The Ringmaster might be gone, but LA is still full of dangers for the refugees of an alien race. As some struggle to start new lives, others fight to forge a future for everyone. When the one person who can't fight for herself is in danger, it falls to her friends to decide: who will be a hero, and who will need saving?
And more importantly, can they be saved at all?

- Part 3 of Alternian Nation
Buck has struggled with fully accepting Earth as his home, but a possible connection to this world comes in the strangest form.
"An immense saucer descending from the clouds and impacting the ground, as the press and through them the people of Earth looked on in shock and awe. That was the scene in California's Mohave desert two years ago today: the historic first view of the Alternian ship upon its dramatic arrival. Their ship was a refugee ship carrying a quarter million children and young adults ready to settle in almost any environment, but they washed ashore on Earth with no way to get back to where they came from. Civil liberties attorneys successfully lobbied for the Alternians' release from quarantine and in the last two years, the Alternians have become the latest addition to the population of Los Angeles."
The representitives of a race of newcomers fight to give their people a home on Earth- but even without the deadly killer stalking the streets of LA, just surviving is hard enough for some. Can humans and aliens work together to build a better future? Or is it all doomed to end in bloodshed?
One thing is for sure - for sixteen teenagers, this is going to be a dangerous week.
