Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea (1964–1968): Season 2, Episode 22 - The Death Ship - full transcript

Everyone but Nelson and Crane are removed from the Seaview and replaced by 8 civilians to test new equipment. One of them is a foreign agent who wants to kill everyone on board and use the ship to provoke an incident and start a war.

SKIPPER.

WHAT ARE YOU PICKING UP?

UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT, SIR.
BEARING 1-8-0.
RANGE 2,000 YARDS.

HYDROPHONE.
FAST PROPELLERS
DEAD ASTERN, SIR.

WHAT IS IT, LEE?

[ Scoffs ]
THERE'S A SUB ON OUR TAIL.

SPARKS.

UNIDENTIFIED
SUBMARINE APPROACHING.
MAKE A SIGNAL TO HER.

REQUEST AN IDENTIFICATION.
AYE, SIR.

THAT'S FUNNY. I DIDN'T THINK
THERE WAS A VESSEL WITHIN
A HUNDRED MILES OF US.

[ Man ]
TORPEDOES APPROACHING
FROM THE STERN!



HARD LEFT RUDDER!
SOUND GENERAL QUARTERS.

BATTLE STATIONS.
BATTLE STATIONS.
ALL HANDS RIG FOR ATTACK.

[ Klaxon Blaring ]

[ Klaxon Continues ]

[ Klaxon Stops ]

THAT WAS CLOSE.

READY AFT TORPEDOES.

MISSILE ROOM,
READY AFT TUBES
THREE AND FOUR.

[ Man On Speaker ]
AYE, SIR.
TUBES THREE AND FOUR.

- SPARKS, WHAT ANSWER?
- NONE, SIR. THEY DON'T
ACKNOWLEDGE OUR SIGNAL.

- TORPEDOES APPROACHING,
BEARING 1-0-5.
- HARD RIGHT RUDDER!

[ Man ]
AYE, SIR.

MISSILE ROOM,

THOSE WERE HOMING TORPEDOES.
HOW COULD WE MISS?

THEY'VE GOT NEUTRALIZING
EQUIPMENT OBVIOUSLY.

CHIP, TAKE ALL-OUT
EVASIVE ACTION.

AYE, SIR.
FULL DIVE ON ALL PLANES.
[ Man ] FULL DIVE, ALL PLANES.

WE'RE NOT SHAKING HIM.
THAT'S A PRETTY FAIR
SKIPPER OUT THERE.

I'M NOT SURE THERE'S
ANYBODY ON THAT SUB.

A DRONE?

WELL, IF IT IS,
AND IT LOCKS IN ON YOU,
THEY'RE IMPOSSIBLE TO SHAKE.

STILL WITH US.

WE CAN'T SHAKE HIM.
YOU'RE RIGHT.
IT MUST BE A DRONE.

MISSILE ROOM,
PREPARE TO FIRE ULTRASONICS.
[ Man ] AYE, SIR.

ULTRASONICS?
LEE, YOU DON'T HAVE
AUTHORIZATION TO USE THAT--

THEN I'LL MAKE

[ High-pitched Tone ]

[ Man ]
VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA.

STARRING RICHARD BASEHART,

DAVID HEDISON.

VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM
OF THE SEA.

I'VE GOT THE FULL DAMAGE
CONTROL REPORT. WE CAME THROUGH
THE ATTACK IN GOOD SHAPE.

MM-HMM. DO YOU SEE ANY REASON
WHY WE CAN'T GO THROUGH
WITH THE AUTOMATION TEST?

NO STRUCTURAL REASON.

MEANING YOU DON'T APPROVE
OF THE WHOLE BUSINESS.

I JUST DON'T LIKE THE IDEA OF
LETTING THE SUB GO OUT WITH ONLY
A HANDFUL OF CIVILIANS ABOARD.

WELL, DON'T WORRY, CHIP.
THE ADMIRAL AND I WILL BE
ON HAND TO KEEP THEM IN LINE.

NOW LOOK. SET A COURSE
FOR THE SHIPYARD.
PROCEED AT STANDARD.

AYE, AYE, SIR.

NAVIGATION, COME TO COURSE
0-1-5. ALL AHEAD STANDARD.
[ Man On Speaker ] AYE, SIR.

SPARKS, I WANT TO SEND A CODED
MESSAGE TO ADMIRAL NELSON.
YES, SIR.

SEND, UH, IN CARE OF
GLENN CARTER, PRESIDENT,
SUBMERSIBLE BOAT DIVISION,

INTERNATIONAL
SHIPBUILDERS INCORPORATED.

YES, SIR. GO ON.
ALL RIGHT.

PROCEEDING TO SHIPYARD
ON SCHEDULE TO PICK UP
TEST PARTY.

EN ROUTE WE WERE ATTACKED
BY HOSTILE DRONE SUB
AND DESTROYED SAME.

