Sorry if considered to be a necroposting, but I want just to say "Hi!" to the topic-starter. You are not alone here! We the Enclave supporters are scorned and disapproved among the Fallout community, but we still exist and stay faithful to our chosen faction. And I believe Enclave will return in further games, if not in Fo4 than later, as it's an integral part of the Fallout universe, a kind of a well-known "trademark" which will always attract gamers, and let's remember that without Enclave (pre-war government) the whole story would be impossible. They just can't die so easily, they must have other, even more powerful bases, don't forget about Chicago! Even if Raven Rock is destroyed it doesn't mean the President's death, this is not an easy killable human. In all probability Eden must have reserve copies of oneself. Lets await a great Chicago base and our President safe and sound! Concerning their "racist" ideas I don't think they are just primitive racists. Thereby they don't hate any mutants, they hate "Wasteland mentality" and "Wasteland spirit", they want to get rid of it together with all Wasteland monsters and then turn Wasteland into a normal country. What is a proof? 1) In Fo2 it was possible to serve in the Enclave for non-enclave people. 2) Frank Horrigan from Fo2 was a supermutant, but he was initially in the Enclave and was really trustworthy. 3) Anna Holt from Fo3 is a wastelander, but a gifted scientist, therefore useful. Enclave doesn't hate all Wastelanders only because of mutations, the key is in the cultural aversion. If they want to restore the world, they need 2 things - safe space and normal citizens. Most of the wastelanders cannot be such citizens due to the absence of education and wild, cruel, obscurant mentality. BoS stands apart here, they are quite a freaky organization, but I'd like to unite them with the Enclave. Except BoS and some civilized oasises like Vegas the Wasteland is a real hell full of dreadful violence, slavery, cannibalism and all sort of disgusting things. Enclave is technically advanced but small faction, they cant' control all the Wasteland to provide an order everywhere. What will they do with the bulk of primitive and aggressive tribes? Send them to the school and teach good manners? They have no resources for it. So they choose an evil but the most effective way of clearing the Wasteland of savages and raiders. Releasing the virus they kill 3 birds with one stone: 1) All monsters, including aggressive supermutants and ghouls are eliminated. 2) They get rid of savages, raiders - communities than cannot be civilized quickly. 3) All other enemies like BoS and NCR army are killed. I don't approve all their previous actions and would also change this plan a bit, initiating some kind of a "talent search" program in order to find more scientists and skilled, educated people, and give the fev-cure to the civilized communities. Anyway it would be more logically correct to hire wastelanders instead of risking their own lives.
