- The two primitives, who are shown in the opening shot of The X-Files Movie, were played by Craig Davis and Carrick O'Quinn.
- The opening shot of The Beginning - the Season 6 premiere of The X-Files, set soon after the majority of the movie - shows two male scientists from Roush Technologies running across a barren landscape, towards camera. The depiction of this shot from the episode's script mentions, "Anyone who saw the Movie will recognize a wink at the opening shot. Except these figures, we see as they approach, are not the primitives from 35,000 years ago, but scientists".
