SEASTAR 5 INVADERS FROM THE ABYSS - EPISODE FIVE OCEAN WARS .

It has been eight months since Matthew Adams , former U.S. Navy  Aquanaut and Navy Seal Commander went into training with the MARINE AQUANAUT RANGERS COMMAND on Omelek Island , Kwajalein Atoll , Pacific Ocean .

 

The day has now come when he will take command of the United  Submarine  SEASTAR 5 ......the World's first Supercavitation Power equipped Submarine Carrier Battle Cruiser.....and lead the fight to defend Earth's last frontier from the Invaders from the Abyss .

FRAME 1.....

Early morning , the Lavelle Marine Laboratory....the morning delivery of mail arrives in a Navy Humvee transport on the west coast of the island .

FRAME 2.....

                        Matthew Adams is in the northern boat house with his Power Boat the  'Sea Mist ' .

FRAME 3.....

The door to the boat house opens .....and a grey haired figure enters and stands next to the Power Boat .

FRAME 4....

                   " Good morning Admiral Henry " said Matthew Adams to his visitor at the Boat House .

 

                 Admiral Henry /   "Morning my Boy .

                   " I thought you would be over here . The day when you take command has arrived  ".

 

FRAME 5.... 

Admiral Henry / " Your training went well , I'm impressed how you have taken to your new role in the unit ".

 

Matthew Adams /  "Thank you  Sir , I'm ready , just been looking up the latest stats for the patrol" .

FRAME 6....

              " Come , I'll walk you over to the Control Centre , we can talk on the way " said the Admiral .

FRAME 7...

                The two men walk along the shoreline on the island toward the Lavelle Marine lab complex .

 

 " Your crew are boarding the SEASTAR 5 Matthew . I've pulled together the best bunch I have available , we are a bit short of front line people at the moment ".

"The Executive Officer who will be with you is Jason McCall , he's ex  navy man who has been on the Seastar Programme from the begining . He has also been involved with the sub's underwater testing around the island .

Thought you might need a good technical officer who has experience of the tech side on the boat " said the Admiral to his new Captain .

 

" Admiral , the tech equipment we have on the Seastars , its way beyond anything in the navy I have ever seen .

The equipment is two generations a head of anything in development , how did we get there so quickly " asks Captain Adams .

FRAME 8.....

                                              The Admiral stops and turns to face his new Captain .

 

" You have been thinking about things Matthew and your right the tech stuff we have is advanced , at least three generations beyond what everyone else has ".

 

" We have not got there on our own , we did have some help along the way .

The help started in the nineteen forties when we recovered some alien saucers which had crashed landed on Earth .

Over the years from there we had face to face meetings with many people from out there beyond our planet , not all were willing to help us , but some did " .

They continue to give us assistance and you will meet with some of them very soon .

 

" But they are not the same races which live in the oceans of the world , thats a whole different story .

When we found out we were not alone in the oceans on this planet in the sixties , we started to do research and learned a lot about what was going on below the surface world of ours .

Some of the people we found down there in the Abyss would do us harm .....so we needed the best equipment " .

 

I'm glad our Alien connections brought us the technology to help in these Ocean Wars we are now fighting ".

 

" The enemy in the ocean is  like nothing the World has faced before they are a more aggressive lot .

 But of course I know you have  met some of them on the island in Hawaii , your close encounter , so you have some idea of what we are up against " .

 

" So Captain Adams , thats the bigger picture for you , something for you to think about " .

 

 

FRAME 9.....

" Wow that some statement Admiral .....I did not know the full story ......I wondered about things when I was doing  the training programme , but you certainly have surprised me in every way " said Matthew Adams looking straight at Admiral Henry .

FRAME 10....

" Thats no problem Matthew , the whole show always take people by surprise when they learn the true history of this planet.....we are still learning ....a lot of the details we still don't know .

 

Our hybrid technology we have created has taken us years to this place in time , the SEASTAR Programme for defence is the result to protect us from the danger from below .

 

"Your now part of the most secret military programmes the Earth has ever seen....and I have every confidence in you to command one of  these new machines of ours ".

 

"They are the  most advanced submarines that our kind have built , but we still only have five of them ".

The first four SEASTAR's were battle cruiser class , the Five is our first Carrier ".

" The technology is still being developed but we are moving forward with it and getting better with each new vessel as it is launched " .

 

"The other seven subs in the fleet are a long way from coming into service with us .

Pierre Lavelle our technical wizard is doing his best to get the others built , but its a long process " .

 

" So , lets get you to your command Matthew , we can talk things over again when you come back from this patrol " said the Admiral .

 

The two of them enter the Lavelle Marine lab and go down in the lift to the underground base complex .
