Earth in the 2050s in the city of Archangel - after several years of war a truce is in effect between a humanoid alien race called the Hing and humans. The aliens got to keep what land they won during the war and Archangel is under their control. Cass (who has a parasite in her that's blood is deadly to the aliens and she needs to get it to the right people so they can use it against the aliens) and her team member, Winston, find themselves in Archangel with an urgent need to find a ship to get out of there with. Lo and behold, she runs into her old lover/fellow soldier Michael Ryan. She thought was dead prior to meeting him again when she goes into the nighclub Heaven to find the owner who can get her that ride out of the city. Derek plays the High Centurion (alien Hing commander) who seeks Cass and her team member. He's devilishly charming as the very authoritative bad guy. Robbi Chong plays Michael's coffeehouse bartender-gone-traitor called "Teri" for short.
The "official" description of the episode:
"It is 2056, six years after the Hing, a humanoid
race, invaded earth. While America fights on,
Russia has reached an uneasy truce with the
aliens, leaving some regions under their control
and other declared neutral. In the neutral city of
Archangel on the Barent Sea, cynical American
expatriate Michael Ryan (Nathan Fillion) runs
Heaven, a small coffee bar and music club,
where shady Russians mingle with Hing soldiers
and other dubious characters. Everything is
agreeably corrupt until Alexandra Nevsky
(Natasha Vasiluk) informs Michael that Hing
commander Sulat Ray (Derek de Lint) is on the
lookout for two NATO soldiers who might be
interested in buying a Hing scout vehicle has
gone missing. Those soldiers, Winston Meyerburg
(Justin Louis) and Cass Trenton (Angeline Ball)
have dodged Hing patrols and found their way
Michael's bar. Cass, who was Michael's lover
before the war she only took up with Winston
because she thought he was dead suspects
Michael can get them the scout vehicle. She
appeals to his sense of patriotism, revealing that
she is carrying a deadly parasite that she and
Winston stole from the Hing and, if it can be
replicated, might defeat the Hing. But it
becomes clear that it's going to take more than
flag-waving and high ideals to get Michael to
risk his neck in this situation."
