Storyline

Mulder and Scully travel to Houston after a NASA employee, Michelle Generoo, shows them evidence that a space shuttle may have been sabotaged. They had recently had to abort a launch just seconds before lift-off and another launch is now scheduled. The man in charge of the program is a legendary Gemini astronaut, Col. Marcus Aurelius Belt. He claims there's nothing to the scrubbed launch that they weren't aware of and the talk of sabotage is nonsense. The second launch goes off without any problems but ground control is soon encountering difficulties communicating with the craft. It's all related to something that happened to Belt during his last Gemini flight and it's now affecting his judgment. Written by garykmcd

Great Episode
3 March 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I actually cannot believe, looking down the comments page that people are giving this poor reviews. I'm sorry, but I thought the Space page and Calusari page had been swapped.

This is an amazing episode. Okay, it may not make much sense, but at least it's fun. You bunch of morons who gave this one star just watch the Calusari, the true worst episode of the X-Files. I don't understand how you can hate this.

You can get much worse than this. A great episode. Heed my word people, this isn't bad. If you want bad try watching Hellinger...

That's the definition of bad.
