No English translation available yetFBI Special Agent Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) bekommt mit Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) eine neue Kollegin, die beweisen soll, dass an Mulders Glaube an das Übernatürliche und Außerirdische nichts dran ist. Mulder ist in die X-Akten-Abteilung des FBI abgeschoben worden, in der ungelöste Fälle mit scheinbar paranormalem Hintergrund landen. Mulder glaubt an Entführungen durch Außerirdische, seit seine Schwester verschwand, als beide noch Kinder waren. Gleich der erste gemeinsame Fall von Mulder und Scully, es scheint ebenfalls jemand durch Außerirdische entführt worden zu sein, bringt das Weltbild der eigentlich skeptischen Scully zumindest etwas ins Wanken. Mit dem Cigarette Smoking Man (William B. Davis) tritt auch schon einer der großen mysteriösen Bösewichte der Serie auf. Er scheint Verbindungen zum Pentagon zu haben und lässt wichtige Beweismittel verschwinden, die einen paranormalen Hintergrund des Falles belegen könnten. Mit Deep Throat (Jerry Hardin) erscheint in der zweiten Episode ein Gegenstück zum Cigarette Smoking Man: Deep Throat hat zwar ebenso Regierungsverbindungen, gibt Mulder aber regelmäßig Tipps. Vor allen Dingen teilt er ihm mit, dass Außerirdische schon vor sehr langer Zeit auf der Erde gelandet seien. Ebenfalls auf Mulders Seite stehen die Lone Gunmen, Richard Langly (Dean Haglund), Melvin Frohike (Tom Braidwood) und John Fitzgerald Byers (Bruce Harwood), ihres Zeichens Verschwörungstheoretiker mit ausgezeichneten Hackerkenntnissen. Später taucht auch FBI Assistant Director Walter Skinner (Mitch Pileggi) auf, der Mulder zunächst wenig freundlich gegenübertritt, im Laufe der Zeit aber ebenfalls zu einem Verbündeten wird. In der letzten Folge der ersten Staffel wird Mulder bei seinen Ermittlungen über ein offenbar außerirdisches Virus gefangengenommen. Als Deep Throat einen von Scully entwendeten außerirdischen Fötus einem Finsterling im Tausch gegen Mulders Freiheit übergibt, wird Deep Throat erschossen. Seine letzten Worte: “Vertraue niemandem.” Dies erweist sich als guter Tipp, werden doch die X-Akten geschlossen, und der Cigarette Smoking Man unterschlägt mit dem außerirdischen Fötus abermals Beweismittel. In den alleinstehenden Folgen der ersten Staffel geht es unter anderem um menschenleberfressende Mutanten, künstliche Intelligenzen, geklonte Schwestern und Werwölfe. (CD)
