The X-Files is an American science fiction drama television series created by Chris Carter that originally aired from September 10, 1993 to May 19, 2002 on Fox. A pentagon program named "Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program" (AATIP) was officially funded from 2007 to 2012, to identify and evaluate threat from Extraterrestrial entities.


Former FBI officer, John DeSouza, author of The Extra-Dimensionals: True Tales and Concepts of Alien Visitors, professes that X-Files director Chris Carter had "insider" knowledge of government operations in order to present much of his show with a sci-fi twist. Many of the X-files topics and "know how" caught the attention of certain government officials, to the point that inquiries were made to Chris Carter.[1]
