Beyond 2003 - 2015


Mulder and Scully are on their own, getting by as they can, possibly staying on the road. Mulder would probably not be extradited for his death sentence because the conviction would not hold up to the light of day. (Implied by The Truth)


The military doctor who examined the alleged alien at the Northwest New Mexico crash site contacts Mulder. He says he does not want the truth to die with him and that he did not know how his work would be used. But he wants Mulder to discover the truth which he will then confirm (My Struggle).

Several children are born starting around now as the result of unsuccesful genetic experiments by Dr. August Goldman. When he sees their pictures in 2016, Mulder says that none of them look more than ten years old (My Struggle).

2006, May

William's fifth birthday.  If he is able to do unusual things, they may be showing up by now.


Scully has acquired a job as physician at Our Lady of Sorrows, a Catholic hospital somewhere in Washington, DC. She and Mulder live at a rural farm house. He becomes a hermit, grows a beard, and spends his days cutting clipping articles out of newspapers and magazines about paranormal activity. He is more or less hiding out from the FBI charges against him. (I Want to Believe) Note: location given in My Struggle, and Scully also conforms that she has worked at the hospital for seven years.

In one possible time line, biology researcher Lisa Ianelli meets a scientist who has discovered how to control tachyons. Research eventually produces a way of causing wormholes through time with these tachyons. The wormholes, however, are extremely hot. Lisa develops a technique, using her friend Jason Nichols' compound that allows freezing of human tissue without cellular damage, to make time travel practical. (Synchrony)

The end of the calendar of the Mayan people, whose calendar was also incorporated into the calendar of the Aztec, who worshiped lizard gods. (Archeological accounts, setting the moment anywhere between December 21 and 23.) Could the lizard gods be based on the reptilian early/larval form of the grey aliens?

February 23, 2014

At some point, now or earlier, Scully and Mulder are no longer living together. In My Struggle, Sveta says that Scully diagnosed Mulder with endogenous depression, which led to the end of their relationship. Scully and Mulder remain caring toward each other.
