Mulder and Scully are sent to a small city named Marville to investigate some strange deaths. A long time resident named Elly Lang believes their are goblins and that they are responsible. She carries around a can of orange spray paint to mark the goblins.
Another pair of investigators also joins the two, Webber and Andrews. Their investigation involves a Major and his project on a near by military post. One of the deceased was stationed at this post. The other was retired from the post.
All leads point Mulder and Scully to a top secret military project using some very high tech science that appears to have a few bugs.
What or who is this “goblin?” How far will it go to prevent the truth from being discovered?