SUGGEST QUERY OF NAVAL
INTELLIGENCE AS TO POSSIBLE
MOTIVE AND ORIGIN OF ATTACK.

[ Crane ]
UNLESS WE HEAR
TO THE CONTRARY,

WILL RELEASE CREW
FOR SHORE LEAVE WHEN
YOUR PARTY COMES ABOARD.

END TRANSMISSION.

OUR DRONE WAS DESTROYED.

NOW WHAT?
OH, THAT PLAN
WAS A WEAK ONE AT BEST.

THAT'S WHY I ORDERED
THE ATTACK ON SEAVIEW.

IF OUR DRONE COULDN'T SINK
ONE SOLITARY SUBMARINE,

HOW COULD IT POSSIBLY HOPE
TO PENETRATE THE DEFENSES THAT
WILL SURROUND THAT PEACE SHIP?

OUR ORDERS WERE SPECIFIC.
THE PEACE SHIP MUST BE
DESTROYED AT ANY COST.

IT WILL BE.
BUT IN A MORE SUBTLE WAY.

NOW, THE PEACE SHIP
WILL HEAVE TO IN THIS AREA.

ALL AROUND IT,
PICKET SHIPS.

AFTER ALL,
WITH THE HEADS OF SEVEN
MAJOR GOVERNMENTS ON BOARD,

THE PRECAUTIONS WILL BE
BEYOND PRECEDENT.

NO STRANGE VESSEL
COULD POSSIBLY HOPE
TO PENETRATE THE AREA.

THERE MUST BE SOME WAY.

IF WE PERMIT THAT
PEACE TREATY TO BE SIGNED--

THERE IS A WAY. WE'LL PENETRATE
THE AREA WITH THE ONE SHIP
THAT'S BEYOND SUSPICION.

- SEAVIEW.
- SEAVIEW?

THE TEST CAPTAIN CRANE
MENTIONED IN HIS REPORT--

SEA TRIALS OF SEAVIEW'S
NEW AUTOMATED EQUIPMENT.

THE TEST CREW HE MENTIONED
WILL CONSIST ONLY OF NELSON,
CRANE AND EIGHT SCIENTISTS.

ONE OF THOSE SCIENTISTS
WORKS FOR US.

SEE HOW EASY?

I DON'T DIG THIS.

NOW, WHY SHOULD THE ADMIRAL
TURN THE SHIP OVER TO A--
A HANDFUL OF EGGHEADS?

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?
IT'S JUST A TEST. THEY'LL BE
BACK IN THE MORNING.

THE WAY I LOOK AT IT,
WE CAN'T WIN.

IF THE TEST IS A SUCCESS,
THEY'LL PROBABLY CUT DOWN
ON THE NUMBER OF CREW. RIGHT?

NO MORE WORK.

SUPPOSE IT ISN'T
A SUCCESS?

NO MORE SEAVIEW.
AND WE'RE STILL OUT OF WORK.

COME OFF IT, SKI.
LOOK AT THE BRIGHT SIDE.

ON ACCOUNT OF THIS TEST...

WE'VE GOT OURSELVES
A NICE SHORE LIBERTY.

AND I'VE GOT MYSELF
A LITTLE TRIAL RUN
OF MY OWN,

ALL SET UP AND WAITING.

[ Man On Speaker ]
NOW HEAR THIS.

ALL HANDS BE PREPARED
TO DEPART ON SHORE LEAVE.

THAT'S US! COME ON!

THAT'S IT, LEE.
ALL PERSONNEL NOW ASHORE.

GOOD. THE TEST CREW'S
COMING ABOARD NOW.

THEN I BETTER
GET ASHORE MYSELF.
GOOD LUCK, LEE.

HAVE A GOOD LIBERTY.
THAT'S ONE THING YOU DON'T
HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT.

OH, CAPTAIN CRANE
IS JUST AFT
IN THE CONTROL ROOM, MA'AM.

SKIPPER.

THIS LADY GOT SEPARATED
FROM THE REST OF HER PARTY.

THANKS, KOWALSKI. BETTER
TAKE OFF FOR YOUR LIBERTY.
AYE, AYE, SIR.

HAVE A GOOD TIME.
THANK YOU.

CAPTAIN CRANE,
I'M AVA WINTERS.

OH, YES. ADMIRAL NELSON'S
SPOKEN ABOUT YOU.
WELCOME ABOARD.

THANK YOU. I TRIED TO, UH,
FIND THE ADMIRAL, BUT, UH,
I SEEM TO HAVE MISSED HIM.

OH, YES. HE'S STILL TOPSIDE
WITH SOME OF THE OTHER CIVILIANS
WHO ARE COMING ALONG.

[ Chuckles ]
TELL ME, CAPTAIN.

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT HAVING
A GROUP OF TOTAL STRANGERS
RUNNING YOUR SHIP?

WELL, I DON'T KNOW.
IT, UH--

IT, UH, SHOULD BE
AN INTERESTING EXPERIMENT.

