Season two of The X-Files opened September 16, 1994, on a somber note, as Mulder and Scully were forced to deal with the disbandment of the X-Files Unit. Assigned to mundane FBI investigations, the two agents are bored out of their minds. But things begin to pick up when, tipped off by Senator Richard Matheson (Raymond J. Barry), Mulder heads to Puerto Rico to investigate possible extraterrestrial activity at an abandoned radio telescope site. Mitch Pileggi makes his first appearance as FBI Assistant Director Skinner. Written by Glen Morgan and James Wong, "Little Green Men" was the title of the series' second-season opener.
