on alert and ready to fire when the word is passed down from the White House.

(Alien Noises)

The codes to activate the launch sequences are... are... uhhngh.... no... I can't let you... uggh... get out of my mind!

(Alien Noises)

Agggh! The c-codes... are... ugh.... no... I can't betray... AGH!

My head! I can't... won't... AGGGGH! agggh...

[edit] Recording 18

Just wait until I tell Marsha and Karen about this! Imagine... I'm actually on a SPACEship!

(Alien Noises)

Oh, they're pointing at... oh, talk in to this? What is this? Is this the space phone? Hey Marsh, this is Janet, you will NEVER guess where I am. Never. Ohhhhh... I wish I could hear you but I'll just tell you. I'M IN SPACE! I was driving along the highway when there was this light... and suddenly, I'm on this real spaceship! No joke! Now all these little green men are making all these noises and pointing at stuff trying to talk to me! I bet I'm the first one they've met! So I figure I'll talk with them a while, then I'll join you later and I can tell you all about it over lunch! Oh, if I only had my camera. Well, they're pointing at some table with all sorts of gizmos sticking out of it. Gotta go! Kisses!

<Kissing Noises>

[edit] Recording 19

This is my final message. If this doesn't work, I hope someone gets this recording and can bring it back to Earth.

I've been able to figure out how to use some of the alien devices, like this recorder, and I think I know what they want with our world.

They mean to take as many of us as they can and change us into... some sort of abomination. Many have been killed because of their experiments.

They've been keeping us in cells, and then moving us one by one to their experimentation labs. I've managed to escape, but they are looking for me.

You've got to send help up here. As far as I can tell, they're never going to stop until they've captured hundreds... maybe thousands of us.

The good news is that they're totally reliant on technology. Without it, they're no tougher than you or I.

A small, well-equipped force could take this ship and free all of the prisoners on board. That's your best chance.

I've got to keep moving, so I need to hide this tape. Good luck to all of us, and godspeed.

[edit] Recording 20

(Alien Noises and Hitting Noises)

Oh man... what did you... why can't I feel my arms... ...wait... are those... are those MY ARMS? WHAT DID YOU DO? OH GOD, PUT THEM BACK! PUT THEM BACK ON!

(Alien Noises and Hitting Noises)

[edit] Recording 21 - Sally's Second Recording

Hello, Mr. Alien. Yeah, I know... I'll talk into the thing.

I don't know why you brought me back here. We've done this a whole bunch of.... Hey! Giddyup Buttercup! Wow!

I always wanted one of those!... Why do you have one?

I don't understand... What do you want? It's a toy. A TOY. Why are you so excited? You're weird.

[edit] Recording 22 - Somah's Recording

(Alien Noises)

Oh, no way, no way. This is a bad dream right? I'm dreaming. Shit. So what, I'm being held hostage now or something? I'm some kind of prisoner? Listen. If this is because of what they did, I just work for those guys, ok? It's not like I enjoyed it. I was just in it for the caps, alright? Can I go now?

(Alien Noises)

[edit] Recording 23

(Alien Noises)


Please... just please, let me go...

<Mechanical Noises>

[edit] Recording 24

(Alien Noises)

<Brahmin Mooing>

(Alien Noises)

<Brahmin Mooing>

(Alien Noises)

[edit] Recording 25

Oh man I've seen this on TV......

(Alien Noises)

You're going to eat me, aren't you? I'm like sort of delicacy on your planet right? RIGHT? Well I hope you choke! I hope you stuff your stupid little green faces and choke to death! Unless this is like the other show where I get put in to some sort of weird alien zoo... that might be ok.....
