Stranded on Earth the Coneheads must blend into their new surroundings in New Jersey in order to stop a group of following secret service agents aiming to find the stranded alien family. During their time on Earth the Coneheads start a family with the birth of a daughter, Connie played by Michelle Burke. Finally, the Remulkian space fleet arrives and rescues the Coneheads taking them back to their home planet; once returned to their own society Beldar realizes his family enjoyed their life in New Jersey and wish to return. The Remulkian's then place Beldar in charge of the invasion force destined to take over the planet Earth; Beldar eventually manages to convince the invasion force the human race is equipped with a large amount of deadly weapons that will make an invasion almost impossible. To complete his return to New Jersey, Beldar must convince his fellow aliens that he has been killed by humans and they should return to their home planet.
