The X-files movie Fight the Future continues from the time frame of the cliffhanger final episode of the 5th series. With
the X-files out of action after the fire in the basement office.
The movie opens back in pre-historic Texas, with two cave
men hunting down an alien being in an ice cavern.
In the present, a young boy Stevie falls through the ground while playing with his friends and lands in the
same cavern. As his friends peer down from above, Stevie is attacked by the black cancer, which also infects two firemen who
attempt to rescue him and a further two firemen who go in after the first two.
Mulder and Scully, un-assigned from the X-files, are inspecting a building opposite the Federal building in
Dallas after a bomb threat warning. Scully clears the building when Mulder discovers a bomb which shortly afterwards detonates,
destroying the building.
The powers that be in the FBI try to pin the blame on Mulder and Scully for the explosion, and endeavour to spilt the
partners up. Scully tells Mulder she is going to quit the FBI.
Back in Washington, Mulder is contacted by Dr Kurtzweil
who explains that the bomb blast in Dallas was part of a cover up by members of the government.
Mulder later learns that the body of a young boy and three firemen were found in the bombed building, which
they thought had been cleared. Adding substance to Dr Kurtzweil claims, given further credence when Scully's autopsy of one
of the firemen can not produce a cause of death.
Mulder manages to convince Scully to help him investigate the case as he needs her. They uncover a sinister
conspiracy by the shadowy syndicate to aid aliens in there colonization plans. And their part in a planned Armageddon that
will affect every man, woman and child on the planet.
But even the syndicate are caught out, as the black cancer has mutated into a virus that affects humans using
them to create a new alien life form. A virus for which there is no cure, save for a weak antidote developed by the Russians.
After Mulder and Scully discover the syndicate's secret bee farm in the desert, bees that will be used as carriers of
the deadly virus. The syndicate members take steps against them, kidnapping Scully and shooting Mulder. The syndicate infects
Scully with the virus and takes her to a secret installation in Antarctica.
Mulder leaves hospital with the help of the Lone Gunman and Assistant Director Skinner and attempts to find
Dr Kurtzweil for more information but instead meets the Well Manicured Man, who gives him Scully's location and a small amount
of the Russian's antidote shortly before he is killed by a car bomb.
Mulder tracks Scully to the installation in Antarctica, gaining entry via a tunnel in the ice. He stumbles across thousands
of cryo-tubes containing people infected with the virus, gestating the new alien life form. He locates Scully and injects
the antidote, some of which gets in to the system. Mulder and Scully flee the installation just in time as it turns out to
be an alien craft. As they collapse at a safe distance, Mulder watches in awe as the craft flies over head and disappears
in to the clouds, moments later Scully regains consciousness.
A helicopter lands at the syndicate's new bee farm in the desert in North Africa, the Cigarette Smoking Man steps out
and walks towards Strughold. They discuss the new bee farm and the progress of their plans. The Cigarette Smoking Man informs
Strughold that Mulder has become reinvested and poses a threat to them. Strughold retorts, 'He is but one man. One man alone
can not fight the future.'. The Cigarette Smoking Man hands a telegram to Strughold, it reads;
"X-FILES RE-OPENED. STOP.
PLEASE ADVISE. STOP."
Mulder: "I'm the key figure in an ongoing government charade, a plot to conceal the truth about the existence
of extraterrestrials. It's a global conspiracy actually, with key players in the highest levels of power, that reaches down
into the lives of every man, woman and child on this planet....So of course no one believes me. I'm a..I'm an annoyance to
my superiors, a joke to my peers, they call me 'Spooky', Spooky Mulder, whose sister was abducted by aliens when he was just
a kid. And who now chases little green men with a badge and a gun, shouting to the heavens and to anyone who'll listen that
the fix is in, that the sky is falling, and when it hits it's gonna be the shit-storm of all time."
