The Star Father will love you if you let him.— A Hubologist

Hubology is a religion headquartered in the former city of San Francisco, and can also be found at Nuka-World. It was founded before the Great War by Dick Hubbell and follows his teachings.[1] Followers are known as Hubologists.

Background

The religion began when Hubbell invented a process for expanding the human mind.[2][3][4] It holds that existence is based on the Great Wheel, with the Hub at the center, Hubologists as the spokes and non-believers as the rim.[5][6] Eventually, all Hubologists will be called to the heavens to live with the "Star Father" on the planet Quetzel; they plan to get there through the use of the ESS Quetzel.

Hubology belief holds that by purifying the 'neurodynes' in one's body, a person can ascend to greater levels of spiritual power and eventually transcend the material world.[7] In order to get help purifying these neurodynes, Hubologists will use scientific spirituality methods in exchange for a fee.[8][9] Through a cleansing process offered at Hubology centers called 'alignment', zeta scans remove these negative influences from members, allowing them to gain greater powers as an 'Aligned Hub Seeker' (or AHS).[10]

New recruits must donate all their worldly possessions to the Church as a sign of good faith.[11][12] The cult has a hierarchy based off the degree to which a member has devoted their time and efforts to Hubology, and the longer or more active a role, the higher the numerical rank granted.[13] Donating large sums of money to the Church of Hubology can also help one raise their AHS levels.[14] In addition to their main base in San Francisco, they also have an outpost in New California Republic.

San Francisco

Shi townspeople often remark that the Hubologists give them the creeps[15] and the Shi Emperor's head advisor Ken Lee accuses them of abducting and brainwashing the Shi,[16] leading to more tensions between them. The Hubologists hold the same disdain for the Shi, saying that the Shi are oppressives and by contesting the Hubologist's power, they wreak havoc among our brethren with their neurodyne-influencing ways.[17]

According to Hubologists, "'real' science is all a pack of lies," and people should not listen to what "scientists" say; only the Hub and AHS-9 have the answer.[18] Despite these sentiments, Dr. Crockett installed a nuclear reactor on board the ESS Quetzel as well as developed techniques to harden Power Armor.[19]

Nuka World

Instructed by the Star Father, a small group of Hubologists were lead by Dara Hubbell to Nuka-World, with the goal of controlling a UFO to escape Earth and live on the planet Quetzel.[20] The plan afterward was to return to earth to rule over mankind.[21]

Appearances

Hubology is mentioned in Fallout 2 and the Fallout 4 add-on Nuka-World.

    Dara Hubbell: "Before the great war, a brilliant writer named Dick Hubbell invented a process for expanding the human mind. Through the process of alignment he was able to give his followers great mental powers. I am his direct descendant and keeper of all his secrets, collectively know as Hubology. If you really are interested in joining us, go speak to Phil about having an alignment. We can help you find inner peace and happiness. We can help you master the amazing powers of the mind."

    Chosen One: "{128}{}{His latest book? Isn't he dead?}"
    Juan Cruz and Vikki Goldman: "{143}{}{Him: Dead? Ha ha! Perhaps. We like to think that he aligned all his neurodynes and went to join the Star Father. Her: We have extensive use of his jotted notes and barely-begun manuscripts to spread the word of the Hub. Him: For example, we found a scrap that said: "2 doz. eggs/Milk/TP". Obviously this is significant. It needs to be heard.}"
    Chosen One: "{144}{}{Err... right. I have more questions.}"

  4. Chosen One: "{145}{}{What, because some crackpot wrote something down you feel the need to publish EVERYTHING?}"
    Juan Cruz and Vikki Goldman: "{156}{}{Her: You dare call the Hub (praise his vision) a crackpot? Here? In a stronghold devoted to his study? Him: Get out of here. If you talk to anyone on the way out, you will be attacked. Infidel. Both: Good riddance.}"

    "{165}{}{The Church of Hubology exists to free mankind from the chains that have kept his full spiritual potential in shackles.}"
    "{179}{}{So you're saying there's some higher power who creates us with a purpose and then just abandons us? I can't believe any being would be so callous. Come, embrace the Church of Hubology. Let us show you the true way.}"
    "{182}{}{Without control of your own life, though, what's the point? Nothing you do has any value. Did you choose to get up this morning? No, you're just a puppet by your own philosophy. Now, we at the church of Hubology have a true answer.}"
    "{185}{}{Oh, what a sad and empty philosophy that is! Even if it were true, the only course for you is to seek to develop yourself. It is the only thing you have any control over. The Church of Hubology can help.}"
    "{209}{}{There is nothing you can say to gain favor in the Church of Hubology, blasphemer.}"

    "{155}{}{Neurodynes are the psychic centers of the body. They become polluted by the spiritual remnants of the people who died in the War. Their psi-energies imprint into our neurodynes at birth and hold us in an oppressive state. Alignment erases these imprints.}"
    "{156}{}{As long as your brain chemistry is affected by negative psychic energy, your true spiritual potential is oppressed. Worse still, oppressives can transmit this energy unless they are very, very strong-willed.}"
  9. Chosen One: "{152}{}{Neurodynes? What are they?}"
    Juan Cruz and Vikki Goldman: "{160}{}{Her: Neurodynes are the essence of souls destroyed in the Great War, polluting your spiritual essence and guiding you astray. Him: If you want to know more about our teachings, you'll have to join our church.}"

  10. Enlightened One's dialogue: "{159}{}{Enlightened?}" (The Chosen One)

    "{116}{}{[After wading through the religious gobbledygook, it appears that the Hubologists have created a means of hardening power armor. They have also found a way to compute launch trajectory, orbits, and spatial destinations. Further, it appears they're working on weather control.]}"
    "{113}{}{Future goals.}"
    "{119}{}{[You spend about half an hour reading about the goals AHS-9 is trying to achieve. In addition to enlightenment and reunion with the Star Father, it appears that he's also got no qualms about destroying humans who weren't with him from the beginning. He's a little crazy.]}"
    "{114}{}{Finances.}"
    "{122}{}{[The Hubologist Church appears to be hugely wealthy. The standard approach is to ask a new recruit to donate all his or her worldly possessions to the Church as a sign of good faith. When someone isn't asked to do this, apparently it means the Hubologists aren't intending to deal fairly. They have a huge cache of loot stashed somewhere in the desert. You can't quite figure out the coordinates.]}"
  12. Sole Survivor: "Why do you want to capture the spaceship?"
    Dara Hubbell: "It is central to Hubology. We are destined to make it fly. More than that I cannot tell you. It is secret knowledge reserved for AHS-7 members."

    "{211}{}{There. We erased a few nasty imprints! You are now an AHS-1. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to tend my church.}"
    "{212}{}{Greetings, fellow seeker. There is nothing more I can do for you. You must continue your journey as an AHS-1 on your own.}"

  16. Ken Lee's dialogue: "{170}{}{You must complete a second test: the Hubologists are our enemies. Their leader, AHS-9, has been abducting and brainwashing our children. Kill him for the good of the Shi and I shall tell you how to speak to the Emperor.}"
  17. AHS-7's dialogue: "{165}{}{The oppressive Shi have been contesting our power and wreaking havoc among our brethren with their neurodyne-influencing ways. We believe that if their Emperor is killed, they will see the error of their ways. Will you kill the Emperor?}"

  20. Sole Survivor: "Why do you want to capture the spaceship?"

It is a glorious task the Star Father has given us. Yes. We will end the scourge of neurodynes once and for all. The human race will reach it's full potential under our benevolent guidance."
