With inside information courtesy of Deep Throat, Mulder heads off to Wisconsin where the Defense Department is in the process of reclaiming a downed UFO. He sets off on his own and finds the crash site only to be knocked out by a soldier. In the brig, he meets Max Fenig, a UFO enthusiast who was also arrested for being too close to the clean up site. Mulder, who has been working on his own, is rescued by Scully but he is clearly in big trouble and faces a professional conduct hearing. When Fenig is found dead, it is clear that there are forces within the government who will go to any length to keep the existence of alien life forms a secret. Written by
