Mulder and Scully are contacted by the virtual consciousness of Richard Langley, which is part of an NSA simulation designed to come to life when
participants die. Langley asks his friends to shut down the program because the entities there have become digital slaves and their ideas are being harvested. Mulder discovers that Erika Price is responsible for the simulation and is using it to aid with her own agenda. He buys Scully some time, who manages to turn off the simulation’s servers, which later cannot be found once an FBI team returns to investigate.
The fourth season of the American television series Star Trek: Discovery follows the crew of the USS Discovery as they face an invisible anomaly, over 900 years after the events of Star Trek: The Original Series. The season is being produced by CBS Studios in association with Secret Hideout and Roddenberry Entertainment, with Michelle Paradise serving as showrunner.
Sonequa Martin-Green stars as Michael Burnham, along with the returning Doug Jones, Anthony Rapp, Mary Wiseman, Wilson Cruz, David Ajala, and Blu del Barrio. Active development on the season began by January 2020, with more time spent writing than previous seasons due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It was officially announced in October 2020, and filming took place in Toronto, Ontario, from November 2020 to August 2021. New filming processes were implemented to ensure safety during the pandemic.
The season premiered on Paramount+ in the United States on November 18, 2021.Bell Media broadcasts the series in Canada on the specialty channels CTV Sci-Fi Channel (English) and Z (French) on the same day as the U.S., before streaming episodes on Crave. On November 16, 2021, it was announced that ViacomCBS bought back the international distribution rights for the series from Netflix, this includes the first three seasons of the show as well as the fourth season. This was due to the planned launch of Paramount+ across Europe in early 2022. Before this buyback, 188 countries outside of the United States and Canada carried Star Trek: Discovery with Netflix Original branding. The annoucement resulted in much anger amongst fans outside North America, as even in the week of the announcement, Netflix was advertising the upcoming release. On November 24, 2021, revised plans were announced to make the fourth season available on the Pluto TV Sci-Fi channel in a selected number of territories without Paramount+, and the first two episodes releasing in international markets where Paramount+ is available, both beginning from November 24, 2021. Also available from that date, is the option to purchase the season on digital platforms in certain international markets.