[ Chuckles ]
TO SAY THE LEAST.

WELL, SINCE THE ADMIRAL
IS BUSY, I-- I THINK
I'LL GO TO MY CABIN.

- I'VE BEEN ASSIGNED TO "B."
- THAT'S RIGHT.
I'LL SHOW YOU THE WAY.

NO. THAT'S ALL RIGHT.
I GUESS THE ADMIRAL
FORGOT TO TELL YOU.

I'M ONE OF THE ARCHITECTS
WHO HELPED DESIGN THE SEAVIEW,

SO I'LL FIND MY OWN WAY.

THANK YOU.
FINE.

GOOD.

GOOD.

I'LL RELAY THE INFORMATION.

RAISE THE EMBASSY.

OUR AGENT IS ABOARD
THE SEAVIEW.
THE PLAN IS IN OPERATION.

IN 24 HOURS THAT PEACE SHIP
WILL BE ON THE BOTTOM.

WE'LL BE UNDER WAY
IN FIVE MINUTES FOR
OUR BUILDERS' RUN, HARRY.

I'VE ONLY HAD TIME FOR
A QUICK LOOK AROUND, GLENN,

BUT FROM WHAT I'VE SEEN,
THE SEAVIEW IS
AS GOOD AS NEW.

WITH
THE NEW EQUIPMENT WE'VE ADDED,
SHE'LL BE BETTER THAN NEW.

YOU'LL SAY SO YOURSELF
WHEN WE TURN HER BACK TO YOU.

HE'S TALKING ABOUT
ALL THE AUTOMATION GEAR...

HE AND CHANDLER
HAVE INSTALLED, ADMIRAL.

THEIR AMBITION
IS NOT TO BUILD SHIPS,
BUT TO MAKE SAILORS OBSOLETE.

WE'RE NOT TRYING TO MAKE
SAILORS OBSOLETE.

WHY, THIS VESSEL COULD BE
HANDLED BY ONE MAN...

WITH THE EQUIPMENT IT HAS NOW.

YOU'LL HAVE A CHANCE TO
PROVE THAT ON THIS TEST RUN,

WITH ONLY 10 TECHNICIANS ABOARD
AND NONE OF THE REGULAR CREW.

ALL CLEAR TOPSIDE.

WILL YOU TAKE HER OUT,
CAPTAIN?
WITH PLEASURE, MR. CARTER.

LET ME CHECK TO BE SURE
ALL DEPARTMENTS ARE READY,
AND THEN WE'LL BE UNDER WAY.

HARRY, WE HAD ANY WORD
FROM NAVAL INTELLIGENCE YET?

ABOUT THE BOMBING?
NO, NOT A THING.

IT WAS A DELIBERATE ATTACK,
BUT NO ONE'S FIGURED IT OUT YET.

OR THEY WON'T ADMIT
THEY HAVE.

ALL I KNOW IS A SUBMARINE
LIKE THIS ISN'T SABOTAGED
BY FRIENDS.

WHEN YOU HAVE AN ENEMY,
YOU FIGHT HIM.

AH, BUT, JUD,
IF YOU DON'T KNOW
WHO YOUR ENEMY IS,

THEN, UH,
HOW DO YOU FIGHT HIM?

CAPTAIN.
OH, YES.
MISS STEWART, ISN'T IT?

TRACY STEWART.
YES.

I'M IN CHARGE OF COMPUTER
PROGRAMMING AND DESIGN.
I KNOW.

I'LL ALSO BE HANDLING WHATEVER
COMMUNICATIONS WE'LL BE HAVING
DURING THESE TESTS.

THIS JUST CAME IN.
OH. THANK YOU.

YES. FROM THE PEACE SHIP.

THE TREATY WILL BE SIGNED
WITH THE PEACE SHIP AT DEAD STOP
MIDWAY ACROSS THE PACIFIC.

HOPEFULLY.

ALSO, UH,
NO OTHER VESSEL...

SHOULD COME WITHIN
50 MILES OF THAT AREA.

WELL, THAT FIGURES.
YOU KNOW, WE HAVE, UH,
SEVEN HEADS OF STATE ABOARD.

OH, UH, CHANDLER. WILL YOU MAKE
CERTAIN THAT THE AUTOMATICS'
GUIDANCE SYSTEM...

KEEPS US OUT OF THE AREA
OF THE PEACE SHIP?

WELL, WE'LL BE OVER A HUNDRED
MILES FROM THESE COORDINATES AT
OUR CLOSEST POSITION, CAPTAIN.

AND THE, UH, SYSTEM
IS SELF-CORRECTING,

IN CASE WE SHOULD RUN INTO
AN OVERLY STRONG DRIFT
CURRENT, YOU UNDERSTAND.

GOOD. THANK YOU.

READY, CAPTAIN?
YES. JUST ABOUT.

REACTOR CONTROL,
THIS IS THE CAPTAIN.

