What to do if you see an alien
Who you gonna call?
There is, it turns out, no clear answer. Experts ventured a number of ideas. Suggestions ranged from contacting the Mutual UFO Network or the Department of Defense, to calling your dog, or simply not wasting NYPD’s time with “meaningless drivel.” Apparently you’re wasting your time if you call NASA (they’ll transfer you to the DOD), the CDC, or the NYPD.
So, uh, it seems like the main plan is to hope for the best. There are agencies at work searching for signs of life on other planets, but thus far the biggest danger to the Earth seems to be from regular humans. Now, onto the next question: Where are Mulder and Scully when you need them?
