The Zeus Faber was an American submarine sent to investigate a crashed UFO in the Pacific Ocean. Nearly all aboard were killed after being exposed to the black oil virus. (TXF: "Nisei", "Piper Maru", "Apocrypha")
It was captained by Kyle Sanford and XO Christopher Johansen during the mission. Most of the crew died due to the actions of the captain, and Johansen ordered the ship to finally retreat. (TXF: "Piper Maru")
The name of the sub initially seems to be a mistake, as it is part Greek (Zeus, the Father of the Greek Gods) and part Latin (Faber is Latin for "blacksmith"). Hephaestus (Greek god) / Vulcan (Roman god) is the god of smiths.
- In reality, Zeus Faber is the scientific name for a saltwater fish, the John Dory. This information is not revealed in The X-Files, however.
