FRAME 1 .
Lavelle Marine Laboratory , Omelek Island....hundreds of feet down below the Lab...STAR KEY BASE...the command centre for the Marine Aquanaut Rangers Command......
Admiral Henry and Pierre Lavelle meet in the central control room of the Base....
"Good morning JP , whats the latest on the Panama Incident ," asks Pierre Lavelle .
" Information is still coming in , but it looks like we came off well....mostly farm land was scorched...casualties are light...no fatalities....this time they seem to be giving us a warning and giving us a demonstration of their power....SEASTAR's 2 and 3 are off the coast but no sign of the enemy....I've ordered Operation Cover Up into place ...." , replied the Admiral .
Admiral Henry talks to the Base Commander Myles Rodgers as Pierre Lavelle walks back to the Science Lab .
" Any news on Captain Adams " asks the Admiral .
" He's arrived in Hawaii Sir and moving north out of Pearl on Highway 99 , its good so far " , said Myles .
"Keep me informed I'll be in my office " , said the Admiral as he moves to leave the control room ....
Out of Pearl Harbour , a MIDAS Security Truck heads north on Highway 99 heading for the Science Station near Kuaokala Forest Reserve on the north coast of Oahu Island .
In the driving seat....Matthew Adams ....alongside him Karena Belvoir.....the mission to bring replacement parts back for the SEASTAR 5 following its battle with a Lemurian submarine.......
The huge truck in the early morning sun makes good time on the island highway turning north west on to the 803 .
Karena , who has been sleeping on their journey so far ....wakes and turns toward the Captain .
" Morning Karena , good sleep " asks the Captain .
" Yes Matthew , where are we " asks Karena .
" We are heading towards the north coast and about to turn onto the Farrington Highway....not far away now from our destination " replied the Captain .
The truck slows down to make the turn toward a side road leading to the Research Station .
Here's the turn it will take us into the Forrest Reserve , about one mile down here is the gate to the complex " says the Captain .
The MIDAS Truck climbs up away from the coast road into the Kuaokalu Forest Reserve .
Captain Adams picks up his communication com .
" Captain Matthew Adams calling Lavelle Research Station , permission to enter....sending security codes now ".
The gate to the complex slides open as the MIDAS Truck slowly approaches the gate......
In front of the truck is a large square building near a small lake......it leads to a hidden ramp .....down into the underground Lavelle Research Station......
The truck turns at the bottom of the ramp and reverses towards a loading platform in the base .
Captain Adams and Karena Belvoir climb out of the truck and walk into a small tunnel which will take them to the Science Laboratory . A figure comes to meet them .
" Welcome Captain Adams and Miss Belvoir to Lavelle Research Station , my name is Damien Thor....I run this Station for Pierre Lavelle .
Your cargo will be loaded quickly I'm sure you will wish to be on your way again soon " says the Scientist .
" Thanks , here are my orders and cargo documents Mr Thor " said the Captain .
" Its your first trip here is it not Captain ....first names are acceptable we don't have much formalities here...the station is only run by a few of us....hopefully the new equipment you are taking back for the SEASTAR 5 will last longer in combat , I have made some adjustments so you will let me know won't you if the improvements are acceptable " says the Scientist .
" Yes I will Mr Thor....come Karena lets go back to the truck I have a signal on the truck hand remote , loading is complete ....we will no doubt meet again and I'll let you know how the equipment handles in combat .
Farewell Mr Thor " . says the Captain as he and Karena walk back to the truck .
Back in the truck cab unit , Karena turns to Matthew .
" That did not take long , the guy is strange don't you think Matthew....I've heard some weird stories about this place ", says Karena .
Matthew Adams stars the engine .
" He does seem strange I'll admit . Did'nt want us to stay long , I think he is not from around here their is something about him that does not feel real " says the Captain .
" You think he might be one of them , one of your undersea Aliens " asks Karena .
" Well maybe ...but he is certainly not a little green man ....lets get going we have got a mission to complete " says the Captain .
The MIDAS truck heads back down the side road towards the coast highway.......
Karena continues talking ," You don't talk much Matthew about your undersea people you have met I would like to know more about them " she says .
