|On September 17, 2014, alien species from Atria, known as "The Atrians", arrive on Earth where people's unwelcoming reactions provoke them, and the two species begin a war. A six-year-old Emery finds Roman, an Atrian who had escaped and has hidden in their shed. The two later become friends; however, their friendship is cut short when the military shoots him. Ten years later when Emery goes back to school after spending four years in the hospital dealing with immune deficiency, officials announce that seven Atrians will attend the same high school. In order to help her friend Julia, Emery leads her to the Atrians' cipher, but are unsuccessful in finding the cure they need. Emery later learns about Roman and how he survived being shot. After a confrontation in school between Roman and Eric, Roman's friends are on a mission to crash an upcoming party, where Eric is attacked by Drake, while Roman is able to escape with Emery when the police raid the party. In the final scene, Roman heals Julia, while his father is shot by Emery's father by accident.|

|There is an explosion at the Sector, injuring some of the human personnel. As Roman's family is preparing for the funeral, they are visited by their Uncle, Castor, who wants to take over where Roman's father left off. Due to animosity between them, Roman rejects his uncle's bid to become the new Atrian leader and asserts his birthright, taking on the role himself. At school, Roman avoids Emery after her father's accidental shooting of his own father. Emery later campaigns against the Red Hawks at a school board meeting to allow the Atrians to attend the school's homecoming carnival. Roman reluctantly agrees to attend in order to protect Emery, who is being targeted by the Trags, the Atrian extremist group, who are seeking vengeance for Nox's death. Roman later stops and confronts the Trag assassin, learning that he is an Atrian who has had his markings removed. Roman yields the Atrian leadership to Castor, but indicates that he does not trust him and will not hesitate to have him deposed.|

|With the tenth anniversary of the Atrians' arrival looming, Gloria arranges for Emery's class to be permitted inside the Sector to witness a commemoration ceremony. While Roman objects out of concerns for Emery's welfare, she attends anyway and, with Grayson, attempts to make a video of Atrians telling their Arrival Day stories. Most are hostile, but Sophia agrees to be interviewed, to Roman's chagrin. The side effects of being cured with Cyper are showing up in Julia; her veins are turning blue. Roman asks Teri for the cure, a plant called Vire. She refuses, due to her feelings about their shared romantic past. After helping him avoid the wrath of his mother, Teri provides the cure, though warns Roman that it has never been administered to a human before, and that there may be side effects. Julia consumes the Vire, and her veins return to normal. During the ceremony, the Red Hawks hack the video that Grayson and Emery made, and broadcast a racially vilifying message. Roman gives a speech afterwards, while Drake, in an initiation for the Trags, breaks into the Atrian starship and retrieves a hollow, wireframe cube for Teri's mother Vega, their leader. Emery discovers that Grayson and his parents are Red Hawks, and ostracises him. Vega reveals that the cube produces Black Cyper, a weapon deadly to humans. Teri joins the Trags, and Gloria is revealed to have an Atrian child.|
