/Background/
_The X Files_ is a television series dealing with two FBI agents, Fox Mulder and
Dana Scully, in the Bureau's Violent Crimes section. They work with the "X 
files," cases that have unexplainable elements and often involve the paranormal.

/Production Notes/
The series was created by Chris Carter.
    Executive producers for the show include Carter, James Wong and Glen Morgan,
and R.W. Goodwin. The show's supervising producer is Howard Gordon, and the 
co-producer is Paul Rabwin. Paul Brown and David Nutter are producers.
    The 
show is filmed almost entirely in Vancouver, British Columbia.
    _The X Files_ is *not based on true events or real FBI X files.* The 
episodes are fiction, the plots loosely based on news reports of unexplained 
events around the world and other unexplained phenomena. The pilot does open 
with a note saying that the events were based on an actual real-life story, but 
was put there for effect.

/Deep Background-Fox Mulder/
Agent Fox Mulder, an Oxford-trained psychologist with a photographic memory, is 
one of the FBI Violent Crimes division's best agents, although he is in disfavor
with not only his superiors but also his colleagues because of his interest in 
the Bureau's X files. He stumbled upon these files, dealing with unexplained 
phenomena, during his first three years with the Bureau, as a crack analyst in 
the Bureau's behavioral sciences department. [Chris Carter, _Starlog #201_, Apr
il 1994]
    His fascination with the paranormal stems from a childhood incident -- his 
sister Samantha disappeared from their home in Chilmark, Mass. (pop. 650) when 
he was 12 and she was 8. Mulder claims she was abducted by aliens; during 
regressions he recalled hearing his sister's cries for help, and a bright light 
which kept him paralyzed and told him that his sister would be all right. 
[Conduit] This  memory differs from a dream Mulder experienced one night [Little
Green Men].
    Mulder's early meteoric rise at the Bureau enabled him to make high-placed 
friends in Congress -- one of them being SETI proponent and influential senator 
Richard Matheson [Little Green Men].  These contacts had kept him from 
retribution from higher-ups, although they assigned him a partner, with the 
tacit idea of discrediting what he does so that he can be dismissed. However, 
Mulder picked up a somewhat vacillating ally in a mysterious covert individual 
known as Deep Throat. [Deep Throat, Fallen Angel, Eve, Young at Heart, E.
B.E., Erlenmeyer Flask]. 
    Deep Throat was killed by an equally mysterious covert opponent (Crew Cut 
Man) during an attempt to rescue Mulder. Mulder confirmed his burial at 
Arlington "through eight-power binoculars from a thousand yards away." [Little 
Green Men]. But he has acquired a second "deep information" associate, someone 
who calls himself Mr. X. [Sleepless] This mysterious man has been less than 
helpful to Mulder than his dead colleague. Mulder has also been told by an 
unknown individual that he has "a friend in the FBI" [The Host]. This friend was
discovered to be Assistant Director Skinner [One Breath].
    At the end of Season 1, the X Files division was shut down and Mulder was 
reassignedto wiretap surveillance [Little Green Men, The Host]. He also 
reluctantly acquired a new partner, Special Agent Alex Krycek [Sleepless, Duane 
Barry, Ascension], a younger agent who purported to be a believer, not only in 
Mulder's ideas but in Mulder himself. But Mulder's days in this mind-numbing 
duty were numb
ered. Assistant Director Skinner obliquely acknowledged that the X Files bureau 
served a valuable purpose in dealing successfully with the Bureau's oddball 
cases [The Host] and was bringing to light information that other covert parties
would prefer to keep buried [Ascension]. Following the disappearance of Mulder's
former partner Dana Scully, Skinner officially reopened the X Files [Ascension].
    Mulder is known around the Bureau by the nickname of "Spooky" [Pilot, Young 
at Heart] because of his interest in paranormal phenomena. "He is considered a 
loose cannon, a person who is maybe wasting time and money, and also his 
expertise, on an area the Bureau thinks has very little value." [Carter, 
Starlog]  Due to an incident on one of his first Bureau assignments (a fellow 
agent was killed) [Young at Heart], he eschews following investigations "by the 
book," opting instead for his own instincts and methods. He keeps notes for his 
field reports in a handwritten journal [Born Again].
    We believe Mulder doesn't
 "have a life," as we have seen nothing of his off-duty activities. However, 
some of this may stem from a relationship he had at Oxford ten years ago with a 
woman who is now with Scotland Yard (Phoebe Green [Fire]). He apparently was in 
love with her but she not with him. With the dissolution of the X Files 
division, however, Mulder may have been trying to revive his social life; an 
answering machine message berated him for missing a lunch date [Little Green 
Men].
    Mulder has a fear of fire [Fire], which may have been conquered during his 
rescue of the children of British MP Sir Malcolm Marsden (who also happened to 
be Phoebe's latest fling). He is also a fan of the National Aeronautics and 
Space Administration (NASA). [Space] He has a habit of unshelling shelled 
sunflower seeds, and making droll comments which X-Philes have come to note as 
"Mulderisms." 	
    Mulder enjoys wearing wild ties to work, and seems to be a New York Knicks 
fan.  He appears to had a fondness for classic rock [minor references, Be
yond the Sea, Gender Bender] and classic science fiction movies [Tooms, 
Erlenmeyer Flask], and iced tea seems to be his nonalcoholic beverage of choice 
[Tooms]. There are "hints" that Mulder has an interest in pornography -- in one 
episode, we see Mulder looking at the centerfold of some "men's magazine" 
talking about how the woman claims she was abducted by aliens; in another 
episode Scully remarks that she hadn't seen Mulder that excited since she caught
him going through the Adult Video News; a third episode mentions a subscription 
to Celebrity Skin. As a psychologist, he favors using hypnotic regression as a 
psychological healing tool, and hates the unnecessary use of medication [Born 
Again].

