    Inept is a good word. Neither Mulder or Scully ever really seemed to learn anything. I think what would have been clever on Scully's part would have been to turn in a fake bee. Allow it to go missing, reveal the real bee (and I'm sure there are ways to maintain the chain of custody where evidence is concerned) and expose the huge security hole in the FBI. And darn it, Mulder should have known better by that point. It just frustrates me that the smartest guy in the room could be written as being so stupid.

    And it would have been interesting to see the show change the world, my friend Dave often said the same should have been done with Stargate SG1. You have this capability to visit alien worlds with untold resources to exploit, the potential for colonization, and it's still kept secret? Look at the alien technology discovered and deciphered, and yet none of it is used to alter society?

I think it's a little unfair to call them inept. The conspiracy the Cigarette Smoking Man was a part of routinely stymied them and their bosses at the FBI were complicit.

Mulder and Scully never won because the game was rigged not because they were particularly inept. They often got the evidence only for it to be destroyed later and they routinely had their loved ones murdered or kidnapped.

I guess if Mulder and Scully had been active a few years later they could have benefited from smart phones and been able to prove some of their cases.
