" This is the Captain , we have been ordered to answer a Mayday call from a Science sub with Stacie Lavelle on board...I'm giving the order to go supersonic , Sea Angel Incident , Priority One . All stations be alert .
He then switches over to another channel .
" Sonar , what have you got for me " , says the Captain .

The super submarine , now in supersonic supercavitation mode moves north west across the Pacific Ocean in pursuit of the MIDAS Science submarine .
FRAME 19 /
Jason McCall approaches the Captain .
" I have been looking at the data Captain . The Science sub seems to be moving toward Mona Tai Island .
Its an extinct volcano based island , uninhabited , not much to go on since the last survey of the area fifteen years ago " Jason tells the Captain .
" Why go to that island , unless the crew have no choice but to go there , it looks like we have got trouble " replies the Captain .

" Thanks for coming over Pierre , I wish to talk with you about a Sea Angel Incident we are involved with from this morning . A MIDAS Science Sub with your daughter on board declared a Mayday Alert . We don't know much at the present time , but I wished to bring you in on whats happening from our side " .
FRAME 21 /
" At the moment I have the Seastar 5 with Captain Adams in pursuit of the Ocean Quest , she is heading close to Mona Tai Island , he has my orders to do what he can to assist the situation " .
Pierre Lavelle replies to the Admiral . " You said it was a Sea Angel Incident J P , what are her chances . She's my only child . Since her mother died we have been close , I don't want to ...." .
He stops short in speaking to the Admiral . His emotions are starting to effect him on what he has just been told .
FRAME 22 /
" The information we have from the Ocean Quest indicates the sub transponder is still working normal so the subs intact and its moving after it was approached by an unidentified craft . The data we have shows a possible Sea Angel origin for the other craft .

Don't worry old friend , we will get her back , I promise you.
Captain Adams has my confidence Pierre , if anybody can bring her back , he will " , says the Admiral .

FRAME 26 /
The Captain turns to Jason McCall . " If the signal is showing under the volcano , then the Ocean Quest must have been taken to some kind of base under the island . I'm going over there to take a look ".
Jason looks straight at his Captain . " I know your background Matt . You lead from the front , but the Captain leaving the sub at this time and situation , I don't know whether the Admiral would be okay with this " .
" Don't worry , its my call Jason , I'm going , secure all systems and surface SEASTAR 5 ".

Captain Adams turns to his XO Tia Anderson .
" Tia , prepare the RSV for launch , I'm going to lead the shore party recon . I'll take the SeaFly over the island , better prepare the Sea Trak Sub Terra , we may need it to get the Ocean Quest crew off the island quickly if I find them . You have command " .

Over the volcano crator of Mona Tai .
" Adams to SEASTAR 5 . Nothing here except a volcano " .

" Marra , what are you doing here , your a long way from home " said the Captain .
FRAME 43 /
The two humans , from different worlds face each other again .
Marra speaks first . " This Island is close to our southern frontier of Tyrannia , we keep a close eye on what the Imperial forces of Lemuria are doing in these waters . I was informed by our scouts that human prisoners had been taken . I listened to your transmissions , so I knew you were coming in your sub craft , thought you may need my help ....so I am here my Captain ".
" Thank you my Princess , your right I could do with your help on this mission .
I think my people are being held underneath the volcano , is there a base under the ground of the volcano " , asks the Captain .
FRAME 44 /
The two of them return to the Jet Bike .
" Its not a base Matthew , its the Cavern of Mona Tai and covers a large area .
" Your people will be prisoners of the Imperial Lord Maggar , he rules this land around here from his Castle Keep below the volcano .
I will show you a way into this land . We must enter in the volcano crator " .
" Thank you my Lady , we can use my Jet Bike , its a lot quicker than walking up the slopes of the volcano . Climb aboard " , he tells the Princess as he starts up the engine as the two of them prepare to take off from the forest .
FRAME 45 /
The Jet Bike takes off and heads up over the volcano....and down into the crator .
" Adams to SEASTAR 5 heading down to recon the volcano crator . Adams out ".

" I did'nt think I would see you again my Princess " said the Captain .
" I did not think this time would happen as well " Marra replied .
FRAME 47 /
The SeaFly descends in the crator and lands on a ledge along side the small lake at the bottom .
" Over there Matthew in the wall of the crator an opening to the Cavern , we should go there " said the Princess pointing the way .
FRAME 48 /
Captain Adams moves the SeaFly to the hole in the cavern wall .
" That hole is small , its not big enough to get the bike through we will have to go on foot " , he tells the Princess .
He switches on the SeaFly Jet Bikes RadioCom to transmit .
" Adams to SEASTAR 5 have landed on crator bottom , sending SeaFly back on remote , withdraw the RSV . I'm going into a cavern below the volcano , I believe the crew of the Ocean Quest are down here , I have found a companion here on the island who is showing me the way .
Track me on my suit com tracker .
Prepare the SeaTrak for Grant Tyree to move it forward to the island when he gets the RSV back on board and await my signal for pick up . Adams out ".
"Okay Princess lets go find a Castle" says Captain Adams with a smile on his face looking at Marra .

" Welcome Matthew to the Underworld of Legend " .
He turns toward her " The forest , its plants they grow down here , the light it comes from the top of the cavern roof ".
The Princess explains ," Yes , the light in this cavern comes from a power station in the north which shines its beams to the roof of the cavern . The light it makes is reflected from the diamond stones in the cavern roof , thats where it comes from , many of the cavern worlds are like this ".
The Captain replies " You do have some interesting equipment down here Marra " .
FRAME 51 /
The Captain looks up at the nearest tree as something moves . A large flying creature looks down on them .
" What is that thing moving up there " , says Captain Adams pointing in the direction of the creature .

" Good shooting my Princess , I'm glad I have you around " says the Captain .
" There are many creatures like this one in these forest caverns , but they are no match for our weapons , have no fear Matthew , I will protect you " confirms the Princess .

" This castle where we are going belongs to the Imperial Empire of Lemuria " asks the Captain .
" Yes , the Lord Maggar is a Dragon Lord of the Grand Council , he is a Reptilian being of the evil one Grand Lord Scar Ma's Commanders , not one to be trusted my Captain " .
FRAME 56 /

" You won't , she's a Tyrannian Princess working for me , don't worry we'll get you to safety " , replied the Captain .