[ Crane On Speaker ]
REACTOR CONTROL,
THIS IS THE CAPTAIN.

THIS IS REACTOR CONTROL.

- ARE YOU READY
TO GET UNDER WAY, KLAUS?
- YES, CAPTAIN.

VERY WELL. THANK YOU.

ENGINE ROOM.
[ Man On Speaker ]
ENGINE ROOM. GO AHEAD.

ARE YOU READY
TO ANSWER BELLS, ROURKE?

DON'T HAVE TO. CHANDLER HAS
AUTOMATED THE SYSTEM TO RESPOND
TO YOUR OPERATOR SIGNALS.

FINE. I'LL STAY WITH DEAD SLOW
AND STEADY UNTIL WE'RE READY
TO, UH, RUN TESTS.

[ Rourke ]
ROGER.

5,500 FEET.

WE'RE SCHEDULED TO STOP
OUR DESCENT AT 5,800 FEET,

BUT I THINK WE'LL EVENTUALLY
REACH 6,000.

5,700 FEET.

CHANDLER, WHAT ABOUT
THE AUTOMATIC BALLAST CONTROL?

THE SYSTEM IS GREEN,
CAPTAIN.

5,800 FEET.

HOLDING AT 5,800 FEET.

LEE, LET'S GO BACK UP.

STROLLER, KILL
THE MAIN SWITCHES.

[ Nelson ]
CHANDLER, SWITCH TO
BACKUP SYSTEMS.

I'M TRYING.
THEY WON'T RESPOND.

I'LL CHECK THE SERVOS.

ENGINES WINDING DOWN.
REACTOR'S BEGINNING
TO COOL OFF.

[ Crane ]
WE'RE DEAD IN THE WATER.
DEPTH 5,100 FEET.

CAN WE GET TO THE SURFACE?
NOT A CHANCE.
NOTHING WORKS.

NOT EVEN THE RADIO.

[ Nelson ]
LET'S LOOK AT THE POWER PLANTS.

YOU ALL RIGHT?
I'M FINE.

BUT WHAT HAPPENED UPSTAIRS?
WE DON'T KNOW YET.
MAYBE ROURKE CAN TELL US.

[ Grunts ]

STAY HERE. LEE.

HE'S DEAD-- CRUSHED
IN ONE OF THE TURBINES.
GET DR. TEMPLETON.

[ Gasps ]

WHERE WERE YOU
WHEN THIS HAPPENED?
RIGHT HERE...

AT THE REACTOR
CONTROL PANEL.

[ Carter ]
THAT DOOR LEADS
RIGHT INTO THE ENGINE ROOM.

DIDN'T YOU SEE OR HEAR ANYTHING?
[ Klaus ] I DON'T LIKE
WHAT YOU'RE IMPLYING.

AND I WANT TO REMIND YOU
THERE IS ANOTHER DOOR
TO THE ENGINE ROOM...

ON THE OTHER SIDE.

THAT'S ENOUGH.
IT WAS AN ACCIDENT.

OF COURSE
IT WAS AN ACCIDENT.

BUT I OBJECT STRONGLY
TO THIS KIND OF QUESTIONING.

WELL, IT CERTAINLY
ISN'T HELPING US TO GET
THIS SUBMARINE UNDER WAY AGAIN.

I SUGGEST WE ALL GO TO
OUR STATIONS AND TRY TO
TRACE THE TROUBLE.

BEEN TWO MURDERS.
IT SEEMS TO ME THE IMPORTANT
THING IS THE MOTIVE. WHY?

WHY IS ONE OF US
TRYING TO KILL THE OTHERS?

WELL, MAYBE IT ISN'T
ONE OF US.

MAYBE THERE'S
SOMEONE ELSE ON BOARD.

LEE, YOU AND I WILL
SEARCH THE VESSEL. DOCTOR.

CHANDLER, LET'S GET KLAUS
OVER TO SICK BAY.

GLENN, GIVE 'EM A HAND.
THE REST OF YOU STAY HERE.

AND STAY TOGETHER
UNTIL WE GET BACK.

[ Clatter ]

JUST SOME LOOSE GEAR.

CONTROL ROOM.
CONTROL ROOM!

UH--

[ Hissing ]

THE MAIN STEAM LINE IS BEING
CHANNELED INTO THE SYSTEM.

THAT'S A LOW-PRESSURE LINE.
IT'LL NEVER TAKE A FULL LOAD.
IT'LL EXPLODE.

CHANDLER WAS RIGHT.
WHOEVER THE MURDERER IS,
HE'S JUST GETTING STARTED.

JUST HOPE THERE'S ENOUGH
POWDER IN THESE
TO BLOW OPEN THIS HATCH.

WHAT WAS THAT EXPLOSION?

SOMEBODY TRIED TO KILL US.

WHERE'S STROLLER?
I DON'T KNOW.

