The X-files

2X01 Little Green Men

After the death of Deep Throat and the closure of the X-files, Mulder and Scully are separated and re-assigned. Scully returns to her teaching position at the FBI Academy, Quantico. And Mulder bogged down in mundane phone tap surveillance work begins to lose faith in his search for the truth, after everything he has been witness to in the X-files, he has no hard evidence to prove the existence of extraterrestrials and his sister's abduction. Mulder is called by his contact on Capitol Hill, Senator Matheson who questions Mulder on his knowledge about the Voyager spacecraft sent out in to the cosmos with a message from mankind. Senator Matheson explains that the abandoned Arecibo ionosphere observatory in Puerto Rico had received a signal for outer space, that appears to be information from the Voyager message. With a Blue Beret UFO Retrieval Team already on route to destroy the evidence, Mulder goes AWOL in Puerto Rico to the abandoned SETI Program site, in search of contact with intelligent alien life forms. Scully is questioned about Mulder's whereabouts and manages to trace him via evidence at his apartment and one of his pseudonym's 'George E Hale' on a flight manifest to Puerto Rico. But as Scully finds Mulder so does the Blue Beret UFO Retrieval Team. In their rush to leave most of the evidence is left behind. Back in Washington Mulder finds the evidence he does have is worthless. However he has found the faith to keep looking for the truth.

Noteworthy Quote

Mulder: "I wanted to believe....but the tools have been taken away. The X-files had been shut down. They closed our eyes, our voices had been silenced, our ears now deaf to the realms of extreme possibilities."
