Mothership Zeta Crew and House's Grand Plan

/rambling mod thoughts

I haven't played much of MZC, but have seen enough to get thinking about it.  I like it because it doesn't just expect the player to pretty much just forget about the spaceship that they just fought their way through.

But I've often wished we could have seen House's grand plan to go to the stars.  I can't help but wonder if I would have preferred that beginning to MZC (if, of course, MZC had been built from the ground up with TTW in mind.)  

As far as I know, MZC, being a fallout 3 mod with no awareness of NV (I think), it does not offer any explanation (understandably) as to why the ship can't just nuke the New Vegas factions.

I'm picturing something like the "wasteland defense" on Venus and Mars, now.  Not real world Venus and Mars, but olden-timey "world of tomorrow" interpretations.  ;) 
From what I understand, MZC is difficult to convert in the first place, however.

TTW Version Compatibility: 

v2.9

Part of the main quest in

Part of the main quest in Zeta is destroying the weapon capable of targeting ground sites. There's apparently a ship-to-ship weapon that you use to destroy the other mothership in orbit, but you have no way to target the ground at that point. Targeting NV would require repairing the gun you took out earlier. Given that the whole reason you take it out was to prevent ground targets from being destroyed, I don't see the LW approving of repairing it.

yeah I get it, it was never

yeah I get it, it was never meant to involve New Vegas anyway, it's probably for the better. 
My mind is just wandering to what could have happened, if House had been given the ship.  He apparently intended on taking to the stars anyway.

Yeah, it's an interesting

Yeah, it's an interesting idea, and I imagine HE would approve fixing the big gun.
