A ship of unknown origin crashed somewhere in the middle of the Wasteland (near Old Phoenix). Strange things have been spotted around the wreckage. Runners who travel the area reported that their vehicles would stop working whenever they got close to it. Strange buzzing sounds were 'felt' as they approached.
Obviously there was a lot of investigation projects launched by the Consortium and their findings were internally published in a document called the Phoenix Report. Such a document has found its way into other parties (most notably other research corporations) and the race is on to discover, possess and deconstruct any Alien Tech available in the wreckage.
Could be an alien ship that crashed in the interior of the Wastes. Could be some new repulser technology that had an accident. No one's really sure what happened or where it came from but what they do not is that everything is dead for exactly one mile in radius from the crash.
