The X-files

1X79 Pilot

FBI agent Dana Scully, an instructor at the FBI Academy Quantico for two year since being recruited directly out of medical school. With her background as a medical doctor with a degree in physics, she is assigned by Section Chief Blevins in the prescence of a mysterious Cigarette Smoking Man to evaluate the validity of another agent's work. FBI agent Fox 'Spooky' Mulder is an Oxford educated psychologist, considered one of the best analysts in the Violent Crimes Section and marked for big things in the FBI following a distinguished stint at Behavioural Science. But agent Mulder has become the 'FBI's most unwanted' having developed a consuming devotion to an unassigned project outside the Bureau mainstream. The X-files, unexplained cases that it seems the FBI would rather bury than investigate. Following their introductions in the X-files basement office in Washington, the two agents travel to Bellefleur Oregon to investigate the death of a high school student Karen Swenson. Her body bears the same red marks as previous victims found across the US. They discover that a number of Karen Swenson's fellow students have also been killed. One student Billy Miles' story confirms Mulder belief that they have been abducted and experimented on by aliens, a theory that Scully with her scientific background finds hard to substantiate, even after an exhumed coffin reveals non-human remains and an unidentified metallic object found in the nasal cavity.
