In the 1980s, S.H.I.E.L.D., NASA and the United States Air Force cooperated in a project with the goal of studying the Tesseract, led by the Kree scientist Mar-Vell working under the disguise of 'Wendy Lawson'. In this facility, she developed a Light-Speed Engine, a device that could help Skrulls escape the Kree, ending the Kree-Skrull War. The facility also stored the documents relating to the project.
Search for Wendy Lawson
Nick Fury accompanied Vers to the Joint USAFA Facility, where they asked to meet Wendy Lawson. Although asked to wait, Fury and Vers decided to investigate on their own, breaking into Project P.E.G.A.S.U.S.'s archives. They discovered Lawson's file and learned about the crash and Mar-Vell's plans for the Light-Speed Engine. Vers found a file with Maria Rambeau's name in it and a photograph of herself. Unbeknownst to Vers, Fury contacted Keller with their location. Keller had however been replaced by Talos, seeking to recapture Danvers.
Talos, still disguised as Keller and accompanied by several S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, met with Fury at the facility and planned to ambush Vers. However, Fury became aware that Keller was an impostor by Talos' use of Fury's first name when they were traveling up in an elevator. Fury decided to trick Talos and got off the elevator a floor before. Talos quickly became aware of Fury's trickery and ordered the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents to shoot him on sight. Fury and Vers managed to escape but were cornered by Phil Coulson. Trusting Fury, he let them go. Vers and Fury escaped to the facility's hangar and boarded a Quadjet. Talos fired upon them as Vers took control of the craft and flew away from the facility.
