The X-Files

Tithonus - S6-E10

Factual error: Lewis Brady had a "Felon wanted by the FBI" file in 1929, but the FBI wasn't called the FBI until 1935; until then it was just the "Bureau of Investigation." (00:34:30)

Rain King - S6-E8

Factual error: In the scene where Daryl Mootz pulls up in his SUV for the rain-making event, there is a shot of the SUV with a front Kansas license plate. Cars in Kansas only have rear license plates. (00:12:55)

Rain King - S6-E8

Factual error: When Mulder and Scully first arrive in Kroner, Kansas, you can see mountains in the background. There are no mountains in Kansas, only valleys and hills. (00:04:40)

Biogenesis (1) - S6-E22

Factual error: In this episode, Mulder says, "In 1996, a rock from Mars was found in Antarctica." The rock ALH84001 was found in 1984, and the announcement that it may contain life came in 1996. (00:17:55)

Triangle - S6-E3

Factual error: The alternate version of Scully is identified as an OSS agent, but the OSS did not exist in 1939. (00:34:35)

The Unnatural - S6-E19

Factual error: The beginning of the episode shows a baseball game taking place in Roswell, New Mexico. A ball smashes into a sahuaro cactus. The only place in the United States of America where sahuaros grow is in the Arizona desert. There are none in New Mexico.

Biogenesis (1) - S6-E22

Factual error: This episode begins with Scully doing a voice-over about the incredible nature of our universe. The scene is very impressive visually, and would have been from the aspect of her oral presentation had it not been for a major error in the script. She says (more than once) that the universe is made up of matter and gas. This should have been "matter and energy". Gas is a form of matter.

Triangle - S6-E3

Factual error: When Mulder is walking out of the cabin in Spender's uniform, the soldiers try to stop him. This is impossible since he is an officer (a lieutenant judging from the shoulder-straps) and they are privates, so they cannot give him orders. The only thing they can do in this situation is to salute him. (00:08:40)

Mistakes

When Mulder and Scully enter the abandoned mine through a doorway, the viewer can see at right in the distance a number of people sitting on a wall, and one crouching in front of the wall with what looks like a dog. They are sitting still, but there is still movement there.