Their conversation stops as the scanner on the communications rack lights up......" Incoming contact at speed....its big....no identification....possible hostile craft " says Karena .
The Captain looks across on to his scanner .
" The craft is over the back of the trailer , taking evasive action will try to keep him from locking on to us with its weapons....Karena countermeasures on....".
The enemy saucer comes down over the rear of the truck and prepares to fire its weapons....
Captain Adams takes evasive action and moves the truck all over the road.......
" Its no good we can't shake him off , we are in trouble" says the Captain .
He picks up his radio com , " Adams to DSR 1 Taurus we need you now , running out of options " , says the Captain .
Above the clouds DSR 1 Taurus responds to the Captain's request for help .
" Grant Tyree here Captain were on the way down , don't worry Sir back up is here ! " says the Flying Sub pilot .
The Flying Sub moves quickly down through the clouds........
Karla Wayne , Weapons Officer prepares for combat...." Weapons tactical on...enemy craft on screen ....we need to get close Grant ...detecting force field around the saucer...locking on now...pulse cannons full power..weapons hot....fire in four " .
Coming up behind the enemy saucer....the DSR 1 's pulse cannons fire breaking through the force field and hitting the enemy with multiple explosions on its engine pods......
" DSR 1 to Captain Adams ...enemy hit and turning away west ....I don't think they will bother you again today....will give you cover back to Pearl ....Grant over and standing by Captain " .
" Thanks Grant , that was close , good shooting , Adams out " .
" You do surprise me Matthew , I think you knew they might try something to stop us " says Karena looking over toward Captain Adams .
" Yes , I thought we might have an incident somewhere on the road back to Pearl , prepare for the worst and then we get the best outcome....
I had the Admiral transfer a DSR1 from Star Key yesterday over here , just in case " he says smiling at his girl companion as they resume the journey back on the highway .
Some time later the MIDAS Truck arrives at Pearl Harbour and enters the security entrance at the MIDAS Building in the Navy yard .
The cargo from the truck will be loaded aboard the USS Atlantis for its next part of the journey to Omelek Island .
Inside the MIDAS Building Pearl Harbour .
The Captain and Karena talk after taking the truck to the wharf area .
" You certainly know how to give a girl an action filled mission Matthew , that was an eventful trip " says Karena .
I'll try to make it better next time for you....are you coming with me on the Atlantis " he asks .
" No I have received new orders from my Director , I'm here for a few days , will be back on the island soon ....we can catch up then.....safe journey Matthew " .
With its precious cargo on board the USS Atlantis moves away from the wharf and heads out through the channel leading to the open ocean ......
The Atlantis begins to dive to deeper water as it heads south west towards Kawajelein Atoll and Star Key base ......
Two days later the replacement equipment has been installed on the SEASTAR 5 in hanger One at Star Key Base .
The submarine is ready for its next patrol....the crew are on board and prepare for launch.....
Admiral Henry is with Pierre Lavelle at the base Science Centre .
" Captain Adams you are clear for your next mission....SEASTAR 5 IS GO "......
SEASTAR 5 to Star Key Base Control .
Power up on our systems is go , requesting launch clearance , over " says Captain Adams from the bridge of the super submarine ....
" Go for launch Captain , proceed to Airlock One....Goliath on auto systems and motors engaged "
confirms Base Commander Miles Rogers .
The Goliath Launch Transportation System with the SEASTAR 5 on board moves forward towards the Airlock.....
Twenty minutes later SEASTAR 5 emerges into the Pacific Ocean ...another mission in under way.......
On the bridge Captain Matthew Adams....
" Captain to crew , SEASTAR 5 in the channel heading north west , all systems are go , Captain out " .
Hours later the SEASTAR 5 in deep water begins its sector patrol........
Out from a deep sea trench ....a dark craft emerges....a Lemuraian Black Vimana Battle Cruiser....
Its target...the SEASTAR 5 .....moving toward the super submarine the enemy sub fires its weapons......
" ALERT ! ALERT ! INCOMING FIRE.....
" Warning comes from the Hermes Star Control system.....Captain Adams on the bridge " .
Crew to Battle Stations we are under attack....
Tia engage counter measures....Magnetic shields up...." shouts the Captain .
