Border police chase a motorcyclist who illegally crossed from Canada to North Dakota. He loses control and crashes into
a ravine, next to his crumpled body lie rubbings of the same symbols found on the spacecraft in Africa.
Next morning Scully is called to Deputy Director Kersh’s office, also present are Assistant Directors Skinner and Follmer.
They show her the rubbings and ask if she recognises them, though she does, Scully denies knowledge.
Back in X-files basement office Scully finds the old case file with the rubbings she took from the spacecraft in Africa
At Scullys request Doggett travels to the crash site in North Dakota, Follmer is already leading the investigation and
is surprised to see Doggett there, warning him not to interfere in the case.
Unseen the motorcyclist crawls out of hiding, he has burns on his body. He removes a metal object from his pocket that
has the same symbols as the rubbings on it and his burns begin to heal.
Reyes studies the rubbings from the old case file and questions Scully about them, she explains the spacecraft contained
passages from all religious texts, bringing in to question everything mankind believes.
Doggett meanwhile discovers that the motorcyclist is undercover FBI agent Comer, sent to infiltrate a UFO cult.
He also has the new rubbings, which do not match the previous ones, leading them to believe the cult has found a second
Scully returns home to find Comer about to suffocate William, she shoots him and then questions him, he tells her the
cult want William dead. She calls on the Lone Gunmen to protect William. However shortly afterwards Doggett is knocked
down by a car and the driver kidnaps William from the Lone Gunmen at gunpoint.
Reyes: "If it were true these symbols wouldn't just be words ... they'd be
the very Word of God on the surface of an alien spacecraft."
Scully: "It'd mean that everything mankind believes in ... is in question."
