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")

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.