/Deep Background - Dana Scully/
Dana Katherine Scully is a medical doctor with an undergraduate degree in 
physics from the University of Maryland [Jersey Devil]. She was recruited for 
the FBI right out of medical school, and had been teaching at the FBI Academy in
Quantico, Va. She was assigned by Section Chief Scot
t Blevins to be Mulder's partner in order to keep an eye on him and determine 
whether he is perhaps too obsessed with the X files.
    Scully is skeptical of anything paranormal, believing that everything has a 
logical, scientifically-quantified explanation. Though in most of the cases she 
and Mulder have been on she has not witnessed any overt paranormal activities, 
she has had brushes with unexplainable phenomena that may have her start 
questioning her beliefs [Beyond the Sea; Lazarus; Born Again; Erlenmeyer Flask].
    At the end of Season 1, the X Files division was shut down and Scully was 
reassigned, returning to the FBI academy at Quantico, Va. to isntruct new agents
on the bascis of forensic medicine [Little Green Men]. However, Mulder has 
called upon her expertise in violent crime cases to which he has been assigned 
[The Host, Blood]. Scully was abducted by escaped mental patient Duane Barry and
disappeared [Ascension]. After a three-minth absence, she showed up at a 
Georgetown hospital in a coma {On
e Breath]. She revived and recovered, and is back as Mulder's partner.
    Scully is a middle child; she has one older and one younger brother [Born 
Again], and an older sister, Melissa [One Breath]. Her father died early in 
1994; they were apparently close at one time (she called him Ahab; he called her
Starbuck), but her family disapproved of her joining the Bureau. [Beyond the 
Sea] She had a yearlong relationship with an instructor at the Academy, Jack 
Willis, with whom she shared the same birthdate (Feb. 23). [Lazarus] She is just
as much a workaholic as Mulder, and is currently not seeing anyone [Jersey 
Devil].
    Scully drinks her coffee with cream, no sugar [E.B.E.]. She was raised as a 
Catholic [Miracle Man]. She wears a necklace bearing a small cross, which was 
left behind in the car in which she was abducted [Ascension] and was returned to
her by Mulder [One Breath].

/FBI Superiors/
Section Chief Scott Blevins (Charles Cioffi) is with the Violent Crimes Section 
of the Bureau. [Pilot] Blevins assig
ned Scully to be Mulder's partner, and her field reports are sent to his office.
[early episodes]

Section Chief Joseph McGrath (Frederick Coffin) is with the Office of 
Professional Responsibility [Fallen Angel] and seemed determined to have Mulder 
fired and the X Files shut down.

Assistant Director Walter S. Skinner (Mitch Pileggi) is one of the Bureau 
higher-ups reading Scully's reports. He warned both Scully and Mulder that their
unorthodox methods of investiation may have dire consequences [Tooms], and 
followed through by shutting down the X Files division at an order from the 
highest levels of government [Erlenmeyer Flask]. He has since had second 
throughts and has reopened the X Files [Ascension], and overtly showed his 
support for Mulder and the X files [One Breath].

/Recurring Characters/
[Season 1] "Deep Throat" (Jerry Hardin) is a mysterious individual believed to 
be some sort of higher-up government official. Mulder contacted him via a blue 
light shining from his apartment window; DT called Mulde
r and signaled him with a series of clicks [E.B.E.]. The method of choosing a 
meeting place was not determined. He appears to have been exterminated in the 
episode "The Erlenmeyer Flask."
      Speculation on Deep Throat is contained in Internal Affairs X-File Inquiry
#875110-6249 [aka the Deep Throat FAQ, posted by Special Agent Jeff Gostin].

