Synopsis by Hal Erickson
According to the truce drawn up after the interplanetary war of 2050, the Hing invaders are allowed to control selected portions of the Earth, while the "native" earthlings control the rest of the planet. It is an uneasy truce, especially in the neutral city of Archangel, where the Hings mingle with the expatriate scum of the earth. Michael Ryan (Nathan Fillion), hardboiled owner of the Heaven coffee bar, prefers to mind his own business -- until a woman from his past gets him involved in a patriotic scheme to rid the world of the Hing menace once and for all. Clearly inspired by a certain Humphrey Bogart picture, "Star Crossed" originally aired on August 13, 1999.
