Star-Crossed Star-Crossed [Season 1, Episode 1] Pilot
Shown 17/Feb/14

Much like in The Event , a group of alien refugees landed and were rounded up by the US Military.

The alien teenagers, who look like and talk like Caucasian-Americans, with a few strange freckles and blotchy neck tattoos, are ordered to integrate into the local human High School. The result is closer to Heartbreak High than to Alien Nation . Admittedly they look like twenty-somethings about ten years too old to be in a High School Ö but this is a standard casting tactic in this kind of show.

Roman (Matt Lanter - Timeless ) is the Edward character in this little Twilight Rehash.

Shown 21/Apr/14

A sudden drop in air pressure over the alien ship causes a hurricane. The school goes into lockdown, so a number of sub-plots come together in a confined space.

The ex-girlfriend of Roman (Matt Lanter - Timeless ) drugs him with an alien disinhibitor. This means he loses his temper at the slightest provocation. It also acts as a roofie, so the ex can take advantage of him. Luckily, the big meat-headed alien jock-alpha (his former best friend) knows the symptoms, presumably because he was an addict himself at one stage.

The biology teacher and her creepy murderous boss test the blood sample from the girl who received alien medicine. They manage to be even creepier than the alien terrorist who drug-rapes her ex-boyfriend and steals plutonium from the schoolís nuclear reactor.
