I just dont get it, i played through it and have not seen one, ONE, shred of evidence to suggest aliens started the Great War (aka the ultimate shooting of the worlds foot). Just because Elliot had some crackpot theories does NOT make them true. Bethesda knows aliens did not start the Great War. They arent gonna change canon....in fact, they never changed canon. They just used it poorly. The "knights in shining armor" Brotherhood are but a small amount of our favorite xenophobic tech hoarders, and the Outcasts show us a glimpse at the Western Brotherhood. It was inevitable at least one sect of the Brotherhood was gonna "go native" and start helping the Wasteland. The Super Mutants look different in Fallout 3 because they are using a different type of FEV (Force Evolutionary is a TYPE of virus, not the name of it), heck, with Harold (who is an FEV mutant, not a ghoul) we know even the same type of FEV can have different results sometimes. And as for the Enclave armor being weaker than the T-51b, thats just gameplay/ story segregation, they wanted the rare T-51b to be the most powerful, because its rare, it will encourage people to find it, no one wants to find a weaker unique armor. In story, i bet the Adv. Mark III and Tesla Armor would outshine the T-51b, and the Hellfire would be....godly. All in all, the only thing MZ implies is that aliens exist. That's it, they exist, and they been around for a really long time. Also if you are complaining about MZ because it has aliens.....the title says MOTHER SHIP ZETA! What did you THINK it would be about? Your own fault for buying it.