[Season 1 and 2] "Cigarette Smoking Man" (William B. Davis) is another 
mysterious individual who, like Deep Throat, appears to be a higher-up 
government official with some power. Assistant Director Skinner seemed to be 
deferring to his opinion early in our notice of him [Tooms] but Skinner ordered 
him out of his office during a discussion with Mulder after the agent had 
abandoned his assignment to investigate possible alien contact in Puerto Rico 
[Little Green Men]. CSM also kept a silent watch on the proceedings in Blevins's
and Skinner's offices and buried vital evidence in a secret Pentagon storage 
room [Pilot, Erlenmeyer Flask]. He also used Special Agent Alex Kryc
ek to keep an eye on Mulder and any of Mulder's investigations [Sleepless, Duane
Barry, Ascension]. Mulder pulled a gun on him and threatened him with death in 
his studio apartment (at 900 W. Georgia St.) [One Breath].

[Season 2] "Special Agent Alex Krycek" (Nicholas Lea) moved into the role of 
Mulder's partner with the unexplained murders of former Vietnam veterans 
[Sleepless]. We discovered, however, that Krycek had a hidden agenda, as a 
lackey for Cigarette Smoking Man: keep an eye on Mulder and keep him from 
finding out information that would bring certain covert activities to light 
[Sleepless, Ascension]. With the disappearance of Dana Scully and the reopening 
of the X Files, Krycek himself has disappeared [Ascension].

[Season 2] "Mr. X" (Steven Williams), an acquaintance of Deep Throat, is even 
more mysterious than his predecessor. Mr. X's information is even more 
reluctantly shared. Mulder at this point apparently cannot contact Mr. X, 
although he attempted to by taping an X to his front window and s
hining a light through it [One Breath].

/The Romance Aspect/
There will be *no romance* between Fox Mulder and Dana Scully.
    Everyone readily admits that there is some attraction, a "sexual tension," 
between the characters. However, neither series creator Chris Carter, nor actors
David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, nor most X-Philes, want a full-blown 
romance to develop.
    Carter "firmly believes that a series can be 'ruined' if the characters 
cross the boundaries of sexual tension." [Starlog #201, April 1994]
    Anderson [Starlog Platinum #2] says, "I don't want that to happen, David 
doesn't want that to happen, [Chris Carter] I don't think wants that to happen. 
The show's not about intimacy between us; it would be a huge mistake to make it 
about that. Both of our characters are single-minded about our work and 
respectful enough not to complicate it in any way. We [eventually] warm up to 
each other, and there are times when there's more sexual tension than others, 
but it's not going to be a romantic 
relationship."
    Duchovny's viewpoint [Starlog #202, May 1994]: "Having a friendship and a 
professional working relationship with a woman is much more interesting....It's 
very easy to just jump into bed. That doesn't take much imagination."
    So: don't even think about it!

/The Pregnancy/
Although actress Gillian Anderson was pregnant, her condition was not reflected 
in the show's scripts. Contrary to published rumors, the character of Dana 
Scully will *not* be pregnant -- by aliens, Elvis :-), or otherwise. Anderson 
appeared in the first six episodes of the season and was written purposely out 
of the seventh. She returned in the eighth episode, "One Breath.". The 
production company filmed "creatively" to disguise the pregnancy,.
    Anderson gave birth to a daughter, Piper, on Sept. 25.

/Deep Background-Chris Carter/
Chris Carter, 37, began his career as a screenwriter in 1985 at The Walt Disney 
Studios. Previously, Carter had been working as a freelance journalist, writing 
and traveling extensively abroad. At Disney, Carter wrote and produced several 
television movies in addition to the television pilot _Cameo by Night_ for NBC 
and _The Nanny_, a sitcom for The Disney Channel. He took a short leave of 
absence from Disney to co-produce the second season of the comedy series _Rags 
to Riches_,  starring Joe Bologna, and returned in 1989 to create and executive 
produce "Brand New Life," a recurring comedy series which ran as part of a 
rotating schedule on Disney's Sunday night lineup. [Fox press packet for _X 
Files_]

