"Ice" Season 1 Episode 8
When the Government funded Arctic Ice Core Project's final transmission is a crazed geophysicist saying, "We are not who we are", Mulder and Scully join the team sent to investigate. Along with geologist Dr. Denny Murphy, physician Doctor Lawrence Hodge, toxicologist Doctor Nancy Da Silva and their pilot Bear they travel to Icy Cape, Alaska. On arrival at the Arctic base they discover that the geophysicists all killed themselves or each other. The Ice Core Project's mission was to drill in to the Arctic ice and extract core samples to analyse Earth's climate all the way back to the dawn of man. Further investigation reveals that there was a pathogen in the latest ice core samples recovered. It appears that this pathogen got loose among the geophysicists and that it is capable of inducing a killing frenzy in it's host. When the discovery of an infected dog which attacks the group leads to the pilot Bear being infected, Scully orders a quarantine to prevent the pathogen spreading. But Bear refuses to stay and has to be restrained as he attempts to leave, during the scuffle something is seen under his skin, it is surgically extracts and turns out to be some sort of parasitic worm. The location that the ice core sample came from is traced to a meteor buried deep in the ice indicating the possibility that the organism is alien in origin. With the possibility that other members of the group could be infected it soon becomes apparent that the first thing to die is trust.

"Firewalker" Season 2 Episode 9
When contact is lost with a volcanic research team working on Mount Avalon, Mulder and Scully are approached by Adam Pierce, a technician at the Californian Institute of Technology's Volcanic Observatory. Pierce is able to remotely activate the cameras on the research team's survey robot, Firewalker. The picture shows the dead body of one of the members of the team and the shadow of something moving around in a cavern with temperatures in excess of 300 degrees. Pierce asks Mulder and Scully to join him in an investigation. Mulder is concerned about Scully condition following her recent abduction and return but Scully tells him she is back working on the X-files. When they arrive at Mount Avalon, they find three members of the research team, Jason Ludwig, Jesse O'Neill and Peter Tanaka. They describe how the team leader Daniel Trepkos went berserk, smashed the radio and destroyed the base. Shortly after Pierce is strangled by Trepkos. Meanwhile Mulder uncovers Trepkos' notes which seem to indicate the discovery of a silicon based life form living in the Volcano. And that Firewalker accidentally brought back this fungal life form which infected the members of the research team. Trepkos is killing the infected members to ensure the infection does not spread. Scully's medical expertise is invaluable once more, her research indicates that infection only occurs if a person is exposed at the moment that the fungal spores are released, so Trepkos lets them leave.