I TOLD YOU TO STAY HERE.
I DIDN'T GO ANYWHERE.

WE'VE SEARCHED
EVERY COMPARTMENT
IN THIS SHIP BUT YOUR CABIN.

THE DOOR WAS LOCKED.
DO YOU WANT TO
COME DOWN AND OPEN IT?

OH, YES. OF COURSE.

LEE, YOU ROUND UP
THE OTHERS
AND KEEP THEM HERE.

[ Sighs ]

TRACY.

YOU FRIGHTENED ME.

I KNOW. I--

I GUESS WE'RE ALL
A LITTLE BIT EDGY.

[ Chuckles ]
HERE.

I CAN'T SEEM
TO DO ANYTHING FOR MYSELF.

I'M AFRAID OF
MY OWN SHADOW.

THANK YOU.

YOU, UH--
UH, YOU SHOULDN'T
BE HERE ALONE.

NOT UNTIL WE KNOW
WHO THE KILLER IS.

DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA
WHO IT MIGHT BE?

HMM. NONE.

I'M FRIGHTENED.

NOTHING.

WHAT ARE YOU
DOING HERE, JUD?

YOU STARTLED ME, HARRY.
I WAS JUST LOOKING FOR YOU.

BUT I THOUGHT
YOU WERE GOING TO STAY
WITH AVA AND TRACY.

I THOUGHT I'D TRY TO FIND
AN AUXILIARY RADIO
IN THE STOREROOM.

WHEN I PASSED YOUR LAB,
I NOTICED THE DOOR WAS OPEN.

I KNOW YOU KEEP IT
LOCKED, SO--

I WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED,
AND I WANT THE TRUTH.

IS THAT UNDERSTOOD?

NOW, ARTHUR,
YOU AND DR. TEMPLETON
TOOK CARTER TO SICK BAY.

IS THAT CORRECT?
YES. THAT'S--
THAT'S RIGHT. WE, UH--

WE-- WE PUT THE BODY, UH,
ONTO ONE OF THE BUNKS.

- [ Nelson ]
AND THEN WHAT?
- [ Chandler ] WELL, I, UH--

I-- I STARTED TO GET SICK.
I HAD TO EXCUSE MYSELF.

YOU DIDN'T LOOK SICK TO ME.

NOW D-DON'T YOU TRY
AND PUT THE BLAME OFF ON ME.

NOW, YOU TOLD ME TO GO.
YOU WERE THE ONE WHO STAYED
IN THAT ROOM ALONE WITH CARTER.

[ Crane ]
NOW FORGET IT.

NO ONE'S ACCUSING
ANYONE YET.

YEAH. I--
I'M SORRY.

I'M SORRY.

TRACY, WHERE WERE YOU?

I NEVER LEFT THIS ROOM.
I FOUND HER HERE, ADMIRAL.

ALONE?

THAT'S RIGHT.

THEN NO ONE CAN BE SURE
YOU NEVER LEFT HERE,
CAN THEY?

I KNOW YOU WERE
WANDERING AROUND.

AVA,

YOU WERE IN THE CONTROL ROOM.
[ Ava ]
YES, I WAS.

OR WERE YOU JUST
COMING BACK FROM
THE CONTROL ROOM?

I WAS ABOUT TO LEAVE
THE CONTROL ROOM.

I HAD BEEN ALONE
LONG ENOUGH.

[ Chandler ]
NO. I CAN'T STAND THIS.

I MEAN, I JUST CAN'T.
[ Breathing Erratically ]

WE'RE ALL SITTING AROUND HERE
TALKING, ASKING QUESTIONS,

AND ONE OF US IS
A COLD-BLOODED MURDERER.

NOW THIS IS POINTLESS.
WE'RE DOOMED. WE GOTTA
GET OFF THIS SUBMARINE!

NOW, ADMIRAL,
ISN'T THERE SOME WAY--

NOT FROM THIS DEPTH.

WE-- WE COULD TAKE
THE FLYING SUB.

YOU KNOW AS WELL AS I DO
WE CAN'T LAUNCH HER
WITHOUT POWER.

WELL, HOW ABOUT THE MINI-SUB?
THAT COULD BE
LAUNCHED MANUALLY.

FORGET IT.
WOULDN'T LAST 30 SECONDS
AT THIS DEPTH.

WHEN CHANDLER
LEFT YOU ALONE WITH CARTER,
WHAT HAPPENED?

CARTER SAID HE WAS
GOING BACK TO
THE CONTROL ROOM.

HE SAID IT MADE
HIS FLESH CRAWL TO BE IN
THE SAME ROOM WITH TWO DEAD MEN.

MM-HMM. AND THAT'S
THE LAST YOU SAW OF HIM.

THAT'S RIGHT.

WHERE IS CHANDLER?

CAN'T YOU STOP IT?
HE'LL BE KILLED.

THERE'S NOTHING
I CAN DO WITHOUT POWER.

