Plot:The movie begins with a shot of the deepest regions of outer space. A mysterious green radiation emerges from a black dwarf star, causing DNA molecules to form on an asteroid in a nearby violet dwarf star system. The scene then cuts to Mars Vegas, launching the opening musical number with the title screen saying “The Humans Shall Not Defeat Us” in Alien Language 1. The Planet Express crew visit Amy’s wealthy parents Leo and Inez, who are busy destroying the “old” Mars Vegas and constructing a newer, more extravagant one. A group of eco-feminists led by Frida Waterfall protest the resulting destruction of the environment, leading to an accident where a piece of Frida’s jewelry lodges inside Fry’s brain. The destruction upsets Leela also, but Leo attempts to assure her that he has received proper clearance by bribing Professor Farnsworth. Unimpressed, Leela saves a Martian muck leech, the last of its species, from the construction site. To compensate Fry, Leo offers him a free entry to a poker tournament and the rest of the crew a free vacation.
