After a tip off from an inside source in Area 51, Mulder and Scully travel to Nevada to meet an informant who claims to have irrefutable proof that the government is experimenting with UFO technology. But they are intercepted by Area 51 employees who block the road and tell them that there are no such things as UFOs. During the confrontation a UFO passes overhead that causes Mulder and one of the Area 51 officials, Morris Fletcher to switch bodies. As Scully leaves with "Mulder", now Morris Fletcher. Mulder trapped in Morris' body tries to fit in with the other Area 51 employees to avoid arousing suspicion. As Morris settles in to Mulder's single man FBI agent lifestyle, Mulder uses his new identity's position to gain access to the secretive Area 51. In which capacity he investigates the crash of the UFO from the previous evening, the pilot it seems has switched bodies with a elderly Hopi Indian woman. Pointing to a link between the affects of a problem with the craft's anti-gravity drive and his own current condition, but how can he reverse the effects and return to normal.
