The storyline starts after I Want to Believe
David Duchovny’s new movie Phantom released March 1 in theaters across America.
Duchovny portrays “Bruni,” a mysterious KGB officer with a plan that could instigate World War III. Ed Harris is “Demi” who must save the world from this fate. This Cold War thriller takes place on a submarine, which is where Mulder found himself during End Game (The X-Files 2.17).
Reviews for the movie applaud the acting by Harris and Duchovny.
The film is rated “R” for violence and runs 1 hour and 37 minutes.
The X-Files Gillian Anderson has been cast as the lead in a new conspiracy series from NBC. According to Reuters, “The pilot concerns an international conspiracy that pulls in Washington’s most powerful players.
An unlikely puppeteer brings everyone from CEOs to The President of the United States to their knees by threatening the things they hold most dear. Forced together by dire circumstances, these power brokers, the FBI and a rookie secret service agent must unravel the mystery to take back control of their lives.
The project comes from 20th Century Fox Television.”
We celebrate that Anderson will appear on American television again, but we must ask why Fox can’t see fit to bring Anderson and David Duchovny back together for a mini-series or a movie ?
For our viewing pleasure, we’ll watch Scully and Mulder in

The Ultimate Fanfic Winner is “Pyrexia”, written by philefic. This story is a riveting casefile featuring Mulder and Scully. Summary: Skinner sends Mulder and Scully to Dallas to investigate the mysterious circumstances surrounding his step-father’s death when a febrile dream that his sister had reveals there is more to what is documented in the coroner’s report. Mulder and Scully have been on top of their game in their investigations into the X-Files and in their personal relationship but will this case break them? Will the true nature of their relationship be revealed to their superiors and will they live to reveal their true feelings to each other?
The Ultimate Character Representation winner is “Sins of the Father” written by MHaines. This short story was selected from among the entries as most true to the characters as represented on the show. Summary: Mulder is trapped in an underground boxcar as Cancer Man attempts to burn him alive after Mulder discovers the bodies of human test subjects.
The Most Likely to be a Chris Carter Episode is “Waiting for a Miracle” by Dana Hale. This piece asks the question: What is Scully to do when she finds a new chip implanted in her neck?
The Most Original Fanfic winner is “Triangle, Part Deux” by Dr. Fox. This light-hearted story tells what happens when The Lone Gunmen take Scully to Austria to look for Mulder, who has apparently time traveled again.