IT'S MADE TO RELEASE
FROM THE SUB
IN AN EMERGENCY,

AND THERE'S NO WAY
I CAN BRING IT BACK IN.
LET'S GO TO THE CONTROL ROOM.

LET'S SEE IF
THE MONITOR WORKS
ON AUXILIARY POWER.

[ Gasps ]

MERCURIC CYANOXIDE.

THE COFFEE IN THIS POT
MUST BE FULL OF IT.

YOU ALL KNOW WHAT
MERCURIC CYANOXIDE IS.

JUD.

I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING
ABOUT POISONS.

TRACY.

CHEMISTRY WAS
MY WORST SUBJECT,
ADMIRAL.

AVA.

MERCURIC CYANOXIDE.
HGOLN2.

IT, UH, WOULD BE
A SOLUBLE POWDER, PROBABLY
TASTELESS AND ODORLESS.

[ Nelson ]
THEN YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS.
WELL, I COULD DEDUCE...

SOME OF ITS PROPERTIES,
BUT I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS
OR WHAT IT'S USED FOR.

YOU CLAIM THAT NONE OF YOU
EVER USE MERCURIC CYANOXIDE.

BUT I CAN TELL YOU
THAT ALL OF YOU
USED IT MANY TIMES.

LIQUID SOLDERING FLUX.

ALL RIGHT. WE'VE ALL USED
SOLDERING FLUX, BUT NO ONE
THINKS OF IT AS A POISON.

NO ONE BUT THE MURDERER,
OBVIOUSLY.

IT'S EMPTY.
POOR ARTHUR WAS RIGHT.

WE DON'T HAVE A CHANCE.
WE'RE ALL GOING TO
BE KILLED.

SOMEONE'S TRYING TO
KILL US OFF ONE BY ONE. WHY?

WHY?

WHAT DOES HE WANT?
THE SEAVIEW OF COURSE.

WELL, ASSUMING
THAT'S THE CASE,
THERE MUST BE A REASON.

"HE"? HOW DO WE KNOW
IT ISN'T A WOMAN?

[ Nelson ]
WELL, WHOEVER IT IS,
WE HAVE TO KNOW WHY.

LEE, CAN YOU GET ME
A FIX ON OUR POSITION?

YES. A ROUGH APPROXIMATION.
ALL RIGHT.
AS CLOSE AS YOU CAN.

YEAH. RIGHT.
YOU TWO GO ALONG WITH
CAPTAIN CRANE.

JUD, GIVE ME
A HAND HERE.

WHAT'S WRONG?

NOTHING. IT'S JUST
THAT I WAS POSITIVE
TEMPLETON WAS OUR MAN.

WHY?

OH, HE WAS...

AN INTELLECTUAL ODDBALL.

I NEVER COULD TRUST
A MAN LIKE THAT.

I'LL, UH--
I'LL WAIT FOR YOU OUTSIDE.

STROLLER.

STROLLER!

STROLLER!

STROLLER!

ALL RIGHT, STROLLER.

GET IT OFF ME.

I WAS JUST
GOING TO HELP YOU.

YEAH. LIKE YOU HELPED
THE OTHERS.

YOU PULLED THE HINGE PIN.

NO, HARRY. NO.

WHERE DID YOU GO
AFTER YOU LEFT SICK BAY?

I WENT TO MY CABIN
TO GET A PACK OF CIGARETTES.

I DON'T HAVE TO ANSWER
YOUR QUESTIONS, NELSON.

I WILL NOT HAVE MY INTEGRITY
QUESTIONED BY YOU OR ANYONE
ELSE. DO YOU UNDERSTAND?

I UNDERSTAND THERE ARE
ONLY FIVE OF US LEFT,
AND ONE OF US IS A MURDERER.

DISCOUNTING CRANE AND MYSELF,
THAT LEAVES YOU AND THE WOMEN.

I DON'T THINK A WOMAN
COULD HAVE PULLED THIS OFF.
THAT LEAVES YOU.

YOU'RE MY PRIME SUSPECT,
STROLLER.

NOW GET UP.

AND DON'T DO ANYTHING
THAT'LL MAKE ME SHOOT FIRST
AND ASK QUESTIONS AFTERWARDS.

SIT DOWN THERE, JUD.

LEE.

WHAT'S OUR POSITION?

AS FAR AS
I CAN FIGURE OUT,

JUST ABOUT HERE.

TRACY, WHERE'S
THE PEACE SHIP?

COORDINATE 4-7-5-8.
HMM.

[ Chuckles ]
FIFTY MILES AWAY.

AND DRIFTING CLOSER
EVERY HOUR.

NOW I KNOW WHY THE MURDERER
WANTED SEAVIEW.

TO TORPEDO THE PEACE SHIP.

THAT'S WHY SEAVIEW
WAS SABOTAGED
IN THE FIRST PLACE.

