Alien Infiltration research topic and mission.

This Alien mission represents the worst threat to X-COM. Earth governments can be infiltrated by Alien agents which are Human in appearance. This can result in official contact between Aliens and governments at the highest level. The climax of this activity is characterised by intense UFO activity in the vicinity of major cities. The aliens will attempt to sign a pact with an earth government by offering knowledge of their superior technology. In return, the government will allow the Aliens to conduct their activity unhindered.

If a government agrees to a pact then its funding will cease. If successful, the aliens will score 150 points, and an alien base will also be constructed which generates daily activity points, which are eventually subtracted from your score.

Initially, several Scouts will perform investigations prior to the main infiltration attempt.

In the main Infiltration wave, A Large Scout will appear, followed by a Terror Ship, Supply Ship and a Battleship. It has been shown that shooting down all 4 of these craft IMMEDIATELY will delay the coming of the final Battleship, by perhaps 2 weeks. Any delay in shooting them all down will result in the 2nd Battleship making it's appearance really fast and will join the other 4 ships in landing. It has been conclusively shown that shooting down the UFOs or assaulting the landed ships will NOT stop the infiltration from succeeding. Shooting down the earlier ships will delay, but not entirely stop the 2nd Battleship. The moment the 2nd battleship appears in Earth's atmosphere, the infiltration is successful and complete.

When a country is successfully infiltrated, an alien base will be instantly created in or near the country. Always search for the alien base after the 2nd Battleship. And once you know that the base is there, you have several options available to you...
