The-X-Files-Babylon-1-600x401“Not to worry Mulder. I got Ms. Virgata’s card.”

So you all know how I felt about Babylon. In the aftermath I found a rewrite of the episode by the fantastic Aloysia Virgata. What I love about this story is that it isn’t a total re-imagining. She didn’t truly rewrite it. She revised it. She fixed it. This feels like a second draft. I could go on for much too long on everything I love about it, from the treatment of the Muslim characters, to the interactions between Mulder and Scully, to the social commentary. But I won’t go on, I’ll just beg you: read it.
