Part 1 : Tom Kullerson and his mom, Olivia, arrive by helicopter at the Kullerson Fissure, a massive trench in the earth's crust that goes down 7 miles created by a meteor strike, which also happens to be home to Project ICARIS: a scientific research station built to study the phenomenon. Once there, Olivia gets to work while Tom takes an orientation course of ICARIS with 3 other kids; Jun Wong, a childhood friend who believes in all things mythical and magical; D'Angelo Baker, an animal-loving army brat; and Alexandra 'Alex' Gonzalez, a shy and reserved computer hacker with the online alias "Cinnabot538". However, Tom chooses to run off to see the fissure and barely manages to help Phillip Baker, ICARIS' Chief of Security, save a worker who nearly fell in when an earthquake struck, catching a glimpse of a glowing creature underneath the fissure. That night, Tom catches up with Jun and decides to send a camera drone down into the fissure. The drone shorts out partway down and, despite being warned against it, Tom heads down into the fissure in order to retrieve it. Down there, he discovers a creature caught beneath rubble and frees it, inadvertently making a most remarkable discovery: a real live dragon.
Part 2 : Tom finds himself face to face with the dragon and freaks out. As the skittish beast flies away, he attempts to climb back up but fails and falls down the fissure. He gets rescued by the dragon, who drops him off in a cave. After the dragon's curiosity gets on Tom's nerves, he finds a way out of the cave and heads back to ICARIS to rest for the night. The next day, he can't help but wonder as to what he saw that night, and Jun suggests that it might be a dragon. While Jun believes that the dragons may be real, Alex points out that if they were real, they would be hunted, exploited, and monopolized for profit, causing Tom to decide to keep the dragon a secret. With some help from Alex, Tom finds the cave where the dragon lives and befriends it. While going a flight with the dragon, an earthquake causes them to forcibly land and discover a crystalline cave with an entire realm filled with dragons.

Tom's astonishment is short-lived when his mother calls him and he races home. The next day, sensors are put up and Tom asks for Alex's help in sneaking past. As Tom heads for the cave, Jun catches up and goes down the cave where the Night Light sleeps. She is awestruck to finally meet a dragon in real life but as she attempts to take a picture of it, Tom convinces her otherwise in order to keep their existence a secret and, after naming it "Thunder", brings her to the hidden world. She is amazed and sees a pack of dragons feasting on the crystals. When she approaches, however, they quickly become aggressive and attack. As the trio try to escape, Jun falls down to a cavern while Tom and Thunder are kept busy by the aggressive dragons. Down the cavern, she discovers a two-headed dragon with the ability to breathe fire and ice and unsuccessfully attempts to befriend them by asserting dominance or tricking them with treasure repeatedly. As she laments her inability to train them, the dragon sympathizes with her and realizes they deserve respect. This allows her to bond with them and she names them "Wu and Wei". Together, they escape the cavern just as it collapses. She reunites with Tom and Thunder after the two manage to escape the aggressive pack of dragons. As they fly away, the dragons abruptly stop on their path and growl at a gigantic hole in the wall.

The day begins with our heroes in a classroom learning about the importance of public speaking, a subject that terrifies Alex. The riders practice their speeches in the lair just as they get an alert from the sensors they placed in the Crystal Realm. Rushing in to investigate, they suddenly get attacked by a large horde of white Featherhide dragons that capture Feathers and take her away. While the riders regroup, Jun presumes that the dragon that attacked them could be zombies and D’Angelo; who got bitten by one, becomes convinced that he's turning into one of them. Alex and the riders track the Featherhides to a cavern with a crystal tower where Feathers is being held prisoner and try to rescue her, only to be chased off by a white Titan-wing Featherhide. Alex, refusing to leave her friend behind, summons all the strength and courage she has and goes back in alone to get Feathers back, while instructing the other riders to keep the horde busy, even though by this time D’Angelo has had Tom tie him to Plowhorn to keep his friends safe from him. Through some creative thinking and a hologram that she has made of herself for her speech, Alex manages to sneak past the horde, climb the tower and free Feathers. Tom, Jun and their dragons do their best to hold back the horde and are almost overrun. Luckily, Alex and Feathers come to the rescue by blasting the other Featherhides, realizing that the dragons are actually molting their scales, which makes them far more aggressive than usual. After blasting all of the Featherhides, including the Titan-wing, the riders are saved and the dragons return to their home. Feathers choose to stay with Alex and the other riders take comfort in the fact that Alex can be brave, but only when it really counts.
