Season 6 begins with new events and surprises. It seems Mulder discovers the wreckage of a legendary ship missing from World War II. It is that ship that suddenly appeared in the Bermuda Triangle and turned out to be a time gate. On the other hand, Scully should use an alternative plan to try to get the FBI to help her again.
This was a series still alive with all of the possibilities of being a big, hit television show. It was, in other words, a show playing offense, not a show trying to hang onto its audience for dear life.
