The X-Files crew are called in to assist the police when it turns out not to be a human infant. Instead it's [insert one of the beasties featured on this site]. Was it a case of a simple mistake on the part of the reporter, or something more sinister? And more importantly, what was it, and what do the X-Files characters do with it?
