Mulder goes in search of the Queen Anne, a British luxury liner, that mysteriously disappeared in the Bermuda Triangle in 1939. After being shipwrecked, he gets pulled aboard the Queen Anne by a crew that believes they are still in 1939. Meanwhile, at the FBI, Scully tries to get the Lone Gunmen and Skinner to help her locate the lost Mulder. Written by

Most of the interior ship scenes were filmed aboard the Queen Mary, a real British ocean liner that was built in Scotland in 1936 and which, since the late 1960s, has been dry-docked at Long Beach Harbor and preserved as a museum and hotel. The Queen Mary has two other connections to this "X Files" episode: it was requisitioned and retrofitted by the Allied forces during World War II and used as a troop transport throughout the war (under the sobriquet "The Grey Ghost"); and the management of the real ship and hotel claims that they are "haunted," offering several paranormal-themed tours of their facilities.

The action in this episode takes place prior to the United States' entry into World War II; the analogue to Scully claims to be working for the Office of Srategic Services (OSS), but that agency did not come into being until 13 June 1942, about six months after the US entered the conflict. However, since the WW2 era sequences are as likely to be a hallucination as time travel, this may be deliberate and based upon Mulder's lack of knowledge. See more
