Hear me out. In the mid 21st century leading minds in the United States realize that the Earth's resources are running out and that modern civilization is doomed to collapse. The solution to this problem is space travel and interplanetary colonization, however the technology and sociological data necessary to achieve such a colossal endeavor is not yet available.
Vault Tec and its twin organization, the Enclave, are created. Vault Tec begins constructing various vaults. They are advertised as fallout shelters but in reality they are modeled after a prototype interplanetary colony (see Nuka-World), and are meant to host various technological and sociological experiments. In existing games these experiments seem nonsensical – clones, super soldiers, super mutants, exposure to radiation, "excessive" vegetation to name a few – even ignoring how wacky these experiments seem, what is even the point if no one is around to collect the data?
But what if the experiments only seem wacky because they're taken out of context? Look at them from the perspective of interplanetary colonization. Clones could be useful in growing a colony's labor force. Super soldiers and super mutants would be better equipped to handle hostile environments. Space is full of radiation, so naturally it would be desirable to study the effects of exposure. Developing rapid growth, high yield plant strains would allow colonies to establish themselves more quickly.
We know that the Enclave – created as a continuity of government measure – was monitoring the vault experiments from the Poseidon Oil Rig, which was destroyed. But what if they weren't the only ones?
What if Vault Tec wasn't with the Enclave on the Poseidon Oil Rig? What if Vault Tec established its own base, and has been quietly watching the vault experiments and the wasteland this whole time, collecting data?
What if Vault Tec, through the Enclave, through pushing China too far, deliberately caused the Great War to happen? The vault experiments would never have worked without a nuclear armegeddon. No one would have gone inside, and even if they did the public would have put Vault Tec's heads on pikes when they learned the truth about the experiments.
Also consider this: what has humanity been doing ever since the Great War? Hunanity has been recolonizing the Earth, now a foreign and hostile world, not entirely unlike… another planet. What if this was Vault Tec's intention? To thrust humanity unawares into a grand experiment as preparation to go forth and colonize other worlds, watching them the whole time?
Which civilization, which way of life, what societies and technologies are best suited for spreading humanity throughout the stars? This is the question that Vault Tec seeks to answer. And once they have their answer, they will step into the light.
The question then becomes: will humanity forgive them? Or will humanity go to war, one last time?