I'M GOING TO MAKE CERTAIN THAT
SEAVIEW'S TORPEDOES ARE NOT
USED AGAINST THE PEACE SHIP.

[ Chuckles ]
[ Crane Shouts ]
WHAT'S SO FUNNY?

DON'T YOU REALIZE...

THAT OUR KILLERS
DON'T WANT THE SEAVIEW
OR HER TORPEDOES?

HE WANTS OUR
NUCLEAR MISSILES!

WE'RE GOING TO
DESTROY THOSE TOO.

GO AHEAD, LEE.

COME OVER HERE, TRACY.
SIT DOWN.

BRACE YOURSELF.

THERE'S GONNA BE
A LITTLE EXPLOSION.

WELL, JUD,

GOT ANY OTHER MOTIVES?

I SUGGEST YOU ASK AVA
THAT QUESTION.

SHE KNOWS WHAT I MEAN.

SHE'S BEEN
KILLING US OFF ONE BY ONE...

SO SHE CAN DELIVER
THE SEAVIEW AND HER MISSILES
TO WHOEVER SHE'S WORKING FOR.

NOW THAT SHE'S FAILED,
SHE KNOWS THEY'LL KILL HER.

YOU KNOW THAT
ISN'T TRUE, HARRY.

HMM. WELL, HE DOESN'T NEED
PROOF TO MAKE AN ACCUSATION.

REALLY?

TAKE A LOOK IN HER PURSE.

OH, HARRY.
[ Chuckles ]

YOU CALL THIS PROOF, JUD?

WHAT MORE DO YOU NEED?

SHE SLIPPED THAT GUN
OUT OF THE CABINET
AND INTO HER PURSE.

WHY? TO KILL US. THAT'S WHY.

I FELT SICK,
AND I WANTED TO GO
TO MY CABIN,

AND I WANTED SOMETHING
TO PROTECT ME.

EVERYBODY OUT!

IT WAS A BOOBY TRAP, ADMIRAL.
I'LL NEED A FIRST AID KIT.

WANT ME TO GET IT, ADMIRAL?
COME IN HERE.

NO. I'LL GET IT.

LET ME LOOK AT YOU.
HMM.

[ Sighs ]
HERE. LEAN BACK.

HOW IS IT?
PROBABLE CONCUSSION.

HE NEEDS TREATMENT.
CAN YOU HANDLE IT?

[ Chuckles ]
MY FATHER WAS
A COUNTRY DOCTOR, ADMIRAL.

I WAS THE ONLY NURSE HE HAD.

ALL RIGHT. GO AHEAD.

WHERE'S AVA?
SHE'S IN HER ROOM.

HERE.

WON'T HURT.

[ Knocks ]
[ Ava ]
WHO IS IT?

NELSON.

[ Sighs ]
I JUST WANTED TO SEE
IF YOU WERE ALL RIGHT.

I THOUGHT I'D TRY
AND GET A LITTLE REST.

WELL, WHEN YOU WAKE UP,
STAY HERE, CALL ME
IN THE CONTROL ROOM.

I DON'T WANT ANYTHING
TO HAPPEN TO YOU.

HAVE YOU FIGURED OUT
WHICH ONE OF US
SET THE BOOBY TRAP YET?

NO.
PERHAPS I CAN BE OF SOME HELP.
HERE. TAKE A LOOK AT THIS.

LOOKS LIKE THE DETONATOR
WAS BUILT FROM A COMPUTER
PART, DOESN'T IT?

IT'S A RELAY CELL.
AH, YOU'D KNOW MORE
ABOUT THAT THAN I WOULD.

BUT THERE'S SOMEONE ABOARD
WHO KNOWS COMPUTERS
ALMOST AS WELL AS YOU DO.

TRACY STEWART.

JUST A MINUTE, TRACY.
CAN I SEE THAT?

[ Chuckles ]
IT'S JUST
A MILD SEDATIVE.

WHAT'D YOU THINK
IT WAS? CYANIDE?

ALL RIGHT. GO AHEAD.

ARE YOU SURE YOU DON'T
SUSPECT ME EITHER?

DON'T BE SILLY.

REACTOR CIRCUITS?

OPERATIONAL.

CONTROL CIRCUITS.
OPERATIONAL.

MM-HMM.

BUOYANCY CONTROL CIRCUITS?

OPERATIONAL.
THAT'S IMPOSSIBLE!

EVERY CIRCUIT ON THE BOAT
IS OPERATIONAL,
AND NOTHING WORKS.

[ Buzzes ]

HELLO. HELLO.

IT'S AVA.

AVA?

AVA.

AVA!

ADMIRAL, I WAS ASLEEP. I--
I CAN'T TELL YOU IF ANYONE
LEFT THE CONTROL ROOM.

AND NEITHER CAN I.
I WAS WORKING.

ANYONE COULD HAVE LEFT
FOR A MINUTE OR TWO.

THAT DOOR'S OPEN.

IT LEADS INTO YOUR CABIN.

