INT. UFO Operating Room Fox Mulder, FBI Agent in charge of the X-Files, lies on a cold steel table. An average sized alien walks up and appears to be taking his vitals and writing them down in a strange apparatus. MULDER Why me? Why have you chosen me over every other human on Earth? I'm just an ordinary guy. What do I have that's so special? ALIEN You are very special indeed. You were chosen for this mission because we need someone who is not afraid to die for the greater good. Mulder notices a strange glowing symbol has just appeared on his chest: it is a pyramid with an eye in the middle. MULDER (cont'd) What? What does that mean? The alien hands him a syringe. ALIEN This will put you into a deep sleep. Mulder sleeps for a while and when he wakes up, he is in an ornate office. The chair spins around and Mulder sees the head of the Illuminati sitting at the desk, it is none other than: JAMES GORDON GODFREY, Vice President of the United States. GODFREY Welcome to the future, Mr. Mulder. Mulder looks around and realizes he is in a futuristic world. Mulder sees the following futuristic things: 1) A huge flying saucer shaped spaceship hovering above Washington D.C. 2) A man being held by soldiers on the White House lawn. 3) People in lab coats working on various experiments. The ALIEN taps Mulder's shoulder and points towards the White House. Mulder and the Alien enter the Oval office and see Dana Scully sitting on the couch. SCULLY I'm glad you're here, Fox. I was worried about you. MULDER Me too. SCULLY It's weird isn't it? How much we have in common. ALIEN The galaxy is in danger and only you two can save it! MULDER I accept to be your savior! The Alien removes his mask and shows himself. He is wearing a white lab coat. It is Dr. Arthur Grier. SCULLY Is that really him? MULDER Yes. DR GRIER Our galaxy is in danger of destruction from the black hole in our outer solar system. The best way to protect the planet is to send a probe inside the black hole. If we do this, the probe will absorb all the matter that surrounds the black hole. SCULLY But why send a probe? Logically that makes no sense. MULDER I will fly the probe! GRIER We cannot risk it. The black hole is a million times bigger than the Earth. Even if you could survive the trip, you would never come back out. SCULLY Then how will I ever know what happened? MULDER I will send you back in time to before the probe enters the black hole. Then you will witness everything that happens. SCULLY How long will I be gone? MULDER Just three minutes. GRIER That's impossible. MULDER Dr. Grier, you don't believe in anything do you? GRIER No. Before Scully can reason with him, Mulder has begun flying towards the black hole. Dr Grier and Scully look nervously at the countdown timer that is set for 3 minutes. As the seconds tick down, Mulder gets closer and closer to the black hole, and at 3 minutes the screen goes dark. Mulder is now trapped in a black hole! INT. Flying Saucer Mulder floats in space. He sees the Earth below him. SCULLY Are you okay? MULDER I think so. SCULLY You look like you've seen a ghost. DR GRIER I heard that Mulder's cat got eaten by an alien named Alf. That's why he joined the X-Files. SCULLY I didn't hear that. DR GRIER It's true. I'm surprised you haven't figured it out yet. SCULLY What do you mean? DR GRIER Alf was the alien. He's been hiding on Earth for years. SCULLY What? DR GRIER He's been spying on us. Alf enters the room. ALF Good boy. SCULLY Where did you come from? ALF I came from the future. SCULLY The future? GRIER Alf, tell her the truth. ALF I'm not going to say another word until you give me a treat. SCULLY You're Alf? ALF I am Alf. SCULLY You're the one who sent Mulder back in time. Dr Grier hands Alf a "treat" of jerky made from cats. Alf eats his jerky and nods. ALF Yes I did send him back in time, but it was just so I could get a treat. SCULLY Why? ALF Because I'm hungry. SCULLY How long have you been watching us? ALF Ever since you moved into the house. Alf leans in for a kiss with Scully. She pulls away. SCULLY What? ALF I want a kiss. SCULLY I thought you were my friend. ALF I'm sorry. A time anomaly appears in front of Scully and Mulder is tossed out. SCULLY Fox! Thank god you are all right! How was the future? MULDER I saw some things. SCULLY Like what? MULDER I saw the end of the world. SCULLY Wow, that sounds scary. MULDER It was pretty terrifying. Mulder tells the group of the terrifying end of the world: nuclear war, famine, and global warming. SCULLY How can you know these things? MULDER I'm from the future. SCULLY Oh my God! Scully realize this is not the same Mulder but instead a different future Mulder from way further in the future. MULDER And it looks like it's happening. SCULLY How do you know? MULDER I went back in time and changed history. SCULLY You went back in time? Mulder tells about what he has done in the past: stopping the Soviet Union from launching the first missile in Cuba, preventing the assassination of John F. Kennedy, and saving the lives of countless people. MULDER It's all coming to an end now. Mulder pulls out a gun and shoots Alf in the head. SCULLY What are you doing? MULDER I'm killing the alien. SCULLY You're not supposed to kill aliens. MULDER I'm not sure what else to do.
