The CW has released the official written synopsis for "Ground Control to Sara Lance," the season six premiere of DC's Legends of Tomorrow, which will air the first week of May on The CW. The episode is set to pick up right after the events of season five's finale, which saw Sara Lance (Caity Lotz) abducted by aliens and the rest of the Legends heading back to the Waverider unaware. The season, then, starts as the team is working to figure out what happened to their Captain, and Sara is working to figure out how she can get home to Ava (Jes Macallan) and the team.
Earlier today, the network also released the first batch of images from the episode, which primarily feature the characters in their costumes from the end of season five, indicating that many of these come from the first part of the episode, as the Legends are trying to figure out what is going on. You can see them below.

A MISSING CAPTAIN
After a night of celebrating their beating the Fates, the Legends quickly discover that Sara (Caity Lotz) is missing. Trying to keep it together, the Legends are shocked to discover that she was taken by Aliens. Ava (Jes Macallan) sends Rory (Dominic Purcell) and Behrad (Shayan Sobhian) to follow a lead on who can possibly help them find Sara, while Constantine (Matt Ryan) tries to work his magic. Meanwhile, Sara does all she can to try to escape, which includes releasing Aliens into the timeline, but is shocked to learn who one of her kidnappers turns out to be. Nick Zano, Tala Ashe, Olivia Swann, Adam Tsekham and Lisseth Chavez also star. Kevin Mock directed the episode written by James Eagan & Mark Bruner.
...And here's the official synopsis for the season itself:
Having spent last season trying to track down the Loom of Fate in order to bring back their slain comrades, the Legends must now save history from a foe like none they’ve encountered in the past or future. Co-captains of the time-ship Waverider Sara Lance (Caity Lotz) and Ava Sharpe (Jes Macallan) have dealt with monsters, time anomalies, and most recently, villains from Hell, but this season they will face something even more challenging and bizarre ... space aliens.
After one of their own is abducted by a ruthless alien, this new mission becomes personal. It will take more than the combined powers of a dark magician, John Constantine (Matt Ryan); a semi-reformed arsonist, Mick Rory (Dominic Purcell); historian who transforms into steel, Nate Heywood (Nick Zano); and a brother-sister wind-totem-wielding duo, Zara Tarazi (Tala Ashe) and Behrad Tarazi (Shayan Sobhian) to save the world for a sixth time. They must recruit a new Legend, a woman who was abducted by aliens when she was a child and supposedly imbued with powers that will help the team defeat their intergalactic foes. Either that or she’s just crazy... Based on the characters from DC, DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros.
