But fate have different plans for them - while on the Moon they are given orders to keep their return a secret and prepare for another mission. It looks like Martians have already arrived to Earth and Morgan, Mitchell, Doc Matthews and Lemmy are the only human that can actually tell if the strange objects that were observed are what they saw on Mars.
