Mulder and Scully head off to Alaska when the scientists working on the Arctic Ice Core project have seemingly gone crazy and killed each other. The project team had just beaten the record for the deepest core sample when they soon began to act oddly. Along with two scientists and a helicopter pilot, the agents arrive at the deserted post and soon find that an ancient micro-organism from one of the deep core samples is responsible. The helicopter pilot is the first affected and has to be restrained. One other of the group is also infected and the chief scientist in the group thinks it's Mulder. Written by
