The Mission of Warehouse 13
Hey! I know that’s it’s been awhile, but I’ve had a lot that I’ve been doing lately, including beginning the label writing of my displays at the Medford Historical Society. Yet now, without further ado, I give you my version of the mission statement of Warehouse 13 – one a bit more intense and academic than their standard “snag, bag, and tag” motto.
Warehouse 13 is a government-funded institution seeking to collect and secure artifacts of supernatural or super-scientific nature for the future of humanity. The objects preserved in Warehouse 13’s collection are considered to be dangerous in some fashion, whether through downsides of use, or through continual overuse. The Warehouse maintains their collections in seclusion to protect the outside world from their contained power. Similarly, Warehouse 13 seeks to protect the world from the evil use of its collections, periodically utilizing their objects to prevent broad-scale disaster. Through careful monitoring, and state-of-the-art, specialized preservation techniques, Warehouse 13 maintains the world’s only collection of powerfully dangerous artifacts.