THIS IS RIDICULOUS.

NONE OF L-- NONE OF US LEFT
THE FRONT OF THE BOAT...

AFTER AVA WENT TO HER ROOM.

YOU MAY HAVE BEEN ASLEEP,

AND YOU MAY HAVE BEEN
LOST IN YOUR WORK, BUT...

I WAS AWAKE AND FULLY AWARE
OF EVERYTHING THAT WAS
GOING ON AROUND ME.

AND I TELL YOU,
NONE OF US HAD A CHANCE
TO KILL AVA.

ONE OF US DID.

[ Tracy ]
COULDN'T-- COULDN'T
SHE HAVE KILLED HERSELF?

CHANDLER DID.

[ Nelson ] CHANDLER DIDN'T
KILL HIMSELF. HE WAS TRYING
TO GET AWAY ON THE MINI-SUB.

THEN...

WHO KILLED HER, ADMIRAL?

WELL, THE AMRAC
CIRCUITS CHECK OUT.

SWITCHES ON.

NO. NOTHING.

KEEP TRYING. WE GOTTA
FIND OUT WHAT'S WRONG.

TRACY, LET'S START OVER
FROM THE BEGINNING.

I THINK I FOUND SOMETHING.
LOOK HERE.

SOMEBODY'S BEEN TAMPERING
WITH THE MAIN POWER LINE.

SEE, UH, THESE WIRES
HAVE BEEN DISCONNECTED
AND, UH-- AND--

ADMIRAL.

ADMIRAL!

[ Shouts ]
CAN'T YOU DO SOMETHING?

10,000 VOLTS.
THERE'S NOTHING TO DO.

[ Exhales Sharply ]

HE'S-- HE'S DEAD.

THESE-- THESE WIRES
HAVE BEEN STRIPPED.

IT WAS DELIBERATE.

ONE OF YOU KILLED HIM.

WHAT IS IT?

I-- I JUST WANTED
TO MAKE SURE YOU WERE
ALL RIGHT.

WHERE'S STROLLER?
HE WAS RIGHT BEHIND ME.

I DIDN'T DO IT.
IT WASN'T ME.

IT WASN'T ME!
IT WASN'T ME!

IT WASN'T--
[ Whimpering ]

NO. NO, PLEASE!
BELIEVE ME! I DIDN'T DO IT!

I DIDN'T! I--

[ Gasping ]

- WHY DID YOU DO IT?
- I DIDN'T.
I SWEAR I DIDN'T.

NOW LOOK. ONLY TWO OF US
ARE ALIVE ON THE SHIP.
I DIDN'T DO IT. YOU DID!

I SWEAR. IT WASN'T ME.

[ Gasping ]

YOU TELL ME THE TRUTH NOW!
WHY DID YOU DO IT?

I SWEAR.
IT WASN'T ME. IT WASN'T!
PLEASE BELIEVE ME.

[ Creaking ]

WE'RE MOVING UP
TO THE SURFACE.

[ Panting ]

I KNOW. WE'RE IN THE AREA
OF THE PEACE SHIP.

WE'VE GOTTA GET OUT OF HERE.

WHO? WHO COULD IT
POSSIBLY BE?

[ Grunts ]

[ Panting ]

STAY HERE.
DON'T FOLLOW ME.
YOU'RE SAFER. UNDERSTAND?

[ Clatter ]

YES, CAPTAIN CRANE.

ARTHUR CHANDLER.
[ Laughing ]

YOU'RE WONDERING HOW
I GOT OFF THE MINI-SUB.

WELL, I WAS NEVER ON IT.

AND NOW I'M GONNA
DESTROY THE PEACE SHIP...

WITH SEAVIEW'S TORPEDOES.

[ Laughing ]

[ Gunshot ]

I STILL DON'T UNDERSTAND...

WHY YOU HAD TO
PRETEND YOU WERE DEAD.

WELL, LEE AND I FIGURED
THAT, UH, THE KILLER WAS
WATCHING US ALL THE TIME.

HOW?
OH, PROBABLY FROM
THE VENTILATION SYSTEM.

IT RUNS FROM ONE END
OF THE SUBMARINE
TO THE OTHER.

WE PLANNED MY ACCIDENT
SO HE'D FORGET ABOUT ME,

AND I'D BE READY
WHEN HE MADE HIS MOVE.

WELL, WHY WEREN'T YOU KILLED
WHEN YOU TOUCHED THE WIRE?

OH, THAT. WELL, UH,
BEFORE I TOUCHED IT,
I SWITCHED...

FROM A 10,000 VOLT CIRCUIT
TO ONE OF LESSER VOLTAGE.

RESULT: NOTHING BUT SPARKS.

WELL, I DO WISH YOU TWO
HAD LET ME IN ON IT.

FOR A MOMENT THERE
I THOUGHT YOU WERE
GONNA KILL ME.

I ALMOST DID.
