Project Reclamation was a secret S.H.I.E.L.D. operation designed to save the selected elite of the mankind in the event of a catastrophic event.
In the 1970s, S.H.I.E.L.D. authorized Project Reclamation, an operation designed to save the selected elite of the mankind in the event of a catastrophic event, spearheaded by General Rick Stoner. He brought some of the era's best technology to the Lighthouse, an underground S.H.I.E.L.D. facility located near Lake Ontario, New York, and left several pre-recorded messages behind for future guests.
The possible cataclysmic events which were imagined while designing the project were a catastrophic meteorological event, a massive nuclear catastrophe and an alien invasion.
Following the avoiding of the 1972 Hydrogen Wave Crisis, Project Reclamation was abandoned.
