The Bittering family took a rocket to mars because there was a war going on at Earth, so it wasn't safe for them there anymore.
All of the rockets on Earth exploded, so the all of the people from Earth that were on Mars were stranded for quite some time.
The kids learned some martian words randomly and the kids changed their names to martian names.
All of the kids and the mom had their skin turning dark and their eyes turning a bright gold.
After living in Mars for a while, all of the humans that came from Earth turned into Martians. They started to adapt to Mars a lot more, so they all decided to move to the Villas because their personality's have all changed.
Earth people finally found a way to get to the people stranded on mars and resue them, but they were all martians now and they did not know that.
