What Would Be Next?

A family of four lives in a paradise. They are the survivors of a colony. While doing research in some remote place, they missed an evacuation and had to stay on Mars. Now twenty years later, a rocket arrives and they are going to go home. The weird thing is that while the father has aged normally, his whole family is still the same age (young wife, teenage daughter and son). Those who arrive are confused by the above issues. One actually knew the son who should be his age. It turns out that John Hathaway, the father, lost his whole family to some sort of Martian virus. But he was a master engineer. He produced androids of his whole family Of course, he had to build them in his image, using features that he found attractive. The issue in this episode is what do they do now? What is next for the family when only one of them is truly human?
