Characters

Cameron Turner loves to skate board and hang out just like any other 16 year old skater. Cameron is slightly hostile toward his dad, because of him spending so much time in the basement working on the comics, but still misses him greatly. Cameron hates Hugh to the core and doesn't like him at all especially after starting to investigate his father's disappearance. Cameron cares deeply for Lucy though he doesn't like that she's changed so much and started hiding so much from him. It's also possible that Cameron is an alien. In the episode "The Compound, Pt.2," his eyes glow green, causing the alien that was attacking him to attack himself, and in the episode "The Trial," his eyes glow green again, but this time, he moves the device that was attacking Lucy with his mind. Although Cameron Turner is not an alien he had a chemical that was so close to are DNA implanted in him after he was born called olivine

Boris Walleyska is a slacker and loves to skate, he loves everything and anything science fiction he is a huge fan of Brady Turner but knows not to bring it up a lot around Cameron. He witnesses Cameron's eyes glow green in "The Trial," but he didn't say anything about it.

Lucy Condon keeps a lot to herself mostly about her father. But she is kind and never hesitates to help Cameron and Boris out of a sticky situation. She attended Orion Academy, but she doesn't remember anything until she returned to find out what happened Lucy learned that she was put into a space ship and entered space.

Pierce is the school bully. He claims that doesn't believe in aliens or anything extraterrestrial. He likes Lucy mostly because she is always around Cameron. Later in the show it's revealed that Pierce is robot working for Lucy's Father, Hugh Condon. He soon dies after deflecting an attack that was meant for Lucy. Pierce was later rebuilt. After Pierce finds out that he is a robot, he is able to use his powers at will.

Lawsuit

On June 27, 2013, a suit was filed on behalf of the interns of Alien Dawn's live action crew against the Crook brothers and Larry Schwarz, as well as the companies associated with Larry Schwarz and His Band. Nicktoons was not mentioned in the suit. It alleges that Kevin Hicks was hired on as an unpaid intern working 10- to 16-hour days and was eventually hired on to perform the same duties for pay under a wardrobe assistant title, but that this pay ended and he was again asked to perform the same duties as an intern for no pay. It is alleged that the other interns on the production were performing duties that should have been performed for pay, in violation of the rules and laws governing interns. The lawsuit was settled by August 14, 2013.
