Heinrich and Greta Van Heisen husband and wife scientists along with their young son, Albert, are taken to an abandoned Russian military compound and forced to reverse engineer an alien spacecraft. When a daring attempt to escape goes awry, Greta gets left behind as a fleeing Heinrich makes a parting promise: "I will return for you, my love!"

It's the first day of a new school year in King's Glen, Virginia and there is a new science teacher in town. Heirich Van Heisen is secretly scouting for a few talented high school students to form - THE TEAM.

Engaging in epic battles, they take on Russian Mafia boss Vladamir Kolovsky and attempt to save the world from his horrifying K-Beam weapon.
