Show runner Evan Katz ('24') teases that what occurs in the pilot is "not the event." He adds that the second episode will answer some obvious questions that are left. "What happened to the plane?" "Who are the detainees?" "We don't want people to feel like we're making this up as we go along," says Katz. Is he referring to criticisms some had of 'Lost'? "Everything is designed to answer questions," he says. "We'll spool out some of our mysteries and keep people guessing in a fair way."

I think it's safe to say that whatever "The Event" was...it was responsible for depositing the people now being detained in Alaska. It either brought them, or made them the way they are (which we still don't know how they are different).
I still think the head spooks (or whomever they report to) ordered the hit on the President, then whomever was responsible for The Event rescued the plane with advanced technology (whether that someone is a shadow government, or ETs, we don't know).
Almost more like Heroes (where those with abilities were rounded up one season) than Lost, currently.
