Fringe Science is an inquiry in an established field of study which departs significantly from mainstream theories in that field and is considered to be questionable by the mainstream. A related area of research is the fringe theory. Fringe science may be either a questionable application of a scientific approach to a field of study or an approach whose status as scientific is widely questioned. These approaches are often considered to be dangerous, impractical, impossible, improbable, or unethical.

In the 1970s, Walter Bishop and William Bell worked in a government-funded laboratory and conducted experiments in the field of Fringe Science.

Olivia Dunham states that Walter's practices included but were not limited to "Mind Control", Teleportation, Astral Projection, Invisibility, Genetic Mutation and Reanimation". The show's opening titles also show the floating words "Psychokinesis", "Precognition", "Artificial Intelligence", "Transmogrification", "Dark Matter" and "Nanotechnology" among other less legible words and phrases. In the show's Pilot episode, Olivia takes part in a Synaptic Transfer with fellow FBI agent John Scott.
