The new series picks up right where the original left off when reporter Chris Rafferty sees Agency Director Dross on TV. Rafferty is certain he saw Dross fatally impaled during the heated battle with the aliens where the Creech sacrificed himself. Now, if Dross is alive, Rafferty questions if anything he remembers actually happened at all.
Dross, who has mysteriously returned from the dead, finds himself in deep trouble for having allowed his genetic engineering program to spin so far out of control. The disappearance of the Creech seems be the triggering event leading to an intergalactic war between two alien races.
