Matthew Star was a prince on the planet Quadris, who was forced to flee to Earth when his planet's government was overthrown by despots. On Earth, he took the form of an ordinary high-school student (albeit one with superpowers), and was accompanied by his guardian Walt, who became the school's science teacher. The American government knew of Matthew and Walt's origin, and used them to act as agents on occasion. Written by

Its hard to remember specifics about this show, but all i know is two things. I loved this show when i was younger, and NO ONE ELSE remembers it! Every sci fi geek I ask looks at me like i have two heads when i mention the name Matthew Star. My mother and I used to watch this show religiously. Te best visual i can remember from the show was in the opening sequence where Matthew is seen playing ping pong with himself. He uses his telekinesis to control the other paddle. If you really think of the competition this kid has for alternate teen sci fi heroes in the last 25 years, Matthew doesn't fare too badly. Up against Evie in Out of this World, Wesley Crusher in Next Generation and the fat kid from stand by me in My Secret Identity; my vote is for Matthew Star!
