Episode Summary

EDIT
Thirteen-year-old Kevin Buchannon (Adam Hann-Byrd) lives at the bottom of the high-school food chain, scorned by other geeks, picked on by the jocks. At home, he lives in the shadow of his older brother Josh, a football star whose every accomplishment is celebrated by the boys' father, Alex (Daniel Hugh Kelly). Then one day, Kevin sees a plane crash in the woods near his house. He rushes to the scene with his dog Cody to find a mysterious ship occupied by the severely injured Captain Turner (Chris Potter). Turner tells Kevin the ship is a top-secret experimental aircraft and instructs Kevin on how to bandage and heal his wounds. But Turner reveals more than he intends to, when the strain of his injuries causes him to briefly lose consciousness. When he does, he inadvertently reveals himself to be a shape-shifting alien, lapsing into his real form - that of a monstrous alien. Once the secret is out, Turner admits that he is actually Tyr'Nar, an alien bounty hunter who was escorting a murderous prisoner back to his world when their ship crashed. Tyr'Nar gives the boy a mysterious patch that allows him to fight back against his tormentor. He also offers the support and understanding that Kevin never got from his father. But it soon becomes clear, to us if not to Kevin, that Tyr'Nar is not that alien he claims to be. While Alex Buchannon is anything but the ideal father, the real evil lies in the alien who wants to be take over that role.moreless
