They were rebels and powerful folks in the big bad gubmint were against them, so they got to be the underdogs. People like stories about underdogs. Here's how Ex-Comm is described:

Ex-Comm (ABC) - follows a newly-elected President and his top secret “Executive Committee” (a.k.a. Ex-Comm), the government’s covert team of America’s most elite minds who investigate and protect our nation from the strangest occurrences and “conspiracy theory truths” out there.
Might work, but it strikes me as taking a familiar story and then deleting a big part of the reason it was so successful.

Then again, maybe the new Prez is a starry-eyed idealist who doesn't realize that aliens already control everything.
They better not have aliens, otherwise they might give 2K grounds to sue them for ripping off the X-COM franchise.
