[Male Reporter]

We are live-


California's Mojave Desert, five years ago-

our historic first view

of the alien ship Gruza.

Theirs was a slave ship...

carrying a quarter-million Tenctonese bred

to adapt and labor in any environment.

Physically stronger than human beings,

with keener senses and two hearts...

these alien Newcomers have joined

the California workforce...


the L.A. Police Department.

They've been

welcomed by many...

- but feared and hated by so-called Purists.

- [Shouting]

With no way to leave Earth, the Tenctonese

Newcomers have become the latest edition...

to the population

of Los Angeles.
