Aliens and the Security Council on the X Files

In the famous “memories of a cigarette smoking man” episode of the X Files, it is mentioned that there is some Security Council order reflecting an agreement between the major nations to the effect that any alien entity is to be destroyed on sight, no questions asked. Now, was this just made up for the show, or is it part of preestablished UFO folklore, or is it actually true?


It was made up just for the show.

If you listened carefully, they called it UN General Order 1013, which is the number that Chris Carter likes to hide in the show (his birthday, his production company is 1013, the release date of the XFiles in some markets was 1013).


I thought 10/13 was his wife’s birthday?
