Description:

Some time ago, I came up with a premise which I described as "the bastard child of the space program, The X-Files, and the Lisa Nowak case." To misquote Arlo Guthrie, it was to be about "crime-fighting, mother-stabbing, father-raping, and all kinds of mean nasty ugly things." Mostly about crime-fighting, actually. It was to be about two government bureaucrats brought together by chance, who found themselves fighting corruption, conspiracy and aliens, and who along the way came to develop a sort of grudging respect for one another. An X-Files spin-off sort of like The Lone Gunmen, only with a better pension plan. Who says bureaucrats are boring?
