Far in the reaches
of space, there are races, alien beings from countless worlds with
countless appearances and countless agendas. A race known as the Alien Colonists, who walked the Earth
long before man or animal, plan their return. Men from the Government assisted the re-colonisation, men
like Bill Mulder and CGB Spender.
During the final stages of the colonisation, those who have
previously been abducted by the colonists and those who had been implanted
with alien-inspired technology, (Maherin Technology), would come together
in groups. In Kazakhstan, the first
of these grouping occurred, however, it was fifteen years too soon
according to the colonist timetable.
This grouping was not a result of the colonist calling, or by the
chips implanted in each of their necks, but because of the Alien
For a war had
begun. Each of the alien nations
were in upheaval and they existed in a sate of war. Cassandra Spender, also known as
‘Patient X’ and wife to CGB Spender (the Cigarette Smoking Man), believed
the aliens were here to spread the word of light among humanity, leading
everyone to a new state of existence in a higher plane. She was wrong, as she soon discovered.
grouping occurred at Sky Line Mountain, the place where Duane Barry had
taken Scully, where she was abducted.
Hundreds of people arrived, expecting to be enlightened by an alien
race, but instead found the Alien Rebels had arrived to kill them all. Using a hand held device, the Rebels are
able to ignite a persons body with a single touch, incinerating every
single part of their body.
Suspicious about what was going on, Mulder had several members of
the dead chosen at random and X Rayed.
In each one he discovered an implant, similar to the one that Scully
had removed and the one she was re-implanted with. As Scully warned Cassandra not to remove
her implant without contracting a disease, she suddenly felt the urge to be
somewhere. That night, she left her
home and travelled to a bridge where she was under the influence of her
implant. Once there, she met
Cassandra who had also been drawn to the location by her implant. At the Hydro Electric Power station, a
UFO arrived, and left after hovering over the bridge for a few moments and
then departed, leaving a group of Rebels with the abductees. As they attacked those on the bridge,
another UFO appeared, attacking the Rebels. Scully and some other survivors ran, narrowly escaping death,
while Cassandra was abducted by the colonist craft that killed the
those helping the colonists, were completely unaware that a war had
begun. It wasn’t until a Rebel
craft, perhaps the same one from the Hydro Electric Power Station, crashed
in Russia did they learn of the Rebels existence. Most noticeable, was the lack of eyes, mouth and nose on the
Rebels. One of the Syndicate
believed that they once had these facial features, and that what covered
them was simply facial scarring.
But what was more interesting was the fact that the scarring was
self-inflicted, as protection – protection from infection by the Black
Oil. When the vaccine which had
secretly been developed by the Syndicate to combat the Black Oil failed
when they tested it on an infected agent, one of the Syndicate Members, The
Well Manicured Man, suggested an alliance should be made between humanity
and the Rebels. The Syndicate
disagreed, believing that the only hope of survival was to develop a
vaccine in secret from the colonists.
To that end, they ordered that the Rebel should be turned over to
them, further preserving their lives.
However, The Well Manicured Man believed that if they turned over
the Alien Rebel, they would lose all chance of survival. The rest of the Syndicate disagreed –
they saw two options: one, create a vaccine for the Black Oil and survive,
and two, continue the work and create human-alien hybrids who will survive
as a slave race. Just as the Alien
Rebel which was to be turned over the colonists escaped just as the Alien
Bounty Hunter was about to kill it, using a spike to the neck.
Almost a year after the first encounter with
the Rebels, they struck again, killing a group of Syndicate doctors as they
performed experiments on a woman – Cassandra Spender. Cassandra was a success – a human alien
hybrid which would be immune to the Black Oil and who would be the first of
a slave race to the Colonists. The
Rebels were aware that if the project was exposed, the work would cease,
therefore, they spared Cassandra Spender, giving Mulder and anyone else who
kept their eyes open, the proof of the conspiracy and the existence of the
existence of alien beings. In order
to ensure that the work ended, the Colonists infiltrated the Syndicate by
killing one of its members, and disguising himself as that member. During a meeting, the Rebel suggested
that an alliance with the Rebels should be attempted. At that instant, the Cigarette Smoking
Man knew he was not who he appeared to be.
As an initiation task, he sent his son, Jeffery Spender to kill
him. The Rebels were basically the
same race as the Alien Bounty Hunter, except they had mutilated themselves
to prevent infection by The Black Oil.
Spender failed to kill the Rebel, believing it was just an old
man. Luckily, Krychek had been sent
to watch Jeffery and ensure no harm comes to him. Krychek used a spike-type device on the Rebel, piercing the
back of his neck, causing him to dissolve.
When the Syndicate learned that Cassandra was the first success,
they believed that the colonisation would commence. In order to survive, the headed to an
old airbase where they colonists would abduct them, and implant them with
alien genes which would allow them to live on as a slave race. However, as the group gathered, the
colonists struck, killing off virtually all members of the Syndicate, with
the exception of CGB Spender, the Smoking Man, and Special Agent Diana
Fowly, who had only just been let into the group by the Smoking Man.
Rebels done what Mulder could not – save humanity from the imminent
