Because you are no longer in the Capital Wasteland for this add-on, you're treated to a completely new environment, meaning new assets all around. The entire storyline does take place in a spaceship, so you can expect a lot of sci-fi elements to ogle at. However, the environments are at the same time very, very repetitive and the fascination with new surroundings soon wears off. Still, the scenery is a welcome departure from the post-apocalyptic, run-down look that you're used to. Another negative is that the alien race has but a few different models too look at. I wish there had been a bit more variety, but the characters were generally well-created.
The audio elements of Mothership Zeta play out fairly well. The voicework is once again driving for the story, although there were a few times when I felt that the main little girl's lines were a bit over the top or somewhat corny. The aliens are completely unintelligible (by design), which is an interesting choice to not have a translator to decipher their gibberish. Still, you almost knew exactly what they were telling you due to tone and context, as well as a little help from the other Non-Playable Characters.