" Weapons defence on auto response Captain , targeting and return fire , weapons hot " replies Tia Anderson the XO .
Explosions around the SEASTAR 5 .....the submarine returns fire toward the Black Vimana.....
The Black Vimana takes a frontal hit on its hull , but continues with the attack on the SEASTAR 5 .
Captain Adams speaks to his weapon's officer Mia Zensaki , " Mia continue targetting the enemy craft , rapid fire...break through the Vimana's force shield.....".
" Helm increase forward attack speed " .
Tia Anderson speaks , " Captain , two of our shields damaged , pressure hull holding ....damage level three we have systems failures ....its getting tough Sir to stabilise our position ".
The SEASTAR 5 continues the attack on the Black Vimana.......
" The Black Vimana is over a reef , concentrate attack on her front we will push her toward the rocks and finish her off "...says the Captain to his XO .
The Black Vimana begins to sink down onto the reef .....taking more hits on her hull .......
Two hits on her propulsion systems send the enemy craft diving back into the abyss.....the battle is over........
Jason McCall gives Captain Adams the damage report following the battle.
" We have suffered some damage Captain to our sides , but the worst is on life support systems....they are compromised ....we. need to get the crew off to safety " says Jason .
" Is it that bad Jason " , asks the Captain .
" Yes , we should head for shallow water for eventual repairs , but the oxygen levels are dropping very quickly " replies the Science officer .
" Steer us to the nearest island Tia , prepare the crew to leave the sub in the Sea Turtle Shuttle " orders the Captain .
" Captain Adams to Star Key base we have an emergency on the SEASTAR 5 , following a battle with a Black Vimana we have suffferd damage to life support....the sub is heading for shallow water sending you co-ordinates now.....crew leaving in Sea Turtle shuttle ,
I will leave shortly in a skin suit to join them....request sub down recovery operation immediate response ....Captain Adams SEASTAR 5 signing off " .
On board the Sea Turtle shuttle ...." The Seastar has reached shallow water Sir , the Captain is leaving the sub now to join us " says Grant to Jason McCall .
" Thats good our auto position beacon on the shuttle is activated , the recovery team should find us very soon . Head for the beach " replies Jason .
The SEASTAR 5 settles on the ocean floor close to an island in shallow water.......
Captain Adams in a skin suit leaves the SEASTAR 5 from an escape hatch and heads for the surface.....the currents where the sub has settled on the bottom near island are strong....it will not be an easy route to the surface and safety.....
The beach....Captain Adams struggles ashore , his oxygen tanks are near empty......
The Captain lies down on the beach.....a lone figure watches him from the rocks.....
The Princess Marra has come to the rescue of the Captain........
The Princess calls out to her sister and the Lemurain Wizard Moka for help for the Captain .
" My Lord Moka , Celina , I need your help , come help me take the Captain to our craft " , orders the Princess Marra .
The Captain is taken aboard a Tyrrannian Ocean Cruiser.......
" Is this the human you met on the island and helped in the battle in the cavern on MonaTai island " asks Celina , Marra's younger sister .
' Yes this is the one , I have feelings for him , he is my friend " , replies Marra .
" He is very handsome Marra , does he have a brother " asks Celina .
" I don't know , we will ask him when he recovers " , says Marra .
Moka is worried......
" Oh no another sister likes the Captain ....what am I to do , King Pathos will not be liking this ...he will blame me ....this is not going to end well , what am I to do with these girls !! says the Lemurian Wizard .
" FRAME 68
Back in the central control room at Star Key Base Admiral Henry and Pierre Lavelle are watching the situation ....
" The SEASTAR 5 is on the bottom in shallow water and the Recovery Team are approaching the position ", the Admiral tells Pierre Lavelle as he joins him in the central control room .
" Air Sea Rescue from Guam are picking up the crew , but no sign of the Captain " .
" I'm going to order a wide search of the area , we will get the Captain back he can't be far ", says the Admiral to Pierre Lavelle .
But the Captain is safe .....but he is no longer in the area.....
Miles from where the SEASTAR 5 rests on the Pacific Ocean floor .
....a Tyrranean Cruiser enters an tunnel entrance to the undersea realm of Tyrrania.....
................Captain Adams is a long way from home .
