Matthew Star may look like the kid next door. But he isn't. He's the kid from the next galaxy. Matthew hails from a planet called Quadris, where many of the problems faced by earthlings are also encountered. Matthew, when still an infant, was forced to flee from Quadris in order to evade the invasion of that planet by occupants of a neighbouring planet. On earth, with his guardian, he has to battle his enemies who come specially to kill him in order to sever his last link with the Quadris peoples to claim sovereignty. Matthew is unaware that the new girl (Maylo McCaslin) in school is really an assassin sent from his former home to destroy him.
