Life Finds a Way... to wreck everything.
This was one of the largest multi-thread events in terms of participation since the Infected Invasion.

An unmarked space vessel - filled with T-rex-like reptilian specimens - crash landed into depths of the Mojave Wasteland, leading to the specimens escaping and running amok throughout the desert. The locals were used to mutant threats of all kinds from without and within, but these dinosaurs were still too much for them; the beasts had voracious, omoniverous appetites, sported long, chameleon-like tongues designed to grab prey from afar, and some had already begun to adapt to the environment, learning to fly through the air or burrow through the desert sand.
As soon as it became clear that the NCR and other forces in the wasteland were not equipped to handle the threat, a distress call was issued and relayed by the Shy Guys to the wider multiverse. Not long afterward, droves of adventurers arrived on the Flotilla and were immediately divided into five groups:
It was eventually discovered that the horde of of dinosaurs were actually heavily-mutated Yoshis from the Mushroom World that had been cloned hundreds of times and genetically altered. Referred to as "Deliverer Clones" by a computer system within the wrecked ship, they were part of a shipment to help along the clone perfection process. With the information gathered from the ship and various other places, the Uber Ethereal eventually deduced that the ship originated from Traverse Town in the Crossroad Cluster, which had to be the location of the cloning organization's secret base.
- The Wasteland was once again thrust onto the multiverse stage, and many of the multiverse's denizens got to see up-close the state of the world and the hardships its people had been forced to endure. Likewise, the people of the Wasteland were once again exposed to the dangers - and salvation - that could be found in the multiverse.
- A major shipment to improve the Clone Arc organization's cloning process was derailed, and much of the research contained within was lost.
- The location of the organization's secret base was unearthed, leading to the arc's End Game phase.
