Scientific and Technological Advanced Research Laboratories, primarily known as S.T.A.R. Labs, is a research and development firm located in Central City. It became infamous for the December 11, 2013 accident that involved its next generation particle accelerator releasing a dark matter wave that killed over a dozen but turned many into metahumans, people with super powers. S.T.A.R. Labs entered a defunct status and was mostly used as the headquarters of The Flash and team of allies and as a prison for metahumans. Cisco Ramon reported their first external metahuman sighting, Mari McCabe in Detroit and named her Vixen. Flash departed to investigate. Ramon later called on Vixen's help with stopping Weather Wizard from leveling Monument Point. He monitored the battle from S.T.A.R. Labs.

Caitlin Snow picked up a resonance burst from Earth-X and concluded someone crossed over in the past couple of hours near Tulsa, Oklahoma. She summoned Ramon from his Buffy the Vampire Slayer marathon and briefed him. Ramon hoped it wasn't another alternate version of Harrison Wells. Snow admitted she was unable to identify who the traveler was because the burst disappeared as soon as it appeared. Ramon speculated the person would have died. She doubted it and pointed to spiking radiation levels over Oklahoma. Ramon realized it could be evidence of a metahuman.