/Deep Background - David Duchovny/
David Duchovny, 34, is probably best known for his memorable role as the 
transvestite detective Dennis/Denise in the television series "Twin Peaks." A 
native New Yorker, Duchovny graduated from Princeton University and then earned 
a graduate degr
ee in English literature at Yale University, preparing for a career as a 
teacher. While at Yale, he began commuting to New York to study acting and was 
soon appearing in off-Broadway plays. In 1987, in the midst of his doctoral 
studies, he left Yale to pursue acting full time.  
    Duchovny (pronounced Doo-kuv'-nee), 6'1" tall, was born August 7, 1960. His 
parents, Amran (a publicist for the American Jewish Committee) and Margaret (an 
elementary school teacher) divorced when he was 11. He has one brother, Daniel, 
and a sister, Laurie. He has a girlfriend, actresss Perrey Reeves, and resides 
in Malibu, Calif. [Fox press packet for _X Files_ and _People_ magazine, April 
18, 1994 issue]
    A FAQ on Duchovny is posted on the first of the month by Kellie 
Matthews-Simmons (matthewk@ucsu.colorado.edu) and Sarah Stegall 
(sstegall@sparta.sjsu.edu).

/Deep Background - Gillian Anderson/
Gillian Anderson first gained recognition as an actresss for her off-Broadway 
performance in Alan Ayckbourne's "Absent Friends" at the Manhattan Theater Club,
for which she won a Theatre World Award. Her love of theater began in high 
school where she participated in community theater. In college, Anderson studies
with the National Theater of Great Britain at Cornell University in Ithaca, 
N.Y., and then at the Goodman Theater School at Chicago's DePaul University, 
where she obtained her BFA degree. 
    Anderson, 5' 2" tall, was born August 9, and lives in Los Angeles.  [Fox 
press packet for _X Files_] She is married, and gave birth to a daughter, Piper,
on Sept. 24, 1994 She is not related in any way to Jo Anderson who appeared as
 Diana in the television show _Beauty and the Beast_.
    A FAQ on Anderson has been put together by Alan Sawyer 
(mulder@melbourne.DIALix.oz.au).

That's a batting average of .200.

Charles McGrew. The results are below. How did your favorite episodes/writers

/Miscellaneous information/

As a result of an informal poll conducted Spring 94, net.fans of the _The X 
Files_ have chosen (with a 73% approval rating) to be called X-Philes. The name 
seems to have caught on in the media, with its use in many articles on the show 
and its online contacts.

There is a list of Mulderisms
 and Scullyisms being kept by Samuel Ziegler at ziegler@jhunix.hcf.jhu.edu. 
Contact Zieglar for more information.

Weapons:  Scully carries a Sig-Sauer P230.  Mulder currently uses a Sig Sauer 
P220. 

So far Mulder has fired his gun four times (to scare away wolves [Conduit] to 
kill John Barnett [Young at Heart], at the shapeshifter creature [Shapes] and at
a possible alien being [Little Green Men] though no shot actually left the gun),
and Scully, three times (three shots to stop the air duct fan [Ghost in the 
Machine], once to wound Lucas Henry [Beyond the Sea], three shots, to kill [so 
we thought] Warren Dupre [Lazarus])

Both Mulder and Scully have been shot once (Mulder, critically, in the upper 
femur in Beyond the Sea; Scully, in the chest though wearing her protective 
vest, in Young at Heart).

For the morbid: X Files' death toll to date: 90 [through Firewalker/second 
season]

Scully's FBI ID number is 2317-616, her home phone number is (202) 555-6431, 
[Ghost in the Machine.], her cellular phone number
 is 555-3564 [Sleepless], and her X File number is 73317.

Scully and Mulder met for the first time on March 6, 1992 X.T. (X Files Time) 
[Pilot].

Mulder has a computer at home, and his password is TRUSTNO1. He was a fan of the
television show "The Magician" as a child. [Little Green Men] Mulder lives in an
apartment (#4) in Alexandria [Novel:Goblins]

Ten Thirteen's production crew has had cameos (names and bodies) in various 
episodes: First Assistant Director Tom Braidwood appeared as _Lone Gunman_ 
photographer Frolicke in "E.B.E.",  "Blood," and "One Breath," and his name was 
used as the person taking over Howard Graves's parking spot in "Shadows" and as 
Mulder's alias to get into the secured government compound in Washington State 
in "E.B.E." Ken Kirzinger, stunt coordinator, appeared as Richter in "Ice." Hair
Stylist Malcolm Marsden's name was used for the British PM in "Fire." Vladimir 
Stefoff, First Assistant Director, had his name (as Val Stefoff) used as 
Scully's alias to get into the compound in "E.
B.E."

Story ideas: _The X Files_, like almost all network TV shows, does not accept 
unsolicited scripts or story ideas. If you have them, you will need to get 
yourself an agent to submit them to the show. Story ideas or scripts sent to the
show unagented will be returned or tossed in the trash. Ideas, scripts, and 
stories can be posted for other fans' enjoyment to the newsgroup 
alt.tv.x-files.creative.
