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. They confirmed it was Ray Terrill. Ramon went to Tulsa with Curtis Holt and knocked Terrill out with a tranq-flechette then took him to S.T.A.R. Labs. Just as Terrill started to regain consciousness, Holt remarked to Ramon it would suck if they kidnapped the wrong person. Ramon claimed they were recruiting. Terrill transformed into the Ray and demanded answers. Green Arrow and the Flash entered the room, whom he recongized.

Arrow asked if it was the masks or colorful outfits that gave it away. Holt explained they kept an eye on emerging heroes and metahumans. Ramon felt it was time to meet. Arrow translated it was because he was using his powers in public a lot. Ray was surprised they knew about him. Holt read off their research on him - birth date, college, relatives, and hobbies. They were interrupted by an alert from Vixen. Ray trained under Green Arrow at S.T.A.R. Labs. One night, he was distracted from Jacob breaking up with him and missed the majority of the targets. Arrow yelled at him to focus then shot an arrow at him to get his attention. Arrow reminded him getting distracted in the field meant the difference between life and death. Ray made up an excuse that his ability was more complicated than aiming arrows but Arrow knew it was something in his head holding him back. Ray told him the truth about the break up. Arrow reminded him his poweres were a part of him and to master them, he had to accept who he was then accept his powers.

Ray later returned to S.T.A.R. Labs and asked Ramon to open a breach to Earth-X. Ramon realized his life was so weird sometimes. As he assembled a gauntlet, Ramon advised him against going without backup but Ray was adamant about not getting anyone else hurt. Ramon knew Flash was going to be upset. Ray suggested he not tell Flash. Ramon thought that was fair and admitted he was bummed he was missing out on Nazi Earth. Ramon used the vibrational remnants left by Ray of Earth-X to attenuate the proper breach and informed Ray he would still be in Central City then asked what his plan was. Ray simply stated he was going to find the Resistance before he got killed by Super Nazis. Ramon told Ray to be careful and asked to tell his doppelganger he was awesome and to never go Nazi. Ray crossed over to Earth-X.
