After Mulder buys an alien autopsy video from a mail order house in Allentown, Pa. he thinks he may be onto the real thing. He goes to Allentown with a skeptical Scully to find that the man who distributed the videos has been murdered. They arrest a trespasser in the house only to learn from Assistant Director Skinner that the man is a senior Japanese diplomat. The papers he was carrying however point to the use of rail cars as rolling laboratories as well as the recovery of what was supposed to be a Japanese submarine. Scully meanwhile meets a group of women with whom she may have a particular affinity. Written by

When Mulder is sneaking through the rail yard in what is supposedly West Virginia, all of the locomotives we see are lettered for the BC Rail network, which is a Canadian railroad based in the Pacific Northwest. Also, the only clearly visible railroad names on the freight cars are either Canadian Pacific, Canadian National and BC Rail. This would be surprising if the action actually did take place in the USA. See more
