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

Worst X-Files episode ever
20 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

This is the worst episode of x-files ever, i couldn't believe how poor the storyline was, it seems like they forced Mulder and Scullys involvement in a NASA space launch to create a "Space" episode that didn't need to be created, the episode is stretched out to fill the required running time with filler footage of real space launches and astronaut footage that is cut together in comedic fashion and repeated many times, with constant technical jargon accompanying the footage. The episode is written so badly that every time something is mentioned to do with NASA Mulder explains it to Scully, Scully basically exists in this episode to inform the audience of what is happening, and has none of her own character development , even though this is early in season 1 and we know very little about her. Poor episode, doesn't get much worse than this in X-files season 1-9.
